I have a feeling the April plotline is contained to Countdown to Darkness.
Then why is Harrison's gattling gun labeled "April's gun"? That seems a bit too coincidental, IMO.

Re: How 'bout this?

I have no doubt that April is in the movie and now I am pretty sure that BC is playing ... Yes ... An deaged April ... Cause I could have find the way how he deaged himself! And what is needed?! Yes Carol Marcus! As she is developing Genesis and we learned that Prime Spock was reborn more or less through it in ST3, BC/April uses Genisis for deage him and help his ill member of family! And in the end Carol Marcus saves the Day as Chris Pine told us in an former interview! Weller is maybe as mentioned before Admiral Marcus as he is the One which operates against his daughter and helps April in some way maybe! It was also mentioned with the New Vulcan colony would be Part of the movie so I feel thats not the strangest theory!

Because it, at one time, belonged to April?

If I were to steal the rifle that killed John Kennedy from wherever it's now kept, I'd have "Oswald's gun", but that wouldn't make me Lee Harvey Oswald, now would it? Nor would it make Oswald anything more than a footnote in a story about me, and what I do with that gun. It certainly wouldn't require him to be involved in the story as an actual character.

Re: How 'bout this?

In general, the basic premise--that you need to cast a big star as the main villain in a Trek movie--doesn't really hold up to close examination. Alice Krige had been around forever, but she was hardly a household name when she played the Borg Queen. And what about the guy who played Sybok in TFF? Or even Christopher Lloyd in TSFS. He'd been a supporting character on TAXI, sure, but he wasn't exactly an A-list movie star at the time.

Cumberbatch is the star of a hugely popular British mystery series, which arguably gives him a higher profile than Weller, whose leading man days are at least a decade in a past . . . .

(No disrespect to Weller intended. I'm just pointing out that he's not exactly a big marquee name either.)

In the previous movie, Nero has a staff that belonged to the Romulan praetor, which he got in the countdown comic. But the staff's origins played no part in the actual movie.
This can be the same case. An Easter egg for the fans, maybe, but nothing more.
