SciFi Weekend Part II: Star Trek; Alternate Realities on Lost and Fringe; Girl on Girl Action and Other Spoilers From Heroes

star-trek

Some more news from Comic-Con with some Spoilers included.

Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are talking about possibly writing Star Trek XII and XIII as a two movie arc, similar to the the second and third movies, Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek: The Search for Spock. Zoe Saldana quotes the writers as saying they are “germinating a script” which she interprets as meaning the script for the next movie is half done.

Juliet Lost

The reports on Lost are, as usual, vague and confusing. Juliet and Daniel Faraday will be back next season. Charlie and Boone will also be among first season characters who will return. Reportedly there will also be no more flashbacks or time travel and hints that the season will deal with alternative time lines.

Without flashbacks having an alternative time line seems like the most likely explanation for the return of dead characters. There will also be information on Richard Alpert’s back story (which would seem to be told best with flashbacks). Confusing matters even more, in other reports Faraday is described as “kinda dead” and Sawyer is said to give up the role of leader in response to losing Juliet. (Update: Other sources are saying there will not be further flash forwards but there will be flashbacks, including Richard Alpert’s back story. This sounds more plausible).

Fringe2

We have a new time line created in J.J. Abrams’ version of Star Trek. Lost might be dealing in alternate realities. Another Abrams show, Fringe, also revealed an alternative universe at the conclusion of the first season. Star Trek actually has shown multiple realities and we do not yet know how many alternative realities might exist on Lost. At least we have a count for Fringe. When asked about multiple realities, show runner Jeff Pinkner said there will only be the two different realities:  “our reality and alternate reality.”

Peter Claire Heroes

Next season Heroes joins a carnival. Claire engages in girl on girl action. Sylar’s personality will become dominant in what appears to be Nathan’s body leading to a scene where Nathan is shot, dumped in a garbage bin, and reemerges as Sylar. Hiro deals with a potentially fatal disease and travels back in time to correct mistakes he’s made in his life.
