Star Trek 11 Most Like Star Trek II

Star Trek writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci invoked Wrath of Khan in describing which previous film theirs is most like. The duo are making the rounds to promote Eagle Eye (out Sept. 26th) that they helped produce.
IESB: If you would compare it to any past Star Trek movie...?
Bob: In some ways, it shares the spirit with so many of them and in some ways it's, I don't know, [to Kurtzman] which one?
Alex: Tough question to answer, just because there are so many different things. I guess the best way for me to answer is I can tell you that the movie for me that affected me the most as a kid was Wrath of Khan.
Bob: Agreed.
Alex: And that movie stood out for me because it had an unbelievable bad guy and the stakes just never felt higher.
Bob: And every character was at their most actualized. It really had the classic delivery for every character, they are finally their full selves in that movie I think, more than any of the features.
Alex: And obviously the relationship between Kirk and Spock in that movie was as good as it gets. So, I think, that must have, or that contributed to our approach.


  1. Have you seen the October 2008 issue of Maxim with Megan Fox on the cover? There's an interview with Diora Baird that announces that she is officially playing the "green girl" in Star Trek XI. Page 90 if you look it up.

  2. That is so awesome. ST II was the best Star Trek!
