“Star Trek 2” delayed to 2013, time-travelling Borg conspiracy unconfirmed.

For nerds, by nerds, watched by the normals too. Funny old universe.

Given the delay in sleight-of-hand-loving, hypethenate geek overlord J.J. Abrams confirming his involvement and the wait for an approved script, and perhaps because Paramount doesn’t like us very much and won’t let us have nice things, the announcement today that the second “Star Trek” movie won’t be with us until 2013 comes as no big surprise.

Paramount are having another crack at turning “G.I. Joe” into a film that you might want to see – good luck with that particular Herculean labour, folks – and that accounts for their Summer 2012 focus.  The end of 2012 will likely belong to the first part of Peter Jackson’s adaptation of “The Hobbit” and the next Bond movie, so as nobody with a brain is releasing much else at the end of next year, the second entry in the rebooted series is boldly going to a summer 2013 bow.

I’m all for waiting if the resultant film is as enjoyable as part one was and despite a lot of aggrieved chatter from the devout fans of classic Trek online, I felt that “Star Trek” was a reboot which absolutely worked and was the first salvo in a SF series that was infinitely more desirable than a new “Star Wars” movie.

Not great news for a blogger’s 300th post, but them’s the breaks.
