New STAR TREK Sneaks Into Texas

The crew of the new STAR TREK have been making surprise appearances, which allowed us to see J. J Abrams and the cast in February, Chris Pine, Zack Pinto, and J. J. Monday night at Austin's theatre was advertised as a free screening of STAR TREK: THE WRATH OF KHAN, "One of the best pictures ever made." The line producer and writers of the new film would then answer questions and show 10 minutes of new footage. About 200 movie fans showed up Monday, the few who cared to talk to the writers.

KHAN had barely started when the film "broke." Producer Damon Lindelof and writers Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman pretended to fend for themselves. "Stall for time!, someone yelled. Suddenly they were joined onstage by none other than LEONARD NIMOY! Classic Spock brought along a copy of the new movie, which he showed in its entirety. None in the crowd complained about missing KHAN, for the new movie compares very well.

Nimoy, Lindelof, Orci and Kurtzman stayed past the closing credits. Fans in Texas saw the new TREK 6 hours before its official world premiere in Sydney. We enjoyed the movie, hope it does very well and leads to more. Maybe next time they will seek NASA's technical help, so the Enterprise will not be built on the ground.
