Star Trek XI: Portrait of the Officers as Young Men

There's another Star Trek movie on the way, and this one's a prequel that will fill in backstory on Kirk and Spock as younger men. The latest addition to the $1 billion+ franchise will be Star Trek XI, and will be helmed by ace director J.J. Abrams of Mission Impossible III fame.

The screenplay will be written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, neither of whom have written a Star Trek screenplay before. The burning question: Who will play Kirk and Spock? Expect to see the movie in theaters by November, 2008.

Question for Trekkie experts: How will the tech in this new movie be different from the original Star Trek series? Somewhere between Enterprise and Star Trek? Discuss.
