11TH STAR TREK FILM TO CENTER ON KIRK & SPOCK

This is a startling new development for the "Star Trek" franchise and I am very excited about the news.

When we filmed the pilot in 1965, we were praying it would sell — to think that in 2006 Paramount would be revving up to make the 11th "Star Trek" feature film would have been beyond the most fantastical of thoughts back in 1965.

I wonder what Sulu would have been up to in those early days at Starfleet Academy?

We've lived much longer than we ever thought, and will continue to prosper in so many unimagined ways in the future.
