Star Trek Gets Assist From NASA

JJ Abrams' has called on NASA to make sure Star Trek's spaces scenes are accurate. Carolyn Porco, leader of NASA's Imaging Science team, has joined the crew as consultant on "planetary science and imagery."

"This is a fabulous opportunity to bring to a wider audience the discoveries we've made at Saturn, and the spectacular sights we have seen there," Porco said. "And what better way to do that than to make use of those discoveries in the crafting of imagery for one of the most popular movie franchises of all time."
