Scriptwritter Roberto Orci talked about Star Trek 2 during an interview given to SciFi (here):
We have agreed to write another one. We’re going to start thinking about it any second now. But we’re still just having a mental sorbet before we jump back in. And, you know, just seeing all the reactions to the movie. We want to make sure we take it all in and really figure out what worked and what didn’t and proceed from there. But now that we have… an open canvas, … anything can happen.”
It sounds like like Orci feels he has more freedom than before thanks to the success of the first film. Good then! because I definitely want him and Alex Kurtzman to explore their own take on the Star trek franchise!

I definitely accept to say goodbye to grandfather’s Star Trek. I hope that the movie Star Trek 2 will keep rejuvenating the show canons and boldly go beyond!
