Romulan talks Trek 11

08.15.2008

CLIFTON COLLINS JR. Vastly under-appreciated character actor Clifton Collins Jr. recently spoke to E! Online about his role in the J.J. Abrams directed prequel reboot STAR TREK and while he didn't spill any major scoopage - young Kirk banged Spock's mother and is really Spock's father! - he did mention a few interesting tidbits. First off, since he and fellow baddie Eric Bana are Romulans, the filmmakers hired a linguist to flesh out the Romulan language (it's apparently never been done) for Collins and Bana to learn. Secondly, when describing their characters, he had this to say: "We’re space pirates. Think of Johnny Depp as a Romulan.” Holy crap, space pirates! The only thing better would be if they were space pirate ninjas! Though he didn't say they aren't space pirate ninjas so there's hope! Finally, we may be seeing some big star cameos, though Collins wouldn't mention who or how. Can you say William Shatner? Read about it over HERE. The Enterprise launches once again May 8th of next year.

The Trekkie in me says...

There shouldn't be Romulans at this period of the timeline... Unless they plan on keeping them hidden from Kirk and co.

Should be good

I've always liked Collins's roles and my favorite would be from The Last Castle.

Depp-esque Pirates?

Is Mr. Collins trying to insinuate that the Romulans in this new Trek flick will be dressed up as effeminate pirates? Will they be from Uranus instead of Romulus?

Eh, I'm all for Romulans in the storyline and if ya want to make them pirates or rogues or whatever, that's cool I guess. But the Johnny depp reference is making me nervous all of a sudden.

Forget the Romulan Language

I'd like to find out about the important Star Trek stuff like:

Will the new Kirk use the Bill Shatner acting method? Will he wear a toupee and get fatter in every sequel?

Will there be a green piece of ass alien girl?

Will Mr. Sulu be constantly saying, "Oh My"? Will he redecorate the bridge?

Will Bones say, "Dammit Jim" throughout the movie?

Will Scotty be drunk for most of the film?

Will Uhura still look like she is working in a call center?

Come on, let's get the
