Interview with Star Trek 12 Writers

TrekMovie was able to score an exclusive interview (yep I am jealous) with the writers of Star Trek 12 - Damon Lindelof, Roberto Orci, and Alex Kurtzman. The video of the interview and the transcript can be found here.

The highlights:
- On rumor of meeting a September start principle photography start date, the answer was confusing but came down to if J.J. Abrams thinks it is ready.
- Writer's still determining what the line is on what and number of classic Trek elements to bring in as they try to create their own canon. Lindelof, "It is just finding that balance so it’s not too inside, but it inside enough so that the people that have invested the last forty years of their live in this incredible myth feel like they are getting their money’s worth."
- While they have worked on the script for technically 9 months, this is really the first time they have been able to work on it full time.
- Have no desire or intent to remake Wrath of Khan but will use it as a model for getting the characters right.
