Don't forget Eric Bana as a badass Romulan named Nero.

Honestly, if there was only one truly irreplacable original actor from that series, I'd say it was DeForrest Kelly.

Really? You don't think Spock in the hands of someone else wouldn't have been completely ridiculous?

I'm far from an authority (or fan) of the OS, but it seemed to me he was (ironically) the heart of the thing.

It's a combination of the two; if the dynamic between Kirk-Spock-Bones didn't work, the show would be a pissfest.

I've only seen Chris Pine in Smokin' Aces, and he was one of the only somewhat impressive things in that movie.

Nimoy's Spock is friggen classic. I just can't imagine Bones being anyone else. He was always my favorite character in the OS.

Scotty was probably my 3rd fave behind Spock and Kirk. I will never forget meeting him when I went to an actual convention.

Well I was about 11, so I have somewhat of an excuse.

One of the best SNL sketches ever.

As a Star Trek fan, I'm very upset that J.J. Abrams have been given so much leeway. He's a hack. Alias was awful and painful and formulaic and poorly cast with Jennifer Garner. "Lost"'s main quality comes from the hard work of Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindeloff, and even that has severe commercial moments designed to be conveniently light-hearted, though I enjoy it. M:I 3 was just Alias on film, but better. I just don't understand his appeal. He's such an uninteresting person interested in cheap gimmicks and shock value, not real character development. I despise the way corporate people embrace his cheap TV/film-making. Even one of the writers for "Band of Brothers" Eric Jenderson spent a year writing a script for a new film that would have been original, but corporate changes at Paramount meant they gave it to the undeserved Abrams.

Ira Steven Behr should get the respect he deserves for making Star Trek Deep Space Nine's best years; it's really the only great Trek, and really speaks to so many of the problems of our world in terms of terrorism, occupation, religion, nationalism, insecurity prompting aggression on the international stage, etc.

But no one at Paramount recognizes artistic achievement.

They'd rather rely on nostalgia and J.J. is happy to do that. This whole thing stinks of self-conscious commercial appeal. It'll be fun and probably better than those awful TNG movies and the franchise under Berman/Braga, but it won't be anything truly insightful about the human condition; just a lot of action and cliches. Whatever they call it, it's not Star Trek to me. Then again, I haven't been a fan of the original series since before my teens and I've been uninterested in most of TNG since I was 16. So, I'm just glad DS9 had it's run without creative interference from Paramount -- only from Rick Berman.

By the way, Behr works on The 4400 and Ron Moore created and heads Battlestar Galactica; both shows have just extended on DS9's more realistic themes and far surpass Star Trek under Roddenberry.

I still love "The Motion Picture", though. Very underrated.
