Kurtzman And Orci On 'Star Trek XI'
 
Filling in the background of the characters fans grew to love over the years is part of what made working on <i>Star Trek XI</i> so interesting for co-writers <font color=yellow>Alex Kurtzman</font> and <font color=yellow>Roberto Orci</font>.<p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF="http://www.ugo.com">UGO</A>, what attracted Kurtzman and Orci was the opportunity to explore the backstories of the characters from the original series, including that of the enigmatic Spock. "...One of the things that attracted all of us to covering some things that had never been covered in canon about Spock is his background," said Kurtzman. "A lot of people don't know that his mother was human, and that his father was Vulcan. A lot of people that came to work on the movie, that was something they found out."<p>"We all know relatives that know basic things about Kirk and Spock, and that kind of seminal thing that was in Spock's background was invaluable," Kurtzman continued. "And Nimoy's involvement is a testament to the fact that there's continuity in that character. And you are going to get to see this rich character who was torn between two worlds. And his parents are torn in two worlds. And the pain that that caused their two families."<p>Drawing upon the vast <i>Star Trek</i> world of shows, movies and books for inspiration while writing <i>Star Trek XI</i>, the writers included some of the <i>Star Trek</i> novels when considering what was <i>Star Trek</i> canon. "There are actually some things that's very interesting including the novels and even to some degree in the shows versus the movies is that there are different interpretation of events," said Kurtzman. "And some blank sports that are open to interpretation. So, I think and certainly in approaching it we saturated ourselves in everything, including the novels <i>Best Destiny</i> and <i>Spock's World</i>." <p>"And that might mean that a lot of the continuity we take from the novels might be the character continuity," added Orci.<p>To read more, head to the article located <A class="link" HREF="http://www.ugo.com/movies/exclusive-star-trek-photo/?cur=interview">here</A>.<center></center>

Wrong.

They know exactly what they're doing.

You just don't like what they're doing.

I do. :)

How many times do we have to hear this from uber hardcores??? Why did anything have to be confirmed. It was pretty obvious that there would be some reinterpretation of the Star Trek universe ever since this thing was announced.

Agreed - it's arrogant and untrue.

But they don't think they're uber hardcore or purists. They're the only true fans, and anyone who doesn't adhere to their personal opinion of what Star Trek should be 100% of the time just doesn't understand Trek at all and shouldn't be considered a fan. Duh! :)
