Same here - you can't 'redo' Star Trek. It seems unholy.

what.. REDO? That's.. blasphemy. *shudder*

From what I've read it's not a re-do, it's a pre-do.

It's supposed to be what happens before the initial 5-year voyage. What got them all together.


Anyway, I wish they would just stop with the Star Trek for a few years. I really do love the franchise and all, but they really should take a look at the reason Enterprise got cancelled: poor writing, bad advertisement, oh yeah and saturation.

And Nemesis sucked.

1987 to 2005 is a sweet run for just about any genre. Unfortunately, Star Trek was overdone and super-recycled. Even I'll admit that.

Spock's gotta be getting on a bit by now...

Supposed to be a prequel. Wasn't interested at all until Zachary Quinto (Heroes' Sylar) got the Spock gig. Now I'll go just to make googly eyes at him.

Wynona Ryder as Spock's mom I don't care about.

The fact that she's Vulcan is the problem.

Spock is fucking half human!

Where does it say she's Vulcan in that article? Says she's playing the role Jane Wyman played and if there was ever a human white woman...

What picture, the one featured in the article? That's a normal head shot of her. It's a good recent one of her actually but where do you even see her ears, they're covered by her hair?

The one earlier showed her from the side - and she ahd the ears and the funky spock-like eyebrows. They've changed it since this morning. Just peeked over at startrek.com and they're saying that it's Variety that's announced she'll be Vulcan - which they trust is an error...

Paramount Pictures and director JJ Abrams have set Ryder to play the Vulcan mother of a young Spock (Zachary Quinto).


That's from Variety's site. Idiots.

I'm sure that's an error - there's no way they'd fuck up such a well known, established storyline.
