Longtime Star Trek executive producer Rick Berman has confirmed that he is in the early stages of planning another Star Trek feature film, though he refused to confirm that it was a prequel to any given series, nor to say whether there were other films under consideration.

Though the web site Ain't It Cool News published a report earlier in the year that a trilogy of Star Trek prequels were under development, Berman told Dreamwatch (via TrekWeb) that this was not precisely true.

"I can understand why Ain't It Cool News would get information about it being a prequel trilogy," said Berman. "That's not quite correct, although I can understand how someone might misinterpret the information to be that."

Berman told Dreamwatch that he was "very much involved" in developing the proposal. "There is a film concept that is in discussion," he noted. "It's in the very early stages of development, so it's really too early to talk about."

The original item came from the current issue of Dreamwatch magazine in the U.K. These excerpts were originally published at TrekWeb.
