Time to Trek

This weekend the Star Trek reboot happens. As you all know (or can probably tell from the trailer that has been burning up the Net, this is a major departure from the type of Trek film that we’ve seen in the past. The new film is directed by J.J. Abrams, the fellow who brought us Cloverfield, Alias, and Fringe.

This film promises to inject a load of action and drama into the franchise that has been sorely lacking for the past couple of films, and hopefully set up the next 35 or so years. Still, as can be expected, there is a small bit of controversy amongst the hard core elitist Trekkies.

If you haven’t already seen the following video, you are in for a treat. If you have seen it, watch it again, you’ll still be laughing.


Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film As 'Fun, Watchable'

Now that you have a proper perspective on the whole event, here are some of the toys you will find at Burger King relating to this wicked-cool flick:



There is a set of four glasses, which, historically speaking, hold their value better than the toys.



There are also 16 Trek figures that are going to be released three at a clip over tthe next four or so weeks.
