Inside Star Trek XI – What’s a USS Kelvin? October 16, 2008

EW has an inside scoop on Star XI this month. Lots of pics and some interesting insight into J J Abrams maddness of a remake. He also gave away the plot in the interview


The EW interview confirms that the movie will be a time travel film. The USS Kelvin is attacked by the Eric Bana character Nero which sets off a series events that shakes up time. Along the way the film goes into the origins of the classic Enterprise crew with a key focus on James Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto).

Time travel is great but how many time travel Star Trek movies do we need? Star Trek IV was time travel (to save the whales). Star Trek First Contact was time travel too….wouldn’t it have been more fun to have a mirror universe movie??

By going the time travel route – Abrams is showing his lack on imagination. There are so many other great things that SciFi can do from a plot point of view – time travel is a dated and far too well worn plot tool.

Buy tickets to Star Trek now!

I’m excited.

Star Trek has some of the best thought out time travel stories.

Other franchises don’t worry as much about messing up the timeline.
Star Trek does.

Time travel is the perfect way to reboot the Star Trek franchise. After changing history they will no longer by bound by 40 years of canon.
