As you may have heard, 'Star Trek' director J.J. Abrams has some different stars in sight for his next project; the man is the chosen one for 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' There have been conflicting reports regarding his involvement in the inevitable 'Star Trek 3,' but, regardless, do you want J.J. to return for a third film, or should someone else take over?
This past weekend J.J. Abrams unleashed the second entry in his rebooted 'Star Trek' franchise, 'Star Trek Into Darkness.' With Kirk, Spock, Uhura and company back in theaters, we've been giddily revisiting all things Enterprise, and we realized there is one thing this reboot demands more of: George Takei. Like swashbuckling Sulu wouldn't have improved things by 100%.

Before we all get to see 'Star Trek Into Darkness' in theaters, we had the good fortune to speak with our old chum Simon Pegg, following a riveting conversation with his co-star Karl Urban about all things Bones McCoy,
For Scotty fans, 'Into Darkness' is a big wet kiss, as our ol' Aberdeen pub crawler/inadvertent inventor of transwarp beaming is all over this movie, offering laughs, cheers and thrills. Take a look at our conversation to learn about why, one day, he barfed on set. (Also, there are itty bitty SPOILERS in here, but all pertaining to stuff that happens early enough. Just read the damn thing and don't be that guy.)
