OHMIGOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Contains no spoilers, just poster pics)

We have pictures. Real pictures from the official people. There's a website you can go to, (, but for now let me just say... wow. Oh, heck. I'll just post the thing.

This is the first image of Pine as Kirk. I was worried, and seeing this I kind of still am. I don't feel like he's captured the essence of William Shatner - basically, he's not looking like a big joke. At least the KirkWorshippers will be satisfied.

Zach looks amazing, totally believable to me. He really has Spock's intensity down. A+.

While I feel bad for Karl Urban, I love that the first poster shows Kirk, Spock, and Uhura. Zoe doesn't look much like Nichelle to me, but I guess Leonard and Zach make up for that. Maybe if we could see her hair?

Eric Bana makes one creepy villain, especially if you tattoo his scalp. I guess now we know why he's shaved his head. Not at all DorkyHulk.

Now go back and look in their eyes. Brilliant.

The best part? If you put the posters together, you get...

And suddenly Chris looks a lot more Kirklike to me when you zoom out. Weird.


There's a lot of stuff I'll put up with, but the Enterprise ep "Precious Cargo" is just ridiculous. Okay, I'm in the middle of it right now, so I can't really comment, but it starts with Trip playing a harmonica. A freaking harmonica. I don't like harmonicas. Never have - except the plastic ones from when I was five.

Side note: What is it with Kriosians and stasis?
