Wondering why there has yet to be a thread for this. Are we not Geeks here? A little about the film taken form Wikipedia: Plot After being called back home, the crew of the Enterprise find a seemingly unstoppable force which has attacked Starfleet and left Earth in chaos. Captain Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise are tasked with leading the deadly manhunt to capture the party responsible and settle an old score. Cast Chris Pine as Captain James T. Kirk, commanding officer of the Starship Enterprise. Pine said stepping into William Shatner's shoes was more daunting than when he agreed to take over the role of Jack Ryan in a reboot of the Tom Clancy film series.Zachary Quinto as Commander Spock, executive and science officer. Benedict Cumberbatch as John Harrison. Co-star Karl Urban had stated that Cumberbatch would be playing Gary Mitchell, a character from the original series episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before", but that is unconfirmed by the production team. Karl Urban as Lieutenant Commander Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy, chief medical officer Alice Eve as Dr. Carol Marcus Zoe Saldana as Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, communications officer. Anton Yelchin as Ensign Pavel Chekov, navigator. John Cho as Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu, helmsman. Simon Pegg as Lieutenant Commander Montgomery "Scotty" Scott, second officer and chief engineer. Bruce Greenwood as Rear Admiral Christopher Pike Noel Clarke, as an unknown role, but shown to be the father of a terminally ill child in the IMAX preview. I'm most excited to see Cumberbatch having enjoyed his Sherlock performance for years. Also excited to see what role Noel Clarke plays. He was pretty good in Doctor Who and I miss seeing him around. *Sigh* There is so much excitement for me with this film and it is a very, Very difficult wait. I am curious about which of TBBT fans are also a fan of Star Trek and are (or are not) looking forward to this film.
Have Tom Hardy as a guest appearance. Don't laugh at me the guy is great. Plus, he'd probably do it if he can fit it into his schedule. He is in high demand right now. But, he is laid back and can play peculiar. Plus, it would be epic entertainment to see Jim Parsons and Tom Hardy on screen together. What's more, is there's so many ways you can write this into the show. After all, Hardy has done Bane and Star Trek Nemesis.
Has anyone heard about this? And how did I NOT hear about this? Apparently Wyoming has a Name-A-Tribble contest ! I was thinking of 'Gene; after Gene Roddenberry, or Sheldon. Thoughts? But then I thought of the perfect name,which I am about to send in......MOONPIE! Here;s the article: CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Anybody who doesn’t think this is the cutest little news story of the day must be a Klingon. The American Heritage Center at the University of Wyoming is holding a ‘‘Name the Tribble’’ contest. The idea is to promote American Archives Month and show people that archives aren’t just repositories of musty old documents — they can be home to cool stuff, too. Such as a tribble, a small creature from the Star Trek television series. The American Heritage Center houses items donated by several celebrities including the late Forrest J. Ackerman, a science fiction publisher credited with inventing the term ‘‘sci-fi.’’ Ackerman had no ties to Wyoming but years ago donated many boxes of manuscripts, photographs, movie stills, correspondence, books, movie posters and artifacts including a tribble from the Star Trek set. ‘‘A tribble is a little furball-type thing. It looks like a hairy softball that is very soft and cushy,’’ said Lander journalist Ernie Over, who was Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s personal assistant from 1985 to 1990. Tribbles have no arms, legs, heads or even eyes. The idea was to mass-produce them as simply as possible, Over said. In the famous 1967 Star Trek episode that first featured tribbles, the prolific creatures multiplied and overran the Enterprise until Montgomery ‘‘Scotty’’ Scott beamed them onto a Klingon ship. Ha-ha: Klingons despise tribbles. And tribbles hiss when they encounter Star Trek’s best-known bad guys. Tribbles are sought-after Star Trek souvenirs nowadays. Archivist and Trekkie Keith Reynolds said he couldn’t resist running around with the furball when he found it in the Ackerman collection. ‘‘The people who had no idea what it was, they were completely grossed out. They thought it was a toupee,’’ he said. ‘‘Or some dead animal.’’ He said the tribble isn’t much to look at, just a tuft of fake fur. A good tribble name should sum up ‘‘tribble-esque qualities,’’ said his co-worker, Rachael Dreyer, organizer of the naming contest. Entries can be emailed to ahc(at)uwyo.edu, with ‘‘Tribble Contest’’ and your name in the subject line. They also can be posted at the center’s Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/UWAHC The deadline for entries is Oct. 22.
