Re: Speculation: Must the villain be Gary Mitchell, or... ?
I've been saying since we first saw Cumberbatch fighting Spock that I think he is playing a Klingon infiltrator. I can't imagine a movie called Into Darkness about a more personal-level villain like Khan or Gary Mitchell when the producers have said that the events of this film will thrust "everything" into a darker light a la Empire Strikes Back. Klingons are a galaxy-level threat..
What do you think about this ship? There is a number. My guess it is a Earth Ship, and maybe an old ship.
