STAR Trek XI is the 11th entry in the Star Trek film series based on the franchise created by Gene Roddenberry.

The film is being produced by Lost co-creators JJ Abrams (who is directing) and Damon Lindelof. It was written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

Chris Pine plays a young James T Kirk, Zachary Quinto a young Spock, and Simon Pegg is Scotty.

The film will focus on the early lives of Captain James T Kirk and Mr Spock from the time they first meet at the Starfleet Academy to embarking upon their first mission.

Pegg will take on the role originally played by James Doohan, and will join confirmed members Eric Bana, Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy in the cast.

Quinto – best-known to TV fans for his excellent portrayal of Sylar in Heroes – will play Spock, while Chris Pine – of Just My Luck and Smokin’ Aces fame – takes on Kirk.

The film is currently scheduled to be released in American cinemas on Christmas Day, 2008, according to its distributor Paramount Pictures.
