Is it possible to have a train wreck in space?

All the major roles might be nailed down, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop having fun with Star Trek XI casting news ‘n’ rumors, right? Of course it doesn’t!

First, let’s talk about last week’s rumor that Rachel Nichols (of P2, not ESPN) was being considered for a part in the franchise reboot, reuniting her with her Alias boss, Trek director J.J. Abrams. Turns out that the rumormongers were on the money — as Nichols tells the Toronto Sun:

“I’m very restricted on what I’m allowed to say,” she says. “But yes, there’s a good chance you’ll see my shining face in the new Star Trek … My mom even e-mailed me about it because she saw it (online) and I hadn’t told her yet. There’s a lot of buzz about it, but honestly, I don’t even know the name of my character.”

“J.J.’s one of the most generous people I’ve ever met … He’s very, very loyal.”

While the details of Nichols’ involvement in the new Trek are still fuzzy, Variety reports that another actress has joined the cast, and her role is 100% confirmed. Read on:

Paramount Pictures and director JJ Abrams have set Winona Ryder to play the Vulcan mother of a young Spock (Zachary Quinto).

Christmas 2008 suddenly seems so very far away.
