Paramount Promotes “Star Trek 2″ At Licensing Expo – But Just Working Title June 15, 2011

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: CBS/Paramount,Marketing/Promotion,Star Trek Into Darkness , trackback

As we reported recently Paramount and CBS are in New York this week at the Licensing Expo to cut deals on their various properties, including the upcoming Star Trek sequel. A new promotional image for Paramount is being shown at the Licensing Expo which touts "Star Trek 2," but that doesn’t mean Paramount has already settled on the name.


"Star Trek 2" at Licensing Expo – just a working title

Here is a set of promo title treatments being shown by Paramount at the licensing expo (via MovieWeb).

One thing that stands out is "Star Trek 2" for the Star Trek sequel. However, TrekMovie has confirmed with Paramount that this is just a working title. As we have been reporting, there still isn’t a final script approved for the film or a confirmed director, so it is still too early for the film to have an official title. For now "Star Trek 2" is just industry shorthand. In the past both JJ Abrams and Roberto Orci have stated that in the end "Star Trek 2" wouldn’t be an option because there already is a "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan." 

As far back as June 2009, Abrams acknowledged that his second Star Trek film would not have a number, saying at a press conference in Mexico

JJ Abrams: [The sequel title] would have a subtitle instead of a number

Here is what Bob Orci wrote on the TrekMovie comments in April of this year:

BobOrci: Damon [Lindelof] might have a title, but we’re not sure.


Can’t be STAR TREK 2, or II, or TOO

Very tricky.

Any ideas?

Trek fans will just have to get used to "Star Trek 2" being used to discuss the film until a title is agreed upon.

But what to call it?

Of course I have been arguing that the final title for "Star Trek 2" does not even have to have "Star Trek" in it. Like with all the James Bond films and the last and next Batman films, you can ensure people know it is a Star Trek film via the associated branding (logo, etc). And you can use some kind of evocative title, like say "Prime Directive." As Bob Orci indicated, coming up with a title for the film is just one of the things they are dealing with for the sequel.


POLL: Sequel title?

Focus on getting the script finished first, worry about a title latter.
whether it says it on screen or not, to me this is Star Trek XII.
I know that it wont be officially called that, but to me its Star Trek XII

2. somethoughts - June 15, 2011

Star Trek something something still on track for 2012, sweet

3. ricko - June 15, 2011

Do what they did with The Dark Knight….. make a great film without Star Trek in the title.

4. Tombo1984 - June 15, 2011

Star Trek: TWO

5. Ralph F - June 15, 2011

I’m still smarting that they didn’t call the Jellyfish the USS SPOCK’S TIME SHIP.

6. me - June 15, 2011

Star Trek – Mudds Women against Orion Slave Girls

7. Star Trek: Voyeur - June 15, 2011

Agree with #3

The Dark Captain Kirk

8. Melllvar - June 15, 2011

#3 The Dark Knight — this is another name for Batman. Another example is ‘The Caped Cruisador’. It’s be much harder to pull off something like this, trekwise… any suggestions? I honestly can’t think of anything people will instantly recognise as the trek, unless they call it ‘The Klingons Return’ or something

9. ensign joe - June 15, 2011

Star Trek: Year One

10. somethoughts - June 15, 2011

I prefer they keep the words Star Trek in the title, nothing to be ashamed of, it worked in the 2009 release. Star Trek Klingons Strike or something would be just fine.

11. Hugh Hoyland - June 15, 2011

Star Trek Rising

12. somethoughts - June 15, 2011

I think another poster mentioned, Star Trek: New Worlds, alluding to the fact that the Vulcans have a new home and the crew explores new worlds.

13. Red Dead Ryan - June 15, 2011

“Star Trek Returns” would be perfect! :-)

14. Red Dead Ryan - June 15, 2011

Or, even better, “The Star Trek Strikes Back”!

15. Sunfell - June 15, 2011

The most important words on the title will be STAR TREK. Everything else is icing.

16. somethoughts - June 15, 2011

also this is the new alternate reality reboot part 2

17. James - June 15, 2011

Star Trek Wars

18. somethoughts - June 15, 2011


I agree!

19. captain_neill - June 15, 2011

Dont call it Star Trek 2 and DON’T drop Star Trek from the title.

Continue with the TNG movie style. Star Trek: Title

20. James Cannon - Runcorn Trekkie UK - June 15, 2011

Star Trek 12. So Very Tired…

21. somethoughts - June 15, 2011

I think I like

Star Trek Returns and Star Trek New Worlds the most.

22. Peppermint - June 15, 2011

I think Star Trek 2 is cool, no need to come up with a weird subtitle which a lot of people aren’t gonna be happy with. It’s the sequel to the start of a whole new series, so it makes sense to me. Plus, Star Trek 2 is not exactly the same as Star Trek II :)

23. ensign joe - June 15, 2011

how about use the same title as the last one:

Star Trek

24. Clinton - June 15, 2011

I don’t think that it matters that “This isn’t your father’s Star Trek.” There already is a Star Trek II. To me, Star Trek (something something) makes the most sense.

25. Star Trek: Voyeur - June 15, 2011

There are two Trek monikers that have more recognition than “Star Trek” which could be used for the title:

1 – Enterprise Unfortunately, this has been used, and badly.
2 – James T. Kirk More non-trekkers remember that name more than the show’s name itself.

Honorable Mention:
3 – James R. Kirk It IS an alternate universe after all :)

26. NuFan - June 15, 2011

People will still call it Star Trek 2 even after it’s given a subtitle. It’s faster to say and more convenient to type. Just like people refer to the TNG movies by their number.

33. Dr. Cheis - June 15, 2011

Use a dash instead of a colon.

34. Ceti eel - June 15, 2011

The problem with a title is that it should encompass the story, but Star Trek should be epic, and finding a title worthy is almost impossible. Less is more.

So, I say…

Star Trek 2

Many of the potential viewers weren’t even alive in 1982, and those of us who were aren’t going to mistake the two.

35. star trackie - June 15, 2011

I don’t have a problem with Star Trek 2. The Wrath of Khan was just that…Star Trek 2: the Wrath of Khan. STar trek 2, without anything else, stands alone just fine and immediately defines itself as a sequel to Star Trek.

Truth be told…I’m not at all convinced that The Wrath of Khan should have ever been called Star Trek 2, as it is hardly a sequel to TMP.

36. MC1701B - June 15, 2011

35. In the first prints, it wasn’t. It was Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan. As I only saw it once in the theater, I can’t confirm whether the number was added during the theatrical run or when it went to home video, but at the press screening in Miami, no II.

37. Ensign Ricky - June 15, 2011

Star Trek: Another Generation.

STAR TREK: The Vulcans Strike Back

Hmmmmm…. Sounds familiar, but I can’t quite place it….

39. Vultan - June 15, 2011

They’re remaking Footloose?
Man oh man… talk about running out of ideas…

40. weyoun_9 - June 15, 2011

I’m down with Star Trek: Something Something. There really isn’t anything other than “Enterprise” which is brand recognizable. Quotes, species, the names Kirk and Spock, but otherwise there isn’t an alternate name (like Dark Knight, etc.) that works for the whole kit and caboodle. Besides, this is another installment of a franchise that they’re proud of. It’s what they’re selling. They should definitely keep the name.

Besides…the last time they took Trek out of the title, they put it back in later because they decided it was a mistake.

However, no to Star Trek: Something Something Dark Side. ;)

41. Tom - June 15, 2011

Star Trek Ascension

(perfect for Klingon theme)

42. Red Dead Ryan - June 15, 2011

“Star Trek II: The Rise Of The Klingons”

“The Klingon Empire Strikes Back”

43. Jonathan - June 15, 2011

It worked for James Cameron, it can work for you:


44. weyoun_9 - June 15, 2011

39 – The Footloose remake has been on the docket for a while…Zac Efron was booked for it and then declined. I thought they killed the project, but apparently not.

45. Bugs Nixon - June 15, 2011

I’m thinking no “Star Trek” at all… people know the brand so well, we know the typeface we know the imagery, I’m convinced the mainstream audience recognises it because its so strong you don’t need the prefix “Star Trek” and instead go with something ‘of the franchise’.

“Warp Speed”

“Boldly Go”

46. dmduncan - June 15, 2011

Night of the Living Trekkies.

47. Bugs Nixon - June 15, 2011

…or simply “Kirk & Spock”, you could animate the title in the trailer the first and last letters of S tar tre K… fade and swap places revealing the K and S.

48. Browncoat1984 - June 15, 2011

Star Trekkin.

49. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - June 15, 2011

51. somethoughts - June 15, 2011

Star Trek 1701A

52. Damian - June 15, 2011

Star Trek in the title is a must. They just got a whole bunch of new fans with the last Star Trek film. You want those fans to come back for the sequel. You absolutely want Star Trek in the title to remind them how much fun they had with the last one. You don’t want to hide the name, you want to advertise it. There is no chance people are going to mistaken this for a Next Generation film because they have a subtitle under Star Trek.

My idea was maybe reverse the subtitle. Have it with the title Star Trek underneath. Then in the film start off with Star Trek in the title, have a teaser sequence, then the title of the film before the main part of the movie begins.

Whatever happens, because of the popularity of the last film, Star Trek must be in the title. Flaunt it, use it, don’t be ashamed of it. Star Trek is not Batman.

53. somethoughts - June 15, 2011

I think Anthony will like, Star Trek: Pascale Array

54. Schnotty - June 15, 2011

Star Trek 12
(it’s the 12th movie and it will be release in 2012)

55. OLLEY OLLEY OLLEY - June 15, 2011

Whenever dude

tagline: It’ll be ready when it’s ready.

56. Bruce Banner - June 15, 2011

Being realistic, the title will probably be:

Star Trek 2013

57. Dee - lvs moon' surface - June 15, 2011

“Star Trek: Something Something” … I voted … something GREAT!!! … I hope!


:-) :-)

58. Areli - June 15, 2011

“Star Trek: Get the script done”

or even better “Star Trek: Stop Procrastinating”

But really, It can’t have Two or II in it since we have already had STII -_- Us fans will call it STXII, or ST12, but for the audiences I think something like:

Star Trek: [Term from the movie that is really important to the plot but you don’t realize it until they say the word]

It would be nice. Make it sound like the title of an episode.

Nothing long like “Star Trek: The City on the Edge of Forever” because fans will complain at it being such an obscure title…but something short and concise like “Star Trek: Corbormite”

59. Trekprincess - June 15, 2011

I am a young Trek fan that is part of those people that were bought into the Trek fan community :):):) I loved the last film and so looking forward to the next installment. 2012 warp speed ahead

60. john ross ewing the 3rd - June 15, 2011

how about Star Trek the Wrath of 2

61. ghosty - June 15, 2011


And have the plot involve the Federation having to protect elves from Klingons so that Christmas is saved (if they still aim for a holiday 2012 release).

62. ObiWanCon - June 15, 2011

Here are my suggestions.

Star Trek: Space The Final Frontier

Star Trek: These Are The Voyages

Star Trek: The Starship Enterprise

Star Trek: The Continuing Mission

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

Star Trek: To Seek Out New Life

Star Trek: To Boldly Go

Star Trek: Where No One Has Gone Before

67. Magenta - June 15, 2011

Wrath of Khan, obviously. ;)

68. Rob - June 15, 2011

I say call it “Star Trek 12: Something Something.” Why not return to the original numbering and be one big, happy, Trekkie/Trekker family?

–Trekkie since 8 September 1966

69. somethoughts - June 15, 2011

#68 sounds so tiring like a retirement home

70. The Optimist - June 15, 2011

Star Trek II The Wrath of Kahn

Go with just Star Trek 2, like The Godfather II. It’s easy and is mysterious enough to be on it’s own. I never really liked titles that were long worded like “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls”, they needed to work on that one.

71. Phil - June 15, 2011

STAR TREK 12 not 2

72. Buzz Cagney - June 15, 2011

Maybe i’m not in a particularly good mood or something but calling it, even at this early stage, 2 niggles me.
We already have a perfectly brilliant Trek 2.

I wouldn’t want it called 12 either. All associations with the TNG movies need expunging as far as i’m concerned.

Best I can come up with is 2.0 or 2.1 or somesuch. But not 2.

73. somethoughts - June 15, 2011

Star Trek 12 sounds like another TNG flick, just go with ST2

74. somethoughts - June 15, 2011

ST2 Vis Major

75. Kinneas - June 15, 2011

2012 only comes around once.

Star Trek: 2 0 1 2

To be released on: 12/ 21/ 2012


76. KHAN 2.0 - June 15, 2011

sure its been mentioned b4 but how about calling it ‘Star Trek: The Next Frontier’?

a play on ‘The Next Generation’ and ‘Space…The Final Frontier’…like the ‘final frontier’ of Star Trek ‘Prime’ has run its course and this is the next one…plus its got that wild west connotation that i believe bob orci was talking about a while back (maybe due to Cowboys and Aliens?)

obviously ‘The Final Frontier’ or just ‘Final Frontier’ couldnt be used as its been used (and abused)..anyway its sounds like its the final movie (even though it refers to space being the final frontier of man)

and ‘Star Trek’ has GOT to be in the title – even if its just in an ‘Empire Strikes Back/Return of the Jedi’ way…but preferably in the TNG movie way ‘Star Trek: Something’…you cant call it something else Dark Knight style…

77. The 76th Distillation of Blue - June 15, 2011

Just as long as it isnt STAR T2EK or STA2 TREK

78. Robin Raianiemi - June 15, 2011

“Star Trek: Chapter Deux”

79. The 76th Distillation of Blue - June 15, 2011

#76 there are alot of us out here who would disagree with you about The Final Frontier being abused allready.
Star Trek V is actually the closest to the feel of the classic Trek episodes, in terms of the characters and their comraderi and in other ways to..

80. The Optimist - June 15, 2011

ST2 works, simple sales!

81. The 76th Distillation of Blue - June 15, 2011

I actually like Star Trek: Where no one has gone before. or even Just Where No One has gone before.

82. The 76th Distillation of Blue - June 15, 2011

sorry 80, just think there was allready a ST2 and it was a great movie,

83. JohnChicago - June 15, 2011

Write your movie and give it the title it deserves.

84. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - June 15, 2011

Ok. Star Trek. The Orci Files.
Star Trek. Bad Robot.
Star Trek. Orci Fights Back.
Star Trek. Orci Rider.
Star Trek. Orci
Hey. Any of those would work.

85. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - June 15, 2011

Star Trek: As Well.

90. jas_montreal - June 15, 2011

The title’s gotta have ‘Star Trek’ in it, no doubt.

I think ‘Star Trek Begins’ would be cool. Given this is not a bridge film between the two universes (like the last film).

Perhaps ‘Star Trek : Future Begins’

I don’t know…. I don’t even know what the stories about, LOL. Coman bob, give us a hint or something !

98. Jas_montreal - June 15, 2011


And boborci can play Marty mcfly in the sequel.

99. dmduncan - June 15, 2011

You can’t go from Star Trek to Star Trek 12. Out of the question, unless you intentionally want half of the American audience thinking they missed the other 11 sequels that came out since the last movie.

It’s not strictly a fan-chise anymore. And the options are quite limited. The numbering scheme has to be ditched. You give the movies a real movie title with or without Star Trek somewhere in it.

100. "Check the Circuit!" - June 15, 2011

Star Trek 2.0

101. Keachick (rose pinenut) - June 15, 2011

This business about what its title should be is silly, to be honest. I voted Star Trek 2 because that is what will make sense to most people. I suspect that the movie will just get called Star Trek 012 or something like that, just the way the first movie is often referred to as (Star) Trek 09, referring to the year of the movie’s release.

If they do come up with a name as in Star Trek: something something, it will probably happen when the movie is nearing completion, when they see how it is all coming together and what stands out. I think it could be a bit like naming a baby. Expectant parents come up with all sorts of names, but it is often only when the baby is born, that the right name comes to them and gets chosen.

Get the story written. Get the movie filmed. Please – priorities!

106. moauvian waoul- aka: seymour hiney - June 15, 2011

It would be easier if we knew the theme. Bob?

107. KHAN 2.0 - June 15, 2011

maybe ‘Star Trek 2′ would be ok

ok it may get confusing when spoken but when its there on screen/poster/paper etc everyone will know the difference

its not as if Star Trek II was called Star Trek ‘2’…plus it has ‘the Wrath of Khan’ to differentiate it

besides everyones been calling it Star Trek 2 so far (even Paramount)

108. Let Them Eat Plomeek Soup - June 15, 2011

I’m just calling it “the Star Trek sequel” and “ST12″ so I don’t confuse it with TWOK. But don’t call it Star Trek 12–until I came to this site, I had no idea there’d been 12 Trek movies.

Star Trek 2 or 2.0 are good ones.

Star Trek Returns is great.

Star Trek: Where No Man Has Gone Before is alright (yes I said “man”! Do not blame me for being sexist–I am honoring the original dialogue!).

@75 Kinneas:

Let’s hope they release it before then. If you believe in the Mayan calendar, we’ll all have been swallowed up by the earth by that time.

109. KHAN 2.0 - June 15, 2011

also the OS font works well with ‘2’

114. Kelly The Red - June 15, 2011

My friends and I have been referring to it simply as “The Next Star Trek”.

115. etter_spock - June 15, 2011

They should use something that fits some kind of metaphor since that seemed to work for tos episodes or the 6th movie. ex ample: “Star Trek horizons” idk if they have used that one, but if the film has some reference to humanity or represent one of the millions of topics in the 700 episodes with great stories, than use some writing or literature reference. They could maybe do what he’s done with super 8 or cloverfield and make the viewer think about the title until it’s revealed at the end. anyways, i have more expectations for the story. less action more trek! at least something that doesn’t make you say to yourself “It’s a FAKE” lol.

116. Allen Williams - June 15, 2011

Please come up with another name. I didn’t even like Star Trek being the name of Star Trek 2009/Star Trek 11.

117. Valenti - June 15, 2011

Let’s go Evoc.

The titles with Star Trek and numbers in them have come full circle, so now it’s time for something new.

118. 4 8 15 16 23 42 - June 15, 2011

I am in the camp of Star Trek: Something

It should have something to do with the theme of the movie, not the stock phrases associated with ST, like “to boldly go”, etc.

I can’t suggest an actual title, because I don’t know what it’s about yet.

But in the humor department, I can suggest:

Star Trek: The Solace of Quantum (Mechanics)

119. somethoughts - June 15, 2011

Star Trek Next

120. Markus McLaughlin - June 15, 2011

I sure hope Dark Knight Rises WONT be competing against Star Trek 12, that would suck, because I want to see BOTH films badly!!!

Star Trek : Chaos Ensues

That’s my Title and I’m sticking to it! :D


121. VZX - June 15, 2011

It’s so easy to come up with a jokey title like Star Trekkin or something, but I have wondered about this for the past five years or so, ever since I heard that the 2009 film was to be called simply Star Trek: What do you call the next one?

As perfect as the title STAR TREK was, I think they should have gone with something else just to set-up the next one and not get into this predicament.

I voted for the no STAR TREK title, like The Dark Knight without Batman in the title or the James Bonds films. (BTW: Does it bother anyone else that on the DVD for Raiders of the Lost Ark they put “Indianna Jones and the” in front of it? Stupid marketing)

How about:

I’m thinking “Where No One Has Gone Before” preferably without the actual name Star Trek (although that might evoke memories of the first two seasons of “Enterprise” sans Star Trek).

STAR TREK: TO BOLDLY GO – there’s your perfect “2” title right there!

130. grover s - June 15, 2011


(if it fits the plot… we should have had this kind of a story in a trek film by now, but haven’t really…)

@124 — Nice ones! Mine won’t be as good as yours, but…

The Romulan Candidate

Driving Miss Uhura

The Green Parsec

Das Raumboot

okay, now even I’m starting to groan….

132. DonDonP1 - June 15, 2011

Should have been ‘Star Trek XII’ or ‘Star Trek 12′, for there already was a ‘Star Trek II’. I have a few ideas for a new title: ‘Another Star Trek’. Either that or ‘Star Trek: Enterprising New Horizons’.

133. Pah Wraith - June 16, 2011

khem… Star Trek Phase II khem…

134. Adam - June 16, 2011

If they were contemplating not having Star Trek in the title, the only options with enough of an instant Trek resonance would be “Final Frontier” or “Where No Man Has Gone Before”

135. Chris J - June 16, 2011


“It worked for James Cameron, it can work for you:


Love it! :D

I would have to agree that ‘Where No-One Has Gone Before’ or ‘To Boldly Go’ would be enough to tell movie-goers that it is a Star Trek film. If the trailer has Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise, the title won’t matter all that much anyway. Although I think adding ‘Star Trek’ before any of those two would be nice anyway.

136. StelArian - June 16, 2011

Why not just Star Trek again? Everyone call the last one Star Trek 09. They will call this Star Trek (20)12 (works also as 12th movie!)

137. Victor Hugo - June 16, 2011

It could be called…GALAXY QUEST!

138. Mark Lynch - June 16, 2011

Actually there has never been a “Star Trek 2″

It was…

Star Trek II
The wrath of Khan

So why not “Star Trek 2″

Only us old timers will know… :)

139. Mark Lynch - June 16, 2011

How about:

Star Trek: The search for another brewery to act as part of the ship

Too long?

140. Woulfe - June 16, 2011

Title – Star Trek 2 : Electric Boogaloo
Tagline – This time with so much disco goodness then you can endure !
Plot – The crew of the Enterprise discovers that the ship has a roller disco on board
Music to include – ABBA, Bee Gees, Village People, Ect

Disco isn’t dead folks, it just went into hibernation and is more popular now then it ever was back in the day


141. KHAN 2.0 - June 16, 2011

maybe they’ll give it an TOS style title – e.g. something that could quite easily have been an OS ep title (like is whats happened with MI4: Ghost Protocol) like what they sort of did with the OS movies (not so much with the TNG movies)

Star Trek: The Something of the Something

i wouldnt want to see some Trekian phrase like ‘To Boldly Go’ or ‘WNOHGB’ or ‘Prime Directive’ or ‘Final Frontier’ etc with no ‘Star Trek’ like Dark Knight or even Empire Strikes Back(with ‘StarTrek’ relegated to an almost subtitle)- people need to know this is a STAR TREK film and STAR TREK needs to be there first and foremost

plus im not fussed on any silly stuff like ‘Star Trek Reloaded’ or ‘Star Trek Returns’

im more in favour of plain old Star Trek 2 at the moment (like Spiderman 2 or Lethal Weapon 2 or Die Hard 2 etc)

142. KHAN 2.0 - June 16, 2011

104 they *might* get away with calling it ‘Final Frontier’ (without ‘The’) but then would they want to draw any comparisons to Star Trek V? I think not!

kind of tempting fate

143. KHAN 2.0 - June 16, 2011

@138 – i agree

The new Thing film is to be called ‘The Thing’ (like the 1982 film) but the argument there is the official title of the 82 movie on all the posters etc was ‘John Carpenters The Thing’ (plus it kind of makes sense to have the same title in that it deals with replication etc) so it could be a similar thing with Trek 2 – the 1982 film was officially called ‘Star Trek ‘II’ – The Wrath of Khan’ which leaves ‘Star Trek 2′ ok to use

besides a sizable chunck of the hip happening audience/AverageJoe going to see the movie arent really going to know/be that bothered there was another movie 30 years ago called ‘star trek two’ too

144. KHAN 2.0 - June 16, 2011

79 – id actually like to see the underdog of the films getting a nod in the sequel (like the way the underdog of ttv Trek got a direct reference in ST09)

have Sybok cameo or mentioned like Archer tee hee

145. Mark Lynch - June 16, 2011

@138 – Exactly…

More of my title ideas

Star Trek: Upgraded
Star Trek: Replaced
Star Trek: Updated
Star Trek: The second film
Star Trek: I’ll be back (apologies to Terminator franchise)
Star Trek: The Uncharted Territories (apologies to Farscape)

Sorry, I find it easier to think of silly titles than real ones… :)

146. Captain Ransom - June 16, 2011

all i know is that calling it star trek 2 is an insult to the wrath of khan which i know is vastly superior to anything that abrams will come up with.

147. dmduncan - June 16, 2011

You know what? People don’t even remember a time in recent history when smartphones weren’t available and going online was something you did once in a while.

Call it Star Trek 2. Who’s gonna know but a few fans who’ll lie at Trekmovie about not seeing it because it was called Star Trek 2?

148. IlSisko - June 16, 2011

How about “Star Trek : Observer Effect”? ^_^

#116 – “Please come up with another name. I didn’t even like Star Trek being the name of Star Trek 2009/Star Trek 11.”

If you look at the movie title, it just says Star Trek. People/audience/fans, not the makers, have referred to this movie Star Trek (20)09 or 11 to differentiate it from the other Star Trek movies. That is why it just makes sense to call the next movie Star Trek 2 or Star Trek 012, as that is what it will be called by people anyway, unless, of course, the writers/producers come up with a concise but meaningful title, that differentiates itself from previous movies.

As I said, if they don’t have a title in mind already, it will come to them as the movie goes under proper production, or it won’t. If not, then Star Trek 2 or 12 or(2)012 should be what it is called and people could give it their own title, depending on what aspect of the movie grips them the most or not…

Have not the naysayers of the last movie called it something like “Star Trek: The One That Sucked”? If not, why not? Slow now, aren’t we? For me, it’s sometimes been, Star Trek: Wow, My (CP) Captain! OK, telling too much…

152. k4karnage - June 16, 2011

Don’t change it at all. Star Trek: Something Something sounds good already. :P

155. Forrest_Leeson - June 18, 2011

Yes! In keeping with Paramount’s *other* franchise pattern–


(I see the Steven Moffat-scripted TINTIN poster up there. One reason people like Moffat’s DOCTOR WHO is that he’s not afraid to repurpose good ideas from the DW novels. Auntie Beeb owns all the rights for a reason. Like Paramount owns all the rights to the ST novels. *SUBLIMINAL: HORTAS IN STARFLEET* *SUBLIMINAL: BATTLECRUISER VENGEANCE* *SUBLIMINAL: DREADNOUGHT* *SUBLIMINAL: INFLATABLE STARSHIPS*)

Why don’t they call it STAR TREK: THE NEXT PHASE? I think that sound cool.
