Greenwood Talks Pike & Star Trek XII Possibilities

In a recent interview with Examiner.com, Bruce Greenwood chats about the possibilities in Star Trek XII as well as what he would like to see from Captain Pyke, uh, I mean Pike.

What have been some of your personal observations of the "Star Trek" phenomenon?

My personal experience with people who’ve had a long history with "Star Trek" has been really fantastic. They’ve been really supportive and easy to talk to. If they have questions I can answer, great. If they have questions that are too subtly informed by the details of lore of "Star Trek," I just have to beg off in being able to answer it. Nobody says, "If you can’t answer question A-9, we’re going to remove the support." Everybody seems really excited.

I went to Calgary a couple of weeks ago, and they brought in 350 people from the town of Vulcan, Alberta. They have long been devotees of all things "Star Trek." … It was great to be there and a thrill to hang around with them for a couple of hours.

Everybody’s expectations [of the 2009 "Star Trek" movie] were very high. Everybody was worried that it was going to depart from many of the things they know and love. And, of course, it doesn’t.

I have to ask an obvious question. What do you know about plans for any sequels to the latest "Star Trek" movie?

They’re bouncing around story ideas right now. I think, from what I gather, the intention is start shooting next summer.

What would you like to see happen in any of the sequels?

I think these guys are clever enough to do at least two more and have the final one do a really hard dovetail into the beginning of [the storylines] for the original ["Star Trek"] series. My expectations are very high for them. The only thing I’d like to see, from a personal standpoint, is the mentor relationship between Kirk and Pike to continue. (source Examiner.com)
