"People had been wondering how we lured J.J. away from Star Trek. Well, cat's out of the bag now: We never did."
―George Lucas[src]

Star Wars Episode VII: Star Trek is the planned seventh installment in the Star Wars film franchise. Following The Walt Disney Company's October 30, 2012 acquisition of Lucasfilm Ltd. from George Lucas, Disney announced that "Star Wars Episode VII" is scheduled for a 2015 release, to be followed by Episodes VIII and IX. Lucas will remain involved as a creative consultant on new Star Wars feature films. Screenwriter Michael Arndt will write the screenplay for Star Wars Episode VII, while J.J. Abrams will direct.

The film's story will be completely original and not based on any prior source from the Expanded Universe. The film instead combines the "Abramsverse" of the Star Trek series of 2009 onward with the Star Wars continuity. Future installments in the Star Trek series will branch off the same continuity, and will not follow a preset schedule or episodic title system.

In Episode VII, set circa 25 ABY, an alien entity travels to the Galaxy Far, Far Away from the Milky Way, and it is up to Luke Skywalker to seek help from its home galaxy to stop it. Spock discovers his latent Force power and Skywalker must help him understand it, as the crews of the Millennium Falcon and the U.S.S. Enterprise work together to stop this threat.

Synopsis

Note: This synopsis is based on an early script draft, and will be laced with excerpts. At this point, for reasons that have not been revealed, the portions involving the Star Trek crew are more developed.

Arrival

After the opening crawl, which has yet to be written, we pan down in the usual style to where we would normally expect to see a Star Destroyer or other ship, but we instead see a black hole. It is the Endor Gate, in the Moddell sector. After a second of viewing the swirling maw, we see the ship we expect. It is massive, more massive than the Executor.

A Corellian Corvette on patrol nearby comes in for a closer look, challenges the intruder, and vanishes in the alien ship's scanning beam. It has been digitized, and it will not be the last. The intruder turns and jumps to hyperspace.

Unstoppable

The intruder arrives at the nearest inhabited planet with any notable amount of technology, Annaj. Using the image of the captain of the first ship it absorbed, it identifies itself as V'ger, and states that it wishes only to improve itself, and that the planet Annaj will assist in this endeavor.

A small fleet of ships attacks it, and none get within a kilometer before vanishing. It then does the same thing to the planet itself. An entire planet, gone. With even less trace left than the Death Star. It starts an inexorable path toward Coruscant.

Politics

A discussion in the New Republic Senate goes about as well as one would expect. Luke Skywalker walks out in disgust with R2-D2 and meets Han Solo and Lando Calrissian at a cafe nearby. They are soon joined by Leia Organa Solo and they discuss their options for going behind the Senate's back.

Luke explains that he has already had a vision. He must go to V'ger's home galaxy, and his friends cannot follow. With their technology, only a Force-user could survive the passage.

An X-wing and the Millennium Falcon travel to the Endor Gate, but only the X-wing enters.

Crossing over

Chekov: "Something on sensors… Fighter-class wessel, completely unfamiliar technology."
Skywalker: "This is Luke Skywalker of the New Republic. I don't know who you are, or where I am, but I mean you no harm, and my vessel is damaged. Requesting assistance."
Uhura: "His technology may be unfamiliar but his language isn't. Without the Universal Translator we couldn't understand him right away, but it wouldn't take long to learn."
Kirk: "Why not?"
Uhura: "The U.T. identifies it as a descendant of English."
―First contact between the New Republic and the United Federation of Planets[src]
LukeWatchOutForThatLensFlare

The Enterprise meets Skywalker's X-wing. (Though just a concept composite, the director insisted on certain visual elements being added to this image.)

Skywalker is buffeted by forces beyond his imagination, and spit out the other side of the wormhole. We pan upward from his tiny X-wing to see the giant U.S.S. Enterprise looming over it.

Cut to the bridge of the Enterprise. Kirk and Spock are having a discussion about why they needed to come to the black hole formed by the destruction of the Narada a few years before. Spock has been feeling the telepathic call of thoughts of a higher order, leading to this point, but they have suddenly ceased.

Spock believes there is some entity out here and feels compelled to contact it, but doesn't know why, and the illogic of this disturbs him. Kirk has learned to follow his first officer's instinct, and whether this is a threat or a benign first contact Starfleet needs to know as soon as possible.

Their discussion is interrupted by Chekov's report of a completely unfamiliar vessel on the scanner. Uhura patches the visitor through, but in between contacts she notes that the universal translator is barely doing anything but cleaning it up a little. The alien is almost speaking English.

As the X-wing is damaged, they beam Skywalker to the sickbay and tow the snubfighter into the shuttle hangar.

Revelation

Skywalker explains that he has come from another galaxy, that an alien entity called V'ger is absorbing planets and every ship that tries to stop it, that it's going to reach the galactic capital within a week, and that they traced it to the wormhole. He elaborates that he is something called a "Jedi Master," and that a universal energy field called "the Force" gave him a vision that told him to seek help here.

Kirk is intrigued by the fact that this visitor appears to be Human, and that his language is so close to English. Spock himself admits to being puzzled by the mystery, but wants to pursue the alien that has been calling him.

The first Jedi mind meld

INT. SICKBAY

Kirk, Spock, and McCoy surround Luke Skywalker as he
sits on a bio-bed, patiently undergoing McCoy's scans.

                       MCCOY
         (Closing tricorder)
         Alright, Jim, I've done as
         much to confirm that he's 
         human as I can do, short of
         locking him in the quantum
         dynoscanner at Starfleet
         Medical HQ for a day. What's
         next?

Kirk looks pensive. This visitor is an enigma. At
this point there is only one option.

                       KIRK
         Well, Spock, if he's human
         then he has a human brain, and
         we both know one quick way to
         get the truth out of one of
         those.

Spock raises an eyebrow at Kirk.

                       SPOCK
         (To Kirk)
         Indeed.
         (To Skywalker)
         If time is as much as factor
         as you claim, then the most
         efficient way to confirm your
         story would be for me to probe
         your mind directly.

Skywalker smiles. He had a feeling this was coming.
He stands before Spock.

                       SKYWALKER
         I knew I sensed potential in
         you. By all means.

Slow zoom as Spock's hand reaches toward Skywalker.

                       SPOCK
         (Places his hand on Skywalker's
         "pressure points")
         My mind to your mind, my
         thoughts to your thoughts.

Skywalker takes a step backward and raises his hand in
response. Skywalker was not expecting a mind probe to
involve physical contact. Force use in this galaxy has
taken a strange turn.

                       SKYWALKER
         (Waving his hand in the mind
         trick gesture)
         Wait, you don't need to...

But it is too late. The mind meld has begun. His
attempt to slow Spock down with a mind trick of his
own has only strengthened the bond. This first-ever
"Jedi mind meld" has serious repercussions.

INT SICKBAY VFX
Lights explode, medical monitors fly around at random.

                       KIRK
         (To himself)
         What the hell...?

                       MCCOY
         (Shouting over the noise)
         We have to separate them!
         Dammit, Jim, this is a sickbay
         not a sideshow!

Finally a burst of light separates Spock and
Skywalker and the effects subside.

                       SPOCK and SKYWALKER
         (In unison)
         I... understand.

Spock's mind has been opened to his full power. After reviewing some files with Spock, Skywalker theorizes that the mental abilities of Vulcans, Betazoids, Human ESPers, and other telepaths and telekinetics are either very primitive manifestations of the Force, or deeply degenerated versions. By interfacing the Enterprise computer with a scanner from Skywalker's X-wing cargo compartment, McCoy is able to build a subspace filter into the tricorder that confirms the existence of midichlorians in everyone he scans. Spock demonstrates remarkable control over his power from the very beginning.

Crossing back

"Granted, I've done some fascinating things with this... Force... so far, but I still don't see how we can get the Enterprise back through, even if we can work in concert. Holding a ship together through a wormhole is different from holding a coffee cup."
"No. Only different in your mind."
―Spock and Skywalker, on returning to the GFFA[src]

With Spock's intellect, combined with Skywalker's natural Force ability and Spock's own new powers, they are able to navigate the Enterprise back through the wormhole. They discover on the other side that astronomical readings put them over three million light years away from Earth, but also 500,000 years in the past. The fossil record proves humans evolved on Earth, and that's not far enough back for this galaxy to have seeded them, making the existence of identical humans a paradox.

The Millennium Falcon lands in the shuttle bay of the Enterprise and the two crews confer on how to stop V'ger. Skywalker notes that no ship has gotten within a kilometer of V'ger, but no ship in their galaxy has the teleporter the Enterprise used on him. Scotty points out that V'ger is already too far away for the Enterprise to catch up even in months, let alone a week, and that while computers and transporters are ahead in the Milky Way, shields and weapons from the GFFA are almost as far ahead as propulsion, and V'ger absorbed that knowledge as well.

And Kirk, ever the tactician, points out that two ships will have a better chance of assaulting V'ger than one. So the crews agree on a trade. the Enterprise will analyze the technology of the X-wing and the Falcon and the Enterprise crew will put a transporter pad on the Falcon.

Contamination

"This ship is an engineer's dream."
"Why, thank you."
"Aye, a real fixer-upper!"
"HEY!"
―Mr. Scott and Han Solo, on the Millennium Falcon[src]

While the crews work together to exchange technology, Skywalker tries to give Spock a crash course in Force use.

INT. SPOCK'S QUARTERS

Skywalker and Spock are sitting in a meditation
position.

                       SKYWALKER
         As you exert the power of the
         Force, you will inevitably be
         tempted by the dark side. You
         must not use the Force while
         under the influence of strong
         emotions such as anger, fear,
         aggression...

                       SPOCK
         That will not be an issue. I
         am a Vulcan. We are by
         definition masters of control.

                       SKYWALKER
         I see... You must also not
         use the Force solely for your
         own personal benefit. The
         temptation to take the easy
         path is often the call of the
         dark side.

                       SPOCK
         But... to deny oneself power
         is not logical.

                       SKYWALKER
         Spock, you have to trust me
         on this. Abusing the Force,
         using the dark side... it...
         does things to you... damages
         you.

                       SPOCK
         But we already have medical
         technology that some species
         would consider magical. And
         now combined with your own
         techniques, I can't imagine-

                       SKYWALKER
         (Interrupting)
         Spock, not all wounds are
         physical. Not all damage CAN
         be healed.

Suddenly, Spock recalls images from the mind meld.
He sees visions of the Emperor. Splice in footage
from Return of the Jedi.

                       SPOCK
         Very well. I shall take your
         word. For now. But we will
         revisit this topic.

Skywalker raises his eyebrow at Spock.

DIRECTOR'S NOTE: Do we know if Mark Hamill can do
this? Are we going to have Botox half his forehead
every so often?

Having reviewed the Enterprise database, Skywalker chooses to trust, at least for the time being, in Vulcan control and logic to protect Spock from the passion that is the essence of the dark side. He fails to realize that excess dedication to logic is a passion in itself, and Vulcan logic has led to atrocities in the past. Spock has already lost his way.

INT. READY ROOM

Kirk is sitting at his desk, Spock across from him.
Kirk has a glass of something green.

                       SPOCK
         Giving them our transporter
         technology will fundamentally
         shift the balance of power in
         their galaxy.

                       KIRK
         And the tech they're giving
         us is going to put us
         centuries ahead of the
         Klingons and Romulans. What's
         your point?

                       SPOCK
         You do realize we may be
         committing a violation of the
         Prime Directive?    

                       KIRK
         How so? They're a faster-
         than-light culture. What's
         more, they're human.

                       SPOCK
         From my understanding, they
         are several disparate tribes
         of humans and aliens, not
         unlike the Federation, and
         we are essentially entering
         into a treaty with just one
         of those tribes on behalf of
         our own Federation. Further,
         we still don't know how this
         timeline interacts with our
         own.

                       KIRK
         V'ger came through a wormhole
         we created. Not just the
         Federation, but us personally.
         We have a responsibility to
         stop it. So... what? We keep
         the hyperdrive, shields, and
         torpedoes we've built from
         their data, but we don't
         build them a working
         transporter?

                       SPOCK
         That would be the most
         logical solution.
         (Spock looks away, and his
         eyes flash yellow.)

Kirk is forced to agree. Spock sabotages the transporter design so it will not only self-destruct, but would be useless even as a starting point for the GFFA to research even before it is destroyed.

Assault

The two ships pursue V'ger, and close to maximum transporter range. Skywalker has decided to transport from the Enterprise, feeling a need to stay close to his new pupil.

As the Enterprise approaches, Uhura cracks the radio signal V'ger has been constantly emitting. It's the binary datastream of an Earth space probe. The mystery deepens.

The teams prepare to transport to V'ger, with Han, Leia, 3PO and R2 transporting from the Falcon as Calrissian pilots her, and Skywalker, Spock, and Kirk transporting from the Enterprise. The Falcon's transporter fails as planned, and an avatar of V'ger greets the three who arrive.

INT. VOYAGER AMPHITHEATER

What appears to be an open-air arena surrounds a
battered space probe, sitting on top of a crystalline
pedestal. As they behold the antique, Kirk steps
toward the carbon-scored nameplate.

                       KIRK
         V... G E R

He scans it with his tricorder, which interpolates the
image.

                       KIRK
         Voyager II!

                       SPOCK
         Earth did lose contact with
         the Voyager probes in the
         twenty-first century, and
         never located them even after
         developing warp drive.

A holographic version of a Mon Calamari stands before
Kirk, Spock, and Skywalker. It digitizes their weapons.

                       AVATAR OF V'GER
         Voyager fell into a wormhole
         much like the one you have all
         recently transited. It was
         discovered by a planet of
         artificial intelligences who
         wished to allow it to fulfill
         the essence of its purpose.

                       SPOCK
         To gather knowledge.

                       AVATAR OF V'GER
         Correct. V'ger evolved as it
         learned. Eventually it
         detected emanating from this
         galaxy a manifestation of
         energy it could not
         comprehend.

                       SKYWALKER
         The Force.

                       AVATAR OF V'GER
         Correct. V'ger must continue
         to digitize and analyze
         lifeforms until it is able to
         access this Force itself.
         Unless one of you joins with
         V'ger to provide a conduit.

                       KIRK
         Hook up with a spaceship to
         stop mass genocide. You're not
         giving them much of a choice.

                       AVATAR OF V'GER
         Correct.

                       SPOCK
         There are always
         possibilities. The ability to
         destroy planets is
         insignificant next to the
         power of a Vulcan with the
         Force.

Spock blasts the pedestal with Force lightning,
intuitively knowing that it is V'ger's heart and
brain. The amphitheater begins to digitize like
everything V'ger has attacked, in an outward
pattern. Kirk, Spock, and Skywalker run for their
lives.

                       KIRK
         (Shouting into communicator)
         Scotty, get us out of here!
         (Shouting at Spock)
         That's one hell of a solution
         to the Kobayashi Maru!

They disappear into the transporter effect.

EXT. SPACE

The Enterprise and the Millennium Falcon fly away as
V'Ger explodes spectacularly. A ring of fire expands
out horizontally, and as we zoom out with the escaping
ships there is a great lens-flare effect.

INT. TRANSPORTER ROOM

                       SKYWALKER
         Spock... There must have been
         another way.

                       SPOCK
         Perhaps there was, but this
         was the most logical.

As he walks away from Skywalker, nobody sees it, but
his eyes flash yellow.

A Happy(?) Ending

"As far as we can tell, this wormhole is completely stable. It'll be bumpy, but with the data we collected last time we can make it through without any telekinetic structural integrity or extrasensory navigation, and come back any time we want."
"So that means…"
"That means this galaxy may have to get used to us, because there are still mysteries here we need to solve."
―Kirk and Han Solo[src]

On the Falcon, Skywalker is comforted by his friends as he laments his inability to solve the situation peacefully. On the Enterprise, Kirk doesn't seem to have a problem with Spock's response.

The two crews meet one last time to make their farewells, when the Federation crew explains that they may be back. They didn't have nearly enough time to figure out all the mysteries: the relationship between identical human species in two different galaxies, how the Force could have existed for so long without us knowing, and so on.

DarkSpock

Spock, deeply immersed in the dark side

As the Enterprise transits the wormhole, there is unexpected turbulence. After having a vision of a tendril of electricity killing Uhura, Spock releases a great growl of vexation and taps into the dark side to shield her. As they exit the wormhole and things return to normal, this time his eyes stay yellow as everyone on the bridge stares, and we cut to credits.

Development

Disney purchases Lucasfilm

DisneyLucas

The Disney acquisition of Lucasfilm from George Lucas paved the way for the creation of Star Wars Episode VII.

On October 30, 2012, The Walt Disney Company announced that it had purchased Lucasfilm Ltd., the production company behind the creation of the Star Wars franchise, from its owner, Star Wars creator George Lucas, for $4.05 billion.[2] The acquisition came in the wake of Lucas's announced retirement on May 31,[5] and the subsequent June 1 announcement that veteran film producer Kathleen Kennedy was succeeding Lucas as Lucasfilm's Co-Chair.[6] As part of the merger, Disney revealed that it planned to release a new sequel trilogy of films, beginning in 2015, that would include the long-awaited Star Wars Episodes VII, VIII, and IX. Lucas will remain involved as a creative consultant, with Kennedy serving as executive producer.[2]

In March of 2013, it was confirmed that many off-shoot products would be put into production to coincide with the release of Episode VII. LucasArts' focus has been redirected towards the release of the new movie, and they have announced Star Wars: The Force Unleashed III, which will tie into Episode VII.

Star Wars Episode VII has already been in development for several months as of the Disney–Lucasfilm merger. Lucas has written the story treatments for each of the three upcoming films. According to Kennedy, the development team is currently in the process of sitting down with writers to discuss story ideas.[3] According to a Lucasfilm source, the basis for Star Wars Episode VII will be an original story, rather than taking inspiration from previous Expanded Universe content, such as author Timothy Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy of novels, which chronologically follows the events of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi in the Star Wars canon.[7]

Assembling the team

"I've consistently been impressed with J.J. as a filmmaker and storyteller. He's an ideal choice to direct the new Star Wars film and the legacy couldn't be in better hands."
―George Lucas, on J.J. Abrams[src]

Lucasfilm confirmed on November 9 that pre-production has begun on Star Wars Episode VII, and that screenwriter Michael Arndt will write the script for the film.[4] News outlets first reported Arndt's involvement on November 8, announcing that, according to insiders, Arndt has already turned in a forty-to-fifty-page story treatment[8][9] that will reportedly bring the Skywalker family saga to a close in a new trilogy.[10]

Reports first announced on January 24, 2013 that J.J. Abrams, known for his work on the television series Lost and the most recent entries in the Star Trek film series, will direct Star Wars Episode VII.[11] StarWars.com confirmed the reports the following day.[1]

According to reports, Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg will co-produce all three films of the upcoming sequel trilogy. Kasdan and Kinberg will also reportedly share writing responsibilities for both Star Wars Episodes VIII and IX, although the exact division of roles has yet to be determined. Kasdan originally wrote the screenplays for both Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.[12] StarWars.com confirmed Kasdan's and Kinberg's involvement as project consultants for Star Wars Episode VII on January 25.[1]

Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Ewan McGregor, Billy Dee Williams and Samuel L. Jackson have all been reported to be interested in returning for the new films, though most actors have yet to be confirmed by Lucasfilm sources.[13][14][15][16]

During a concert with the Young Musician's Foundation Debut Orchestra on February 9, composer John Williams stated that he was hoping to get the chance to write the musical scores for the entire new trilogy.[17]

Mark Hamill commented about the sequels in late February 2013 stating that "they are talking to us" and he is scheduled to meet with writer Michael Arndt and Kathleen Kennedy. Hamill stated that so far nobody has signed a contract though there appears to be interest in the entire cast. Hamill went on to say that George Lucas would like to get Peter Mayhew and Anthony Daniels back for the new films as well. Mark Hamill feels that he will return to be "an Obi-Wan type role." [18]

In March 2013, Fisher confirmed she will return as Princess Leia.[19][20] A day later Lucas confirmed that Hamill, Ford and Fisher were in the final stages of negotiations and that all three were in discussions to return prior to the Disney sale. Lucas stated "Maybe I'm not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them. I won't say whether the negotiations were successful or not".[21]

A new direction

"It's an original story."
―A Lucasfilm source, speaking about the plot for Star Wars Episode VII[src]

On March 28, 2013, a significant amount of material was made available exclusively to the Wookieepedia administration about the plot and production of the upcoming film. It was revealed that in an unprecedented joint venture with Viacom, the "Abramsverse" of the Star Trek films of 2009 and onward would be merging with the continuity of Star Wars to form an entirely new reality. The new film, being produced under the dual working titles of "Star Wars Episode VII: Star Trek" and "Star Trek III: Star Wars" would have a budget of $350,000,000, the largest film budget in history even adjusting for inflation.

Previous fragmentary reports began to make more sense, as the "Obi-Wan type role" that Mark Hamill stated he would be playing was revealed to be as a mentor to Spock, who has discovered that the mental powers of many Milky Way races such as Vulcans, Betazoids, and Humans with ESP, are in fact primitive Force powers, while the crews of the Enterprise and the Millennium Falcon must work together to stop a threat that has come from the Milky Way to threaten the Galaxy Far, Far Away.

Future plans

"We're hoping this sets the stage for future crossovers. We're already in talks with the BBC."
―George Lucas[src]

Under the current plan, future installments of the Star Trek franchise will be set in the new continuity, and will not follow any episodic titling or specific release schedule. Future movies with the Star Wars title will include the two further primary episodes, plus an unspecified number of spinoffs. The one confirmed plotline is the fall and redemption of Spock, and other plotlines are likely to include Starfleet missions to learn the connection between humanity in the two galaxies. Further, Disney-Lucasfilm is planning additional crossovers, including ones with Doctor Who, Marvel Comics, and other continuities. This is substantiated by the success of crossover stories in comics, like IDW's Doctor Who/Star Trek mashup titled Assimilation2.
