Well, it seems that one key detail about the new Start Trek movie coming out next year has been revealed via Moriarty at Ain't it Cool, and summarized a bit better at Chud.
It seems that it's going to be a reboot of sorts... it'll be an alternate timeline of Trek, a Trek where Captain James T. Kirk doesn't exist. Could be cool - a fresh start is what this franchise desperately needs, but by tying it into lame time travel shenanigans they may be tying it too much to the existing universe.
Hopefully not... hopefully, it'll be more of a clean slate. Time will tell.
