Zachary Quinto thinks that Spock should be rebuilding the Vulcan race in the Star Trek sequel:
I would imagine (this is just speculative), his planet’s been destroyed, he feels a real imperative to rebuild his race. But he’s in love with a human. There’s probably some potential conflict in that dynamic, I would not be surprised, and I would be intrigued and excited by that if that were the case. Again, I have such implicit trust in all of those guys: Damon, Bob and Alex, and J.J. I feel like they’re going to take us where we need to go. And we’re going to follow them whole-heartedly.

Star Trek screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman tell AICN that the schedule for Star Trek 2 is still not set:
- Beaks: So you guys are gunning for a January production start date?
- Kurtzman: We’re still in open conversation.
- Orci: I’ve heard so many things mentioned, but we have so much… it’s a matter of someone putting the date on paper and saying, “We’re starting.”
- Kurtzman: We’re in the process already. A date at this point wouldn’t make us move any faster. We’re already in it.
- Beaks: Rushing for a date always feels like a bad idea.
- Kurtzman: It can be a very bad idea. Especially on TREK…
- Orci: It’s just so effects-heavy. You go, “Oh, we only need so many weeks for ILM to [finish] that.” Then you get there, and you’re like, “Oh, maybe we didn’t give them enough time…”
- Kurtzman: You just don’t want to do that, especially on a movie that we all love so much and has high expectations.
- Orci: Rushing means more expensive, and that’s a question for our benefactors, who have to decide how bad they want it in terms of that kind of stuff. You can finish stuff [quickly], but it means more people working simultaneously. So those are, in a way, production things that aren’t just based on time.
