Is STID is a hit, Abrams should do the decent thing and make clear in quick order what his plans are for Star Trek.

Whether he will direct the next one or just produce or even give up production duties entirely.
When we will likely see the third movie (obviously 2016 would be ideal.)

Don't give a bunch of vague answers or promises.
If Star Wars is coming for 2015 or gets pushed to 2016 he can't be directing the next Trek unless it's gonna be 2018 or later--unacceptable.

Just make up your mind and tell us a concrete path forward.
Problem is, Abrams has quite a solid reputation based on vaue promises/anwers. It's his thing.

There isn't a clear path forward until we have a concrete production time-table and release date for Episode VII.

Wrong.

If SW is 2015, ST 3 is doable in 2016. If they want to push it to 2017, fine - it'll be the same separation as ST 1 and ST 2.

You need to be the Kwisatz Haderach to see the path.

Oops, wrong franchise.

It's looking more and more like Bad Robot may not be involved in Star Trek XIII....

And to see my friend JJ achieve an impossible dream (cue music) brings genuine joy. He is one of the true good guys in the world.

I thought someone from Paramount already said Bad Robot would be producing the third installment?

They did.


According to Paramount Vice Chairman Rob Moore, Abrams — who directed both 2009′s “Star Trek” and the upcoming sequel “Star Trek Into Darkness” — will still be involved in some capacity with a possible third “Trek” movie, at the minimum as a producer, if not also directing the film.
Moore also pointed out that Abrams will continue to play a role in another of the studio’s most valuable franchises, “Mission: Impossible.”
“J.J. will continue to develop projects for us including a new ‘Mission: Impossible,’ and he is committed to produce another ‘Star Trek,’” Moore said Friday afternoon.

Here's a 1970s cult-classic TV show (video below) that could use re-booting with a film franchise.
It doesn't need to be Abrams, but it would be great if some studio finally gives this TV show a big-picture treatment (I've heard rumors about a possible film, but just rumors).

One movie that I wish Disney would give a sequel to.

The effects were all Gerry Anderson (Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlett, Space 1999), and they DID have a certain cheesiness, but in a good way. The show itself (story-wise) was often very well done.

I just looked that up! I obviously remember Virginia Lake from UFO (she was one of the many hotties on that show), but I seriously had no idea that the actress (Wanda Ventham) was Cumberbatch's mother. I'm not sure how I ever missed that.

Thanks for that!


EDIT TO ADD:
Colonel Virginia Lake (Wanda Ventham -- Cumberbatch's mum):
