As part of its viral Web outreach for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek, Paramount is letting denizens of the PlayStation Home community-based Web service dress their avatars in Starfleet uniforms, the Kotaku Web site reported.

Paramount Pictures and Sony Computer Entertainment also announced that a series of Star Trek movie promotions would be beaming to Home users, including an exclusive video greeting from Abrams, as well as the new Star Trek movie trailer today.

The new uniforms—think twice before putting on that red shirt—arrive in the Threads Store next Thursday.

Meanwhile, director Abrams and stars Chris Pine (James Kirk) and Zachary Quinto (Spock) will visit Home for a Q&A session on Monday.
