Re: Bryan Burk interview on Newsarama

Very comforting interview.

I like these quotes.

Bryan Burk:

Writer/Executive Producer Bob Orci knows it absurdly well and is a hardcore Trekker as he calls it.

BB: The thing about these franchises is you want to be faithful to the canon and just like how on Lost there is a rulebook and you can’t break those rules, Star Trek has its own canon which you have to stick to. You have to figure out how to be faithful, but also give yourself enough leeway to be able to create and expand on it. From the initial pitch when we sat down, there was a very definitive idea of what this film should be, how to do it, and how we can make sure it appeals to old and new fans. We would have conversations about the story and Orci would be like “No, you can’t do that.”

The idea was always to embrace what came before and add to it like every other composer in the series. I think Michael did it with a big epic score, but it’s not like anything he’s ever done before.

NRAMA: Is it too early to be talking sequels?

BB: We always think beyond and what we can do bigger, better, and more emotional next time.

NRAMA: Does that mean everyone has signed on for more?

BB: Well, I signed on [laughter]. The answer is yes, we all want to work on the next one together because we couldn’t have had a better experience.
Warp Speed, Mister Nimoy.

Makes me feel hopeful, too. Makes this talk about "throwing out TOS continuity"/alternate timelines sound even more like hooey.
