With Paramount having targeted the date of June 29, 2012 for the premiere of their Star Trek sequel, it went without question that director J.J. Abrams was planning to begin production shortly. But we now have that shoot window down to the month thanks to Captain Pike. When asked the question by Hollywood.com, co-star Bruce Greenwood revealed that production is slated to begin in January 2011.

It also seems that Bruce returning isn't a sure deal yet as he stated his hopes to have a role in the next space adventure. The rest of the Enterprise crew are already locked in. That includes Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin and Zoe Saldana. Abrams will be directing from a script by returning writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

Sound off below, Maniacs.

I think it would be cool if they brought back Bruce Greenwood, Admiral Pike can give Kirk his marching orders.

Although Bruce makes an awesome bad guy, I thought it was cool he finally got to play someone you can root for. I hope he returns in some capacity. As a longtime bored Trekker, I loved this movie and how it really erased most of the Star Trek Cannon.

I just hope they figure a better story this time.  All the elements were right, overall story sucked.

I see the Star Trek Special Olympics edition is back. All praise to Jar Jar Abrams, his lobotomized vision, and the overly planned and calculated images in motion of "stuff just happens and things blow up" ideology.

gutsmgee, you loved how the movie erased most of the Star Trek cannon?  Are you crazy?  If you are going to erase the cannon why do Star Trek at all?  Just do your own movie with your own characters who have no history.  Then you can do anything you want with them without erasing the cherished history of well loved characters.

Please, I'm not going to get into an argument with oldie Trek fans but Abrams did a great job with rebooting the series that was dying a slow and painful death. You guys still have all the old movies and tons of dvds of the series to watch. Its time Star Trek moved on a bit.

Gutsmgee - I am right with you about being bored by trek, it needed a change, they hadn't made a good movie in a decade, Voyager was just boring (how do you make the Borg boring?), Enterprise was an interesting idea but flawed in so many ways. I can be a bit of a Star Trek apologist at times I do like all the movies, yes even 5 and Insurection, but the numbers don't lie and the reboot made a sh!t ton of money, more than any previous movie in the franchise. They must have done something right. I am stoked for a sequel bring it on.

Ponyboy gets it. My favorite part was that he used a time twist to destroy the established cannon. Star Trek had a problem in it's old age. An addiction. It was what I call the "Time-Twisty Crutch". It wasn't called Time Trek, It's called Star Trek. Under the Berman/Braga Regime, Star Trek Flourished and was fantastic for a time then became multipled, over exposed, and was finally taken over by poor, lazy writing. Written ourselves into a corner?!?!!? No problem! Time-Twsty Crutch to the rescue! Don't get me wrong. I love Trek, and those stories and characters will live on...In their universe. I think it's awesome for it to exist in a parallel universe, I mean that's the Most Star Trek thing you could do for Heaven's sake. This will also allow for new paradoxes, which are completely "Star Trek". We also get the opportunity to see several often fantsized about "What-If" scenarios. We already know how a Kirk Vs. Kahn Fight would go down, so How would a Khan/Kirk Alliance work out against some other race that was previously an ally? I think it opens up several opprtunities that previous "Treks" either passed on, or were too hard to do in a techinical sense. Yes, things blow up....Finally. I think you also missed a major part of the movie, where, even though things are different...They are still bound together by destiny. They have the same roles, in the same way. Kirk's still the Captain, still a smooth adventurer, with a quick witt, still bangs the green chick. No, It's not the same. Neither was STTNG the same as TOS. This is just the next evolution, just as much as the cartoon, or crappy Star Trek V. The studio was never going to let you have another Star Trek anything as you knew it for another decade, and honestly, do you think it would have been the same by then? No, It's time to let the Trek you knew go. I know I sound like an idiot most of the time, and I don't really care about much to be honest, but I love J.J.'s Star Trek, and my Star Trek hating fiance loves it too. Live in the Moment, enjoy it for what it is, because, without a Time-twisty Crutch, you can't go home again.....With or without a cargo bay full of Whales.

Who the hell cares. New Trek, Old Trek... It's just no longer fun, engaging, or interesting. Abrams is no-talent hack. Who better to preside over the demise Trek than a man with no talent other than creating buzz for an inferior product. 

gutsmgee 7/20/2010 6:34:53 AM

Yeah well, Everything sucks, when everything sucks. What else can you do to pay back your enemies but punish yourself by never seeing new things, and never accepting new ideas? That's my motto......;)
