A brand-new cast is beaming into the iconic roles of the crew of the starship Enterprise as the revamped Star Trek lands in theaters May 8. PEOPLE has your guide to the Starfleet's finest and their first forays into the enduring sci-fi phenomenon:
NAME: Chris Pine
CHARACTER: Capt. James T. Kirk
WHERE YOU'VE SEEN HIM BEFORE: 2004's The Princess Diaries 2; 2006's Smokin' Aces
NEXT UP: The indie drama Small Town Saturday Night.
"As an actor you search for great roles," says Pine, 28. "This one just happened to be named James Kirk." While figuring out ways to make the part his own, he also watched William Shatner in the original series looking for "things that I felt that I could use without hitting people over the head with a bad impersonation," Pine says. "He's got a very theatrical quality that just made me smile every time." He admits donning Kirk's familiar gold uniform "was a fun day ... [but] as for the part being mine, I think people will always and forever connect Mr. Shatner to that role."

Harold and Kumar star John Cho and his wife, actress Kerri Higuchi, are expecting their first child together, he tells PEOPLE. "I'm really excited – and scared," he says.
Cho, whose film, Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, is in theaters April 25, also reveals that they are having a boy.
While Cho and his wife prepare for the addition to the family by moving into a new home, he admits he's slightly overwhelmed. "They're just going to give you the baby, and then you have to take it home. There aren't any doctors around telling you what to do," he says. "That thought is really scary to me."
