That sounds great. Looking forward to finding out why Simon Pegg was chosen.
You mean besides being a good actor, vaguely resembling James Doohan circa 1966, being absolutely hysterical, having a built-in fanbase from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, and generally being awesome?

^Plus the fact that Pegg and Abrams had a prior working relationship from Mission: Impossible III.
Oh, he was also in a little known show called Spaced which came well before Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, but I was just commenting as I personally associate him with very dark humour and I'd guess that people who go and see Star Trek will consider Scotty a comedy character as thats what Pegg is known for. Plus in October 2007 when it was announced, it for me came a little unexpected so it would be nice to read why he was choosen for the role.
