This marks the first time that Abrams or anyone from the production has disclosed any plot detail about the film.
“The respect we all have for Star Trek canon – and for a brand-new audience – is massive,” Abrams added. “The script is done. We’re now starting pre-prep, and we can’t wait to start shooting! Many more details to follow!”
Paramount Pictures is targeting a December 25, 2008 release for Star Trek.
