Star Trek moves along space-time continuum

All you space geeks out there have been given a few more months to get your Starfleet Academy uniforms pressed, Vulcan ears reshaped, and tribbles fluffed.

Paramount Studios has delayed the release date of the feature film Star Trek from Christmas of this year to May 8, 2009, according to Variety. If the studio is to be believed, the move was purely financial. Paramount believes the flick will perform better as a summer blockbuster rather than a holiday diversion.

The movie is being entrusted to producer extraordinaire J.J. Abrams (Cloverfield, Lost, Alias), who will direct. An adaptation of the original series of the venerable science-fiction franchise, Star Trek follows Captain Kirk through his younger days as a Starfleet Academy greenhorn.

The cast includes Chris Pine as Kirk, Heroes' Zachary Quinto as Spock, Simon Pegg as Scotty, and John Cho as Sulu. For more on the movie, including the recently released teaser trailer, head over to MovieTome.

    Voyager 74656 - keep the faith, the fire still burns white hot!

    I'll wait, since what else can I do. But I'll try not to build my expectations - that only leads to disappointment! Enterprise had really gotten good the last season (except for the cheat on the finale - who's idea was it to have the final scene with TNG people!!), I wish the SciFi Channel had picked it up. I even told them that there wouldn't be a SciFi channel if it weren't for Star Trek!

    Would have rather had a follow up movie for the voyager/ds9 follow up or even another next gen movie. I mean when voyager got back the federation could've figured out the slipstream thing and decided to check out the rest of the delta quadrent or some other territory. Or one of the other races with transwarp could've set their sites on the alpha quadrent. Or maybe something involving that 30th century federation.

    I"D love to see this film, but my favourite really was Star Trek Voyager. when will they make a film of it? maybe just one.. Please?....

    I'd love to see another Star Trek series again. But this time have it set a hundred years AFTER the era in which DS9 and Voyager existed.

    JJ makes decent tv shows, but as movies, he flops, we already have several good original movies, what is the point of the re-boot?

    So they pushed the film back. So that means the bootlegs will be out in full force by the time the film finally comes out.

    Nice move Paramount.

    im sick of captain kirk and the first generation!... once and again, again and again...all the vast universe and it always the same... always showing the same history... nothing least it wont be a movie of picard...

    also i think that Cloverfield isn't a fine example of success to relay our trust in the producers.... even if the sells increse the franchise will lost the chance of wins new fans with a bad movie.... with this kind of originality i dindt see a close reborn of SS, and i see too farr away the possibility of a new tv show about the saga....
