More Star Trek Movie News

I have three bits of news/rumors about the upcoming Star Trek movie.

The first bit of news is that the teaser trailer will premier before JJ Abrams other upcoming movie, Cloverfield January 18th 2008. So if you aren't interested in the movie, which I am on the fence about, then look for it the next day online.

Secondly, another actor has been added to the cast of the movie. Tyler Perry will be playing the head of the Starfleet Academy. Don't worry, he won't be dressed up as his annoying old black woman persona. The rumor is that Perry's scene takes place with Spock and Kirk and it relates to him being upset over the rigging of the Kobayashi Maru exam. The famous "no win" scenario mentioned in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan where Kirk is the only known victor.

In relation to the above mention of the rumor about the Kobayashi Maru exam, comes in as the final tidbit of information. Quint, over at AintItCool.com, has reported that a source of his has read the script and shared with him the details of how young James T. Kirk actually won the "no win" scenario. Apparently, Kirk sleeps with a girl who in return alters the program for him. If true, that would be very much in character with the Kirk that we have come to know and love. Also, if true, it will definitely add towards a positive review from me about this movie when I see it.
