You not up for an epic film about them applying for Social Security and Medicare?

They'd have to throw a whole bunch of them being forced to get Health Insurance in order to make it relevant.

Not an episode, but it might be fun to dust off the novel Spock, Messiah! and turn it into a big-budget blockbuster. Spock goes crazy and the Enterprise is threatened by a Warp 10 radiation storm.

What's not to love?

Re: If you wrote the next one, which original episode would you revisi

First off, I don't wanna play. There was a point during one of the final trailers where I stopped hoping/guessing who Harrison was and decided that I really hoped it was a fresh story because it looked so good and looked like they finally managed to stand on their own without needing to go back to the well again.

But then I was going to go with the Space Hippy suggestion, but only if they could get the tar beaten out of them by the end of the movie.

But then Robe suggested Mirror, Mirror and even though I'm a sucker for evil twin stories, I was going to say no but then the thought of those midriff-baring minis with the thigh-high boots did me in. So:

Mirror, Mirror.

Please, no more rehash. Something new and original.

"The Squire of Gothos" with James Callis as Trelane. I'd like to see the wacky hijinks of a god-like being on a big budget.

Easily Mirror, Mirror.

If only for the four Spocks in one room. Prime, Nu, MirrorPrime, MirrorNu.

Just because.

Re: If you wrote the next one, which original episode would you revisi

They might want to involve Shatner for Trek's 50th anniversary, so "The Deadly Years" might be in order. Someone else's idea, but it's funny.

Re: If you wrote the next one, which original episode would you revisi

None. The new series desperately needs to strike out on its own with a completely original story. Rehashing old eps/ movies isn't particularly interesting. One of the best moments of Into Darkness was the very subtle nod "use the trader's ship we picked up in the Mudd incident last month". For at least two whole movies that's all they should do. Then you can come back and use TOS material and it would carry some actual weight.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman for I, MUDD. He can eat Bugles, which in close-up look very much the planet-killers. And Bugles's stock will rise just like FIOS did for IRON MAN 3.
