To Boldly Wait Another Year

If we can generate prequels, reboots and alternate time-lines, then surely we can celebrate an anniversary a year before the event actually occurs?

On June 29, 2012 Paramount will, we hope, maybe, in a parallel universe, release the as yet un-named, un-acted, un-edited, sequel in the rebooted Star Trek franchise. Now that Super 8 is officially up and running, the world of Trek fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief. But will JJ Abrams turn his attentions to the Star Trek sequel, now that his own fan fiction is out of his hands and at the mercy of the consumer? This is the question in every Trek heart, as the director has not yet fully shown commitment to the next movie. We know that the big names have signed up, and many of them have hinted at a fall filming schedule, but hints and hearsay are pretty much all we have right now.

In the gaming world we continue to look forward to a cooperative based on the alternate universe. To be released in 2012 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, action will take place between the two movies. The game debuted at E3 in May and was well received by Trekkies and non-Trekkies alike, for content and game play.

Trek fans delight this year that Walter Koenig, aka Pavel Chekhov, will finally receive his star on the Hollywood walk of fame this year. Along with him, other notable geek recipients are Malcolm McDowell and Adam West

All I know is, should the Alamo Drafthouse in Texas decide to screen ANY of the Star Trek movies next year, I will be sorely tempted to fly down. In 2009, audiences that went to see a re-run of Star Trek II The Wrath of Kahn, only got to see two minutes of that movie, before Leonard Nimoy stepped into the room and asked if they wouldn’t prefer to see the new movie – three hours before the premiere!

  1. This hardcore Trekkie mom would seriously take delight in JJ Abrams NEVER touching the franchise again. I hated the reboot, and I hate very little in this world.

    1. It took me a long time to come around to the reboot, I like it now but I still wince at a couple of the moments that are just plain wrong.

      1. I take ST far too seriously to have it dashed apart like in the reboot. I mean, FFS…R2D2 floating in the space debris?! WTF.
        There’s a difference between the campy, silliness of TOS or the early movies and completely pissing on everything that ST is. :/

        1. Sorry I’m ranty. My husband and I got kicked out my local ST group over this too…the day before I went into labor with my daughter no less! lol
