Star Trek is Back with Abrams at the Helm

by | April 21, 2006 | Comments

Wow, now here’s some news we didn’t see coming. J.J. Abrams, the creator of "Alias" and "Lost," as well as the director of "Mission Impossible 3," will be resurrecting the "Star Trek" franchise for Paramount Pictures. And he’s bringing his "MI3" writers with him.

According to Variety, "Paramount is breathing life into its "Star Trek" franchise by setting "Mission: Impossible III" helmer J.J. Abrams to produce and direct the 11th "Trek" feature, aiming for a 2008 release.


2002’s "Star Trek: Nemesis"

Project, to be penned by Abrams and "MI3" scribes Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, will center on the early days of seminal "Trek" characters James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock, including their first meeting at Starfleet Academy and first outer space mission."

All I wanna know is if there’ll be borgs, klingons, and tribbles.
