Boldly Going…Again: New Star Trek Movie Cast Finalized

Well, with the possible exception of Christopher Pike, the principle cast of the new JJ Abrams-helmed Star Trek film appears to be set. Your new crew is:

Chris Pine as Kirk

Karl Urban as McCoy

Anton Yelchin as Chekov

Simon Pegg as Scotty

Zachary Quinto as Spock

John Cho as Sulu

Zoë Saldana as Uhura


While I remain dubious of the whole endeavour, I’ll reserve judgment until I see the finished product.

There’s some talent amongst the new cast, that’s clear. Though I think only the new Spock, Uhura and Chekov look anything like the original actors (you have to admit–the guy playing Chekov already has the weird Monkees hairdo down…)

  1. I thinks it’s a good line-up, particulary Carl Urban, but then that’s more to do with Kiwi patriotism than anything else.
    Btw, what sort of fiction do you write. Have you got any on your blog? Just interested as a fellow writer.

  2. Hi Edwin –

    I write mainly SF with the occasional fantasy (though I’ve only had the SF published thus far).

    No fiction on my blog, but you can find it in print in the various anthologies whose covers appear in the right-hand border of the blog’s main page.

    Thanks for stopping by!
