We’ve known for quite some time that director J.J. Abrams is planning a sequel to Star Trek—one of 2009’s best films—but fans have been in the dark as to when the next voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise will take place. According to Box Office Mojo, Paramount Pictures has set an official release date for the unnamed film: June 29, 2012.
Abrams hasn’t revealed what the new Trek will be about or whether he’ll direct it, but he did tell MTV News last fall that he doesn’t “want to approach the second film as a remake of episodes we’ve seen in the past” and that “nothing is off limits in terms of what we’re discussing.”
