The big-time blockbuster of the summer of 2009 is now on Comcast On Demand – J.J. Abrams’ slam-bang revamping of the venerable Star Trek franchise, with Chris Pine stepping into the role of James T. Kirk and telling the story of how he got involved with Starfleet and formed his initially-adversarial relationship with the half-Vulcan Spock (Zachary Quinto). Eric Bana plays a vengeful Romulan whose nefarious schemes unite the familiar names of the U.S.S. Enterprise – McCoy (Karl Urban), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Sulu (John Cho), Chekov (Anton Yelchin) and Scotty (Simon Pegg) – under Captain Pike (Bruce Greenwood). But what does the appearance of the elder Spock (Leonard Nimoy) mean for the future of these young men and women? The answers will come in the form of many sequels.

And if you like that, you can go back through the massive history of the venerable Star Trek franchise by watching all ten of the original Star Trek films, featuring the original cast as well as The Next Generation, on Comcast On Demand as well! Trekapalooza!
