And everything contained herein will be of interest to anyone who is beginning to catch the Star Trek fever, which is likely happening to our friends from the web who are attending ShoWest in Las Vegas at this very moment. We’re not there, but we will be bringing you updates as cool things are revealed, leaving you no choice but to visit our site everyday, no matter what. Are we clear? Okay, let’s go.
Today’s update comes courtesy of the folks at MTV, who’ve gotten their hands on some new trading cards from the upcoming Paramount Pictures release Star Trek, from director J.J. Abrams. A few of the cards feature Zachary Quinto as Spock, as well as one that features a meeting between new Spock and old Spock, played by Leonard Nimoy. There are some action shots, some alien shots — including Eric Bana looking menacing as the film’s villain Nero. But most interesting is the shot of perpetually nude hottie Diora Baird (seen in Playboy here – NSFW) as the Orion slave girl. We’ve seen her green hotness in previous trailers, rolling around with Captain Kirk (Chris Pine), but this is our first look at the entire, er, landscape. And my what a great view it is. That is above, the rest of the images are below.
Star Trek hits theaters on May 8, 2009.
