You can bet that writing/producing team for the last Star Trek film Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are keeping themselves busy promoting Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen which is
set for release tomorrow. However, the success of their previous project, 'Star Trek,' is still very fresh in their minds. In an interview with Sci Fi Wire , the two creators get discuss not only what made the first Star Trek film a success, but also delve into what they want to do for the sequel to the first film.
They also addressed the reactions of the many die-hard Star Trek fans that found themselves so pleased with the result of the first film, and cite that they know what works now and that "their approach won't be radically different from the one they took on with the previous film."
"The debate is do you do a story where you go through some familiar things from the series, but now their outcome can be a little bit different, or do you just make it totally new? "That's what we're kind of debating right now,...We're kind of going through everything we know and love and making sure we don't leave any unexplored gems. And then also simultaneously trying to think of new things completely. So we'll see. The best idea wins, original or old."
