Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.
I know this has been said a zillion times in this thread alone, but Marcus wasn't motivated by revenge. He ordered the murder of Khan (and sabotaged the Enterprise) to start a war with the Klingons. He then tried to destroy the Enterprise himself when this plan failed, to cover his tracks. His motivation there wasn't revenge -- it was self-preservation.
Some people are convinced the movie is about revenge and no amount of proof to the contrary is going to change that.
