Sylar Meets Spock

Between sick kids, sick me, a swamped (and late) workload at the office, and the various inanities and mundanities of what we choose to call "normal life" around our house, I haven't had much time for birding lately, much less time for catching up on the entertainment world. Heck, I don't even remember the last time my Wonderful Wife and I got to sneak out to see a movie together. So please forgive me if I'm a little behind the times here in my most recent discovery.

I'm so far removed from "what's out and what's coming" that until this morning, I had no idea there was even a new Star Trek movie in the works. And apparently, it's basically finished and just waiting for the end of the school year to release for maximum exposure and attendance.

Anyway, I saw the trailers this morning, and it looks like it just might be an interesting addition to the Star Trek dynasty. Here's the preview I liked the best (see the other one here):



Looks pretty cool so far! But is that really Sylar (Zachary Quinto) playing the part of young Spock?!? That certainly puts a whole new spin on the old "Vulcan mind meld" thing!

Hmm... just noticed that Leonard Nimoy and James Doohan's son Christopher both make an appearance in the new film. Very cool. No sign of any appearances by or tributes to the rest of the original crew yet, including The Great and Mighty Shatner hisself. I wonder if that was his decision or the producers'...

Oohhhh, Ohhhh, I can't wait. It looks fabu. Thanks for sharing, I have been out of the loop too. Call me hopelessly old-fashioned, but I have always preferred the original Star Trek.

Cool! I love Star Trek and am not ashamed to admit I have all of the movies. :-D Can't wait to see this one.
