OMG… right on the tail of yesterday’s news about Matt and Leo being in the same movie, today I heard even more exciting news… talk about mixing favourites… MATT DAMON as James T Kirk in Star Trek XI (2008).
Personally I think it should be called Star Trek 0.5 as it’s going to be a prequel and centre around Star Fleet Acadamy.
There has been some comments going round that this may end up being Felicity (also a J.J. Abrams invention) in space. But with the Alias writers on-board I think it is going to be so much more.
I have to be honest and say that most of the Star Trek movies have been pretty lacklustre. I’m certain the problem has been studio interference and budgets too low to do what they need to do. If you went cold on Star Trek and never got to check it out, I suggest you try Star Trek: Voyager it’s helmed by a captain who knows how to kick ass.
Who knows, maybe this movie will introduce new characters who can spin-off into a new TV series or a new series of movies. One thing’s for sure… the world can always do with more Star Trek… bring it on.
