Harcourt Fenton Mudd has got the distinction, for better or worse, of being the only
antagonist who appears multiple times in TOS. I thought it was awesome that STiD gave him a name-drop.
Abrams and co apparently actually wanted to feature Harry Mudd in the 2009 movie, but the writers just couldn't quite figure out a way to incorporate him into the story (and tbh I can't see how he could be worked into that story, either).
But there's still the third Star Trek. They could
still do it..... if they still want
to at this stage of course.
Let's have a little fun with this.
Would you welcome Mudd's inclusion in the next movie? What sort of plot would you write involving the character? And who would you ideally cast to play him?
And what would you title the movie, assuming Mudd's involvement, and the conceit that every Harry Mudd episode so far has featured his name in the title?
