J.J. Abrams Finalized Deal on Helming "Star Trek XI"

All Trekkers out there, it's time to celebrate your joy and relief that have been hold within for long. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that J.J. Abrams ultimately is one hundred percent positive to direct "Star Trek XI" and finalized the deal yesterday evening, February 23, 2007.

For quite a long time, heavy speculations on whether or not Abrams will helm the project have buzzed around among the media and the series fans. The film and TV powerhouse himself previously was only confirmed to produce the sci-fi flick while his status as the director appeared to be unclear to public, which thus led to seemingly endless talks about the matter.

In the meantime, it is also confirmed that the film will indeed chronicle the first meeting between James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock at Starfleet Academy and their first space mission as Abrams hinted last month. The man at that time was also noticed to be very pleased with the story and assured that those who have little knowledge on the hit franchise "will enjoy it equally."
