And green chicks. Lots and lots of green chicks.
Golden ticket for what you ask? JJ Abrams has been picked up to helm the 11th feature installment for Star Trek!
JJ Abrams to Direct Star TrekAccording to Variety, Paramount has picked up Mission: Impossible III director J.J. Abrams to produce and direct the 11th Star Trek feature with hopes of getting the Enterprise back out of the docking station by 2008.
The story will be penned by Abrams and MI3 scribes Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. After conflicting rumors that mentioned a return to Starfleet Academy with new characters, it has now been confirmed that the story will center on the early days of seminal Star Trek characters James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock, including their first meeting at Starfleet Academy and first outer space mission.
What this most likely means is we will be able to see Captain Kirk pass the infamous Kobayashi Maru, a test that stumped every cadet before and after James T. Kirk's go with the program.
Best news of all: the guys that ruined Trek on television Brian Bragga and Rick Berman are nowhere near this project.
