Empire's Star Trek Cover Has Arrived
Empire's Star Trek Cover Has Arrived
Prepare to fold-out into darkness!

empire jj abrams issue star trek into darkness fold out cover

The front cover of Empire's May issue is boldly going where very few covers have gone before. In publishing's answer to the Genesis Project, it has expanded across three whole pages of cover to accommodate Star Trek Into Darkness's full complement in a gatefold that lays out the full majesty of J.J. Abrams' world.

From Chris Pine's Captain Kirk to Zachary Quinto's Spock, and newbies Alice Eve (Carol Marcus) and the mysterious and most likely fairly evil John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch). No wonder Kirk looks miffed. Abrams has (a) stolen his chair, and (b) failed to turn up in appropriate Starfleet attire.


As those cover lines reveal, the edition is jammed with Abrams-related goodies. There's new Star Wars gems within, a comprehensive oral history of Lost and we've spoken to everyone in the JJverse. Brace yourself for something truly special.

Empire's J.J. Abrams' special issue hits newsagent shelves on March 28. Then again, if you subscribe here, you won't even have to go outside. Then again again, if you have an iPad subscription, you won't even have to go to the door. Not that we're lazy or anything.

RE: Costumed
To HighwayJoe's complaint about the miniskirt uniform, clearly you haven't been paying much attention if you think they were done away with after TOS. In Star Trek 5 and 6, we saw a skirt option used by Uhura and a couple of other female officers. A similar uniform was commonly seen in the first season of TNG (heck, they even showed a few MEN wearing it!). In case, it's a lot more professional-looking than the uber-cleavage bunny suit Troi often wore, or the skin-tight outfits worn by Seven More

Costumed
The only thing I don't like about this remake is the return of that ridiculous dress uniform for the women. Star Trek TOS did away with it in the movies, and now it just looks utterly outdated and, quite frankly, silly. The women cast in this movie are athletic and tough. To put them in a costume like that borders on belittling. Star Trek is meant to be set in the 23rd century--do we really believe that after the women's rights movement of the 60s and 70s and everything that's happened since, St More

Oh dear
What an awful, awful, looking cover. It appears to have taken around the whole 5 minute mark with PhotoShop. The nice STID background coupled with 'random' cut outs of the cast doesn't do it for me. Especially obvious overlay. Come on Empire....you could at leave have put a little spark into it! I wouldn't have minded if this was a feature..............but as a cover to buy the magazine......erm, no. More
