I agree completely. If Abrams wants to make a good movie, he better find a way to get the classic trio back in action

Urban should be good as Bones.
Kelly had a way with his facial tics and expressions that brought the character to life.

My favorite characters from Trek, TOS, have always been the comic villians. Harry Mudd, or Cyrano Jones. They are colorful charaters that move the story along. I'm just so sorry that we can't bring either one of those guys back. I hope the new movie has something like them in it's storyline.

Default Greatest Character

Mine has always been Captain Kirk. He was loyal to his girl "the enterprise" and he was tough as a Captain, yet he could show emotion to his crew. He will always be my hero and if they can come up with the same "family ties" that TOS had, this movie will be a hit. So many things in that series are here in actuality. It is amazing how Star Trek had the first "cell phones"! Cannot wait for this movie to come to the theater................

TOS just seems to have the legacy behind it. That is why it would be so awesome for this movie to succeed. It would bring the greatness of Star Trek to more people. They would get to enjoy Trek. I think Kirk, Spock and McCoy is the best trio out of all the Star Trek series and that is why it is so revered.

There is nothing like the Three.
The eventually got into the other characters...a little but it was all about the 3 musketeers. They were equals...Everyone else was just conversation pieces...it's not like it is now...they develop everyone ont he series now days...
It was struggling back then...Now parts are somewhat easy to come by...

I'm glad the others stayed around though.

The three musketeers is a very good term to use. Kirk may have been the captain, but he needed Spock and Bones to get through all the tough times, which there were many indeed. Here's to the originals.

there were so many tough times it's wonder Mc Coy ever grew old...At least Spock got out of it and became an Ambassador.

Yeah, an ambassador who then went undercover on ROMULUS (how someone that well known throughout the galaxy could ever walk around unrecognized is beyond me...) to forward the unification movement. Doesn't seem like a great way to stay safe.

Not that that thought would have ever crossed his mind--at least not without saying to himself that, "Well, if I die, I die in the service of millions. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Or the one."

Not making a martyr of himself, just pursuing his course with a logical understanding and acceptance of the risks involved.

WEll that's that cowboy diplomacy he learned from Kirk. Always breaking through boundaries...I think that happened after he came back from the dead.
