    Hope I don't get into trouble for posting a new thread here...

    I read an interview with Pine in todays Mirror (British newspaper). In it they ask - "William Shatner made seven Star Trek feature movies. How many do you think you will make?"

    He is quoted as replying "I'm commited to two more at this point. Er, not sure if I should have said that [laughs]"

    Unfortunately I cannot find a weblink to this interview.

    Oh cool! Is this definitely a new interview? IIRC, the cast signed a three-movie deal at the start, should STXI have been successful.

    Four big budget, action packed Trek movies sounds good to me!:techman:

    I guess we can now count on a whale and a Borg film.

    Or at least a whale of a Borg film.

    Or Borg Whales?

    This is good news. I thought he only signed on for three movies total. I wonder if the others have signed on for more?

    I saw a video interview from the London premiere where he only mentioned 1 more film.

    I can certainly see the appeal of Borg orcas. Given what I've been getting from the Into Darkness clips, Borg orcas are a real possibility for the next film.

    This is good news. More of a good thing, as far as I'm concerned.

    The borg belongs in the mid 90's prime techobabble universe where the likes of La Forge, Nelix and Harry Kim were the faces of star trek.

    To put the borg in the next film would be creative and subsequently commercial suicide IMO.

    Not if they were given a makeover. Drop the obvious rubber costumes and Uncle Fester face-paint, use CG to replace body parts with machinery. Make the collective more diverse and horrifying, as in the novel The Return -nonhumanoid Borg, grotesque organic machinery. Steampunk horror show super Borg. It could be awesome.

    When putting that together, I realized I don't have any decent Trek fonts.

    Well its good to know he will be around for 2 more. I liked his portrayal of Kirk even when the writing forced his character to be incredibly stupid in some situations.

    Was it this one?

    It sounds as if the wording for the one you saw may have been slightly changed, but it also looks like the Mirror may have been recycling material from a 2009 piece.

    Hmm, as I understand, the plan has always been to do a trilogy. But if Pine is indeed signed on for two movies, could that mean they're planning a two-part story? That's technically a trilogy with four movies.

    Interesting. The lion's share of Borg appearances are from 1996-2001, which I consider late 90s, not mid.

    I disagree. The Borg are pretty popular Trek villains. Sure, Trek fans may be sick of them, and still whine a decade after the fact that Voyager pussified them, but among the general public the Borg are "cool." First Contact is after all the most popular TNG movie and Borg merchandise does sell well. And Enterprise's Borg episode was one with higher ratings than usual. "Resistance is Futile" is a recognizable catch phrase in pop culture, and chances are you ask some random person the meaning of the word assimilate they're going to say "that's what those Borg guys do in Star Trek" even if they don't watch Star Trek. Putting the Borg in the next Trek movie would not be commercial suicide at all. I will actually be surprised, very surprised if the Borg are not the villains of Trek XIII.

    And besides, the Borg have already been featured in the Abramsverse young adult Starfleet Academy novel series which is directly supervised by Bad Robot, so they obviously don't feel the Borg only belong among the "days when Neelix and Harry Kim were Star Trek's face."
