Orci not a lock to direct Star Trek 2016 after all?
Since May, Star Trek fans have been operating under the assumption that Roberto Orci will be directing the next film, set for release in 2016—the 50th anniversary year of the Star Trek franchise. But could it be that we've all taken a rumor as fact? According to Orci, he is not yet officially involved in the project and it remains to be seen if he will in fact be sitting in the director's chair when filming begins.

Independent productions are becoming more and more common, and the majority focus on TOS. But there are many other parts of the timeline to be fleshed out, and Alec Peters is doing just that with Axanar—the story of the Four Years War between the Federation and Klingon Empire. Prelude to Axanar, a short told in the style of a History Channel special, will premiere at San Diego Comic-Con later this month, and production on the full-length Axanar feature will follow. To keep fans informed on this production, Peters has teamed up with Trek.fm to launch an official weekly podcast.
