The web is abuzz with the news that Alias, Lost and M:I:3 mastermind will co-write, produce, and direct a new Star Trek feature film.
This feature will be a prequel to the original series, where Kirk, Spock, and McCoy meet up during their formative years at Starfleet Academy. If the script is anything like a treatment Ain’t It Cool got hold of, it’s gonna be bloody fantastic. It’s a LONG, LONG read but well worth it for Trek fans.
If Abrams can sprinkle his magic on the franchise, we might get some good Trek after years of blunders. Maybe the franchise can rise from the ashes of the craptastic Nemesis and uber-boring Enterprise series. I didn’t think it was possible, but with Abrams on board I think it’s possible.
Energize and Engage.
