Chris Pine, Zack Pinto, and J. J.
At a film industry event over the weekend the surprise guest was none other than J. J. ABRAMS. He often visits ILM for effects, and joined his STAR TREK actors to plug the movie. In the trailer to be released Friday along with WATCHMEN, we learn that Kirk's father was briefly in command of a starship.
I asked Chris Pine (Kirk) if he had any favourite episodes of Classic Trek. He was fond of "The Enemy Within" and "Shore Leave." Zachary Pinto (Spock) did not need to see any old episodes, because he had Leonard Nimoy on set advising him. The original STAR TREK has lasted so long because Roddenberry sought the technical advice of NASA and the aerospace industry. In turn many in space today were inspired by the show. We can hope that the movie is good.
