Star Trek XI director J.J. Abrams left a message for fans at the official Star Trek Facebook page.

As reported by Facebook, Abrams updated the production status of Star Trek XI, which was originally planned for a Christmas 2008 release, but was moved to May of 2009.

"We're just making final tweaks to the movie," said Abrams. "We should be totally locked next week. Then we're going to flash-freeze it so it's totally fresh for you in May. I can't wait for you to see the movie. The cast is awesome. The action and effects pushed the stunt team and ILM beyond their limits. I'm so grateful to this cast and crew, and to all of you for your interest and patience."

Abrams promised future updates on the Facebook page. "We'll continue to update this page with new info and exclusives, so check back when you think of it," he said. "In the meantime, have a happy, healthy, fun holiday!"
