It's about time we got details on the sequel to J.J. Abrams' Star Trek, or "Star Trek: The Star Trek" as Red Letter Media put it, beyond the standard "Oh we're still working on the story" non-answer we've heard for years.
Unlike Christopher Nolan's camp, who intentionally send out fake spoilers to throw people off such as that bullshit about Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Dark Knight Rises role you may have read last week, such tactics aren't employed by Team J.J. Probably because they’re more afraid of him shoving any leakers into that damn "mystery box" of his and throwing away the keys.
Trek Movie has good tidbits on where things are at. January 15th is the start-date on as the as-yet-titled follow-up, sets from the 2009 reboot are being re-used (Cost effective!), ILM is already underway on effects shots and writers Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof are on draft #3. Hawaii is being looked at for a possible filming location subbing for a "jungle planet" and a local Los Angeles museum will, most definitely, be used for a "famous Star Trek location."
From what we've heard the Klingons play a prominent role in Star Trek 2. The angle, according to our sources, plays up them up as a Nomadic sect of warrior aliens causing trouble for the Federation - think an intergalactic Taliban with their home-planet overrun by Tribbles. Yes, those Tribbles, here in the newly rebooted continuity viewed as "furry carnivorous creatures."
Oh, and no Khan. Thank God.
