A New Star Trek Movie

Updated on February 14, 2018

A new Star Trek movie

"Space...the final frontier, these are the voyages of the starship Enterprise..." That's the way William Shatner began each TV episode of Star Trek. The original series ran in the mid 1960's and was not very successful. After the series was cancelled, the reruns started to be shown on local stations. Suddenly there was an explosion of fans and a cult following of Star Trek.

Now there is going to be a new Star Trek movie released using the same characters as the original TV series. Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty and all of the rest are etched in our minds. William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan and all of the other actors portrayed their characters in such a way that they became almost real. Kelley and Doohan have passed away and Shatner and Nimoy are in their 70's and 80's so it would not be possible to use the same actors for this movie.

That puts a lot of pressure on the new actors. The cast includes Kirk-Chris Pine; Spock-Zachary Quinto; McCoy-Karl Urban; Scotty-Simon Pegg; Uhura-Zoe Saldana and Sulu-Jon Cho. These actors should stay pretty close to the characters that were played in the TV series. If they stray from those roles, the Star Trek fans will be quite upset and the movie will flop. It will be tough enough because as I stated earlier, the characters are etched in our minds as portrayed by the original cast of the TV series.

One thing that may make the transition easier is that Leonard Nimoy is helping in the movie. I don't know if he will be on screen or not, but I understand that his voice will be heard at some time during the movie.

If this movie succeeds it will be very important that the cast remain intact. Unlike the Batman movies where there have been several different actors portraying Batman, they must maintain the same Kirk, Spock and McCoy until they are too old to play those parts.

I am looking forward to seeing how well this cast performs and closely they stay to the TV characters.
