What do you think of Zachary Quinto as Spock, in full costume including ears? I reckon he looks perfect for the part. Simon Pegg is perfect for Scotty, but I dunno about the other casting. I've read the casting sheet for the characters, and every one of them is described as a "sassy, danger-loving wild child" -- what the hell is this, The OC in Space?! Karl Urban is wrong for McCoy (he played Eomer in the Lord of the Rings). But I'll reserve judgement until I see it.

Harlan Ellison is pretty pissed off too, and I don't blame him. Writers are treated like whores by Hollywood, and I'm glad he's standing up for himself. I wonder if young Kirk will be assassinated early in the film, and Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood) returns to captain the Enterprise?

Don't let them suck on this one! It's sad how Viacom has denigrated this wonderful fantasy universe again and again.

I heard Winona Ryder is gonna be part of the movie. What's she gonna be?

Spock's Dad is human? I don't know why they felt the need to change that part of the story.

I think the story has always been that Spock's dad is vulcan, and his mom's from Earth. That was a big problem for him, for he always tried to reject his human part, but sometimes with little success.

There's an episode from Star Trek: Next Gen, where Patrick Stewart was brilliant, In it Sarek (Spock's father) is aboard the Enterprise and it's discovered that he suffers from a rare vulcan illness simmilar to human Alzheimer, where the person loses the capacity to control emotional outbursts, something catastrophic for any vulcan. So Piccard agrees to perform a mind-meld with Spock's dad in order to grant him the needed control to complete a very sensitive diplomatic mission; Piccard is shown struggling with the powerful vulcan emotions, especially the love Sarek has for his son, but has never had the chance to show due to their cultural restrictions. That episode deserves an A+ in my Trekkie book :-)

Also, I made a programming languages called "Sarek".

For a special computer architecture, which some colleagues and myself were inventing. It was a collective effort of a large group of 3 people.

And of course we were benefiting from the collective knowledge of thousands of years of human knowledge.

But it was my own little language, I made it all by myself :)

What was it for?

Or is that an illogical question? ;-)

There were no compilers available for this new type of computer, and re-targeting an existing language would have take a long time. So I made a primitive new language, in order to program the thing. The whole effort never made it to a real hardware implementation, sadly.
