Star Trek - First Look at The U.S.S. Enterprise and Its Crew

Star Trek may not be hitting theaters until May 2009 but the film’s marketing campaign has hit high gear this month. It might be because the movie’s director is J.J. Abrams, who not only writes, directs, and produces, but is also a genius at promoting both movies and television shows (see Cloverfield and Lost). Surprisingly, these photos have finally gotten The Blot excited about this Star Trek reboot/prequel.

Here is your official first look at the newly remodeled Starship Enterprise. Abrams stayed true to the look of Starship NCC-1701 but gave the classic spaceship a facelift and a more modern look. I think the changes are nice, yet subtle. I’m especially glad Abrams decided to keep the Enterprise’s unique shape.

I think the crew of the Starship Enterprise has come together quite nicely as well. In the photo below you can see almost all of the actors that make up the ship’s commanding officers and essential crew including Anton Yelchin as Chekov, Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Karl Urban as Dr. McCoy, John Cho as Sulu and Zoe Saldana as Uhura.

The only central crew member not in the photo above is Zachary Quinto’s Spock. But thankfully the photograph below is a great action photo of the Enterprise's bridge, which features Quinto in all his pointy eared glory.
