Where will the Enterprise crew boldly go?
In an interview with the Humans from Earth podcast, Star Trek 3 director Roberto Orci said that the next installment of the franchise will take place in deep space.
Orci stated, "[I]n this movie they are closer than they are to the original series characters that you have ever seen. They have set off on their five-year mission. So their adventure is going to be in deep space."
Orci is co-writing the film with Patrick McKay and JD Payne. The new film is currently due out sometime in 2016.
