As starved as we are for any scoop or footage of J.J. Abrams' 'Star Trek 2,' it's no secret that we'd love to see 'Star Trek' back on the small screen one day.  Of course, it'd be impossible to say whether any future 'Star Trek' TV series would follow the new continuity established by the Abrams films, or return to the classic universe, but at least one 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' star believes he's moving closer toward spinning off into his own series.  Could it ever really happen?

A few days ago, Karl Urban told the internet that the first footage from the upcoming 'Star Trek 2' would premiere this weekend. To be specific, he promised that a video called "Star Trek Comic Con Sneak Peek" would arrive on YouTube. It turns out that the new "Bones" McCoy and star of 'Dredd' was pulling our leg: the video (which actually is titled "Star Trek Comic Con Sneak Peek") contains about give seconds of behind-the-scenes 'Trek' footage and about four minutes of Urban surfing, amongst other nonsense.

Alex Kurtzman Interview: Talking 'People Like Us' and the Secrets of 'Star Trek 2' and 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'

Alex Kurtzman has crafted a remarkable career as a genre film and television writer/producer. He and partner Roberto Orci have been attached to some of the most beloved science-fiction offerings of the last several years. From televisions ‘Fringe,’ to the wildly successful cinematic ‘Star Trek’ reboot (as well as the sequel that is currently in production), the pair has left a sizable imprint on the industry. As just one example of their upcoming projects, and prior the release of the first, the writing duo has been tapped to write ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2.'
But roughly eight-years-ago the prolific geek and action-centric scribe felt the urge to explore the possibilities that a smaller, more intimate drama may offer. Inspired by events from his own life, Kurtzman began to draft a script for what became ‘People Like Us,’ the story of two siblings who grew up in different households, who live in vastly divergent worlds and yet come together and connect as adults.
With the film’s release this Friday, June 29th Kurtzman unveils his directorial debut, as well as a small piece of the most private corners of his own experience. It is a film one rarely sees these days. It invites the audience into a, dare I say it, adult conversation about the imperfect nature of relationships and the missteps that we often make that can still manage to bring us to something beautiful.
We had the opportunity to speak with Kurtzman recently about shifting gears for ‘People Like Us’, the movies he credits with changing his life and crafting large-scale event films in a post-Nolan Hollywood.

To those who mock 'Star Trek' he's the epitome of the original series' low budget badness. To fans, he is a mighty reptilian warrior whose brawn was bested by Kirk's brain on one of the best episodes of television ever.
He is The Gorn! And, if the news out of E3 is any indication, he may be in the upcoming 'Star Trek' sequel.

When a filmmaker like J.J. Abrams spends so much of his time keeping secrets about his latest film from the audience, any new nugget feels like a revelation. And so - confirming an old rumor - it looks like Abrams let the cat out of the bag at last night's MTV Movie Awards that Klingons will have a role in 'Star Trek 2.'

'Star Trek' Doing Worf-Centric Straight-to-DVD Movie?

The 'Star Trek' franchise has become a curious fish, what with the entirety of its 5-series canon being rebooted by J.J. Abrams' ongoing film series, while still keeping some tangential connections.  With Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Benedict Cumberbatch now off on their own adventures through the galaxy, is there any room to return to the classic 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' universe?  One star certainly seems to think so.

When you're attached to a J.J. Abrams movie, you're automatically sworn to keep quiet on some of the key plot points and characters in order to lure the fans in. But when you're dealing with a sequel as monstrous as 'Star Trek 2,' fans will begin to make up all sorts of rumors, especially one that actor Simon Pegg is tired of answering.

Who doesn't love Simon Pegg? The answer: no one. Only bad people don't like Simon Pegg. Therefore, any Simon Pegg-related news is cause for celebration. Fresh out of Cannes, Pegg is set to star in 'Hector and the Search For Happiness.'

'Star Trek 2' To Bring Back Leonard Nimoy?

It made sense to bring Leonard Nimoy’s version of Spock into the fold for J.J. Abrams’ ‘Star Trek’ reboot. The character’s actions on screen literally restarted the franchise, allowing Abrams and his team to introduce younger versions of our cherished characters. But does it make any sense to bring Nimoy back for the sequel?
