Today's Morning Spoilers gives away a few minor, but possibly important, details from December's Star Trek movie. It also has new info on Land of the Lost, Smallville, Sarah Connor and Lost. Plus a few new pics from an upcoming Torchwood. It's time for maximum spoilage.

  • Because nobody demanded it, we're going to get to see James Kirk and his brother George as kids in the new Star Trek movie. Maybe we'll get some crucial insights into Jim's formative experiences and the childhood traumas that influenced him to be... waitaminute, this is Captain Kirk we're talking about. Anyway, the 11-year-old Jimmy Bennett will play kid Kirk, and 15-year-old Spencer Daniels will play George.
  • Also, apparently the brothers have a scene together without their parents. And we get to see Kirk's mom pregnant at some point (possibly with James?). This is more proof that the Trek movie will visit lots of different time periods. [TrekMovie]
  • Meanwhile, J.J. Abrams is already planning on two more Trek movies. [SyFyPortal]
  • Will Ferrell's Land Of The Lost movie includes actual time-travel instead of just a hole in the ground, according to a new synopsis: "Eccentric (and remarkably unlucky) paleontologist Dr. Rick Marshall validates his discredited theory of time travel by heading back into an alternate universe inhabited by dinosaurs, monkey people and reptilian Sleestaks."

  • Someone will die on Lost in the second half of this new mini-season. [TV Guide]
  • Here's the new official description for the Feb. 14 episode of Smallville: "Lois follows Lex to Detroit and discovers he has found Kara, who has amnesia. Finley (guest star Corey Sevier), a busboy who is obsessed with Kara, fears Lex will take her away, so he shoots Lex and holds Kara and Lois captive. After Lex's comatose body is found, Chloe offers to heal him, but Clark refuses to let her." [SpoilerFix]
  • We'll see more of Andy and his chess-playing computer in an upcoming Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, it seems. [SpoilerTV]
  • And here are a few new pics from the fourth episode of Torchwood season two. Apparently it's about an alien who's being used as a source of "cheap meat" (no, I'm not making this up) and Gwen's fiance Rhys gets involved as part of the Torchwood team. [SFUniverse]
