I dunno, I guess I just think TOS should be good enough on it's own without having to pull from later TNG+ material. It's fine with cameo appearances, but as a major antagonist? The Borg again?
By the time Star Trek 2016 hits theaters, it'll have been twenty years since the Borg were seen on the big-screen.

For the 50th Anniversary, I'll imagine they will want to put on a show.
Neither the Gorn nor the Tholians have ever made it to the big screen! I'm tired of Space Zombies!

Yup.

But I think nuBorg are going to be some kind of mix of Classic Borg, Terminators, and Cylons.

Re: Star Trek III - The Vengeance Of Khan

IMO using TNG era antagonists in an OS reboot would be a waste. There are many, many TOS threads left to pick up and weave together so why not save the Borg for TNG reboot?

I also wouldn't go with Khan again so soon. Over the course of the next few films, let the events of ID slowly stir up the best of the regular OS species to the point of all out WAR then unleash Khan forcing them all to work together against a common foe. [/fanwank]

The next one could very well be the last one for this team. Or at least for a lot of them. Contracts are ending, new negotiations will have to be made.
They don't really have the luxury to leave things for other future possible movies.

There will never be a TNG reboot.

Picard and Kathy were never the right adversaries for the Borg, anyway.

I heard someplace that had Trek 2009 not gone as well as expected, they would have tried to move on for a TV series.

I'd be in. It's been so long since Trek put their focus back on the TOS era that it would be a treat to see something like this every week!

Why? TNG and its spin-offs played with TOS toys all the time.

People have been wanting to see Kirk vs. the Borg since Q, Who.
I haven't. The Borg is to Picard what Khan was to Kirk. Leave the Borg alone....PLEASE?!

The Tholians...Andorians...Klingons...Romulans...Telle rites...YES PLEASE!

The Borg?...HELL NO!

TNG has never held a monopoly on the Borg.

Umm, I feel like it's obvious that the next chapter of AbramsTrek would revolve around the freaking Klingon War they started.

I won't lie, I'd be very curious to see how they'd do the Borg.

Re: Star Trek III - The Vengeance Of Khan

Can we get a real romulan movie and not what we got in Star Trek 2009? I would love to see the Romulans again, since throughout the franchise, they're not really featured that much.

Please, no Andorians! They were so perfectly made in Enterprise, they can't get any better than this. I'm afraid they would completely ruin the Andorians with their obsession to "re-imagine" everything.
