The writers of 'Star Trek 2' have been looking at old episodes of the TV show for inspiration.

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have confirmed writing a sequel to the 2009 box office hit - starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana - has been tough, but they have been using old episodes from the original TV series to work out where they want to go.

Roberto told the Los Angeles Times : "A prequel is a pain in the butt, but one of the nice little advantages was that you get to meet the characters as you go through the story and they get to meet each other. That's fun.

"So now you want the character stories to be good for everybody but also not just be there to be stories but also fit into the plot and be organic. We're looking at a lot of the old episodes for inspiration, still."

Damon Lindelof - who is also working on the project - previously revealed the movie will not be about "the villain".

He said: "We're obviously aware of what people are saying on the web and we're interested in it but at the same time Trek is not about villains, it's about the crew and their relationship with each other, that family."
