Few films have been so keenly awaited or the subject of so much internet debate as the twelfth Star Trek movie -- the first since 2002 -- which is scheduled to be released in May 2009. Directed by J.J. Abrams, creator of cutting-edge cult television shows Lost and Alias, the film is expected to launch the Star Trek franchise into a new stellar era. Going back to the very beginnings of the classic Star Trek, the film tells how James T. Kirk, the half-Vulcan Spock, Dr McCoy, engineer Montgomery Scott and crew members Chekov, Sulu and Uhura first came together as rookie Starfleet recruits, and how they embraced the destiny that would later send them out across the galaxy accompanied by the immortal words: 'These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise...' A largely brand new cast including Chris Pine as Kirk, Zachary Quinto (Heroes) as Spock, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Karl Urban as McCoy alongside Eric Bana, Winona Ryder and Leonard Nimoy will bring Star Trek to a whole new audience, while at the same time Alan Dean Foster's novelization will enthrall both existing fans and a new generation of readers.

*3.5-4 Stars**The Gush* I'm admittedly not a huge fan of Alan Dean Foster, particularly where media tie-ins are concerned. *cough Star Wars cough*. However, this was a wonderful fleshed out look at the movie. Why has it become necessary to read novelizations of movies simply to answer glaring questi...
Why yes, it is still my pleasure to read Star Trek novels. Sorry, ladies, I'm already taken.Foster has always been a more-than-serviceable translator of Star Trek to novel. What I enjoyed about this movie and novel was the story frame, which asserts the inevitability of the Star Trek TOS timeline. G...
Full of subtle but great impact differences from the movie the book is a wonderful read. The differences give more to certain aspects that, time constraints forced the movie to leave out or that can not be seen.
