Star Trek XI announced

Ironically I found this out while reading an article on a wrestling site. Apparently the new movie will be directed and produced by J.J. Abrams, a guy famous for Lost, Alias and Mission Impossible: III and is scheduled for a 2008 release. In a risky move the story will apparently focus on Kirk and Spock’s first meeting at the accademy during the early days of the Federation. How they do that with William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy as old as they are is a beyond me, unless they use new actors which is an immensely bad idea. Oh and they’re apparently not involving Rick Berman in the project at all… Info on Star Trek, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, science fiction, sci-fi, TV
