Jendresen Talks Star Trek XI; Aborted Script

Brace Yourself: More Star Trek XI Rumors

SyFyPortal has an interview up with Erik Jendresen was given the task of writing Star Trek XI: The Beginning, a script Jendresen says was the victim of "regime change" at Paramount. However, while the project may have been stalled, it's not necessarily dead.

Jendresen explains that the concept of the film is to fill the "void" between the end of ENT and the beginning of TOS by focusing on Kirk's progenitor, Tiberius Chase. The film would then be the first of a trilogy centered around the formation of the Federation.

”There is a producer at Paramount who has been championing this and the notion that we have the opportunity to plug the gap with this trilogy," Jendresen says.

We'll have to see.


And now I can confirm why Star Trek sucks...The Writers AND Producers!

NP bud...glad to get any news on Star Trek. I guess I'm a big goof cause I really miss it. Not that I even watched in on television anymore (other than reruns), but I always enjoyed the films...even the bad ones.

Re: Jendresen Talks Star Trek XI; Aborted Script

I know what you mean man.

On Good Friday, SPACE (Canada's version of the Sci-Fi channel) ran a Star Trek marathon. It was very cool yet extremely "nerdish" to have sat down and watched all the films on television even though I own them all on DVD.

I noticed how horribly boring Star Trek: TMP was, how healthy it was to bring an outsider (Meyer) to direct Star Trek II, how much I liked Star Trek III (Christopher Lyold is a very underated villain,) how Star Trek IV is an easy way to get a non-trekkie to at least watch Star Trek, and how utterly horrendous Shatner can be at acting if he isn't kept in check by one in authority. Star Trek V was painful to watch, his overacting was annoying. And Meyer did a good job of giving one last hurrah for the crew in Star Trek VI.

It would have been great if II, III and IV were only made and it would have been a great story arc for a trilogy. And even though I find myself saying this, I still don't like Jendresen's idea. You can run into trouble when you paint yourself into a corner. Much like the Star Wars PT, there was only so much Lucas could do while being confined by the parameters he set, and some of the tension and emotion was lost because you vaguely knew Anakin had to turn to the Dark Side, Obi-Wan would live, Luke and Leia would be born etc. etc. while watching the films..

So my only complaint would be that at the end of the day, some of the tension is lost because you vaguely know the parameters of the story, it's simply a fill in the blank piece of Star Trek history, rather than a new adventure that could re-energize the franchise.
