Star Trek Dos, aka, Star Trek 2, isn't set to hit theaters until 2012. But E! News caught up with producer Damon Lindelof (you know, cocreator of a little show called Lost) at a pre-Emmys party, and he spilled some insights into what's driving the filmmakers as they work on the sequel.

"We're looking at a movie like The Dark Knight, which went one step beyond Batman Begins," Lindelof said. "It was really about something, and at the same time it was a superhero movie. We don't want to abandon all the things that made the first movie work...but we also really want the movie to thematically resonate."
