Boldly going... where others have gone before, only slightly differently

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.

Really now...I've been so busy with the new job that I've slacked off on these types of news. I like Kirk though.

BTW, hello. :)

Hello! Heh heh, is your new job to wander the earth like Kwai Chang Cain, dishing out justice? :D

Always nice to hear from you... don't work too hard!
