Re: New 'Star Trek XI' Pictures!

This looks great - it's the sort of approach I've been hoping for.

Me too, I like everything but the bridge. I especially don't like those light bulbs running across the side of the wall behind Kirk...

Re: New 'Star Trek XI' Pictures!

They seem like reasonable lighting fixtures.

The colors of the set are reminiscent of TOS - very light grey/platinum with red accents. One thing they've notably done is to replace the 3:4 ratio "TV screens" above the perimeter stations with edge-to-edge flatscreen displays. Very nice.

I think they did a good job casting Kirk, Spock and McCoy, and maybe Scotty. That's important. The other lesser regulars seem Ok too.

The ship exteriors look very nice.

Not sure about the bridge. Cluttered and overdone is my first reaction. At least it's bright.

Pine's pose is very young Shatner-like! Cool!

Re: New 'Star Trek XI' Pictures!

I think Simon Pegg looks the best of them all.

Why in all of the Kirk photos is Chris only wearing black? I'm a little concerned about that. I hope we get to see him in Captain's gold. I don't think I would like him wearing black through the entire film.

Other than that, I think all of the photos are great! I can't wait to see this.

That's the undershirt. He's not wearing the over tunic.

You might notice his face is a bit banged up. I daresay that photo indicates something that happens shortly after a rescue (?) from the ice planet, as the other photo indicates.

Re: New 'Star Trek XI' Pictures!

Personally I'm finding Pine's Kirk very hot...Or just Pine in general. Uhura is actually pretty hot too I must say.

Re: New 'Star Trek XI' Pictures!

The pics are what they are. The appear to have done a decent job with makeup to get these guys to at least resemble the original cast.

Though, my question was never really one of looks but rather character traits, which cannot be determined from the pictures.

The pic of Nero has me somewhat perplexed. Since when are Romulans green? I thought perhaps it was just lighting, but nothing else in the pic seems to have that hue.

The more I see of Quinto in makeup the less I think he resembles Nimoy.

I bet they look awesome when the bridge goes to red alert.
