Paramount Already Thinking About Sequel To Abrams Star Trek June 4, 2008

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: CBS/Paramount,Star Trek (2009 film),Star Trek Into Darkness , trackback

With the JJ Abrams Star Trek movie still eleven months away, is it too early to be talking about a sequel? Apparently to Paramount Pictures the answer is ‘no.’ Star Trek co-writer and executive producer Roberto Orci has revealed exclusively to TrekMovie.com that the studio is already perusing the new Trek team to nail them down for a follow-up.

In yesterday’s article about JJ Abrams views on Spoilers, Orci dropped by the talkback section and interacted with the fans. Although Bob expressed his backing of the Abrams ‘no spoilers’ policy, when pressed for some spoilers (including showing him the Queen of Diamonds from The Manchurian Candidate), Orci let the following out of the bag:

Alright, since I saw the queen I can give you a spoiler about the Studio’s state of mind (not about the movie itself). The spoiler is that they already want to lock us down to write the sequel. Take that as you will.

After reading that TrekMovie.com contacted Mr. Orci to get some more details. Orci first wanted to clarify that Paramount wants ALL of the Trek team back, or as he has dubbed them: ‘The Supreme Court.’ This would mean the return of co-writers/exec producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, producer Damon Lindelof, executive producer Bryan Burk and director/producer JJ Abrams. There are no detailed discussions yet, but Orci tells TrekMovie “they would like to lock us down” for the sequel, but he points out:

Unless the studio had a horrible experience with us, they would be trying to lock us down as standard operating procedure. They haven’t even seen the movie yet, so this news should not be taken as evidence that we are anything special. It’s a quite normal practice.

It has previously been reported that Paramount has signed all the major actors with options for two additional films, which is also standard practice. It should also be remembered that the first talks between the Abrams team and Paramount about the 2009 Star Trek feature were in early 2006. That being said, all indications from TrekMovie sources are that Paramount is very enthusiastic about the new Star Trek and the team behind it. The move of the film from Christmas 2008 to the Summer 2009 season was a big indication that they think Trek can join Tranformers (and now Iron Man) as one of their stable of tent-pole franchises.

If one were to guess, then the likeliest timing for any sequel would be 2011. Paramount seem to be spreading their franchises out with two year gaps now like with the 2009 Transformers 2 and the talk of a 2010 Iron Man 2. Of course finding time on the busy schedules for the Abrams team is always an issue. Abrams has multiple TV and film projects in the works as a producer and there has been some talk of him directing an adaptation of the Steven King’s Dark Tower following Star Trek (he will at least be producing it). For their part Orci and Kurtzman have a number of projects going, most notably now the aforementioned Transformers 2, but also nine other films as either writer or producer. Lindelof keeps pretty busy as the showrunner for a little thing called Lost and Abrams, Burk, Orci and Kurtzman are also spending a lot of time on their new Fox TV series Fringe, premiering in the Fall of 2008. Regarding schedules, Orci notes:

As far as our schedules, I’m not sure what the hurry is since Star Trek doesn’t come out for a year. Some of our development is up in the air right now, so I don’t know exactly when we could get started.

Of course since we still don’t know where Star Trek ends, it is difficult to talk about what the sequel would be like (except we know it would retain much of the same cast). When asked if he and Alex have put much thought into the sequel, Orci states:

It depends on what you classify as “much.” We’ve certainly thought about it some.

But what to call it?
One of the issues Paramount and the Abrams team will have to deal with is what to call a sequel. Star Trek II is already taken. TrekMovie.com suggests finding a name like The Dark Knight, the sequel to the Batman reboot Batman Begins. There is no reason that ‘Star Trek’ needs to be in the title. This year we will see the 22nd film in the James Bond franchise and not a single one has had the name ‘Bond’ in it.

Comments

1. boJac - June 4, 2008

Cool! How about : “Where no man has gone before”

2. JARED WYNN - June 4, 2008

sounds like abrams and gang has caught lightening in a bottle and are keeping it there.

3. Captain Slow - June 4, 2008

interesting

4. That Guy - June 4, 2008

How about: The Heavens Beyond….

5. Aaron - June 4, 2008

How about “syndicated franchise” for the name? I think that sums up Trek in a nutshell. I say that with tongue in cheek and with a tad bit of sarcasm.

6. Prologic9 - June 4, 2008

“There is no reason that ‘Star trek’ needs to be in the title.”

Tell that the “Enterprise” season 3.

BTW, Dugg for obscure Ghostbusters Reference. :)

7. Driver - June 4, 2008

The sequel to STAR TREK need not have STAR TREK in the title. Just the insignia somewhere on the poster.

8. Stanky McFibberich - June 4, 2008

I hope in the sequel, the fake actors are replaced with more fake actors.

9. Quatlo - June 4, 2008

Whatever the 2009 film or any sequel(s) to the re-imagining are called, movie theaters will simply put “Star Trek” on the exterior signage. Same as with # 1 – 10. And that’ll work if the 2009 film is not a huge flop.

10. john doe - June 4, 2008

that would be an intersting film to say the least

11. Cyberghost - June 4, 2008

Music to my ears, except I will turn 50 in 2011, as many times said on another 60’s TV show “oh the pain, you bubble headed bubbie” How about another movie stab at LIS? Season one of course

12. Jason - June 4, 2008

While it would be great, I don’t think they should dabble too much in the original series crew. The problem is that it might start treading on the series. To do that, they’d have to do a damn near-impossibly good job on it.

There’s nothing stopping them from doing a film about Sulu, Uhura, Chekov, and Spock reuniting after the films. I wonder if that would go down well. Unlikely though.

Another Next Gen movie is what I wanna see. A final film that’s a bit more appropriate, and of course better.

Still, they’ve got such a good cast for this film, it’d be a shame to not use them again. Ahh so many thoughts…

13. Daoud - June 4, 2008

Wow, a twelvequel… a dodecaquel… As I said in the other thread… thanks Boborci for this nugget of news, for what it’s worth.

Titling Star Trek XII could be a contest at trekmovie.com! I’ll contribute my favorites, since the otherwise perfect “These Are The Voyages” has been RUINED for FOREVER:

“Starship Enterprise”
“Strange New Worlds”
“Star Trek, Chapter 2″ (Doing a “A New Hope” to Star Trek [2009] and considering it “Star Trek, Chapter 1″
and
“Star Trek, Part Deux” Just kidding on that one.

14. MORN SPEAKS - June 4, 2008

Get crackin’! Write that story, so we can start the spoilers on that movie!

15. MORN SPEAKS - June 4, 2008

And would it hurt to have Morn in the sequel, he could be over a 100

16. SirMartman - June 4, 2008

I recon just stick to the common “Trek” name,,and then start adding the longer Film name when they start filming the other “Trek” movies, it will be in tune with all the other “Trek” films then.

for example,

Star Trek XI

followed by,,

Star Trek XII
The Contuning Mission

Star Trek XIII
Return Of the Enterprise C

etc,,,

:o )

17. D - June 4, 2008

Well, they want to get new fans…

How about a title that has absolutely nothing to do with Star Trek or the movie itself? They might trick people into thinking they’re going into a chick flick or something.

Attack of the Clones did that to me…

18. ZtoA - June 4, 2008

DOOMSDAY MACHINE!

19. Mike T. - June 4, 2008

They could always copy the Bond movies and use book titles like “Final Frontier” or “Vendetta”. They could always adapt the books. Look at Jurassic Park, the movies are way different than the books.

It would still be cool if they used Star Trek in the title, like “Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back”.

20. Spocko - June 4, 2008

How about:

Star Trek XII:
“The Shat Comes Back”

21. That Guy - June 4, 2008

Thats a new way to spell it.
Try it this way instead Boobie.
Its spelled as stupid as it is.

22. caz316 - June 4, 2008

STAR TREK XI THE NEW BEGINNING
STAR TREK XII THE 2 YEAR MISSING OF THE 5 YEARS MISSION
STAR TREK XIII THE FIST CRACH OF THE ENTREPRISE,Spock going to vulcun and Kirk being promoted.
But first,we still have to wait 337 days,stil nothing,no real photo,no preview and no Shatner.

23. Newman - June 4, 2008

possible titles for a sequel?

My favourite is “Where No One Has Gone Before.”

24. Marcus Johnson - June 4, 2008

Please come out with a sequel.

25. scootypuffjr - June 4, 2008

Sequel title? “To All Things An End”
Plot? End of the five year mission.

26. CmdrR - June 4, 2008

Bob, again my congratulations.
Can you give us any insights on a two-year plan for a movie franchise? Do you feel cold on a project after so many months, or are the characters easy to step back into? Is two years too short a time (Patrick Stewart said that and sadly, he may have right when it came to TNG’s final couple of films.)

Oh, and what color underwear will the main villain wear in XII? (Just starting the forbidden questions early.)

27. Captain Otter - June 4, 2008

The Quest for More Money.

28. Sean - June 4, 2008

The title of a sequel of a prequel would be very tricky. I think it might end up being the first Star Trek movie with “Star Trek” not in the name.

29. Dennis Bailey - June 4, 2008

“Star Trek: You Can’t Kill It With A Stick.”

30. Negotiator - June 4, 2008

I guess JJ won’t want us to see Star Trek 11 before 12 comes out because it might spoil any surprises. So, get ready for another 24 month postponement. ; )

31. Lord Garth, Formerly of Izar - June 4, 2008

Star Trek II Electric Bugalu

32. Kevin - June 4, 2008

I also like Where No Man (or One) Has Gone Before.

I’ll throw a few out there

Star Trek: The Technicolor Talkie
Star Trek: The Wrath of Mudd
Star Trek: The Search for Shatner’s Hairpiece
Star Trek: The Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea… in a Yellow Submarine
Star Trek: The Final Movie
Star Trek: Alas Poor Yorick
Star Trek: Generation Y
Star Trek: First Date’s Can Be Awkward
Star Trek: Rebellion
Star Trek: Mortal Enemy That Kind of Looks Like You But Doesn’t

33. SPB - June 4, 2008

TAKE A PAGE FROM “IRON MAN”…

Call the sequel STAR TREK: MARK II

34. Redjac - June 4, 2008

Why does it have to have a number? A colon and a secondary title of some relevance to the plot should be sufficient — but preferably not one those wretched one or two word secondary titles they’ve had that have been the bane of some of the worst ones. You know what I’m talking about — “Generations”…”Insurrection”…”Nemesis”…

This seems to be the new “odd number curse”…and I am surprised no one has noticed before me…lol!

35. Tom - June 4, 2008

some sequel title suggestions

Star Trek: rim of the star-light
Star Trek: wand’ring in star-flight
Star Trek: find in star-clustered reaches
Star Trek: Strange love a star woman teaches.
Star Trek: His journey ends never
Star Trek: Will go on forever.
Star Trek: While he wanders his starry sea

36. CmdrR - June 4, 2008

Star Trek: Prime Directive
Star Trek: To Boldly Go
Star Trek: Risk Is Our Business

OK, I’m stretching, but there’s a wealth of untapped potential in titles and stories. Just keep it human, even when it’s alien.

37. SPB - June 4, 2008

OR (THIS MIGHT BE TOO GEEKY)…

Since we already had STAR TREK II (with the standalone Roman numerals), how about adding a “Part” and a standard “2?”

STAR TREK, PART 2

Yeah… way too geeky. Never mind, it looks terrible!

38. SPB - June 4, 2008

We really need a TREK film called…

STAR TREK: GET OFF MY BRIDGE, MISTER!

39. Charles Trotter - June 4, 2008

Nice!

Too bad they can’t use “The Final Frontier” for the sequel. That’s already been taken… and the movie that ended up with that title wasn’t exactly great.

Why not just name the sequels as though they were regular episodes? Somewhat like the Bond series, as Anthony suggested.

Or they could put “Warp” into the title, like “Star Trek: Warp 2″, “Star Trek: Warp 3,” etc. Ok, that may not work well…

Can’t use “Phase II”… the crew of the former New Voyages may not like that. ;)

How about “For the Box Office is Hollow and I Have Touched the Cash?” That has a nice ring to it. :-P

I still like my suggestion from last year — “Star Trek II 2: Enterprise Boogaloo!” Think about it, Bob — I smell a hit! ;)

40. VERG - June 4, 2008

I personally can’t wait for Star Trek 27! ITS GOING TO BE AWESOME!

41. Garovorkin - June 4, 2008

The movie hasn’t premiered yet and they are already talking sequel? Wow, they must be really confident in what they have.

42. Irishtrekkie - June 4, 2008

hmm how about “Wagon Train to the stars” lol ?

43. Daniel Broadway - June 4, 2008

For sequel title, how about simply : “The Final Frontier”?

44. Steve - June 4, 2008

Historical note: Star Trek II was originally called Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan when first released, no numerals included (I think they were added when it was released on video). I think “Star Trek” has to be included in the title somewhere.

#44 –

Someone with greater knowledge will no doubt correct the both of us, but I’m pretty sure only a handful of premiere prints went out with only “STAR TREK: THE WRATH OF KHAN” as its title card. All subsequent prints had the “II” added in.

Odd how they handled that. The novelization (I believe) came out a few weeks ahead of the original release, and THAT had the “II” missing also, yet all the trailers, TV spots and posters at the time clearly stated “STAR TREK II.”

62. The Rusted Robot - June 4, 2008

Star Trek: Galaxy

63. OneBuckFilms - June 4, 2008

Since the first is simply STAR TREK, I think the sequels should start with STAR TREK and have the story name afterwards.

No numbers, just the story name after STAR TREK.

The Next Generation films had a cool titling system, but perhaps using more that one word would help.

If the story of the Second movie continues directly from the first, perhaps STAR TREK part 2.

[…] new Star Trek films and have learned something very interesting. Robert Orci has revealed that Paramount Pictures are already pretty aggressively thinking about the next film in the franchise. While the studio had already signed the main actors for an option for two […]

106. grapesofwraith - June 4, 2008

Great to hear about a sequl, but I’d like to see J.J’s view of a post-nemesis star trek universe. To me, Star Trek has always been about moving forward, and Enterprise was a step backwards. But I don’t mind revisiting Kirk for a few stories, but the Trek that influneced me the most was the TNG era, and I’d love to see what happens after that era. Maybe our TOS crew could go into the future.
Anyways, if the words “Star Trek” are not in the title [which may or may not work…didn’t seem to help “Enterprise” much], I’d like to see a title that people would know is Star Trek at first glance, like something from the “These are the voyages” speech – even if it’s a subline or something

109. Devon - June 4, 2008

I have a question.. and not sure if it will make since.

Since this is the 11th Star Trek film, and a possible 12th film with the name Star Trek… can the films actually be viewed as “Star Trek 11″ and “Star Trek 12″ or do they more or less want these films to be a beast of their own and will try to be separate themselves from the other films, in a sense being their own film franchise, if that makes sense?

113. jimbokett - June 4, 2008

The next movie should be centered around an alien character named T’welv. They can call it Star Trek Twelve.

114. DEMODE - June 4, 2008

I think that any Classic Trek movie has to have a majestic title. If you look at the TNG films, they all had boring one word titles (with the exception of First Contact… the only good TNG film). Nemesis… Generations… Inssurrection… Yawn!

You need to have an exciting title. “The Wrath of Khan” is an amazing title for a film. “The Undiscovered Country” is pure class. “The Final Frontier” screams adventure! Any Trek sequel needs to embrace the titles of the classic show and movies.

115. navamske - June 4, 2008

116. Boborci - June 4, 2008

I just want to see the movie first before we commit to another so that we can see what works about the first one and so that we can be confident about knowing that we are the right people to write the second one.

117. Closettrekker - June 4, 2008

#97—Now that’s what I want to see, and a third installment could cover the time period between TMP and TWOK. Or perhaps the 2nd AND 3rd films could be set in that time. I always assumed there was another 5 year mission somewhere in there, given the 15 elapsed years between the events in “Space Seed” and TWOK.
At the very least, there had to be some adventures between the refit and the Enterprise’s assignment as a cadet training vessel. That would also give Bob, Alex, and the boys a chance to introduce some new characters–replacing Checkov, who is on board USS Reliant as First Officer, for one. I always felt that the original films lacked in the area of introducing fresh characters to serve aboard the Enterprise and add something to the stories (Saavik, Decker, and Ilia being brief exceptions, of course).
Anyway, I anticipated a series of films all along. But it is nice to know that there are already ideas floating around…

118. Closettrekker - June 4, 2008

#106—I respect that opinion, but I don’t personally see the appeal in that. I am biased, I’ll admit, as I am a TOS-era fan above all else, but TNG-era characters have never succeeded in attaining the iconic status of their TOS predecessors, and the era of the 24th Century is, IMO, far less romantic on screen. Unless they are willing to reboot the TNG universe to the point where there are no holodecks, artificial officers, ship’s counselors, children aboard starships, Ferengi storylines, or neanderthals with warp drive (TNG Klingons), I would stay at home just as I did for all the TNG movies that came before…It’s the revisiting of the great TOS-era and its characters which has me so excited that I come to this site nearly everyday. It is what has me planning my 2009 Summer Vacation around the May 8th release date. When Nemesis was in theaters, I barely noticed. I certainly didn’t pay to see it.

Mr. Bob#116- You are the right people to write the second screenplay, and the third. There is no one more qualified. Do you know any screenplay writers with your experience who are also loyal fans of the series, and who care more about the end result? Really Bob, you and the entire Supreme Court are ST’s best hope. So, get started on that treatment before we find it necessary to hold you dangling upside down inside a particularly long, deep Jeffries tube.

I agree with Anthony, I don’t think the next movie needs to have “Star Trek” in the title and it certainly should’t be called “Star Trek II”. I always thought that the sequel(s) should follow the opening credits for TOS. Something like:

The Final Frontier
These are the Voyages (yes, I know that was the name of the crappy ending to ST:Enterprise lol)
The Five Year Mission
Strange New Worlds
New Civilizations

They’d better not become too reliant on Trek. It’s a prequel, so they can only make so many movies before they reach the point in the timeline where TOS began. Then I don’t see many ways for them to keep going.

156. captain_neill - June 5, 2008

The way Paramount are pumping so much money into this film which seems to be a reboot seems to be a kick in the balls for the past 42 years of Trek.

It remains to be seen if this will be proper Trek and already they are giving JJ Abrams kudos for one film as the man who did Star trek. Roddenberry did Star Trek. if Abrams has the attitude of I think Star Trek has been wrong these 42 years and I know how to do it properly then I will be angry. Roddenberry created Star Trek and Abrams better honour that.

However, if this adds to the mythos and the legend of Star Trek then I will love the film. If its a great film I will accept the recast, they will never take the place of Shatner et all but they will be accepted.

But Paramount having more faith than they ever did in the past decades annoys me loads. Do you think Star Trek will lose something by appealing more to the mainstream audience. I find the mainstream cinema too dumbed down these days.

How ’bout they commission a story start getting that out of the way instead of waiting until the movie is released and trying to rush it?

159. Dom - June 5, 2008

Oh do cheer up, captain_neill (156)! ;)

Star Trek was a show made for a mainstream audience in the first place. TNG was also intended to be. The modern shows didn’t become ‘fan focused’ until much later on.

Gene Roddenberry had the original idea for Star Trek and a lot of other people had a hand in making it great: Gene Coon, John Meredyth Lucas, Bob Justman, Herb Solow, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Deforest Kelley, for starters!

As as been stated endlessly (to an eye-rollingly tedious extent!) the new film will ‘respect’ what has gone before. Why would Leonard Nimoy, who has retired from acting, come back to appear in this film if he didn’t like it? Why would he be telling everyone how great it is? No one is saying they’ll destroy Star Trek; no one’s going to burn every Star Trek incarnation for the last 40 years.

But, commercially, TOS has always been treated as a somewhat separate property to TNG. TOS comes from a different era, has a different style of storytelling and a different view of the universe. Roddenberry didn’t want them ever to cross over directly (ie with major characters!) And when they did, they were pretty poor affairs (Unification 2, Relics, Generations.)

Remember Roddenberry had less and less influence over where TOS went down the years – realistically, after season two, he only directly had a hand in ST:TMP. He decanonised TAS and, as Bob Justman said, didn’t really have any liking for TOS season 3 or any movies after TMP. So the Cult of Roddenberry really isn’t relevant here.

There hasn’t been a proper TOS film for nearly two decades, so now is a good opportunity to revisit the most successful big screen incarnation of Trek ***and*** feature a young cast – something that none of the previous ten Treks has been able to do, given they were direct sequels to TV shows.

I know you have this thing about having to ‘accept’ a cast, but, at the end of the day, they’re only actors. I could live with more cast changes down the line, if necessary.

At the end of the day, it’s impossible to bring back the original cast due to old age and, regrettably, death. But Star Trek (I don’t really feel the need to call it TOS) is great concept with great characters, particularly Kirk, Spock and McCoy, and has more stories to tell. I, for one, can’t wait!

161. Fansince9 - June 5, 2008

That hand behind the Star Trek icon looks like Mickey’s. Is this a hint? Is Disney going to be brought on to the project somehow?

I know I should have hung that idea up a long time ago, but the prospect of Disney maybe taking part in Star Trek projects excites me (especially if it eventually means a Star Trek themed attraction someday at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Star Wars needs some competition).

162. s125 - June 5, 2008

How about Star Trek: Timescape, where a young Kirk is accidently thrown forward in time to the early 24th century after test piloting a new type of shuttlecraft. Convinced that he is stranded there, he forms a relationship with a lonely captains wife, who falls pregnant. (The child will grow up to be Captain Kathryn Janeway)

Meanwhile in the 23rd century, Spock refuses to believe that his only friend has died in the shuttle accident. McCoy believes Spock has gone mad (saying something like “that green blood of yours has begun to rot your brain, son” or words to that effect) and tries to get him sectioned.

In a Vulcan sanitorium Spock meets an elderly Vulcan lady who went mad after her human lover killed himself to save their ship (that and she was addicted to some kind of space dust) who turns out to be T’Pol.

T’Pol is the only one who believes Spock and together they hatch a plan to get Kirk back. They steal a shuttle and create a temporal vortex to reach Kirk and take him back to the 23rd century.

However the temporal vortex alerts an old enemy, the Borg, who have assimilated temporal wepons technology from the Krenim, and have been using it to track Kathryn Janeways lifetime, in the hope that they can kill her in the past to preserve their future. They hatch a plan to kill Kirk before the shuttlecraft incident, preventing Janeways birth, and altering Federation history.

Which leads to the thirdmovie in the series: Star Trek XII: Resistance Is Futile

163. captain_neill - June 5, 2008

oh i am looking forward to the movie and I know others had a hand in things in TOS days. Justman devised the Captain’s Log. There is Star Trek I love that Roddenberry would not have liked but I fel the ideals where still in there. Insurrection had his ideals and Enterprise had those kind of stories.

I can get use to a recast when it comes out. Its Abrams secrecy thats getting me worried. I am just use to all the spin offs having different crews that I never believed it would happen. I was only commenting they seem more hyped up here than any previous Star Trek movie since TMP. JJ Abrams must be that good in their eyes. I hope he has got it.

Oouch! Stop that! You made my brain hurt! :)

159 – Dom:

Ditto! Captain_Neill, really…dude…I have been a Trek fan from birth (I like to say that because I was born the year Trek first premiered and cannot recall a time when I didn’t watch and love Trek), but I realize that it’s a fictional universe…do you?

Things change, that’s life. Trek must change in order to remain fresh and most of all alive. JJ, Bob and Alex (et al) seem to have one incredible grasp on things and I’ve come to trust their ideas and judgement based on what they’ve said and their previous works…so…relax…really. Enough of the negativity and enough of the whining. Your support of Berman is also in a minority (though many disagree on the exact moment he began to ruin Trek, most all fans now agree he did. I still say he began the first steps in Trek’s near destruction the moment he took charge.)

And finally to Mr. Orci, sir! It is always a pleasure when you drop by. Thank you again for your time here. I have to say, I’m with Denise on this. I’ve written films and directed films and I have a pretty good sense of how to pick up on things. I truly believe that Trek is in excellent hands.

Your modesty only proves the point. Your desire to allow us to judge once the film is out and your seeming willingness to step down should it fail to deliver is extremely heartening! Hollywood needs more like you, Alex and JJ! Really.

BTW if you ever need anyone to help with anything, writing…you know anything…my mind is at your service! Really, judging from your previous works we do think a lot alike! LOL. Just kidding…not really bidding for a chance to work with you.

Ok…yes I was. Please?

PS to Captain_Neill:

I’m not trying to flame you, dude. I just suggest you relax, enjoy the ride and feel the antici……….pation! (Sorry, couldn’t resist that.) It’s the energy and excitment around this Trek that’s so invigorating and it hasn’t surrounded Trek for a long time now. Enjoy!

As for the wait and “secrecy,” well, I hate to tell you but before this little gadget called the internet, we folks who loved movies had to wait for the film to come out to find out anything that happened in it. Secrecy was even stronger then than now. So stop your whining. Secrecy and a desire to hold as much back as possible in order to help make the experience of the movie more palpable and powerful does not equate with bad news or that there’s something wrong. In fact, in this case, it means the opposite…there’s a buzz and we want to make sure it pays off to the maximum!

STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION

172. captain_neill - June 5, 2008

169- I know its not real. I’m not sad. I guess I love Star Trek too much. I guess I should embrace the change instead of fearing it.

I think about these kids growing up watching this and not seeing it on TV with the original actors. It is good getting Trek on the mainstream

I dont rate JJ Abrams as highly as other people because I did not like Lost, I got fed up after 10 episodes and asked myself what is so special about this one guy. But looking back I admit JJ Abrams MI 3 was the best out of the three. Hope that makes sense.

I believe that once the film comes out I will probably end up loving it and I will be saying. I do love the fact that its the best hype Star Trek has had in years, guess I was update it was not with the actors I loved in those roles.

I love james Bond and was unhappy that Casino Royale was going to be a reboot and Daniel Craig was too young, but it turned out one of the best Bond films in later years. It will be the same here. Dont bitch on TNG, they became a legend in their own right, just their movies were not as well received as the first 6 films. I dont think we should forget TNG.

I just want to see the actors before I accept them because I dont know if they will do justice to the roles at this point. Hope that is cool. I am excited, its cool there will be Romulans in the plot, hopefully they will have more screen time than playing second fiddle to Remans.

Enterprise did get better in later seasons. I will love the film and I am excited but some nerves about not knowing what JJ will change.

I believe this film will be better than Nemesis but TWOK is a hard one to beat.

Hope this redeems me

173. Mark Lynch - June 5, 2008

I can understand the negative reactions to the re-casting (ie #156), although sometimes the harsher comments on other threads here have taken me by surprise.

But ultimately the original era of Star Trek is the most recognised by the people on the street so it makes business sense (can’t believe I said that) why Paramount are doing a movie like this. Yes, TNG was wildy successful during its time on television, but it has not been gone long enough to be re-imagined.

It has been often mentioned here by many others since Trekmovie first got going that James Bond movies have survived numerous cast changes.

So I ask, why can’t Star Trek manage one?

There seems to be a solid cast assembled and if LN came out of retirement to take part then it can’t be all doom and gloom for us fans.

My main concern is that the essence of Star Trek (for me; a future worth living in, humanity sorting out their petty differences) will somehow have to be watered down so that it will appeal to enough of the mainstream movie goers to turn a profit.

As a life long ST fan, I am personally feeling a bit unsettled over the re-casting. It’s hard to let go of childhood heroes.
But the only way to let it work, I think, is to disassociate the actor from the character (not easy though).

However, this is the only way we will get to see new adventures with the original characters. So I say give it a chance, and lets vent our spleens, if necessary, in about a year shall we say?

If it all goes pear shaped, we’ve still got our TOS TV and movie DVDs :)

My opinions of course, your mileage may vary.

(Serious comment) This is good news, of course, as it shows that the studio is willing to make the commitment and a certain level of risk-taking (since they don’t know how well STXI is going to fare). It also allows the studio to nail down contracts with the cast before they get all famous and demand loads of money (assuming the movie does well, which I am confident it will do).

(Silly comment) What if STXII is itself a prequel to STXI? In that case, it can be called…

That is a great comment, you have nailed it on the head exactly. its hard to separate the characters from the actors as I find them intertwined.

I hope this film adds to the series. I understand this being a wise choice as people look to TOS as Star Trek.

I dont want want TNG re imagined, because why re imagine all them? re imagining is meaning reboot.

It is exciting and I will tone down. But it will be hard for me to accept these actors after growing up with Shater, Nimoy et all

#173—“My main concern is that the essence of Star Trek (for me; a future worth living in, humanity sorting out their petty differences) will somehow have to be watered down so that it will appeal to enough of the mainstream movie goers to turn a profit.”

I don’t know why it would. If anything, those ideals might play even better in this decade than it did in the 60’s, and those “radical” thoughts are now more mainstream. Furthermore, I’m not so sure the 6 original movies said a whole lot about that vision at all, aside from the obvious social commentary in TVY and TUC. Bob Orci doesn’t believe his story is watered down, dumbed-down, or anything but true to the ST vision, and he is a lifelong fan of Trek. Why not give him the benefit of the doubt? I know I will. I’m far more appreciative of the fact that someone is even trying to do this than I am nervous about the outcome. After all, I have nothing to lose but $10 and a couple of hours of my time. Small price, no?

#182—I don’t have a problem with the recast at all. In fact, I’ve been both touting and looking forward to such an endeavor since the late 1980’s. These tremendous characters are not locked inside the original actors that portrayed them. They are much bigger than that, and they deserve to go on long after Shatner, Nimoy, and the other surviving actors.

I have probably seen a half dozen actors play Hamlet, and it doesn’t change the essence of the character from one performance to another. I still see Hamlet as Hamlet, not as the last actor I saw portray him onstage. I look forward to seeing this generation’s perspective on my childhood fantasy heroes, and I do so with an open mind. I hope you also find the perspective to do so. What have you to lose?

Assuming I know nothing about filmaking, as a co-writer of the script, do you have enough “pull” to request to participate or observe the editing process of this film?

Basically what I am asking is, is the reason you have not seen the film yet voluntary (because you want to wait until it is finished), or is no one else allowed in the editing room besides JJ and the editors?

196. MikeG - June 5, 2008

Whew, I guess when it comes to titles Mr. Spock was right: “There are always possibilities.”
Personally, I care less about the title than I do about the story. I’d like to see a story that doesn’t necessarily have a bad guy, a “human” enemy like Khan or Kruge or Soran, etc. (please note the word “human” in quotes, cos I know someone will yell at me that Kruge wasn’t human). I’d rather see a “bad guy” like V’ger or the Probe or the Borg (NOT these examples, of course, but similar), something that looks truly alien, something that represents “strange new worlds, new life, new civilizations, boldly going,” and all that. Obviously, such an antagonist would still need to meet the requirements of story-conflict, in order to captivate the audience. But, for my money, you wanna make people’s heads spin? Come up with an antagonist we’ve never seen the likes of. I often wonder what TMP would have been like with a better script. That film, and TVH, have been the closest things we’ve seen to our heroes confronting a truly alien enemy. I’ll grant you FC was a good film, but, in the end, it relied on the Borg Queen-antagonist… another “human” enemy. If we keep getting Kirk vs. another Khan-like villian, then it’s just rehash Star Trek, it’s Die Hard in Space. Let’s see these characters take us somewhere we’ve never been before, and confront something we’ve never confronted before. I’m confident that if anyone could do it, the Supreme Court could. Anyone else think so?

61. SPB… “Odd how they handled that. The novelization (I believe) came out a few weeks ahead of the original release, and THAT had the “II” missing also, yet all the trailers, TV spots and posters at the time clearly stated “STAR TREK II.”

Not all of them. I still have a promo flier that they were handing out at the theater. The front is black with a phaser bolt and the legend “At the end of the universe lies the beginning of vengeance…” The inside is the movie poster logo title “STAR TREK: THE WRATH OF KHAN” without the Roman Numeral II and has small pictures from the movie (some evidently outtakes or early effects tests) around the periphery.

I can’t say for certain, but I’m pretty sure the film did not have the “II” in the title when I saw it in 1982. I thought it was added for the Pay Cable and later VHS releases.

Star Trek: The Muppets Strike Back

Mirror universe Kermit (with a goatee) and Miss Piggy (with a skimpy slave-girl outfit revealing all her bacon) attack Earth with their souped-up Pigs in Space planet-eating spaceship.

Only Kirk and Company can save the galaxy yet again in this provocative cross-over concept, by combining the talents of the creators of Alias and The Muppet Movie.

When asked how this daring concept came to fruition, producer and director J.J. Abrams said, “It’s all about merchandising. In order to give the Star Trek franchise lucrative tie-in’s with McDonalds and Burger King, we need to appeal to the Happy Meal market. After all, the five-year-old crowd is the next generation of Star Trek fans.”

Rumors are circulating that the third sequel in the franchise deals with Klingons, time travel, and a bad guy with a weapon whose countdown must be stopped with two seconds left before the good guys are killed.

boJac, your idea for a title is absolutely perfect. Kudos.

“Where No Man Has Gone Before…”

That’s excellent. It says Star Trek without saying Star Trek. Everyone should be able to recognize it.

For those out there who constantly poop on this whole thing and smart off/joke about the franchise, why? Why not just go find something else to do….oh, that’s it…you don’t have anything better to do.

“Where No Man Has Gone Before…” would be perfect.

Star Trek XII: The Franchise Burnout

I personally dont like the idea of going beyond this one film with the TOS crew, hell, I still would have rathered the new movie be a 24th century crew. But these days its all about money, more than ever, and if they burn out Star Trek to make an extra buck, they dont care.

225. Anthony Pascale - June 5, 2008

although it is fun to speculate on names, I would hope that the name actually reflects the film itself. Names like “Wrath of Khan” and “First Contact” would have been fine without their “Star Trek” prefixes and were based on what the film was about.

that being said I think “Prime Directive” would be a good title (i know it is a book). I also think a film that has a moral dilemma about the PD would be interesting, and relevant to modern day. Insurrection attempted to do this, but didn’t really deliver. Of course for Kirk, the PD was also more of “The Prime Suggestion” but it makes a good plot device.

226. j.t.kirk - June 5, 2008

The title Star Trek Captains log is interesting. Use it for a T.V. series title, where each week you are introduced to a differant ship and crew at differant times in the Star Trek history. They need not all be on the U.S.S. Enterprise, and could span from NX-class to the latest sovereign class.
Just a thought.

227. Closettrekker - June 5, 2008

#224—It’s the 24th Century spinoffs of Star Trek which are burned out, IMO. It would have been fine with me if they had never gone in that direction to begin with. Even the one attempt to “backtrack” (ENT) was missing the element of the iconic characters which only the TOS-era television run and the subsequent 6 feature films was able to produce. The “burnout” of the original crew’s adventures in the late 80’s and very early 90’s was due to the age of the cast and the floundering plausibility of the characters’ individual careers being so stagnant as to allow them to remain aboard the same ship. Recasting those characters is a way around that. There is plenty of the original 5 year mission left to cover, as well as 7.5 years between TMP and TWOK to explore as well. That leaves quite a bit of room for another feature film series centered around the original characters. If it were just another 24th Century adventure, I would not pay to see it ( I never did), and I certainly wouldn’t be perusing this site everyday for news about it. It is only the return of the original characters which keeps me excited about future Star Trek, and the only way Paramount gets any of my money. I think this recasting and revisitation to the 23rd Century is long overdue. That’s just my opinion.

228. snake - June 5, 2008

some unmistakably startrek phrases that could be used without ‘Star Trek’ in the title – like Batman 2 being called ‘The Dark Knight’ or Superman 2 being called ‘Man of Steel'(if it is)

The Final Frontier – taken

Where No Man Has Gone Before – taken

These Are The Voyages – taken

To Boldly Go… – this one is free

Where No Man… – this one is free

Federation – this is free (for a movie)

Prime Directive – this is free (for a movie)

Up Till Now – this is free (for a movie)

The Wrath of Shatner – this is free

although i really dont think they should use one without Star Trek in the title…remember ‘Enterprise’?

i think they will just do what TNG movies did – ‘Star Trek: whatever’…they cant use roman numerials again and i really dont think they will call it Star Trek ‘2’ as when people say it it’ll be like ‘which star trek 2? khan or the new one?’

maybe they could do something trendy like batman begins or the matrix sequels..i.e. no colon…so – Star Trek Reloaded or Star Trek Begins or Star Trek Returns or Star Trek Warp

as for the seuel itself i wonder what theme it will be? Timetravel? Alien Threat to earth? straight action? political?

Maybe we’ll finally get a mirror universe film..

maybe set it before TOS again..or during the last 2 years…

229. Dr. What - June 5, 2008

I know “Where No Man Has Gone Before” is already the title of an episode, but last I checked “Star Trek” was already taken, too.

IMO, Where No Man Has Gone Before would be a great title because, like the episode, it’s (kind of) like the start of a rebirth for Trek.

I think we’re all too fixated on traditional Trek film naming conventions, which are boring and ultimately counterproductive. The more I think of it, the more inclined I am towards the idea of episodic titles. That is to say, if this renewed film franchise is to develop in the spirit of the first 5-year mission adventures, then why not name them in the same manner as the TOS episodes? I’ve always loved those original episode names. The story titles were captivating, thought-provoking and even poetic in some cases. Cast-off single word titles are effective in attention grabbing, but hardly inspire anticipation of the adventure within. And don’t worry about a wordy title harming a film’s revenue generating chances either. Lord of the Rings:The Return of the King did just fine at the box-office, thank you!

236. Dark_Lord_Prime - June 5, 2008

How about, simply…

“Star Trek: Year One”?

(year one of the five-year mission, of course, since Stark Trek 09 deals with the events leading up to that.)

238. tadayou - June 5, 2008

It’s nice to hear that Paramount is embracing this project so much, but I tend to agree with Mr. Orci, that it’s not really reasonable to speculate about the sequel before we know what’s going on in the first movie.

On another note: While everyone here is speculating about (sub)titles for the second film, can we take it for granted that the first one is simply called “Star Trek”? I always had the impression that a subtitle for that one was still to be revealed, though I don’t know where that comes from.

With all respect, may I suggest a 12th “Star Trek” motion picture to either pick up where “Nemesis” left off with completely new characters that join the Enterprise-E crew with veterans Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Newly-promoted executive officer Commander Worf, Lt. Commander Geordi LaForge and Dr. Beverly Crusher (only if Patrick Stewart, Michael Dorn, Levar Burton and Gates McFadden return), or otherwise feature 26th-century characters that were originally introduced to a supposed-to-be planned animated series.

Star Trek: Andromeda
In the revised timeline, the tale of how the Enterprise discovers that the Galactic Barrier is actually the exterior of an ancient, vast, crumbling space-time corridor which catapaults them to the Andromeda Galaxy with no chance of return when it collapses. Gary Mitchell and Elizabeth Dehner are injured and begin their transformation into gods. As their powers increase exponentially, the crippled ship is threatened by the evil Q continuum. Only Dehner and Mitchell, can destroy the Q and get the Enterprise home, but can they be trusted to care?

Star Trek: The Battle for Vulcan
After Vulcan was destroyed in the first neo-Trek film, the few surviving members of the race sought to colonise a new world, but the settlement is threatened by the Klingons who claim the new planet would be of strategic use to UESPA in event of a Federation-Klingon war. A ruthless Klingon agent, disguised as a Vulcan is assassinating the members of the Vulcan emergency government and Spock is forced to come to terms with his strained relationship with his widowed father, who is now the Vulcan leader.

Star Trek: Assimilation
An insect/cyborg race discovers the Federation and begins to assimilate the Federation’s outer colonies. Eventually, the Borg swarm overruns Earth, James T Kirk takes command of Starfleet and leads the fight to protect the Federation Government in Exile on their new home of Babel. But the Borg can control people with small insects that attach themselves to the back of their necks and control them. As the fight for Babel begins, a murderer stalks the Enterprise’s corridors and his target is James T Kirk.

Star Trek: Resurgam
A young cyberneticist and eugenics freak Noonien Soong has created a cyborg army that can annihilate the Borg. When Soong’s army wipes out the Borg, two cyborg soldiers, Data and Lore, demand recognition of their sentience and right of self-determination. Spock and Kirk give Data and Lore asylum on the Enterprise, as the embattled Federation sends their most brutal officer, Captain Garth, to take back the cyborgs while a corrupt diplomat called Louis Picard seeks revenge on all cyborgs for the deaths of his entire family line.

Star Trek: Defiant
The Enterprise protects the planet Bajor and a newly discovered wormhole from the Cardassians, while trying to rescue the USS Defiant which has been hit by a gravitic mine in the wormhole. Inside the wormhole, the crystal ships of the Tholian military try to entrap the Enterprise.

Star Trek: Universe of Destruction

Really corny one there. But it could be some evil guy that creates a device that will destroy the entire Milky Way galaxy. He actually accomplishes his goal, but it creates a parallel universe that is in the past about one week, so the Enterprise finds out by someone or something by seeing the future’s destruction, and tries to stop the plot to destroy the galaxy, maybe by a race or a “Unified galaxy government” in this different galaxy that believes the Milky Way inhabitants are destroying the universe just by existing. That’s epic! It can also be a “green Trek” and turns out to not be true in the end. Kirk and co. prove it.

I actually kind of like the episodic title idea. Although it would likely draw immediate comparisons to Star Wars.
I would also like to say that I don’t think we will ever see a Mirror Universe movie, it just relies on too much explanation for non-fans to get involved. The audience would have to really be accomodated with the actors/characters to pull off something like that. It would be better to save it for a series.

GO FOR IT!!!!!

302. Todd Judson Thomas McDanel - March 31, 2009

Now that I’ve said my peace, may I please to calm down and receive some help? I have sent multiple, multiple, multiple post cards and letters
to the Paramount Star Trek stars on the Memory-Alpha.wiki Web site.
as far as Mar. 31. I never have received even ONE answer. This is NOT
treating a fan, who keeps their business going, properly and customer-
friendly. Could the “Supreme Court” take a look into this, please?
I have also addressed a letter to Leonard Nimoy and Brad Weston,
for all the good it will do me. Would the other fans and readers of this
column please urge the Star Trek Stars to please respond to my letters and queries, and not believe I’m dead to the world and Star Trek?!
Thank you so very much.
Peace and Long Life,
Forever in Star Trek,
T. J. T. McD.

It is logical to assume that there may be a link between the space craft “Voyager 6″ as enhanced and returned by the “Machine Planet” (Star Trek the Motion Picture) and the creation of the Borg and its philosophy. Vyger was looking for the creator and it eventually joined machine with man or a cyborg (Captain Dekker and the Leutinent Ilea changeling) this may be something to base a new motion picture on with the person “Q” still putting humanity on trial. Perhaps Vyger could be thought of as the founder of Borg society itself and may be the key to settling the conflicts between “free will” and ‘forced servitude”. Time travel may serve to alter the damage done by the borg by changing the Borg philosopy of assimilation of multitudes of lifeforms as a step in getting closer to perfection. Changing the timeline in this manner would be carefully considered by those who inforce the “temporal Prime Directive”
This is just a suggestion for a future movie. Someone would have to study the structures of past movie scripts and dialogues to eliminate conflicts in the entire “star trek saga itself”

Keep the numbering system, but employ good old standard Arabic numbers. Star Trek 2, Star Trek 3, etc. That way, when we get to number 38 it’s Star Trek 38, not Star Trek XXXVIII. It’s Star Trek, not the Super Bowl or the Olympics!!

BTW- the movie was beyond awesome!!

I have seen Star Trek XI (or 9) ten times now. It is a thorough adrenaline rush. I can’t wait for the sequel. Two comments: Please make sure Kirk’s hair is blonde (the scenes where it appears red were very distracting). And do not have any famous guest stars. They will detract from the new crew who rightly should be the focus. They are young, gorgeous, and energetic. All they need is an equally exciting script as the 2009 movie. And although I adore Shatner’s portrayal of Kirk, he is such a scene stealer that it would be a disservice to the story, and Chris Pine who is a perfectly wonderful Kirk in his own right, if he were in it. Shatner created Kirk but its time to move on. Its a different century and a different time line. It’s not ageism, I am 65 years young.

The film is out – great work from the CGIs and effects guyes, and a good bit of casting. The sequel to the prequel – how about Uhura on maternity leave, Kirk actually settling down with one woman, a fair amount of Pon Farr, the problems of where to go and who with, Drs Flox and McCoy would have their hands full there I think. How to build up numbers of an endangered species, aliens with selective reproductive abilities spring to mind – Spock could produce 2 kiddies one pure Vulcan one pure Human – the franchise goes on. Can they battle the killer flying pancakes again [Anihalation Project] please. You could have hours of fun with Chekov – after all at 17 he’s got a lot to learn about life.

PS – you could always bring Tuvok into the equation somewhere!

Star Trek 2009 was mindblowingly good. Surprisingly good. I mean, it got 90+% on Rotten Tomatoes, and that’s saying something!

• Star Trek Beta

• Star Trek Neo

Can’t think of anything else. When the three disc Blu-Ray thing gets released, I’m getting the puppy.

I saw Star Trek in a movie theatre when it first came out and I loved it! I loved the story line, I loved the cast, I loved the charactors. I’ve always felt that Star Trek needed new blood, and that this movie provided that new blood. I’m hoping that JJ Abrams does a Star Trek sequal, maybe even a tv series. I’m just not sure whether there should be an elder Kirk in the new movie. We need something new to add to the Star Trek mix. I thought the movie was supposed to be a re-make of the original series. If it was, I felt it was very well made re-make. I hope it continues with the sequal.

Sequel? Too early? Yes? No? Maybe?

All these questions with no answers.

Well I have only one thing to say about this film. It would have been better if it had starred Hulk Hogan as Captain Kirk and Ringo Starr as Spock.

Thnak you for your time.

I loved the movie too! Now as for joke names for the hoped for sequel, I give you, “STAR TREK: SHELDON VERSUS BRENT SPINER”! ;-)
