As we know, "Band of Brothers" scribe Erik Jendresen has done a deal with Paramount to write an eleventh Star Trek film which for the first time in history which will feature a whole new cast to be introduced on the big screen.

In an interview with SyFyPortal, Jendresen confirmed that the movie would take place more than a century before Kirk, but acknowledged that it would not be an "Enterprise" spinoff. "I can certainly say that the story concept, the basic idea of this thing, is pretty damn big... When they first approached me, I wasn't really interested. But they said, 'What if we could approach this as a blank slate, and here's a notion.' When I heard the notion, I realized that the people I was talking to were serious, and genuinely dedicated. I started to really think about it, and, ultimately to develop a story. And it's a pretty good one" said the scribe.

The plan is to do something grittier, "There's an old tradition in space films, if you think about it, where war and conflict are very sterile. Death doesn't hurt, it's not really ugly. You can get killed by a phaser and just ... disintegrate. We're going 160-odd years before Kirk is born. It's an earlier time, and I think it would be really refreshing to feel something in the course of telling this tale, instead of being wowed by special effects, or presenting another crew in jeopardy where, in the end, the captain does something brilliant, and all's right with the world" says Jendresen.

Reports have "Star Trek XI" being released sometime in 2007. No director or cast has been set yet, but it is clear that characters from other Star Trek properties will not be included.

Sounds downright interesting. (even if it's just a rumor)

I'm a fan of "Dirty-Space Sci-fi" myself.

That sounds horrid. 150 years before Kirk? New crew?

It's going to be based off of fan fiction, isn't it? I hate fan fiction.

They should make a movie about Captain Sulu and the crew of the Excelsior if they want a new crew.

Not quite.

That story was from March 2005. You need to look at the dates of the story.

In July 2005 it was rumored to be filming in Austrailia and the Movie is suppose to take place in the year 2010 (?????)
See:
http://trekweb.com/articles/2005/07/22/42e1880605171.shtml

Then last month they said the script was scrapped and there wouldn't be a Star Trek movie or TV series for a few years.
http://trekweb.com/stories.php?aid=440154f6ab937

"The latest issue of Dreamwatch magazine, just out in the UK, reported that the Doug Mirabello, who is the personal assistant to Rick Berman, had made a post at The Awful Forums, which pretty much denied all recent rumours about Star Trek XI, and said there isn’t likely to be any Star Trek in movie theatres or on Television for quite some time.

Mirabello reported that the Erik Jendresen Star Trek The Beginning script had been scrapped.

He also says that to his knowledge there are no plans for using Patrick Stewart in any forthcoming TNG movie projects. "It’s more likely that some executive had a casual conversation with him and brought up some hypotheticals which he ran with when some reporter asked him about Star Trek…. But there’s a chance that someone else at Paramount is planning something huge and keeping us out of the loop. From what I’ve heard, Patrick wouldn’t do another Trek movie unless they paid him Professor X money…"

Mirabello was also more than happy to talk about some of the problems, which had plagued Enterprise.

"They had a hit show in the 1980's… they never really evolved with the times. People generally knew when an [Enterprise] episode was bad. We even had one director go to the producers and tell them he was ashamed to direct the episode where our crew turned into lizard people. The [Enterprise] finale was one of those where you’d go down to the stage and see people shaking their heads while reading the script."

As to if there is a future for any new Star Trek on television in the next few years, Mirabello is not optimistic, and is less so now that the merger between UPN and WB is in full swing.

"The TV side is now technically in control of the franchise’s future, and Les Moonves hates all things Sci-Fi. However, I think this is actually for the best – the public needs to want to see Star Trek again. The best way to achieve this is to take it away for a few years and then bring it back and do it right. The franchise needs a totally new creative team, some time off, and a cool new approach."

Live Long and Prosper.

I wonder how that genius, Moonves, feels when he reads about the ratings and critical acclaim that Galactica is acheiving?

All the rumors I've been hearing have been about a movie set in the time after Enterprise, but nearly a century before TOS (Kirk). It would be about the Romulan war, which might have been included in Enterprise, had it continued to it's planned seven year run. Totally new cast, noone from any of the series or movies. One thing is certain, they are putting the 'franchise' on hold for the forseeable future, to give Star Trek a break. Much as I hate to say it, maybe people really are burned out on Trek?

Possibly, but I am not sure I really agree.

I saw a show over the weekend on History channel hosted by William Shatner. It was a two hour special on how Star Trek has affected real life technology.

In the end, he recaps the last couple TV series created after the death of Gene Rodenberry, Voyager, Deep Space 9, and Enterprise. He (Shatner) contends none were as big of a hit as TNG because they were no longer following Rodenberry's formula for what made Star Trek interesting. His argument was that Rodenberry's formula called for in part showing things with a positive light, where as these last three series were far more dark in their scope. I dunno if I buy it or not, but it is a different angle anyway.

My belief. The people involved in these series just ran out of ideas and/or writing talent. I didn't mind Voyager, but I thought DS9 was a little boring. Always waiting for the problem to show up at their base instead of going out exploring, discovering, etc. Enterprise was just not well written, and Bakula IMO did a rather poor job as Archer (although it may simply have been the writing that caused this).

Maybe some time off is a good idea. Let people have a break, and especially let some new people with new ideas pop up to do the writing.

I have heard that people don't like the gritty side of Star trek. They want the wonderful utopia of roddenberry.

I say lets see some tragic Star Trek. I want space stations blowing up and planets being sterilized with bio bombs and some civil war amongst the humans and a few assinations and lots of hostile races being obliterated and body floating away from wreckage while blood leaks out of torn space suits and it freezes on one side while burning up on the other oh oh oh !!! I want to see some kamakazi klingons ramming their decrepid ships into nice bright white earth ships and dudes in space suits with ray guns being run over by starships. Maybe even have one get plastered on the windows of ten forward. You know stuff like that.

In other words, like real life? Isn't that why we watch science fiction, to ecape?

Bakula who?

Enterprise for me was all about Jolene. I'd pay $8 to see that rack on the big screen.

BSG, SG1 and Atlantis have been scratching my itch pretty well. BSG, in particular.

Yes, quite a few actually
I am trying to get a book publisher interested in using my collection for an updated full photo Star Trek Collectable Book.
None of this full of text and maybe color 5 pages in the center kind of thing, or mostly black and white scattered through out book. This will be all color photo's with detailed descriptions and with pictures of some items even some history about it listed. Nothing that has ever been done before as far as a Star Trek collectable book.
I have so much stuff, many that have never been seen in a collectable book before that I don't think we could fit it all into one book and i have been working to shore up some weak areas of some of the collectibles I was missing or were incomplete.
The problem I am finding is that most publishers won't talk to you or return your calls/letters unless you have an agent

I watched the whole movie a few weeks ago. Very impressive effects. When the "star fleet" goes to the other dimension they lose their shields. If it wasn't for that it would have been a slaughter.
