I just don't know

Zachary Quinto (Sylar from Heroes) has been cast as a young Spock in the next Star Trek movie, which will feature younger versions of the familiar original series characters.

I think he'll make a good "young Spock". But I think the entire idea of movies featuring the original characters when they were younger is a bad idea. The ST movies (and the entire franchise) have been suffering for awhile. Voyager wasn't that great. Enterprise was just plain awful. Even when Enterprise was good, it still didn't compare to mediocre episodes of some of the other series. Even with the cheese factor all the series have.

Let the movies/tv side of the franchise rest for awhile - just continue to explore the universe in the novels.

Now Star Wars.... I am looking forward to the new SW cartoon and the eventual live-action series they have planned.
