Star Trek 2 Begins Filming

Star Trek film reboot logoStar Trek 2 has begun filming in Los Angeles this week and is scheduled for release on May 17, 2013.

Much to the surprise of many, myself included, the 2009 reboot of Star Trek was highly enjoyable, and a sequel seemed assured.  Due to the busy schedules of just about everyone involved, it took longer to get started than more assumed it would, but another entry is finally on its way. All of the original cast (Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Anton Yelchin, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban) is returning along with a few new actors such as Benedict Cumberbatch as the-yet-to-be-named villain.

There’s no word as of yet to what we may be seeing for a plot in this one, as in if it’s something new or based on an episode of the original series.

As I said earlier, I was surprised by how much I liked the first one, and I am actually looking forward to another film in this timeline of the series, but can we not totally forget the original?  I’m not saying we should be given a new TV series or anything, but for those of us who followed it for years would at least something done there once in a while so we don’t feel like all of that invested time wasn’t a total waste.

(… okay, yeah, it still was)
