Star Trek "sequel" already has writers

Star TrekArguably the twelfth movie in the franchise (or the second movie in the rebooted franchise), Paramount and J.J. Abrams are showing a lot of faith by already hiring the writers for the Star Trek "sequel". These scribes are frequent co-conspirators of Abrams: Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof.

Orci and Kurtzman wrote the upcoming "first" movie (and are also responsible for the first Transformers movie, although the bulk of the blame for that should go to Michael Bay). Lindelof is a co-creator of Lost. Abrams is "staying within the family", as it were.

(And since the franchise is being rebooted from scratch and all the rules can now be broken, can we have Kirk fight the Borg? I've always wanted to see that.)

I know that advanced planning like this is normal in Hollywood, but In the event the movie bombs (not bloody likely, admittedly), they're going to have eggs on their collective faces for their presumptuousness.

Reboot or not.... you can not have Kirk fight the Borg.

The movie going audience would never accept such an abomination.

There was a Klingon sub-plot to the first movie that was completely cut out. So that CGI and everything will most likely be used in the sequel which will make it cheaper.

And how much did this movie cost to make?

And I want a Titan movie, and a movie that goes back in time and has the Voyager destroyed instead of being sent to the Delta Quad.

Why can't the Star Trek franchise move forward? As a body of work, the entire Star Trek franchise is not broken. There may be minor flaws here and there, but in general it is a sound canon. Add to it, don't try to fiddle too much with it.

Shouldn't they wait to see if this movie is a success first? Let's face it, with the performance of the last couple of movies, that's far from sure thing.

I really hope it takes off and rejuvenates the franchise.
