Bradford Telegraph & Argus: Midnight date for eager Trekkies

April 30, 2009 – 6:02 pm

UK’s Bradford Telegraph & Argus takes a look at the anticipation of Star Trek‘s opening at the National Media Museum’s IMAX Theatre:

Tim Neal, visitor insight executive at the NMM and self-confessed Trekkie, said: “Seeing the new Star Trek on Imax, a screen the height of four double-deck buses, will take the movie to new heights – literally.

“It’s the first space opera to be show on Imax and I can’t wait to see it.”

Mark Adams, whose IT business in Horsforth is called Galileo after the shuttle craft on the USS Enterprise, said he grew up thinking his dad was Captain Kirk. He said: “My favourite Trek quote is by Spock in Amok Time. After battling for a woman’s attention he says: ‘Stahn, you may find that after a time wanting is far more rewarding than having. It’s illogical but often true’.”

The new film goes back in time to when the crew of the USS Enterprise – Captain James T Kirk, Mr Spock and Dr ‘Bones’ McCoy – made their maiden voyage in the most advanced starship ever created. The new recruits must find a way to stop an evil being whose vengeance threatens to destroy mankind.
