Behold the first set photo from the Star Trek sequel!

Feb. 2, 2012by: Niki Stephens

It's hard to contain my excitement for the STAR TREK sequel (let's call it STAR TREK 2 for now). JJ Abrams has been teasing the timing of this thing forever. The guy is a hot commodity so I wasn't surprised that he didn't immediately start on this. It's also sometimes a smart move creatively. I'd rather wait a couple of years on a sequel then have someone spit some shitty storyline out just to make more money.

There's currently no plot but the newest cast members are an interesting group to bring to the table: Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve, Noel Clarke, and Peter Weller. Everything from DOCTOR WHO to SHERLOCK to ROBOCOP-- good mix.

The first photo from the set makes me feel like a kid on Christmas day. One of the screenwriters, Bob Orci tweeted this along with a pic, "whole family, from in front and behind the camera". Our fearless leader (Abrams) stands proud.

gotta be from Trek 2

Kirk never rocked the yellow uni and Scott wasn't on the main deck in that scene, so unless this is a shot from right after shooting that last scene, it's gotta be from Trek 2

time travel?

Odd photo especially considering that these sets are still being built right now and not near complete.

The last Star Trek (reboot) had nothing to do with Star Trek - which is why I liked it. It was way more "Star Wars" than Trek which I never could enjoy. Looking forward to part 2.

I am very upset, I thought I would at least get 100 thumbs down. Well a few years ago when Transformers came out every one loved it and creamed their fucking fanboy pants, and I said it sucked bad story, megatron is defeated by a kid, stupid off-putting comedy, the transformers werent treated as characters etc. I got thumbs down, then part 2 came out and everyone said it sucked, for the same FUCKING REASONS I said part 1 sucked. This will happen again here. Please show me some love and

Creamfinger said it below. To extend what he said I think Joblo should have a caption this section.

There should be a caption contest for this picture. "Attention! This is the Captain. Everyone come to the bridge, you won't believe what we've got on the main viewer!"

I love how John Cho is in front of everyone and looks like he is REALLY happy to be there. Good for him.

Can't wait for this sequel. Would have still loved to see Del Toro in this.

I am baffled at JJs fans, his trek movie sucked. If JJ is so great, why didnt he create new characters to build on, instead of ruining classic ones? Ask anyone about trek and they will say, yeah, thats the show with the pointed ear guy who is logical and has no emotion well not in JJs retarded ass universe he cant even get ONE character right. What a fucking piece of shit movie, and thumbs down me all you want!
But ask yourself this, what if Nolan made Batman a happy go-lucky guy who

But ask yourself this, what if Nolan made Batman a happy go-lucky guy who smiles all the time and then tells you, well this is before he was the real Batman, so its ok, he will be the dark knight later. Give me a fucking break. I want to see the real trek characters on screen, not JJs version of what he thinks is cool.

hmm? I'm trying to understand what your all worked up about? Spok seemed pretty logical to me in JJ'S version. Is that the only reason you hate the movie so bad?

The storyline was bad, Kirk’s back story was wrong, Spock showed emotion – I know he has emotions, but they are buried away like all vulcans. They destroyed Vulcan, Uhura and Spock never had a thing, cause well he has no fucking emotions, Scotty was a fool – he gets trapped in a tube and flies around like fucking sonic the hedgehog. What the fuck is going on? The entire Trek universe is ruined for no reason. Why not make new characters and in a new story, so then no one can complain when

I'm baffled by your response. I think the first thing you are ignoring in your rant is that this is NOT the timeline of the original Star Trek...that the time traveler in JJ's version disrupted that timeline BEFORE KIRK WAS BORN, so that everything has a reason it can be different. Kirk's backstory is exactly right for THIS timeline. Similarly for the destruction of Vulcan...it is in THIS timeline.

I have to admit, I sense in you the same sort of frustration I felt when "Next Gen" first

I have to admit, I sense in you the same sort of frustration I felt when "Next Gen" first came out, and I thought it "ruined" Star Trek. Turns out, it really didn't. Take heart..you may love this one day.

Next Gen was still a scifi show. Ideas, social commentary, interesting aliens etc. My first series was DS9 – some think that is anti-trek, but at least its scifi. This movie was just a bad action flick that didn’t want to be scifi, but didn’t want to be all action. Someone above said it was more like Star Wars, which isn’t good. Star wars is good, but its sci-fantasy, trek was always more thought provoking.
I know the timeline is diff, that’s part of the problem. They just did that

Gotta love J.J. Abrams...

Even the on-set photo has a lens flair.
