Star Trek Into Darkness Writer Bob Orci Kindly Tells Fans To F**k Off
STID co-screenwriter Bob Orci is the latest to lash out at a critic who dared to question the integrity of Abrams’ sequel. In the comments section of an article posted to TrekMovie, Orci lashed out in defense of his effort. To his credit, the column is titled, Star Trek Is Broken: Here Are Ideas On How to Fix It.

Honest Trailer For Star Trek Into Darkness Points Out The Film's Many, Many Problems
I love how they break down the many ways in which Captain Kirk is a horrible leader, from really failing to protect anything in the universe to replacing Simon Pegg with Anton Yelchin as chief engineer. Fictional characters or no, you always want to keep Pegg by your side. Or at least I do. Platonically.
Roberto Orci And Alex Kurtzman To Write Star Trek 3
The trade says that Paramount started looking beyond the Bad Robot regulars after the release of Star Trek Into Darkness and contemplated getting X-Men: First Class scribes Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz or a younger pair of writers to pen the movie. Ultimately, they returned back to Kurtzman and Orci, who also worked Paramount on the first two films in the Transformers franchise as well as Mission: Impossible III.

How J.J. Abrams Altered Star Trek Into Darkness To Hide Its Secrets
It’s too bad it’s impossible to get an exact count on how many people were drawn in by the film’s advertising campaign. I can’t assume a large number of people went based on Abrams’ trademark secrecy, which didn’t quite work for this film the way it did with Super 8.
Star Trek Into Darkness: Will There Be A Sequel, And Who Should Make It?
Star Trek Into Darkness is a hit. Not a giant hit, and not the kind of thing that has studios calling all of their rivals and screaming "Suck it!" while guzzling champagne at 8 a.m. (at least , that's how we picture it), but a big enough hit all the same.
