    Thanks to PTM at Trek Movie Report, we've got confirmation of what I'd been hoping for since this project was announced: McCoy is in the movie! :thumbsup:

    No matter what happens now, I'm a happy camper. Orci clearly gets what made TOS so great.

    He also said alot of good stuff about the design in the film about how it might be "more faithful then you might expect", and then there was the remark about The Enterprise which gave me goose bumbs! :D

    :drool: :) Can't wait for Dec. 2008!

    I feel this film could be the greatest event of next year! Some of the things he spoke of brought tears to my eyes! I too got those goosebumps when he mentioned the Enterprise!

    Was there doubt that McCoy would be in?

    Dam right McCoy should be in it. After all he's my favorite character from TOS. Without the McCoy character, the film will have no heart.

    excellent. McCoy is the anchor.

    I continue to feel hopeful about this project.

    Now if the director is as on-target as the writers seem to be...

    Honestly, at this point I would have been extremely surprised if McCoy wasn't a part of the movie, pivotal or otherwise.

    Me too, but it's nice to have confirmation all the same, particularly since Orci makes all the right noises concerning the Kirk-Spock-McCoy triumverate.

    I like the sound of this, but I can't help but feel sadness when I stop to consider that the original actor won't appear in the film.

    He is truly missed. A class act.
