Roberto Orci spoke briefly about possible story ideas for Star Trek 3.
In an interview with Orci, the writer was asked if the story for Star Trek 3 would be an original one, or if they would “stay in the classic Trek world.”
“Little bit of both,” said Orci. “Part of the fun of the freedom that we bought ourselves is that you can harmonize with canon and you can echo what’s come before, so you can do it in a new way.”
Star Trek 3 is expected to be released in 2016.
