I remember reading that Abrams and co. thought about ending Star Trek with a shot of the S.S. Botany Bay floating in space. It would have been a similar sequel set up to the Joker card at the end of Batman Begins or the map to the fountain of youth at the end of Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End, or the post-credits scenes in all the Marvel superhero movies.
Should Into Darkness include a similar set up or tease for Star Trek XIII? I think this trilogy should be a real trilogy, not three sets of totally unrelated events that just happen to involve the Enterprise crew (looking at you, TNG movies). I want continuing themes and lasting repercussions.
I doubt it. Beside Kirk doesn't meet Khan until 8 years after events that take place in the up coming movie. Also, in Space Seed, they don't know who Khan was. On the other hand. If Kirk meet Khan some years before the events in Space Seed? Then it would explain how Khan got the delta badge.
