Trek news: Wynona Rider will be Amanda

I'm not exactly sure what to make of this, but Variety is reporting that Winona Ryder will play the role of Amanda, Spock's mother, in the new Trek movie.

I like Ms. Rider, so I'm OK with that. I always thought Hillary Swank would make a good Vulcan (of course, Amanda is human, but I'm just thinking generally here). I wonder if they'll put in an aging T'Pol in there...?

And does anyone else think that the Nathan Petrelli character from "Heroes" is like a younger, skinnier Scott Bakula?

And could I be any more, like, y'know, shallow?
