It's better, more original, and more evocative the The Dark Knight Rises

At the end of the day how much I love the film will have nothing to do with the title.

I do think Star Trek: Darkness is better. Kind of goes with the other one word titles, Insurrection, Nemesis, Generations.
And that's precisely why your idea is worse. The whole point of the new film franchise is to distance Star Trek from those three clunkers that nearly killed the film series a decade ago.

Re: Star Trek 2 Has A New Title?

^ Good point. Making it sound more like the earlier movies kind of defeats the point of rebooting the series.

Star Trek has dabbled in a bit of shadow now and then but it's never been dark and gritty. If this movie is dark and gritty I will be shocked (and pleasantly surprised).

Re: Star Trek 2 Has A New Title?

I don't know about "gritty," but it's certainly gotten dark on occasion. Just look at "The Conscience of the King," which is all about genocide, guilt, revenge, murder, and madness . . . .

And that's just the last episode I watched!

So Star Trek: Insurrection?

that there will be a black ops star fleet group led by a revived khan (not revived by Enterprise in this timeline) that goes horribly wrong (think they said he had ignited war with Klingons or something) and Kirk is sent ( like Martin sheen in apocolypse) down river (space) to stop him (terminate his command)
That could work for me.

Sorry brothers, no link
Saw it over at ain't it cool I believe after Latino review first confirmed it was khan. If you search trek over there maybe you can find it. Was reported by the guy there who first reported the destruction of Vulcan rumors
