Via Think McFly Think, here's the latest rumor about the Star Trek sequel.

The Klingons play a prominent role in Star Trek 2. The angle, according to our sources, plays up them up as a Nomadic sect of warrior aliens causing trouble for the Federation — think an intergalactic Taliban with their home-planet overrun by Tribbles. Yes, those Tribbles, here in the newly rebooted continuity viewed as "furry carnivorous creatures."

Again, take this rumor with salt at the ready. The source is the same site that reported that Warner Bros. has a shortlist of screenwriters for the sequel to the new Superman movie. Still, I'm not going to 100% write-off the site until we see how their Superman news shakes out. The site also reports that Kahn will definitely not be in the movie. If this pans out, are you satisfied with Klingons and Tribbles for the long-awaited sequel?

Star Trek is a 2009 American science fiction film directed by J. J. Abrams, written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, distributed by Paramount Pictures. It is the eleventh film based on the Star Trek franchise and features the main characters of the original Star Trek television series, portrayed by a new cast. The film follows James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) aboard the USS Enterprise as they combat Nero (Eric Bana), a Romulan from their future who threatens the United Federation of Planets. The story takes place in an alternate reality due to time travel by both Nero and the original Spock (Leonard Nimoy). The alternate timeline was created in an effort to free the film and the franchise from established continuity constraints while simultaneously preserving original story elements.

The film earned high critical praise, gained a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and is widely considered to be a successful reboot of the series. It was nominated for four Oscars at the 82nd Academy Awards and won the Academy Award for Best Makeup, making it the first Star Trek film to win an Oscar.
