Upcoming Star Trek Details


Ever since I heard that JJ Abrams' new Star Trek movie would feature Leonard Nimoy as Spock but NOT William Shatner as Captain Kirk, I've been wondering how this could happen. Kirk and Spock are a team; how could one be featured without the other? That question was answered today.

Trekmovie.com tells us that the new film will actually be set AFTER the events of 2002's Star Trek: Nemesis, beginning with the elderly Spock returning from Romulan space and then moving backwards in time (presumably in a flashback) to the origins of the crew of the NCC-1701. Continuity fans, rejoice. Be sure to check out the Star Trek coverage on The Solar Sentinel and Ben's Movie Reviews.

I've recently learned that a Vulcan lifespan can reach 250 years old, so Spock's appearance this is absolutely possible and believable...
