STAR TREK 3 Will Finally Go Where No One Has Gone Before
Before he took off to go handle that other sci-fi space property, JJ Abrams revived one of the most popular and iconic franchises in film and television history in Star Trek. The 2009 film took viewers back to the very beginning, where we saw the creation f the famed Enterprise crew. Star Trek, and its Cumberbatch infested sequel, brought this franchise to a whole new generation, all the while please fans of the original films and series. A task not easily done. But, there was one little thing missing.
One of the most iconic pieces of this franchise is the opening sequence, where the captain, whether it be Kirk or Piccard, lays out the mission of the star shop, which states that they will go where no one (man, if you’re a purist) has gone before. Well, Trekkies, it looks as though the crew will finally be heading into deep space, according to Roberto Orci, who took over directing duties from Abrams. While participating in the Humans From Earth podcast (via Badass Digest), Orci explains the plan he’s got laid out.
In [Into Darkness] they set out finally where the original series started. The first two films – especially the 2009 [Star Trek] – was an origin story. It was about them coming together. So they weren’t the characters they were in the original series. They were growing into them and that continues on in the second movie. So in this movie they are closer than they are to the original series characters that you have ever seen. They have set off on their five-year mission. So their adventure is going to be in deep space.
Fans of the original series should be very pleased to hear this news. The first two films saw the crew coming together and learning to work together as a team, especially during the events of Into Darkness, which saw a threat that will be very difficult to top, in more way than one. Speaking of threats, Orci was asked which alien(s) we may be seeing in the three-quel, but not surprisingly, he kept things vague, saying “The Horta is actually the villain in the next one – no – they are in deep space now, so lets see what’s out there.” You didn’t think he’d actually reveal that, did you?
It is expected that Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and John Cho will all return for the third film in the franchise. We can also expect to see the film some time in 2016.
