The last time we got a Star Trek movie, it turned out to basically be a less-than-stellar, rather nonsensical remake of one of sci-fi's greatest blockbusters.

The upcoming third film in the rebooted, reenergized and retconned Star Trek series may have just set course with a title.

The upcoming Star Trek 3, will be going into things with a new director untested in the genre with Justin Lin.

Simon Pegg has opened up about writing Star Trek 3, and he’s admitted that a necessary part of the process for him is that he he needs to follow certain rules in order to respect the original series.

Star Trek 3 is placed in a quandary. How does it up the villain ante after Benedict Cumberbatch’s Khan in Into Darkness? How about with Idris Elba?
It’s unclear whether this villain will be a brand-new one introduced specifically for Star Trek 3 or if he will have some continuity within the franchise.
