About 440 soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines will get to see J.J. Abrams' Star Trek at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait on Saturday, about a month before its May 8 stateside premiere, in a special screening attended by cast members, Army and Air Force Exchange Service officials told the Air Force Times.

Stars Chris Pine (Kirk), Zachary Quinto (Spock), Zoe Saldana {Uhura), Eric Bana {Nero), Karl Urban {McCoy) and John Cho (Sulu) will be on hand, as will director Abrams, the paper reported.

The filmmakers worked with the local command and exchange service to bring the special screening to the troops, Roy Robertson, AAFES' vice president of restaurants and hospitality, said in the announcement.
