The 11th Star Trek movie has passed the realm of rumor to become fact, or as close to fact as Hollywood can produce. Empire Magazine is reporting that Paramount, owner of the Trek franchise, has assigned director J.J. Abrams (Lost, Alias) to the film.
The movie will focus on the early days of Kirk and Spock. (Perhaps shedding some light on their mutual attraction to each other that I read so much about on the Internet? Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) A Starfleet Academy-based movie has been talked about for years and it looks like someone finally listened.
