My only real hope for TREK XII  is that JJ doesn't direct it.


My only real hope is that he avoids lens flares if he does.  He seemed to make everyone happy on the set and pleasant from the accounts there, so I'm sure there is high hope for him to return as director within the studio and behind the scenes.  I think he does know to tone the lens flares down just a tad bit though.  He even poked fun of the fact in an interview on AintItCool.

Looks like the new film could possibly begin shooting as early as March...

So, we may be hearing a lot of Trek 12 news a lot earlier than we think!

That center-of-the-galaxy thing sounds like STV.

While I'm SURE this will not be an adventure going to the center of the galaxy, I'd be pretty cheesed off if it was just because the sheer distance makes it impossible, even at the speed of light.

I heard from a reliable source that the new movies plot will center around the klingons capturing the enterprise crew and replacing them with the queer-eye for the straight guy cast with a couple sex in the city actresses for the female crew....they then use them to infiltrate starfleet for reconnaissance (before they invade) since they are such a perfect match and no one can tell the difference....futhermore the crew is in a race against time itself as jj abrahms is at the center of the universe getting an atomic wedgey from none other than the most malevolent being in the universe and jj's archenemy Jar Jar Binks!!!!....will the crew free themselves in time to save their creator before his underwear strap is pulled over his forehead OR will be left floating in space to suffer the ultimate ridicule for all eternity!!!!!!

There is another site that talks about the sequel and its commingsoon.net. I go there all the time and has list of movies that is soon to be up comming movies to theaters, and movies that is in the making. And also has list of soon to becoming movies to be released to dvd. And most of the time, it has been acurate. If you go there and look up Star Trek, it will have articles about the movie thats already out, but also has articles regarding the soon to be sequel. I have to go back there and get the link. And when I do, I'll try to post it here. And also there is another site that talks about the sequel, its a Star Trek site, it also talks about the sequel as well.

Sounds like a rehash of TFF...  Not the best movie to copy off of.

And luckily they aren't since Orci just revealed they've had a single meeting and are throwing ideas against the wall making that IMDB thing even more bogus!

I think he had also said that O & K gave him an education as far as TREK goes.

Yet I do see your point! :p lol

I believe it was probably Orci who had some kind of conversation with Abrams concerning Abrams persistant ridicule of previous Trek and existing fans. Abrams slipped on his own crap at that February 26, 2009 convention when he began praising the fans. Yet, only two days later, he was back at it.

Now that STXI has made him and Paramount another fortune, Abrams will say anything to keep the ball rolling. I also believe most of the multiple ticket buyers were previous Trek fans and they know this if they've paid any attention to the various boards on the NET. Abrams has been a flim-flam man all along and I don't see any reason for him to stop or for me to believe a word out of his mouth.

As for STXII or any Trek production involving BAD ROBOT, I expect more of the same. The only change may be less lens flares. Abrams has commented on that brilliance :sarcastic: probably because of someone else he may have a minute amount of respect for saying something about it...

I remember reading an article somewhere on the net about that 'JJ flimflam' as you so aptly put it.

The gist was that it was a conscious marketing decision to stir up the rank and file (all buzz is good buzz) -get some controversy going; while at the same time work the "It's not your dad's ST" angle from a "I'm not a TREK fan & I'm the director' vantage point.

The other main point of the article was that all the premieres in all the capitals around the world were an attempt to bolster Trek's international sales.

Percentage wise, that part didn't fare so well. Although one has to admit, the first part worked like a charm.
