After weeks and weeks of gossip and secrets the news is out: the starship USS Enterprisse has a new Captain! For the eleventh installment in the neverending Star Trek Saga, director J.J.Abrams ("Lost") has managed to win over Matt Damon for the part of the young Captain James T. Kirk. As rumour goes Damon already signed on. Interesting is that long time fellow ("Good Will Hunting", "Project Greenlight") Ben Affleck was the top candidate so far.
In the tradition of Star Stret prequels, Star Trek XI will be centering around the young years of Captain Kirk on the starfleet academy. We will see.
