I'm a huge Star Trek fan and the first one was such a massive disappointment.

It was an awesome sci-fi movie...but it just didn't feel like Star Trek. I don't know why they had to use the same characters they started with 50 years ago. It's sort of against everything Star Trek tried to do.

Will probably still watch this one, but not at the movies.

Unless it's in 3D. That would be awesome.

Damon Lindelof on Star Trek 2

IGN: What's going to set Star Trek 2 apart from the original?

Lindelof: I think that the first one was in a lot of ways an origin story. It was about how the crew comes together and a love story between how Kirk met Spock. How this emotional guy who thinks only with his heart befriends this logical guy who thinks only with his mind. And this next movie is about what it's like now that these people are a crew.

IGN: Is it nice not to have to introduce everyone all over again?

Lindelof: Yes. And I also feel like just figuring out the time travel of the first movie - we had to put so much time and energy, and invoke screen time and energy into explaining the mechanics of what we were doing, it's just such a relief not to be burdened with that stuff in the second movie and just be able to plough forward and do new things without having to explain what their connection is to the original time-line. That was a lot of fun too.

IGN: How is Captain Kirk different this time around?

Lindelof: Kirk is now in the Captain's chair, for the first time, not having shanghaied it. And he has to learn how to manage his responsibilities as a captain with these friendships and relationships that he's forming with these people around him. And I think also we're introducing what is a very cool and nuanced force of antagonism that's a little different from the first movie, which was just a steaming Romulan ball of rage that needs to be stopped at all costs.

IGN: So who is that villain?

Lindelof: Are you insane? I'm not going to tell you that!
