Ever since J.J. Abrams ditched the Enterprise to go make 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' fans have been wondering who would take the captain's seat on the rebooted franchise and make 'Star Trek 3.' After months of rumors, the most nefarious choice of them all is apparently just about to sign on the dotted line: Roberto Orci.
The 'Star Trek' franchise had all kinds of ups and downs over its 50-year history -- there have been great shows and a bad shows, brilliant movies and insipid ones, memorable starship Captains and Captain Janeway. Now, however, the franchise faces its greatest threat yet. Please don't let Roberto Orci direct 'Star Trek 3.'

When an episode of 'SNL' is produced, countless sketches are pitched, but only a small number of pitches are written, and then even few written sketches are accepted. And then even fewer scripts actually make the finished show with several often being cut during dress rehearsal for a variety of reasons. The video above gives us a look into how the 'SNL' sausage is made -- it's a sketch that was cut before the final airing, starring guest host Louis C.K. as a 'Star Trek' villain who really loves his posters of shirtless humans.
Both 'Star Trek' fans and beer snobs like to obsess over and complain about the thing they claim to love until they alienate everyone in the room, so it only makes sense to combine that market. Behold! The 'Star Trek' beer Klingon Warnog is here and now you can show off your eclectic alcohol tastes and unsettling dedication to a fictional universe at the same time!
It's not surprising that Paramount is planning to build a theme park inspired by their catalog of movies. After all, it's working out fairly well for Universal and Disney. However, what's really cool about the upcoming Paramount Park Murcia is that it will have a large 'Star Trek' presence, finally giving Trekkies a new place to call Geek Mecca.
The critical tempering of 'Star Trek Into Darkness' only emboldened chatter the franchise should look to make a TV return in the future, and while Paramount seems adamant about keeping 'Star Trek' in theaters, we've got the next best thing. FX will adapt meta spoof novel 'Redshirts' into a limited series, bringing author John Scalzi's parody vision to life.
