It's hog heaven in Trekkie-land! A series of revealing stills are making their way around "teh internets" showing us the overall look of the upcoming J.J. Abrams revival of the Star Trek franchise.
Seeing all the beautiful people standing there together passing themselves off as the original Enterprise crew, there's a knee-jerk, purist reaction to dismiss this new cast as "Dawson's Trek" or "NCC-90210." And the more hardcore Trekkie may be quick to point out the obvious anachronism of having Chekov in this cast which supposedly takes place in the "early years" of Kirk's tenure as Captain when everyone knows he didn't come along until later and would have been too young to be there. Granted. HOWEVER, it's exciting, and seeing the collection of pics as a whole, it's not hard to muster some enthusiasm and wear the fanboy hat again for Trek. (Do check out the source link for all of the pics.) How it will turn out is uncertain, but one thing is for sure, this tired Trek franchise just got a huge injection of adrenaline.
