Maybe you’ve forgotten, but Star Trek 11 is still alive and kicking over at Paramount. In what feels like a long time (in internet chronology) since any major announcement or noteworthy rumor-speculation, even updates on the upcoming film get their own story. Consider:
IESB is reporting a few bullet points on the upcoming "may or may not be a reboot" resuscitation of the franchise Time got tired of. Only a few people know any details of the plot or the next Trek installment’s grand designs, which obviously includes screenwriter Robert Orci (who’s written for Star Trek 11 director JJ Abrams via Alias)- and you know he’s not talking.
