Star Trek Sequel in 2012?

While at the 2009 Screenwriting Expo in Los Angeles, Star Trek writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci spoke with Coming Soon about the target date for the sequel to the film being set for 2012, indicating a long way for Trek fans.
"We're rereading some of our favorite 'Star Trek' novels now and watching the original series again. The honest answer is we don't know yet," Orci said. "We think it's going to be a 2012 release, but I'm not sure," he continued.

"Originally we thought we were going to have to have the script in by Christmas, but the release changed so certainly within the next eight months I'd say," Kurtzman told us.

We tried to find out where the two writers would like to see the story go and Orci said: "They're established now in the second movie and they're finally a crew so it will resemble what you see in terms of they are already who they are."
On the bright side, its sounds like the 2012 date is just an educated guess and it is possible that the film get come sooner. Then again, Abrams and the writers are hot properties right now with projects in the pipeline that include Fringe, Mission Impossible 4, Cowboys and Aliens, and more so really no telling how things will shake down until official announcements are made.

I wonder what Trek novels they are reading? Personally I recommend pretty much any of the novels written by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens if your thinking of giving the novels a go to get a Trek fix between films.
