Adapting a different work into a Star Trek property is the best way to go????? Uh, no. Star Trek has it own look, feel touchstones. Its doesn't need to be shoe horned in a different property to work.
The boring one, the one with Khan, the one where Spock returns, the one with whales, the dumb one, the last one, the one with Kirk, the one with the Borg, the stupid one, the bad one, the new one, the other one with Khan.
