I'm not surprised - just a few weeks ago Abrams himself indicated there was nothing approaching a script yet.

this is growing tiresome have they not even thought of a possible plot and story yet?

Well the filming is a year away. They most likely will get everything in gear within the next 6 months and will tweak and fine tune the script of the next 6 before shooting begins.
Us speculating about 1000 different potential plotlines is definitely getting old.

Actually, something must be happening with that script since the TBR (Too-Be-Released) Novels by Foster and others on Alternate Universe Trek have been postponed from being released. This might be either because Orci/Kurtzman don't want anything coming out which will contradict or alter what they intend to do with the characters/crew, or because of similarity between material in the novels and their script, or because they are considering using material in the novels in the sequel.

There could be publicity aspects in that it's basically far too early for it to be appropriate to reveal much. Whatever is going on behind-the-scenes could still be subject to later changes, so revealing anything right now would be likely premature anyway.

Since the film still won't be out any sooner than June 2012 it doesn't really matter.

They probably decide to rip off an earlier Star Trek film's plot and alter a few things to "appear" original. They learned the hard way, ripping off a previous Trek movie's plot(nemesis) is a B A D.

The fact it had been done before didn't significantly stop Nemesis ripping off TWOK either, nor has Star Trek been above recycling itself and other films ideas and stories over it's history.

It would be unfortunate, but in the Star Trek universe - far from the first time, either.

Heck, there are even arguments that GR ripped elements of 'The Cage' from a couple other sci-fi stories written and filmed years before it went into production.

I don't care about originiality but I neither care about the copy unless it is at least as good as the original. I have said it plenty of times, if they had balls (and if the studio didn't want NuTrek to be a blockbuster which appeals to virtually everyone) they would do their own stuff without Khan 3.0, NuRomulans or NuOrions.
Do it like Meyer and don't care much about what has come before you.

By the way, I find the topic of this thread, this "I have some news: there are no news" absurd and funny.

There only seems to be no news this weather.

Although I find it equally amusing this Balls stuff keeps rearing it's head as well. Meyer didn't have as big a pair as one might believe and let's not forget Harve Bennett was also a major driver in the alterations from TMP over to TWOK. Bennet and Jack Sowards worked heavily on the ideas and some of the themes which remained through til Meyer came in and did his (uncredited) rewrite towards the end of development.

A lot of other people influenced TWOK before he came anywhere near it.
