Default Sequel like BTTF2?

Quote:
The team has "reached consensus" on the elapsed (in universe) time between Star Trek and the sequel, but they will not reveal that detail now
Cites time setting of Bourne Ultimatum, which takes place party during the events of the previous film Bourne Identity as something he admires, noting "one of the things we like to do as story-tellers is drop you in the middle of something and the question you are asking yourself is ‘where am I in relation to the last time I left these guys? Could this be something that pre-dated some of the adventures they had in the first movie? Does it happen five years later? Is it happening two seconds later?’ We are not going to tell you"

As long as it's not more time travel. I'd prefer if they leave that on the shelf for awhile.

On the surface it doesnt sound like a good idea. But then again on paper 2001 doesnt look very good either.

I liked that about BTTF2, that it took place in different times and even parallel to the first movie

It's intriguing at least - but it doesn't have to involve Time Travel at all. The Bourne Ultimatum had none, but it played around with what audiences believed they had seen at the end of The Bourne Supremacy.

We do know that near the end of the film there is an unspecified time cut between the Enterprise fleeing the Black Hole and the scenes where Old Spock/Young Spock meet take place and Kirk gets his promotion.

Many have theorised about how long this period could have been, because a few things had to have happened during it.

It's possible a story could be partly intergrated into that unknown time frame.

They have their own set of interests that recur - not unlike Bennet/Meyer preference for the overt militarisation of Star Trek in the films.

There is a difference between emphasizing the navy side of Starfleet (instead of the hippie-loveboat side The Rodd liked :P) which has been a distinctive feature in all Trek incarnations that have succeeded TWOK and recycling your few themes in all kind the movies and TV shows you do over and over again.

But hey, the audience is too dumb to notice, they make a sh*tload of money, who am I to blame them.
