The most recent issue of Empire Magazine has been released and there are several new Star Trek XI photos courtesy of the magazine.

As reported by EmpireOnline, the recent issue of Empire offers new Star Trek XI photos, including a cover shot of Zachary Quinto as Spock and Chris Pine as Kirk.

There are two single shots of Spock and Kirk, with Spock in Science blue and Kirk in black. The photos can be enlarged to show greater detail.

The other set of pictures shows: Spock in front of the Enterprise viewscreen, Kirk in an armored EVA suit, and Zoe Saldana in a red dress.

The article in Empire includes an interview with J.J. Abrams. In part of the interview, he discusses the challenges of making the 1960s boldly-colored uniforms palatable to today's audiences. "For me, the costumes were a microcosm of the entire project," said Abrams, "which was how to take something that's kind of silly and make it feel real. But how do you make legitimate those near-primary color costumes? How do you make legitimate the pointy ears and the bowl haircut? It's ridiculous and as potentially clichéd as it gets. How do you watch Galaxy Quest and then go make a Star Trek movie?"
