The latest rumor for Star Trek claimed that Kirk used his charms to get a female officer to change the rules to the Kobayashi Maru. It sounded simple enough, and has now been confirmed to be true. But that's not all that's new, as there are those that claim to have not only read the script, but seen some footage.
Star Trek Info
The good people at AICN have received small bits of new information for Star Trek ranging from cool to disappointing.
The bad news is that somebody has read the script and they are not all that geeked on it.
The problem with the script is all its blatant inconsistency with things in the TREK canon, not to be innovative... but because Kurtzman and Orci are lousy writers and have zero feel for Roddenberry's universe, even when attempting to reboot it. The dialogue is about on par with their past works and some of the liberties they've taken are insanely sloppy. (Forgive me, wasn't the Enterprise built in space and not Area 51?) It's remarkably unintelligent writing. (FYI: I also read their upcoming Fox pilot called FRINGE which may be the most blatant X-FILES rip off ever.
But then in comes some good news from somebody who claims to have seen some footage from the film.
I've seen some footage of the new Star Trek flick and I must say I am impressed. I am not a Trekkie and I am not working for the movie industry. It was due to other reasons I got to visit the production facilities and people showed me some scenes that showed what I would call "the Star Trek world". Let me explain.
The report goes on to discuss the importance of a "handoff" that takes place in the film.
