"Star Trek XI" Prequel Full of Easter Eggs for Fans

by | July 2, 2007 | Comments

Prequels have been doing well lately, not just for Hollywood, but for fans. Bond freaks loved seeing Agent 007 discover a tux and a martini in "Casino Royale," and batheads loved Bruce Wayne’s time in third world prisons in "Batman Begins." The new "Star Trek" prequel, being written by screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, promises to deliver just as many juicy tidbits to Trekkies.

"It’s pretty comprehensive," said Orci. "If you’re a fan, you’re going to see one kind of movie and if you have never seen it, you’re going to be introduced to it in a different kind of a way. That’s the goal."

Since there were several "Star Trek" spinoffs and movie series, there are plenty of things to look for. Of course Orci could only be vague. "Because we’re all starting from the same point, they get to do a lot more predicting about what it’s going to be. In a way, it becomes interactive in that we all get to be on the lot, I guess, going off of that show that just came on."

"Everyone gets to sort of test their ideas against what they would do relative to what’s actually going to be done in the movie, he continued. "I think that’s why fans get so involved and why you get as much criticism as you do but also it’s a double edged sword."

"Star Trek XI" is slated for a Christmas 2008 release.
