Writer Teases Potential Star Trek 3 Story Concept

TrekCore has found the first new bit of Star Trek 3 information in months. In a video of an interview with Star Trek 3 co-writer JD Payne recorded back in February for the LDS Film Festival, the writer commented on a story idea that is being considered for the film. Of note is the idea has a very Star Trek like idea and an ambitious idea for any movie, Trek or otherwise. As for why the delay, the video was just posted in the last week.
"We're trying to set up a kind of situation where you really could -- and not in just an 'everything's relative' sort of moral relativism -- you could be a good person of any creed or philosophical background and come down on both sides of how you should respond to this opportunity that the crew has.... that also has some pitfalls to it. Where you could argue very, very, very compellingly that 'this' is what you should do, and if you're advocating 'this' then it's actually evil.

It's sort of the Adam and Eve thing, where should we eat the fruit or not eat the fruit? Well, there are some very compelling reasons why they should and why they shouldn't. So, similar kinds of things here that really give the whole movie and opportunity to sort of play with that, and have people come down on different side and wrestle with it; then come to an ending where you can walk out and say, 'You know, I don't know what I would do.'"
