Cue Borg jokes!
Actually, we’re pretty sure J.J. Abrams is avoiding the Borg, but considering he hired Peter Weller, likely as the older villain we previously mentioned when we noted the far more attractive (sorry, Pete) Alice Eve was being cast, we’re sure that we’re of the half of blogs reporting this doing RoboCop jokes and the other half are calling him Locutus.
This isn’t Weller’s first visit to the franchise: the handful of people who could stomach “Enterprise” might remember his as John Frederick Paxton, an anti-alien racist who used a comet to threaten Starfleet (long story). Also, Syracuse University attendees might know him as their history professor. No, really.
