New writers speak

Part 1 of a TrekCore interview with Patrick McKay and JD Payne.

Fascinating hints toward a possibly a villain-less ST3. To be honest though, I'm a little bit nervous about their TNG love (my least favourite Trek). But the STIII/IV love makes me happy!

They seem like genuinely nice guys. However, I literally know nothing about their work though outside of their time in the 80s pop group "The Proclaimers."

Re: New writers speak

The TNG episode names he rattled off from the top of his head certainly made a good impression, I like all of them quite a bit

You know what Kirk needs to really grow up? Discovering The Inner Light probe.

Well, TNG is Orci's favorite Trek, so maybe don't freak out?

I enjoyed them referring to Star Wars and Indiana Jones as "all those chestnuts from the period."

I don't see anything there to suggest that the plan for Star Trek 3 is to go villainless.

They are pretty clear that they aren't ruling that option out, which is something I wouldn't expect from JJ Trek.

Which means absolutely nothing because ultimately they don't rule things in and out. Everything that they do on this movie, at every point in development, will be guided and have to be approved by producers and more importantly by the studio that's going to fund it. "You know what was cool on TNG" from the new writers doesn't actually provide a clue to what Paramount wants and will greenlight - but a look at their other successful recent summer blockbusters does.

Especially since it may well take two additional decades to determine what, if anything, was cool on TNG.

You may recall that the writers weren't ruling it out in interviews following the 2009 movie, either:
Collider wrote:
If you watched my “Star Trek” video blog with Peter from Slashfilm, we discussed what we wanted to see in a sequel. I brought up what we talked about and asked Bob [Orci] and Alex [Kurtzman] what kind of villain we’d get in the sequel. I also asked if they’d set anything up in part two that might pay off in another film. They say they’re debating between “the exploration sci-fi plot where the unknown and nature itself is somehow an adversary or the villain model. That’s an active discussion we’re having right now. In terms of thinking about more than one movie, we want the movie to be self-contained in a way, but we’re discussing the idea of having a couple of threads where if the second movie works, you could pick up into a cohesive whole.
At this early stage, everything is still up in the air.

Re: New writers speak

McKay wasn't a teenager when TNG first aired? YOU KIDS GET OFF OF MY TREK!

Actually, I am very pleased, again.

When I hear those involved talk about how they like the character relationships (like in TSFS and TVH), I believe there's a high probability that they "get it" when it comes to Trek.

After the next movie, we might be saying, "J.J. who?"
