April 27, 2009 - Star Trek / Newsweek cover story

Scooped on Monday, April 27, 2009

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."
