I love how the article's "sources" are referred to by their job description and not their name. I also love the make-up artist's bone-head comment.

Also, psst article author...it was a male "crew" member, not "cast" member, that made the CGI comment.

Rick Berman is to blame for this. I just know it.

Yet another slow news day here at TrekNation...

In further headlines, Brent Spiner has an ingrown toenail, and Scott Bakula forgot to brush his teeth before heading out today. Film at 11.

Yeah, it was (and has been recently) a slow news day. Yet news must be posted. That's the way it goes. ;)

Ouch! Poor Mr. Nimoy. I'm glad it wasn't bad enough that they had to use a double. I'm also feeling very guilty for laughing at the "You know the sets are so dark and he's an old guy" quote!

Well, at least they haven't resorted to posting fan film news as though it were real news.

Oh, uh... never mind.

This just in
Bruce Greenwood stubs his toe in his bathroom.

This will have major consequences on filming

Pike will now walk with a limp the entire movie forcing Bruce to not partake in a stunt

J.J is rewriting to have Shatner fill in

To compensate for his injured foot, Greenwood will tap his other foot once for 'yes,' twice for 'no.'

I love how we can't get a picture of him in costume, yet this little tidbit manages to escape the sound stage. :vulcan:
