Star Trek recast: new Kirk, Spock, et alia

Here is an article. about the 2009 movie.

11 photos from the movie--see the new cast of characters.

To me, the long and the short of it will be the writing. Is it good science fiction? Are the characters well-written?

If it wouldn't make a good novel, it won't be a good movie, either. Special effects and good acting can't make up for a poor plot or poor characterization.

Nimoy's reaction when he learned that Quinto had taken over his role sums it up best: ''You're screwed.''

They should not try and emulate "The Origianl". There are plenty of Trek spin offs to create a new story without having to create a whole new cast of established characters. Trekkers will compare, and will not be happy if the new Kirk, Spock, Scottie, Bones, Uhura, et al. don't look, act, or sound like the originals. The piccie of "Spock" is downright frightful!

The guy playing Spock is the villain from "Heroes."

So I'm nervous from the get-go!

I remember when Star Trek was on in first run. So I will be biased out of the gate. The new cast will have to be stellar to sell me on their performances.

And the new costumes?
