So, I don't know how many of you heard of this thing a year ago, but there was a 60s television series called 'Star Trek'. A bit of a silly little thing, rather inspired by the better-known 'Forbidden Planet', about the adventures of an Earth ship in the far future. Apart from some books and comics in the 1970s there were no follow-ups to it and it remains largely forgotten after two series.

JJ Abrams, of 'Lost' fame, appears to be highly favoured by Paramount, the eventual rights-holders of this 'Star Trek' series (it was originally produced by Desilu). So he dusted it off and made a film of it. It's quite fun, an action-adventure movie based on this show. Why did nobody think to do that before, eh?
