Again I must ask, what would the two of you want as director and writer for the two movies if it wasn't Abrams, Orci & Kurtzman?
Ideally? John Sturges and E. E. "Doc" Smith, but they're both long dead.
Holy shit, that far back?

If possible, I'd ask for Steven Spielberg, with Syd Mead doing the designs of the Enterprise, and I'd have San Francisco designed to look like Coruscant. But, that's just me.

I'd also have the women wear pants instead of skirts.

I'd have all the women beautiful and naked, but that's not going to happen either.

A series of clips showing the people around the world reacting to the news of Vulcan getting destroyed with a Guinan cameo somewhere in it delivering a one-liner.

Doesn't fit anywhere in the film, but it would have been awesome.

On the other hand, a reaction to the distress call would fit and would be more in Guinan's purview of being sensitive to any major disruptions in the timelines.

^ I don't think Guinan had been in and out of the nexus at that point, so no powers.

But is the nexus where Guinan acquired that ability? Or is it natural to some members of her species?

Picard attributed it to her species in Yesterday's Enterprise. I have no recollection about Generations apart from a disturbed guy named Sauron or something, what's a nexus?

Re: You know what I wish we saw in Star Trek 2009?

I always attributed Guinan's ability to her species too, but there's also the following...

It was unclear if Guinan's special abilities and perceptions in regard to time and her ability to perceive Q were completely the result of her lineage, or if they were an extra side effect of her experience with the Nexus. According to the novel The Buried Age, Guinan's abilities were due to the echo of her left within the Nexus. This concept originated in an unfilmed scene in the Generations screenplay.

Not canon, but it was interesting enough to go by.

If you're going to insult us lowly plebs, at least be knowledgeable enough to know that it's no longer known as "ADD" but "ADHD-I." Hasn't been called that since 1994.

I don't think it was really meant as an insult aimed at anyone here or at anyone in particular—the pacing of the average movie of today does tend to be more brisk than was typical of the films of Sturges' time, after all— but I'm sure the interest in nomenclatural accuracy will not go unappreciated.

Or as my father calls it "NPA" (not paying attention).

I heard ADHD when I was diagnosed (but I wasn't paying that much attention), but not the -I.

Is that like the -R in TOS-R?

Also, I'm used to seeing the ADD ref because it has been used about 7 million times with respect to the editing on QUANTUM OF SOLACE.

EDIT ADDON: Y'know, just occurred to me. Maybe not hearing about the -I is because I've had to be back with Kaiser for the last decade? God knows, they certainly were behind the times in the late 80s/early 90s, when I kept falling asleep in early afternoon at work and was begging every doctor for a diabetes test ... they told me to buy 'How to get control of the time in your life.' (when I finally got Blue Cross, they instantly found I was pegged off the charts diabetic (for months the meter almost always read HI, which is what you get when your blood sugar is over 600.)

The mind meld scene was fine as it was, it merely served to illustrate Old Spock's presence in the story, adding insignificant characters like La Forge into the scene does nothing for the story and only to appease those who look for references to old trek episodes.
