I have an idea for the next Star Trek movie.
 
You know how next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past will have a time travel story involving both the X-Men cast from the first three X-Men movies and the cast from X-Men: First Class?

Well what if they did something kind of similar for the next Trek movie? Where prime Spock somehow finds a way to return to the prime universe, and has to seek out the help of Ambassador Picard to help the nuTrek timeline for something? I don't know what it would be, or how he would find a way back to the prime universe (maybe they would have Q or something). We could see cameos by TNG, DS9, and Voyager regulars.

The main reason why I had this idea is because I wanted to see the TNG crew (as well as the prime timeline) have a proper sendoff since Nemesis was such a poor movie.

What would you think of this?

This would be the first Trek film, ever, that I would not bother watching. Sorry.

No thanks, I'll pass.

I think "unlikely" covers it pretty well. The TNG crew has already had their sendoff, poor movie or no, and I don't see bringing the TNG/DS9/VOY actors back for cameos as being really workable. The characters might return at some future point, in a re-imagined version of one or more of those shows, but that's probably it.

I'd rather they simply save up for the day when a very good idea comes along for rebooting TNG era.

This.

I disagree with all replies so far. I think it's a good idea. I enjoyed the Countdown comic quite a bit so why not? A reimagining of the TNG era has just as much chance of being bad.

I like Patrick Stewart as an actor, love his portrayal of Avery Bullock in the animated American Dad! series, but I simply don't need or want to see him as Jean-Luc Picard again on the big or small screen.

Give me another five or ten years and I might be ready for a reboot of TNG with all new actors.

No.

Awful, awful idea. Remake "Spock's Brain" instead.

Pass. TNG is dead and not forgotten but if we see it again it'll be a total reboot.

My inner supernerd would love to see old and new cross over, but it'd be a bad idea. The TNG/DS9 and VOY casts are too old now and (with a couple of exceptions like Patrick Stewart) they're TV actors anyway, not suited to a big budget blockbuster movie.

For what it's worth, Brent Spiner's plan for a follow-up to Nemesis was a "Justice League of Trek" which would have used time travel to unite characters from all the series' (including snatching Data away from the Scimitar a second before it's destruction) to face a similarly assembled group of Trek villains.

I've got a better idea: Ensign Janeway travels back in time to reverse World War II, accidentally gets stuck in Abramsverse, strikes an alliance with the Borg to defeat the Klingons by becoming the Borg queen and assimilating the crew of Enterprise D in the future, and Daniels sends Paul McCartney back to the USSR to restore the timeline.

My heart says yes, but my brain says no.

I can't imagine that being handled well enough to continue to appeal to a wide audience. But I do like what they did in the countdown comics.

Re: I have an idea for the next Star Trek movie.
 
Sounds like a good idea but I don't see it working. A lot of the actors are older now and it's just a bit too far-reaching to have them make another movie.

Most importantly, I can't imagine the fallout of such a movie. TNG fans would not be happy of the intermixing of the two universes, especially if they updated TNG to have the same aesthetics as the reboot universe.
