Damon Lindelof, the guy I refer to as #Lindelofed, a new word on the horizon of twitter trending, the guy I publicly invite to a Cappuccino, the guy who likes to talk a lot of shop and today that shop is a cheap drive through into the mind of Trek. Today News comes forth via MTV land that the writers behind the second installment of Star Trek in J.J Abram's soon to be updated resume are not "not waffling" around on key decisions such as the movies villain, who will not be a Borg or Khan, maybe.. Hit the jump for the details.
Lindelofed: "We know what the movie's about, we know what the key relationships are, what the stakes are, who the bad guy is...or girl...or Borg. No Borg. No Borg. We can rule out Borg."
MTV pushed the writer to the wire through its guise of subtle come hithers.
Lindelofed: "To Khan or not to Khan was the jumping off question and we actually put a big list up on the board: pros and Khans, because it's a pun, and sort of weighed it all out and had a big debate and came to a decision, and once we came to that decision we stuck to our guns."
Lindelofed: "The first movie was designed as a buddy cop movie, they're Riggs and Murtaugh. So the idea that pure emotion and instinct can actually pair quite nicely with a logical brain as long as in that Venn diagram they find the same traits in each other. That's definitely a huge theme of Trek and one that you cannot abandon, it has to keep moving forwards, it'll certainly be a big part of [the sequel], but I think the sequel is also going to want to explore other relationships in the movie and certainly characters who were more in the background get to shine a little bit brighter in the second movie."
