Star Trek Update

J.J. Abrams’ version of Starship Enterprise has finally been revealed, as have the first scenes of the acclaimed production. In his interview with, Abrams recalls his initial awe of the ship’s exterior while watching 1979’s Star Trek: The Motion Picture: “when you flew around the ship, you could see all the different panels that made up the ship…It was the first time I had ever seen that level of attention, that love of detail, given to the tangible, practical reality of the ship.”

Abrams promises an equal attention to ship’s detail. We, on the other hand, promise to latch onto anything he says, and print funny stories about nonsense like what the ship is going to look like. Why? Because we can’t wait to see the new Star Trek film.
