Zoe Saldana is Nyota Uhura. They couldn't have picked a better lady. She's of Afro-Dominican descent so she's really adding diversity to the cast. We've seen her in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl as Anamaria. I haven't seen anything else that she's in but I'm sure she'll be fine. Good luck Zoe!
Also... Checkov has been cast! When did this happen? There should have been dancing in the streets! :) Anton Yelchin is Pavel Checkov. We've seen him in "Taken" and "Criminal Minds". He's actually from Russian. Nice!
I also noticed that Leonard Nimoy was listed in the cast. I didn't realize that the original Star Trek cast was going to be in this. I'm willing to bet my year's salary that Shatner is going to hold out to join the cast at the last minute. He's such a Diva.
I'm getting a bit more excited about the project but I'm still too burned by Highlander: The Source to let myself get too excited.
