Jul 18 2008'Star Trek' ComicCon Posters Work Like the Backs of Collectable Movie Trading Cards

star-trek-comic-con-poster.jpg

As part of a Comic-Con preview, Entertainment Weekly has a look at the set of four Star Trek posters being handed out at the San Diego convention. Con attendees will each only get one of the posters apiece, meaning fans will be forced to literally murder each other if they hope to complete the logo. I guess that's one way to control the Trekker population.

thank you for using Trekker

Amazing shots and love the uniforms and colours
The Swinging sixties are back
Seems to be catering to the core Trek fans or back to the Classic Trekkies
We have an article on the original episodes on our retro site.

Any fans want to leave there memories on the the original episodes would love to hear from you.

is that Thandi Newton??? if so...niceee

James T. Kirk looks more like Christopher Pike. And Darth Maul looks like The Transporter. Transporter...? Hey what's going on here??

even better, Zoe Saldana

What, no love for John Cho or Simon Pegg?

I would be upset if I got stuck with the Fred Durst poster.

What the frack is with Dark Maul being in this image? Is Kirk going to be sporting a lightsaber now?

So, I'm not a hardcore Trek fan but the only character I can recognize is Spock. I assume yellow guy is Kirk but what about the other two?

Spock is spot on, great job there. Nero looks nothing like the Roman emperor, which is a good thing. Uhura's alright, not too off, although her figure seems more elongated than I ever remember Uhura's being. But Kirk, dear god, what have they done to him? Jaw structure is too triangular and tapered, and never did he look so ridiculously angsty. In short, I have even more reservations abotu this film than I did before.

I know, Amphetadex. It's almost as if they couldn't use circa-1966 William Shatner for this movie and had to find a different actor to portray the same character. Who would have guessed there aren't a bunch of people walking around who look exactly like the original Kirk?

YAY! More retreaded geek crap! YAAAAAY! Do you think they'll encounter a hostile alien civilization and have to put aside their own personal differences in order to come together to defeat the galactic menace? BOY, I SURE HOPE SO!!! YAAAAAAY!!! Now I have something new to convince myself I'm still eleven. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYY!!!

#9: "Uhura's alright, not too off, although her figure seems more elongated than I ever remember Uhura's being. But Kirk, dear god, what have they done to him? Jaw structure is too triangular and tapered, and never did he look so ridiculously angsty."

What the balls is wrong with you dorks? You really refuse to be happy until actors actually go under the knife to literally become the spitting image you swaddle into to keep your I'm-still-eleven buzz going. Fuck a new Shtar Trek movie.

Wow. Apparently tribal tattoos are trendy for the "bad boys" of the future too.

*sigh*

so nice film, it seemed appeared on http://multiraciallove.com . would you love to enjoy more details about it there, you may be surprised to enjoy more as you love to

Somebody get Karl Marl a Zoloft.

WELL? WHERE'S MY DAMNED ZOLOFT?

PS: Ergo Proxy makes Shtar Warzh look like Sliders. I swear I'll stop if you get me that Zoloft.
