Behold Star Trek's Big Bad Monster

How cool will it be to see a giant monster in a "Star Trek" movie? Seldom do sci fans get treated to seeing two different genres thrown in together like this. The only thing that could be cooler would be to have the Enterprise fighting Godzilla. Well, maybe we will get that in the sequel?

Okay, that last part was a joke.

If you are familiar with J.J. Abrams monster film, "Cloverfield", then you know that the director has an eye for bizarre looking monsters, and the one that is in his new "Star Trek" movie is a dozy. Of course, this should be expected, because the creature was designed by the same guy, Neville Page, who created the bug-like critter in "Cloverfield."

Japanese monster fans may think that the monster looks a lot like Biollante. It certainly has that giant pissed off plat feel to it.

Maybe it comes from the same planet as the Audrey II from "Little Shop of Horrors"?

Maybe the crew of the Enterprise should come back to Earth, (just like in Star Trek IV) and bring Godzilla back to fight the plant monster?

..............well?

Okay, I've had too much coffee.......
