Star Trek writers reveal title

StarTrekXI_Logo.jpgThe writers of Star Trek XI have revealed some more details about the film. Robert Orci has revealed the new title, hold on people...

Star Trek

Yes, that's it. He also tells us that there's going to be more action than any of the previous films, well with them writing and J.J. Abrams now announced as director would you expect less?

He also says that there's more budget behind this one as the target audience is everyone, not just the Trek fans, there will be a much broader appeal.

Both he and Alex Kurtman say that there will be a spaceship and star trekking, so it hints at more than just an Academy storyline, and they admit they have talked with Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner, confirming all the previous rumours. It won't be a prequel though, it'll be a...wait for it, I know you all know what he's going to say...a reimagining. Blah, blah, blah...Oh stop spinning it. Here's what they actually say about it from MT-we hate non US people-V through Moviehole:

"We're not going to start totally from scratch," Orci said. "We want it to feel like it's updated and of the now. That's actually the discussions we're having now: how to keep the look of the universe yet have it not look like nothing's new. It's tricky."

Well it's a little, and it will have to do us for now. What about that casting though? Sorry, I can't help it, I'm too eager!



What a strange title. I am puzzled now and crossing fingers. I have high hopes for this one.

Perfect title. Though it might drive away people who think Trek is just for the nerds. Maybe they should've just titled it: "Kirk" or "Enterprise."

Still, I like the title and can't wait to see what Abrams does with this. It is EXACTLY what the Star Trek universe needed: a jumpstart.

I'm excited. Oh yeah, and Shatner is God. Anyone who says otherwise must deal with my fists.

Keep it simple, and that's what theyre doing.
