So, it’s still nearly six months until the moment Amelia and I have been waiting for — “Star Trek XI” comes out in May 2009! But they’re already Kirk-teasing us (get it?) with two movie trailers. I have to say both of them totally burst my nerd bubble. Ugh, the Captain Chris Pine looks like the kind of tool you accidentally have sex with while on vacation. Only the combination of sun and margaritas would get your guard down enough to do his kind of douche bag. Honestly, I’d rather have sex with 70-something Shatner. But on the up side, Spock is one hot of hunk of space junk! So, maybe, just maybe there’s hope this prequel won’t suck. Above is trailer #2, which at least has some original content.

Science Fiction is full of freaks, but the heroes make us want to get freaky. From spandex spacesuits to alien armor, just looking at these guys makes us sweat. So, in honor of the gentlemen that fend off evildoers and fulfill our fantasies, here’s The Frisky’s Top Five Space Studs of Sci-Fi.

Ever wanted to run your hands all over Captain Kirk? Well, you’re not the only perverted geek. Artist Devorah Sperber has strung along Spock, McCoy, Kirk, Sulu, and even Uhura. She nailed them all by being crafty and recreated scenes from a vintage Star Trek episode in bead and spool curtains. The pieces are as colorful as the late sixties and as awesome as the space explorer hunks themselves. Sperber, inspired by reruns on Spike TV, has elevated fan art to high art. Perhaps, our Amelia can get her Next Gen “I heart Wesley Crusher” notebook doodles in a gallery too? [Wired and Caren Golden Fine Art]
