To JJ and Crew: From what I've been reading, A sequel maybe dependent upon performance for Star Trek (XI). If the movie perfoms well, I as a fan (for 24 years) am taking my hat off to sincerely ask that you and Paramount please put your heads together for a permanent adoption of the Trek franchise for development over the long-haul in whatever capacity may be fit. Perhaps, consideration should be given to non-conventional strategies for what is produced. Use your imagination, and think outside the box. That's what you did with this movie, and it was magnificent. If CBS is a factor, judging by what I saw tonight, surely any complication could be worth working through.



Thanks again, for the movie. It is a ride that was worth the wait.
D'accord, mein amiga!

Default Thank you JJ Abrams

For making a Star Trek movie that did not suck, appealed to wide audiences, and kept us fan dorks happy too.

Please do not screw up the next one

Thanks!

He really did find a good balance between keeping the fans happy and also getting new people into the franchise.

He also managed to balance out the action and character development well so we were not left with battles galore.

I was thinking exactly the same thing a bit earlier. And don't forget to thank Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman too. They're the ones who wrote the beautiful story of coming of age, friendship and courage. I think one of the main reasons why this movie has been so successful is because the script was written by two people who love Trek.

I just know I am gonna get a lot of flack from this, but I don't think a 2nd one is such a great idea. And I love Star Trek, And loved this movie too.
I just have my reservations about a 2nd one.

I think a generations type film, this time crossing over Archers and Kirks era (using time travel) would be great, maybe for something like the 3rd film.
