Trek Pulls Out The Captain’s Chair For Faran Tahir

News broke recently that Iron Man baddie (pictured from the recent trailer) and long-time TV actor Faran Tahir will play a yet-unnamed Starfleet captain in Trek XI. Trek-friendly blogs are already touting rumors that he'll play a "strong" captain, contrasting him to "weaker" red-shirt captains like "Ferris Bueller, you're my hero" captain John Harriman, Scotty-rube captain Styles, and "Let's be sure to report that back to Starfleet command" captain J.T. Esteban.

But far and away the most fun piece of this news is a quote pulled out of Trek co-writer and producer Roberto Orci:

"Being a captain in Starfleet should be a special position, and we don't feel that another captain has to be diminished in order to elevate Captain Kirk. If you are a captain in Starfleet, you are a cool motherf&#$er."

That you are.
