New Trek Photos Actually Generate Some Excitement

A whole bunch of Star Trek news hit the web over the last couple of days, culminating in a huge dispersal of publicity material in the form of cool-looking photos. Trekkies all over the world are about to go nuts.

First, Entertainment Weekly will be feature Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) on their next cover:

This hot on the heels of the announcement that the new trailer will be attached to showings of the new Bond flick Quantum of Solace, opening Nov. 14th.

Next came a whole slew of photos:

Here's the crew, from left to right: Chekov (anton Yelchin), Kirk (Chris Pine), Scotty (Simon Pegg), McCoy (Karl Urban), Sulu (John Cho) and Uhura (Zoe Saldana)

This is reportedly the bridge of the Enterprise.

So, what do you think? Personally, I love the whole kicky retro feel of the pics. I'm totally looking forward to how director JJ Abrams pulls this off. The cast all look perfectly suited to their roles, and the tone seems right. However, that bridge set looks a little cluttered. Still, is that a miniskirt I see? Awesome.
