How does the cast of J.J. Abrams' in-the-works Star Trek feature-film "prequel" compare to its predecessor? Upon the announcement that the final two vacancies had been filled - Chris Pine will have "the com" as Kirk, while Karl Urban is scrubbing in as Bones - TVGuide.com set up this nifty side-by-side comparison Star Trek photo gallery for your amusement and, yes, fanboy-tastic scrutiny.

I'm the first to admit, I scoffed at Pine's casting, but damn if he doesn't measure up nicely versus the young Shat. Speaking purely superficially, I think John Cho is the most off-the-mark as Sulu - boy's going to have to meet the barber.
