'Star Trek' Sequel: Production Is Under Way in L.A.
Absolutely awesome !!! Can barely wait... this new crew and writers and cgi make the continuance of Star Trek fitful of this point in time. New science, new technology, new understandings of the universe worthy of new stories, new adventures & more sequels !!! The last movie was an almost perfect reboot to a relaunch of the capturing of the essence that Star Trek evokes. Gimme more planets, more monsters, more aliens, more spaceships, more strange scenerios that are hard to imagine. Get these guys to re-energize the the conventions and wahoo for all !!!
