    Star Trek 2 Co-writer Roberto Orci tells fans which characters (and one race) will not be seen in Star Trek 2. Four specific original series characters and one race were mentioned by Orci as being absent from Star Trek 2. The race that won’t be seen in Star Trek 2 will be the Borg. Four [...]

    I really hope J.J. Abrams stays away from the Borg permanently. That dead horse has been beaten to death, long before prime universe Trek ended. As for characters from TOS, I actually wouldn't mind seeing an appearance by a familiar character such as Janice Rand or Gary Mitchell, but if they go the route of re-doing a major villain such as Khan, I think that would be a letdown.

    Why would he specifically mention Ruk? I found that to be odd. Was there speculation of a Roger Corby story line and that Cumberbatch was playing Corby?

    Also I guess if a Roger Corby story line is ruled out we won't see a re-vamped Andrea either.

    Orci's just goofing off and picked random characters to say they won't be mentioned in the movie. Clearly he thought of Ruk before Korob popped into his head. There's nothing deeper than that.

    Although since he's not on that list, I'm hoping that maybe Larry Marvick is going to be in the movie.

    Korob and Larry Marvick are definitely going to be in the film.

    Good! It's about time the secondary characters got some screen time to develop. :cool:

    Why is nobody talking about the other thing the article says you know the whole Abrams has had talks with CBS about doing a new trek cartoon.

    If Ruk isn't in it I hope the penis rock can still make an appearance :D.

    No, damn it! Abrams has to stop taking things from TOS and start coming up with his own ideas. I like Penis Rock as much as anyone, but this movie needs a fresh new approach.

    Besides, we'd probably have Penis Rock rendered in CGI and it would probably look totally wrong. Too small or something...

    I will boycott this movie if there is not a penis rock.

    "Sir, is that bulge in your clothing a collection of reasonably priced food which isn't sold at our concession area?"
    "No, it's just a penis rock."
    "Ah. Carry on."

    Interesting that Eve and Cumberbatch have now been labelled as 'canon' characters. Since chapel was left off the list of characters not appearing and Eve's notation as 'new to canon' has been removed, she could indeed be Chapel.

    ...which would be great, as Chapel already had something of a split-second cameo in ST XI.
