Though we're still not sure which direction writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are going to take Star Trek XI, we're pretty sure the boys will go retro and focus on a young Kirk and Spock as they begin their training at the Starfleet Academy. While you Trek fans argued continuously over whether Kirk and Spock meeting at the Academy was even plausible in the first place, the names Matt Damon and Ben Affleck immediately began circling the rumor mill.

After the Damon buzz lingered for a few months, the man, his publicist and agency finally debunked the entire thing, saying something along the lines of, "we've never even heard of Star Trek -- is that some sort of eating utensil?" (Okay, that's not an exact quote, but it's close.) Forget about asking whether William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy will have any involvement -- those two flip-flop more than your local congressman. So, if Damon and Affleck will not be playing a young Kirk and Spock, who is? Ya know, if that's the route they're actually going.

So, I ask you: You're in charge of putting two actors in the roles of a young Kirk and Spock -- who do you cast?
