Star Trek Side By Side Photo Comparisons

By now you’ve probably already been blown away by the amazing, first images released by Paramount from their new Star Trek movie several hours ago here. I’ve found myself revisiting them again and again, comparing this new version of Trek with the old one in my head.

Rather than just using my imagination to stack J.J. Abrams’s version up against classic Trek though, I’ve put together a few side by side comparisons, facing off characters and items revealed in the new pictures with their classic Trek interpretations. How does Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk stack up against Shatner's? How different are the uniforms? Those are the questions plaguing this Trek fan, and here are the answers:

JAMES T. KIRK

MR. SPOCK

LEONARD MCCOY

MONTGOMERY SCOTT

HIKARU SULU

UHURA

PAVEL CHEKOV

ENTERPRISE BRIDGE
