Paramount has announced that they are going to release "Star Trek 2" on June 29th, 2012, right in the middle of the summer blockbuster frey.
As it stands right now, the summer of 2012 will be overflowing with big-budget fantasy fair that already includes, "The Avengers", "Madagascar 3", "Wolverine 2", "Batman 3" (Gotham?), "Spider-Man 4", Pxar's "Newt" all confirmed, plus potentially, "Iron Man 3", "Ant-Man" and "Dr Strange".
Wew, that's one hell of a list, better start saving up now true believers.
Not much is known about J.J. Abrams follow-up to last years incredible "Star Trek" re-boot except that Abrams, Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman have all hinted that they want the film's plot to pertain to current, modern, and relevant events, political or otherwise.
Abrams explains, "The ambition for a sequel to 'Star Trek' is to make a movie that's worthy of the audience and not just another movie, you know, just a second movie that feels tacked on...There needs to be relevance, yes, and that doesn't mean it should be pretentious. If there are simple truths, truths connected to what we live, that elevates any story, that's true with any story."
Orci echos, "We got a lot of fan response from the first one and a considerable amount of critical response and one of the things we heard was, ‘Make sure the next one deals with modern-day issues.' We're trying to keep it as up-to-date and as reflective of what's going on today as possible. So that's one thing, to make it reflect the things that we are all dealing with today."
I don't know about you, but I really don't care if "Trek" tackles "Health Care" or "Economic Uncertainties" or not.
What I suggest is that the next "Star Trek" should go 'green', and by that I don't mean that it should be about conservation or bringing extinct whales back to save Earth from some damn probe.
No, what I propose is more Orion slave girls, and an all-out battle with "The Gorn". Now, that's what I call 'green' entertainment at it's finest.
To be honest, I was always a little upset that in all the follow-ups to the classic "Trek" television series, that no one ever went back and revisited those bad-ass, warrior, lizard men.
I think that now is a great time to give "The Gorn" another shot.
And, well when it comes to the green Orion women, I think that the photo above speaks for itself. In this modern take on the classic character from the original "Trek" it was the lovely Rachel Nichols who supplied the curves to go along with the green body paint. As you may already know, Nichols ranked 3rd on our list of "The Top Ten Hottest Women Of 2009 ".
Need I say more.
Indeed, I believe that it is time for "Star Trek" to go green.
It sure wouldn't hurt when you are going up against "Batman", a slew of computer animated critters and...oh..I dunno.....the whole Marvel Comics universe.
Just a thought........
