BUNKERBUSTER - BOB ORCI BEGINS TO SPILL BEANS

In a new webcast podterview, Star Trek 3 director Roberto Orci gave hints about what to expect in the motion film.

The topics included where the adventure will take place, and what aliens might be seen.

Fans should expect Kirk and crew to do more exploring in deep space this time around. “In [Into Darkness] they set out finally where the original series started,” said Orci. “The first two films – especially the 2009 [Star Trek] – was an origin story. It was about them coming together. So they weren’t the characters they were in the original series. They were growing into them and that continues on in the second movie. So in this movie they are closer than they are to the original series characters than you have ever seen. They have set off on their five-year mission. So their adventure is going to be in deep space.”

Fans should expect new aliens in Star Trek 3. “We have discussed [the challenges of creature design],” said Orci. “The advantage we have is there is new technology available. Even though I am a fan and I know J.J. is a fan of as much practical sets and creature design you can do, we can also augment it with the technology that exists today, CGI. So in a way we have a freedom that is a little bit unexplored. I hope to do that in the next Star Trek.”

What about revisiting the Romulans and Klingons? “Because this is an alternative universe I think we can choose,” said Orci. “I don’t feel the pressure to revisit anyone or not. We are lucky that way, but we have the ability to cherry pick what has come before. It will depend on what serves the story best.’

Les Whitt at What Frakking Culture is counting down the 19 most cringeworthy moments from the Abramsverse

19. Young Krik’s Car Heist

Kirk, old friend, have you ever heard the old Klingon proverb that tells us “Revenge is a dish best served by stealing your stepfather’s antique car and blaring annoying music annoyingly?” No? Nor have we – because it doesn’t exist, and for a good reason.

OK, we get it; the writers and director needed a shorthand way to show us that Kirk has been trouble since he was a wee turd. That’s not the problem. The problem is the creche of silly elements that make up this scene. The car theft itself is fine, but discovering that Nokia has somehow survived the post-atomic horror of the twentieth century and still uses that irksome ringtone that most people gave up with their flip phones… oh, wait, they have flip phones in Kirk’s time, too. Dammit!

Then there’s the obligatory Greg Grunberg cameo as Kirk’s stepdad… Sorry, we love Grunberg in other Abrams projects, but a little of him goes a long way. Just ask that monster in the first episode of Lost – it probably made Grunberg last at least until nightfall.

Then there’s Sabotage by the Beastie Boys… As we find out in the second movie, the most popular music to survive the post-atomic horror was white ’90s rap. Lucky future people!

We can even handle Kirk driving the car over the cliff. But while being pursued by Robocop? It’s less embarrassing to watch Kirk get his ass served to him while trying to hit on Uhura. In fact, just skip to that scene.

17. Kobayashi Maru Training Scenario Revisited



It has been noted on many occasions that nothing about a character says “I’m a dick!” faster than having them eat an apple at an inappropriate moment.

15. The Enterprise Brewery

As with the lens flare, the cringes induced by views of the Los Angeles Budweiser Brewery posing as the Enterprise’s Engineering section are more an ongoing irritation than one big one. Without even being told that’s the setting, most people watching this movie will look at it and say “That’s the interior of a starship?” in a way that completely takes them out of the movie. For one thing, isn’t it just a little too damn big for Engineering? For another, what are all those big vats for, anyway? Dilithium hops?

If the two movies didn’t spend so much time there, it would be easier to forget, but we seem to be down there all the time – and nothing is more jarring than shots that switch from the Apple Store that is now the new Bridge to the brewery that is now Engineering. What’s Uhura doing down there under a big ol’ tank, we’ve no idea – maybe working in Communications is so stressful you need to be near a beer tap to get through a shift?

BOMBSHELL - There’s A Part For William Shatner In STAR TREK XIII (or as the media is calling it, "Star Trek 3" - confusing since there's already been one of those w/ Merritt Butricks & Christopher Lloyd & John Larroquette, snerk)

But will Shat do the cameo?

Leonard Nimoy has ended up being integerl to the Star Trek alternative reboot flims, but Bill Shatner hasn't come near them yet. There was a cameo written into the first film for him, but it was dropped before shooting, and there was no place for him in The Star Trek Into Dark. Shatner himself has been vocal about wanting to appear in one of these movies, and it seems like with professed Trekker Bob Orci captaining Star Trek XIII he may be getting his chance.

I have learned that the script for Star Trek XIII includes a scene that reteams Shatner and Nimoy onscreen as Kirk and Spock for the first time in canon since 1991's Star Terk VI: The Undiscovered Country. It would be a pretty huge moment for fans of the franchise, and likely the last time we'll ever see Shatner as James T. Kirk in official continuity.

Will it happen? The movie is still a ways out from shooting, but unlike the cameo intended for 2009's Star Trek, this appearance is plot-driven and integral enough that it might just survive any future revisions. And if it does, will Shatner - who can be tricky and prickly - agree to the appearance?

UPDATE - Shatner has been approached regarding a part in Star Trek XIII (aka ST3).

Several days ago, Bill had dismissed the rumor that he might appear in STXIII as "rhetoric to cause hype."

But while at Wizard World this weekend, Shat admitted that Producer J.J. Abram had been in touch with him and that Shat would be "dee-lighted" to make an appearance, provided the part was "meaningful."

But he has no idea how they would get him into the movie legitimately. "How do you get me fifty years later into the movie?" he asked. "I know it’s science fiction, but even I couldn’t come up with an idea."

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE - Star Trek XIII will be a "Seoul Survivor"

Star Trek XIII (aka ST3) will have some of its scenes shot in Seoul, South Korea, according to Seoul Mayor Park Too-soon,

“Today I met with Mister Jeffrey Chernov, producer of The Star Trek Three, at the Hollywood Paramount Pictures Studio and agreed to letting film a portion of the upcoming movie in Seoul,” he said via Korean Facebook.

Isn’t the only movie that has filmed in Seoul recently. The forthcoming sci-fi drama series Oblivion Sense 8 - ERV is filming around Cheonggyecheon, a live stream that runs through downtown Seoul. Avengers Episode II, which will release next year, was also filmed partly in Seoul City.

Bored Rick Berman starts taking tweet shots at Bad Robot Productions


@berman_rick
Is it sacrilegious that I'm more excited about Larry Kasdan's upcoming Star Wars film than the next Star Trek movie?
5:22 PM - 20 Oct 2014

@berman_rick
No one wants the next Star Trek movie to work more than I do. I just hope it's a little closer to the movie we all want it to be.

yeh, sometimes I wonder if Passive-Aggressive Showbiz Isaacs know how obvious they are.  And if so, then why not just drop the flimsy pretenses and bare the fangs?  I mean, Berman calling the new Star Wars "Larry Kasdan's" when obviously it's JJ Abrams' show.

Great news, gang. BBC America network will be hosting the Season 2 broadcast premiere of the new tastefully enhanced high definition incarnation of ST : The Next Generation.

Tuesday, November 11th, the first four episodes will debut:

The Child
Dr. Katherine Pulaski (Diana Muldaur) joins the Enterprise while Lt. Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton) prepares the Enterprise to transport dangerous plague specimens; Counsellor Deanna Troi spontaneously becomes pregnant and gives birth to a mucho mysterioso child.

Where Silence Has Lease
The Enterprise becomes trapped in a spatial phenomenon. Here they are subjected to unusual experiments by the whim of a being unlike any they have encountered before.

Elementary, Dear Data
After Lt Cmdr. Data easily solves an ordinary Sherlock Holmes holodeck mystery, La Forge asks the computer to make a Holmes villain capable of defeating him. The resultant Professor Moriarty soon becomes far more powerful than expected.

The Outrageous Okona
The Enterprise is caught up in the schemes of a flamboyant Han Solo-esque space rogue on the run, while Data explores humor with the help of a holodeck comedian (Joe Piscopo).

HA HA YES, you know I saw the sales of Next Generation on blu-RaY got off to a cracking start and then declined precipitously ... maybe they should have put a sticker on the packaged sets saying "you probably can skip the first two seasons"

wel as i was saying, i remembered WHEN SILENCE IS LEASED to be a passable, if unremarkable Trekisode.  But, since Spivak has proven that THE SENSES ARE KNOWN DECEIVERS ...  was I wrong?  After experiencing Season 2 vomit cakes known as THE CHILD and THE OUTRAGEOUS OKONA ... i decided to take another look at WHAT SILENCE HAS LEASE :
