I'm not exactly sure what to make of this, but Variety is reporting that Winona Ryder will play the role of Amanda, Spock's mother, in the new Trek movie.

I like Ms. Rider, so I'm OK with that. I always thought Hillary Swank would make a good Vulcan (of course, Amanda is human, but I'm just thinking generally here). I wonder if they'll put in an aging T'Pol in there...?

And does anyone else think that the Nathan Petrelli character from "Heroes" is like a younger, skinnier Scott Bakula?

And could I be any more, like, y'know, shallow?
