Star Trek XI is days away its worldwide release, but already talk of a sequel has begun.

Co-writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci and producer Damon Lindelof are considering the future after Star Trek XI, according to Comingsoon.net.

The three have already signed up for a potential sequel and begun early discussions with Director J.J. Abrams. “Alex, Bob and I are going to be writing it together,” said Lindelof. “We’ve started preliminary talks with J.J., but obviously it’s almost jinxing it to get too far down the road. We want it to come out, we hope it does well, and then we’ll take it to the next year. We’re a little curious as to what the audience wants. We’ll start to get a sense of what they are responding to in the movie. We want to write it for them too.”

“We’re hoping sequel,” said Kurtzman. “We had the amazing privilege of falling in love with these characters all over again. The idea that we would let them go now seems inconceivable. We can’t wait. Hopefully they will let us do one.”

Orci agreed and acknowledged Star Trek fans. ” Fans have been so important,” he said. “We genuinely mean it when we say we want to wait and see what they think of the first movie. We want to see if we are lucky enough to get a demand for a second movie. Lets see what our fan consultants say.”

If a sequel is made, expect surprises. “Our approach to those stories will be from an entirely different angle,” explained Lindelof. “Hopefully the old fans will go ‘Oh, wow. That looks familiar to me.’ But then suddenly we zig instead of zagging. Or we warp instead of going impulse power. That’s what is exciting about doing this.”
