Star Trek world tour in Kuwait
Today JJ Abrams and his actors from the new Star Trek movie stopped at Camp Arijan in Kuwait to show the film to a group of US service members. According to a report issued by the US Army, actors Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine, John Cho and Eric Bana along with executive producer Bryan Burk and director/producer J.J. Abrams presented the film to the service members.

JJ Abrams is quoted as saying:

It struck us that there was an opportunity to not just have it be about the movie, but to have it be about something that’s more important than all that stuff

It’s an honor to come here to say hi and shake hands with the people who protect us
The Star Trek crew met first with Brig. Gen. James T. Walton and other HQ staff before showing the film and then staying for a Q&A and mingling with service members for photos and autographs.
