The scribe wrote the first film's screenplay with Alex Kurtzman, and admitted at WonderCon this weekend that he often turned to fans for their opinion on where to go with the sequel.
"You start to incorporate people's opinions," Orci said, according to Coming Soon. "If it's organic to the story and you find someone who doesn't think too highly of Kirk because he maybe skipped a few steps, that's maybe a fun thing to consider.
"That comes from a fan reaction and maybe gives you a story point."
The writer also said that one of the most common complaints about Star Trek was the limited screen time of some of the main characters, and admitted that this is something that he intends to remedy for the sequel.
"Because that was an origin story for Star Trek, everyone had to come in at a certain point," Orci explained. "Now everyone is going to be there from the beginning, so they're going to get that."
Orci also confirmed that Star Trek 2 is expected to begin production this autumn for a release in June 2012.
