New "Trek" Writers to Tread Carefully

by | June 9, 2006 | Comments

By now you’ve already heard that "MI3" director J.J. Abrams will be producing and/or directing a new installment in Paramount’s "Star Trek" franchise, and he’ll be bringing his writing team of Kurtzman & Orci with him. And it seems like the scribe team has its head on straight regarding old-school "Trek" lore and how to be true to the series.

From IGN FilmForce: "We know the mythology well, and we are fans of the novels that happen between the movies and all that kind of stuff … and we do know that there is a space [sic] to begin to see a lot of the origins of a lot of the things we know and we’re going to start there. We’re very mindful of being totally true to the mythology and totally true to what’s come there, and in a way try to embrace the fact there’s such a rich history to it that this is not a case of trying to come in and be so clever that you’re going to reinvent everything. It’s a case of coming in and using the stuff you know is great and you know really works and not violating anything that’s come before it."
