The new adventures of old Star Trek

Did you know about this and not tell me?

Star Trek Continues E01 "Pilgrim of Eternity"

Jimmy Doohan's son playing Scotty? Marina Sirtis as the ship's computer? Nichelle Nichols guest appearance?

It's certainly not J.J. Abrams' Star Trek. And I count that as a plus, as I've seen about as much emotion splashing out of Zachary Quinto's Spock as I care to.

This holds true to The Original Series' aesthetics and sensibilities, for better or worse. And I'll apologize right now for the hour you're about to lose watching this. If you're a TOS fan, you won't regret it.
