Empire Magazine has debuted a few more pictures from Star Trek, and since I left my comments pretty much to myself the last time I think it is finally time to say something about the waxy look of the new Enterprise crew. I know they are young, but did they have to be caked in make-up to make them look like fake humans? And the picture above is not even the worst of the bunch. However, I did a little airbrush work on the old Spock and Kirk to make Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner look a little more like their youthful counterparts. Just mouse over the picture above for the full J.J. Abrams House of Wax Effect™.

I hope the whole film doesn’t look as plastic as these pics because if the bridge of the Enterprise looks like a toy it may not matter what the story is like.

You can check out the new pics here and here or by clicking on either of the teasers below.
