Following the previous set of posters from the new Star Trek film, we now have a glimpse at the rest of the re-cast Enterprise crew. In this set we finally get a look at Simon Pegg as Scotty, as well as Karl Urban as Bones.

What do you think?

Am I going nuts or does Karl Urban look more like Captain Jack from Torchwood?

I think Quinto will be brilliant as Spock. Not so confident about the others though, especially Pine, who says his performance was inspired by Han Solo.

The guy on the bottom right looks like Dr. Bashir from Deep Space Nine to me...

Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana. All perfect casting choices, but none of them I'm more pleased with than

Chris Pine. The man has the 'cunning hero' presence of Shatner if nothing else, and fits well with the rest of the 'look' of the cast. People can complain all they want, I think Pine will make the movie if nothing else does.
