The first teaser trailer for the 11th instalment of the Star Trek franchise hit all the right notes, but we've since had to contend with news that J.J. Abrams' rebirth has been pushed back until May 2009.

Perhaps hoping to ease concern among the millions of Trekkies out there, Paramount Pictures has today let loose a selection of images that provide a closer look at the new-look Enterprise crew.

Unfortunately, the images have been scattered around the universe internet so we've done a little trekking to put them all in one place.

UGO provides a first look at the new crew. From left to right: Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov, Chris Pine as James Kirk, Simon Pegg as Montgomery Scott, Karl Urban as Leonard McCoy, John Cho as Hikaru Sulu and Zoe Saldana as Nyota Uhura.

MTV provides a look at the Enterprise's first bridge:

JoBlo has an image of Romulan bad guy Nero, played by Eric Bana:

TrekMovie shows the U.S.S. Kelvin under attack:

IGN has James Kirk in an awkward position:

Last but not least, Ain't It Cool News provides a shot of Zachary Quinto as Spock, performing a Vulcan Death Grip no less:

Early impressions are positive, we love the look of the Bridge and the uniforms are spot on. Time to put this one on our must-see list of 2009.

Is it me or does the guy in the captain's chair (the new Kirk I presume) look a lot like Hayden Christensen…?

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

(sorry, couldn't resist!)
why does this bridge look so much more modern that all the other bridges I have seen on any Star Trek?
Jay, my guess would be that it's just due to what they can do now. The effects will be a lot easier to do in the new series of Star Trek films, and with a new crew, they may as well update a few things.

It might not fit in exactly with the other movies, but I don't mind some spruced-up gadgets. The first warp flight, according to the story, is said to have happened on April 5th, 2063. The first enterprise must have been built a few years after that so a 2070 ship should be kitted out with at least an Intel Core i128 and Windows 60. :)
The crew shots make it look like a spoof teen movie… fingers crossed they'll be decent in it.
