See my thread in Empire Online on the forum.

You clearly love the Trek!

BUT, I hate all the promo Spock images. They look like shots of make-up experiments with the ears, eyebrows and wig.

That said, can't wait for this...

And that's Michael Amador from Season 3 of 24 next to Kirk! The old swine, he gets everywhere.

Yep, Empire has only been a week late in showing photos from the new Star Trek film. I guess the Empire editorial team pissed off Paramount in the past (or vice versa)!

I am disappointed that J.J. Abrams have kept the 60's "cartoony" uniforms - it reminds me of Thunderbirds and Speed Racer films (both box-office flops). Hopefully, an awesome trailer will appeal to Non-Trekkers to turn up and watch the film.

in the other forum post about the promo pics I slated the make up look of Zachary Quinto as Spock...but seeing these images kinda makes me realise that the film will certainly be damn good...Spock is looking good but seriously shame about the uniforms...

This is supposed to be a story about the familiar characters' past... if you don't want the "cartoony" uniforms, if you want want the classic ship -- all of which went into making Star Trek what it was -- why are you even making (directed to the producers) or thinking about watching (directed to the "fans" who apparently don't actually like ANYTHING about the original Star Trek) this movie?

Other than pure jaded, cynical greed and cold indifference to anything other than their bank balances, what would prompt these people to resurrect something loved by millions and then F*** AROUND with it like this?

Yeah, I can see it now:

"Star Trek? Hey, what's that? I've never heard of that all my life! I have no opinion about it whatsoever! Oh? What's that? It's going for flash and bang over intellectualism now? You say it'll have a woman with gigantic breasts in a skintight catsuit, and lots of spaceships covered in neon frippery? Appeals to the lowest common denominator, you say? Well, why didn't you say so?! THAT'S worth seeing!"

I should point out that I'm a BIG Star Trek fan (being a geek man) but all my female friends HATE Star Trek (which is why I think they should of toned down the "cartoony" 60's uniforms). I personally preferred the uniforms from the 1st "Motion Picture" film. They should of done "Batman Begins" and "Casino Royale" i.e. re-boot from scratch.

The Original Series has been something every single series that followed it has gone back and put a touchstone "homage" episode in line with whenever it needed a ratings boost. The Next Generation did it with "Relics" by having Scotty on the show and letting him wander a (partial) TOS Enterprise bridge. DS9 did it with "Trials & Tribble-ations (horrible title, great episode.) Voyager did it (sort of) with "Flashback", where we saw Captain Sulu circa TOS movie era. Enterprise did it (sort of) with "In A Mirror, Darkly", featuring a different ship but the same '60s "look."

These were near or at the top of those series MOST POPULAR episodes. Why? Because despite the "let's get the bobble-headed bleacher warmers in front of Star Trek" idiocy bought into by Berman & Braga, who nearly killed the franchise, and now by J.J. Abrams and Co. who are about to deliver the coup de grace, a lot more people actually LIKE the original series -- COMPLETE with its original look -- than want it raised from the dead and gang-raped by retarded "fashionistas."

The original series, AND its original "cartoony" look have lasted long enough that they're no longer "outdated" -- they're CLASSIC. Like the 1965 1/2 design of the Ford Mustang. Yes, you can update the basic design -- note the 2005+ Mustang -- but if you go slapping an ENTIRELY different look in its place, you deserve what you get, which will be one pissed off studio, millions of pissed off fans and very likely a franchise that's dead for good.

If you don't want the original look, you don't want Star Trek. Go watch something else and leave it alone. I would love to see another Star Trek film. This won't be one. It's just a cruel joke.

in search of some charisma, hopefully. Chris Pine's presence in these images is schoolboyishly flaccid.

Quinto looks terrible on a cover, but actually quite something on the still, but that may be exacerbated by the composition of the shot. Ever since Usual Suspects though, Singer's gone downhill - his directorial attempt at House's pilot was abysmal, saved only by the writing and casting of the show.
