Star Trek sequel in 2012?

Star TrekIt was announced that the sequel to the recent Star Trek movie is going to be released on May 29th, 2012. This means we'll be able to catch the next Star Trek movie before the world ends, according to the Mayans.

Of course, a sequel was inevitable due to the fact that Star Trek was pretty much the biggest (and in my opinion the best) movie of this past summer. Paramount likely signed all the actors involved to multiple-movie contracts, so getting them back isn't an issue.

So J.J. Abrams and company have just over two years to put the sequel together. It seems like enough time, but politics can play strange games with movie schedules (look at Spider-man 4).

There was also a rumor that the sequel would be based on one of the episodes of the classic television series. If that was the case, which character(s) should come back? Harry Mudd? Tribbles? The Guardian of Forever? KHHHAAAAANNNNN?

I wouldnt mind seeing a new Star Trek TV series. A new flavour of the old series. New characters, Aliens, Planets, and of course, the mandatory 'Travel in Time' that all Star Trek series have. A new (series if it is aired) would have a large new Fandom and writers will be begging to write new scripts for the show. With modern technology, the planets surface will look much better than in the original series. Star Trek seems like it will live forever, and hopefully, it will.

Why go back to the television series? Sure, Khan remains one of Star Trek's more interesting villains -- more for the movie rather than the episode, "Space Seed" -- by why not take the opportunity do something new and original. Or, if they feel the need to go back to the series, why not the Mirror Universe? That would make for a more interesting movie than a Khan reworking.

With such a solid story basis for more movies and set at an age at least 10 years before the time of the original series,throw in some timeline changes and you have a multiple movie run with possible tv afterwards.Even the Mayans can't stop that.

The original article on Ain't It Cool said May 29th. I wrote the date based on that and stand by it.

how about let Abrams be creative and take his universe where the original has not touched? isn't the reason for a "reboot" to let the new creative team do new, cool things that the previous technology could not?
