Star Trek, as shown on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.
Entertainment Weekly released an image of Zachary Quinto as Spock and Chris Pine as Captain James T. Kirk from J.J. Abram's upcoming Star Trek movie, the cover of its Trek-themed issue due out on Oct. 17.
The magazine also features an interview with director Abrams, who responds to William Shatner's YouTube.com video chastising Abrams for not including him in the film.
Abrams has seen the video, of course. "I don't know how my life has become a thing where William Shatner talks to me through YouTube," Abrams told EW. "I was such a huge fan of his, but we wrote a scene for him in the movie, and it didn't feel right. And he said to us--he said publicly--that doing a cameo didn't interest him. Which I totally appreciate. But we did try." EW tried to reach Shatner, but he declined to be interviewed. Through a spokesperson, he said, "I don't think it would be appropriate for me to be involved in the Star Trek universe at this point."
