On the eve of the home video release of Star Trek comes the photographic evidence some of us have been waiting for: the proof that the favorite small blue droid from Star Wars is indeed in Gene Roddenberry's universe. This snapshot shows Artoo is visible for a fleeting moment as the Enterprise dodges the debris of Federation ships in orbit of Vulcan. A blink-and-you-miss-it moment to be sure, but one that you can confirm for yourself when you pick-up your Star Trek DVD or Blu-ray.

Star Trek is being re-released for a limited run on 100 IMAX theaters this coming Friday. The move is unusual since the film has been out for nearly four months but Paramount lost out on having the sci-fi adventure play out a typical four-week run in IMAX venues last May due to the Night at the Museum sequel grabbing the jumbo-sized screens two weeks after the Trek's May 8 opening.

Paramount Pictures sent us this exclusive image from Star Trek showing Chris Pine holding up the roof of a shuttlecraft from the inside. Wait a second! Alright, so it's not as sexy as showing the Enterprise in battle. We asked for a photo of Kirk making out with a Horta but got this.

In the wake of the swine flu crisis that has hit Mexico, Paramount has decided to delay the opening of Star Trek in the beleaguered country. Paramount's decision to put off the May 8 opening follows in the footsteps of 20th Century Fox which also delayed the opening of X-Men Origins: Wolverine in Mexico due to the epidemic.

Mexico has been hit hard by the swine flu outbreak. It's not just the theaters that are closed; professional sporting events in stadiums that can hold tens of thousands are now played without spectators and no one knows when it's going to get better. And Fox and Paramount aren't the only studios stuck in the same boat; Sony Pictures may also delay the Mexican opening of Angels & Demons.

This week's Newsweek features a cover story about the new Star Trek film and the magazine's website has the feature article. The Newsweek angle is that Star Trek has suddenly become cool.

"It's the Spock plot strands that give the new Trek its best shot at once again commanding the zeitgeist," writes reporter Steve Daly. "Spock's cool, analytical nature feels more fascinating and topical than ever now that we've put a sort of Vulcan in the White House. All through the election campaign, columnists compared President Obama's unflappably logical demeanor and prominent ears with Mr. Spock's. But as Spock's complicated racial backstory is spun out in detail in the new Trek—right back into childhood—the Obama parallels keep deepening."

The dossier section on the official Star Trek movie website has been updated with three new files: Spock, Starfleet Academy and the United Federation of Planets. In addition to having three new photos to look at (including this one of a Starfleet space station used for the Federation dossier sheet), there is also more factoids that well-versed fans of Trek will appreciate. For instance, on the listing for the Federation you have confirmation that the organization was founded by humans, Vulcans, Andorians and Tellarites and that current membership "includes 120 planets and 700 colonies."

The love that the online reviews have given this movie have me officially excited to see it.

Ricco Suave

Not a big Star Trek fan, but I'll see this based on Simon Pegg being in it alone.

Baelzar

I just watched the trailer again. Not feeling it.

Kaeos

Hey Patrick, your "Who's In It?" tag needs to include mention of Simon Pegg as Scotty.
