Abrams says Star Trek will be new story

JJAbrams.jpgApparently some news sources were reporting that J.J. Abrams was to revive the old script idea for the young Kirk in his days at Star Feel Academy, well Abrams has put those stories to rest, it will be an original script.

Quite rightly the story Filmstalker had from Screen Rant was quite void of any mention of that old script, although the comments were quick to bring up the idea, the original story did not suggest that this was to be the case.

Writing duties will be assisted by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci...

So the fact that they are all writing the script is pretty clear. It's a new script, as I pointed out in the comments. The story from Empire today:

"The whole thing was reported entirely without our cooperation," says the director with a hint of regret. "People learned that I was producing a Star Trek film, that I had an option to direct it, they hear rumours of what the thing was going to be and ran with a story that is not entirely accurate."

Well what do you expect with such a loved franchise, people want it to happen and when a good name is attached they are going to get all excited, can you really blame them? Really? I'm sure it won't be the last leak either!



This is the trekkie week LOL

Well, some people here complained about Starfleet Academy.

I will never see this!


into the silver screen.

Now, what would be better than Picard and Sisko joining against a common menace? Something related with the cardassians, for instance?

I confess to not reading the story. I just have this one question, though...

...did they specify it WOULD be one movie?

I think Abrams' talents would be perfect for a NEW star trek series.

I think you're right Mogulus, and no there's been no specific comments other than he's producing and he and his Alias cohorts writing.

It's surefire bet though that he will direct and then it will be a new story, and it will be a success, and therefore he will be back again...that's not a leap is it?

I really think Rich Berman was doing ok with things on some fronts.

I think also the main problem with Star Trek was overexposure. When you have Next Generation and Deep Space 9 on at the same time, then Generation ends, they came up with Voyager. As soon as these two fizzled out they threw Enterprise at us. This was, for everything Enterprise WAS ( alot of people, it seems, really liked it ), this was a decline in show quality. The Next Generation was arguably more loved and better executed than the original. So why did they think they could get away with throwing us sub par product?

After watching the last movie fizzle and not make such a lasting impact, I really felt slighted. I'd honestly jump at the chance to support Star Trek again... BUT it had better be a good movie or show, because I feel that trekkies' patience is honestly wearing a little thin.

Did nemesis turn a profit? I can't remember.

Abrams is also a Star Wars geek- I love the guy already!
