Here’s two brand new shots from the set of J. J. Abrams’ Star Trek 2.   Although they don’t tell us much about the new movie.  The photo above does suggest that Benedict Cumberbatch is playing a Star Fleet officer, because he’s wearing a black Star Fleet tunic under his jacket.  And he appears to be vulnerable to the Vulcan neck pinch.  Yup, we know, not much to go on.

This piece of concept art leaked from Paramount.  But no one seems to know what film it’s for.  And the image quality is too low to read the legend in the lower right hand corner.  However, this hasn’t stopped most from speculating, some of the films suggested include Super 8 (mostly debunked), Star Trek 2, When Worlds Collide (huh?!? there shouldn’t be any monsters in that), or Cloverfield 2.

Harlan Ellison Wants a Crack at STAR TREK 2!

The controversial, award winning Science Fiction writer Harlan Ellison wants a crack at penning the sequel to J.J. Abrams’ hit motion picture reboot.

Ellison had this to say on his website:

Yes, I would likely try to steer him toward the original film idea I was asked to pitch, by the late Gene Roddenberry and a production exec whose name I have blissfully flensed from memory (but he had been, if I recall, a hairdresser or clothing designer or ex-boyfriend of someone or other, and he kept trying to press me to include the Mayan Calendar.

Ellison is no stranger to the Star Trek universe.  He wrote an episode for the original series called “The City on the Edge of Forever”.  An episode considered by many not to only be the best episode of Star Trek but one of the best bits of television ever produced.

However, he’s also been both critical of both the series and its fans.  Which forced many on his website to question his desire to get involved in the franchise.  Harlan responded with his usual panache:

What the hell are you guys…nuts? Where’s the ‘downside’ to getting topside the radar of J.J. Abrams? This guy ain’t Roddenberry! He also ain’t the ex-hairdresser with the jones for Mayan calendars! He’s a writer I respect, whose work has frequently blown the lid off my box of surpriseability. But, then, he already KNOWS that. It isn’t as if I’d kept my admiration chained in the darkest cell of the basement of Bedlam.

It’s highly unlikely that Ellison will get the chance at doing anything on the new Star Trek film.  But we’d love to see what he’d do with the it.
