Star Trek XII Script Progress Reports Exaggerated

Star Trek XII Script Reports Exaggerated

With several reports floating around the net the last few weeks about the progress of the Star Trek XII script, we've learned that they all were a bit exaggerated.  As reported by SciFi Wire, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are saying that they don't have anything pinned down yet.  Infact, they commented directly about Zoe Saldana's 'halfway done' remark that she made from Comic-Con.

"She's so generous," Orci said in a group interview at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Pasadena, Calif., where he and Kurtzman were promoting Fox's Fringe. "She thinks so much and so highly of us. We had about a 15- [to] 30-minute discussion with the whole gang and went our separate ways. We're still in the re-reading and taking-it-all-in phase before we actually sit down and start designing it."

Developing a worthy sequel to this year's generally acclaimed and certainly lucrative Trek reboot will take much more time, Kurtzman said. They have to exhaust every possible idea to find the best ones.

"We take nothing for granted at this point," Kurtzman said. "We're only going to do it when it's really right."

The discussions include brainstorming classic Trek missions, which could be revisited with a new timeline established thanks to Spock and Nero's time travel. Even generating new ideas brings up past Trek episodes, Orci said.

"Even when you pitch stuff, sometimes someone will be like, 'Wow, that's like that one episode,'" Orci said. "So even in trying to stay away from it, you can crash back in there." (source SciFi Wire)
