With J.J. Abramâ€™s reboot of â€œStar Trek,â€ there are countless storylines that one could develop for the Star Trek sequel in this new timeline.
The Hollywood Reporter interviewed â€œStar Trek 2â€ writer Alex Kurtzman during a â€œPeople Like Usâ€ event to dish out some hint (or any hint) on the upcoming sequel plot.
And Kurtzman provided a slight description on what we can expect for Captain Kirk and company in â€œStar Trek 2.â€
â€œâ€¦I can say the assumption that we did not want to make was that just because heâ€™s in the chair and theyâ€™re on the bridge together that theyâ€™re the crew that you remember from the original series. Theyâ€™re not — the crew from the original series had gone on many, many journeys, they were a well-oiled machine in terms of how they function, and these characters are still figuring out who they are and who they are to each other. And I did not want to jump so far ahead that we missed a really important emotional connection to that transition for them.â€
And, there will be more challenges for Kirk to develop himself to be the captain of the Enterprise.
â€œJim Kirk, for example, inherits the Enterprise at the end of Star Trek but that doesnâ€™t mean he fully understands what it means to be Captain. It just means, oh, he has the Enterprise now — so now what? Heâ€™s never sent men and women to their deaths before, so whatâ€™s going to happen when that kind of question comes up for him? I guess I normally look at it from a place of pure character.â€
So thereâ€™s still a lot to learn for the crew of the Enterprise. No doubt the adversary in â€œStar Trek 2â€ will put them to a test.
â€œStar Trek 2â€ will be in theaters on May 17 next year.
