No word on the Kobayashi Maru just yet, but Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have popped up to discuss the film's script, the pressure behind the franchise, and just what time period we can expect the story to take place in.

Script Talks for Star Trek XI

The NY Times, reposted at Joblo, have caught up with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci to discuss the Star Trek XI script. As it turns out, we had the poster to the right long before any pens hit paper.

Compared to “Transformers” “Star Trek” is a miles-long minefield of established chronology, laid down over four decades, one that Mr. Orci and Mr. Kurtzman must be careful not to tamper with or contradict. But they say that by focusing their film (already scheduled for a Christmas 2008 release) on the earliest adventures of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock, they can avoid most of these perils.

“What was a little daunting,” Mr. Kurtzman said, “was while we were writing it, they sent over a poster with the release date on it. We hadn’t written ‘fade in’ yet.” Mr. Orci added: “We’ve never had a movie poster before we’ve had a script. That’s pressure.”

Even with the stress, having Kurtzman, Orci and Abrams working together on any project is always a treat.

If all goes to plan, Star Trek XI will open to theaters in 2008.

Stay tuned for updates.
