The big-budget sci-fi production will be the eleventh Star Trek movie released and features the main characters of the original Star Trek series.
Development on the film began in 2005, however, Abrams has promised fans that all finishing touches on the highly-anticipated blockbuster will be completed by next week.
"We're just making final tweaks to the movie - we should be totally locked next week," he wrote on his Facebook page. "Then we're going to flash-freeze it so it's totally fresh for you in May.
"I can't wait for you to see the movie. The cast is awesome. The action and effects pushed the stunt team and ILM beyond their limits. I'm so grateful to this cast and crew - and to all of you for your interest and patience."
The film is scheduled for release in May 2009.
