Kirk is Back

Four decades after NBC axed the original series, the unstoppable Star Trek franchise was back again last night — with a feature premiere in Australia and a surprise preview in Austin.

And with a new Captain Kirk. 28-year-old Chris Pine takes the helm as Young Kirk, succeeding the super-legendary William Shatner. The film (titled simply Star Trek) opens in the U.S. on May 8th.

Early reviews seem mighty good.
