I would think this movie would set up the Klingons for the next one. The Federation is severely weakened with the loss of planet Vulcan (and all those Vulcans) and Starfleet losing several ships and most of a graduating class.

I'd be up for Khan if they had a really cool idea. Like an unimpeachable idea. Because if it's less than stellar it'll make the fan bitching over Trek XI look like nothing by comparison.

All that shit is more than made up for by future tech that Old Spock brings with him. Transphasic torpedoes, ablative armor, and all kinds of other shit.

Khan might be interesting. They have to get a great actor though.

Re: My argument for a Kahn sequel...

I think if they reuse any TOS villain it has to be Khan! While they’re at it they can rewrite future events on 21st century earth to be more consistent since I believe the Abramsverse is a separate universe. No Eugenics wars in the 1990s or sub light ships in the 1990s-2010s that are much more advanced than we have now. Maybe in the Abramsverse Khan was actually responsible for WW3 in the 2050s and sometime after the war’s aftermath flees in a prototype ship outfitted with cryostasis that eventually became adrift, which the Enterprise stumbles upon in the 23rd century.

Please, it's "Khan," not "Kahn."

You know, as in Genghis Khan, Kublai Khan . . . .

I'd like it if Khan was a woman. Especially one Kirk slept with and discarded. Nice little personal revenge there.

Are you saying Kirk couldn't sleep with him if he were a man?

^ I don't really want to hear the fans calling the character Khanbuck or StarKhan, but I do like the idea of a woman Kirk scorned as a big-bad; provided of course there is none of that "Turnabout Intruder" business. That episode ranks below ST-V for me.

I just can't imagine anyone being able to play Khan without it being campy.

No, I said I'd like it if Khan was a woman. With a genetically enhanced cleavage.

It would be difficult, but not impossible. They'd probably need to foreshadow his reintroduction a bit for they actually do it.

I think that the filmmakers are pretending that Star Trek is in the same universe we live in, and it would be tough to explain why we haven't been through the Eugenics Wars.
OK, how about this - Kirk and Co. come across a sleeper ship and awaken its commander, GW Bush --
