Handful of New Star Trek Photos from Playing Cards?!
Apparently "playing cards" are still popular? Or maybe there is some interesting viral going on here. Our friends at IESB have scanned a handful of the Star Trek playing cards, which feature some new shots from this newest Trek universe. These photos include our first look at Diora Baird as the green Orion slave girl, some other crew members, some new alien creatures, the "jellyfish ship", and some additional shots of the USS Enterprise. Considering I'm more excited to see Star Trek than any other movie this summer, I can't exactly skip these photos, especially when I hope that a few of these convince more people to see this!
A chronicle of the early days of James T. Kirk and his fellow USS Enterprise crew members.
Star Trek is directed by J.J. Abrams, of "Lost", "Alias", and Mission: Impossible III previously. The screenplay was written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, of The Island, Mission: Impossible III, Transformers, and the upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. This is the 11th movie in the Star Trek universe, following most recently Star Trek: Nemesis in 2002. The original "Star Trek" TV series first aired in 1966. Paramount will debut Star Trek in theaters everywhere on May 8th this summer!

I think the green alien female is a little obvious. Jokewise. Too obvious. Kirk wasn't hooking up with them until well in his campaign.

And the green alien female is just a telltale sign.. JJ said he was always more of a Star Wars guy. Judging by the background, it looks like an Earth bedroom, maybe it's a dream sequence, but still... it's too self-referential, and I couldn't see it being in the movie with any purpose.

What does an Orion slave girl (so well ingraned in TOS that it carried on beyond to other series, and are one of the few races to have their superficial interest more meaningfully explored) have anything to do with JJ being a Star Wars guy? I mean, the Orions are an official, reasonably well documented, and very popular Star Trek. That might be the only reason they're in the film, but why not? They were known well before Kirk bumped into them (Kirk meets one half way through Season 1, the one with Captain Pike), being in the pilot episode (the other one with Captain Pike) and Archer meets them way before Kirk's time during Enterprise. Kirk might have heard of them or read up on them once, so if it is a dream sequence (and it would make sense) it could be there because it could be one of his many motivations for joining Starfleet. Sleeping with a hot alien chick. Seedy, but likely, and it fits the character. And seeing this is a story about things like why Kirk joins Starfleet...

Dude its a reboot right? Who cares about when the Orion girl shows up in the tv show. She's hot and that's all that matters now =)

This seems like an homage to the original "Star Trek" series. I love the unique nostalgic touches. I've always pegged JJ Abrams as a quintessential Star Wars/ Star Trek fantasy world geek and this just proves it!!! I'm checkin' this flick out! 🙂
