Empire’s ‘Star Trek XI’ Cover + New Images [Updated]

Empire has unveiled the cover image for their upcoming issue, which features Star Trek XI stars Zachary Quinto as Spock and Chris Pine as James Kirk.

The cover photo is an homage to an old promo still of Leonard Nimoy as Spock and William Shatner as James Kirk from the original 1960s Star Trek television series (see Empire’s comparison photos here below).

The issue will feature new images from the film of Pine and Quinto aboard the USS Enterprise, as well as new photos taken of the actors in uniform.

Empire also got to talk to the stars of the film and its director JJ Abrams about the highly anticipated Trek prequel. As a sneak peak, the magazine offered up what Abrams said about updating the characters’ wardrobe …

For me, the costumes were a microcosm of the entire project, which was how to take something that’s kind of silly and make it feel real. But how do you make legitimate those near-primary colour costumes? How do you make legitimate the pointy ears and the bowl haircut? It’s ridiculous and as potentially cliched as it gets. How do you watch Galaxy Quest and then go make a Star Trek movie?”

Abrams had also mentioned Galaxy Quest, the 1999 Tim Allen send-off/spoof of the original Star Trek series, in his interview with EW earlier this month, saying that “it’s so ridiculous, so accurate, so sophisticated, it spoils the Star Trek universe.”

Check all the new images and interviews when the issue hits stands this Thursday, and also see the cover page for a special “energize” image.
