Despite the ending to STID, I think it will all boil down to another bad guy who wants to attack Earth again. They do want to have Earth be the stomping ground for "their" Star Trek after all.

But if it's going to take place mostly on Earth, why bother calling it Star Trek?

Because that's its name. Has been for half a century.

Next.

I don't think that's the real issue here.

Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)

I still want the Borg. New threat for Kirk. Fan favorite. With the popularity of Zombies right now, if the Borg were made scary, it could be fun. And they'd be a villain that could be hyped up.

My runner up would be the Talosians.

I don't see a lighthearted sequel though even if Tribbles or Trelene or Gangsters making the cut. So, no Voyage Home.

Give me Borg or Talosians. Or what if the Borg tried to assimilate the Talosians?

Ditto. The Breen are the most mysterious of the Trek villians that I'd love to see more of.

Tholians would make good use of 3D.

Then Abrams can do a Star Wars crossover.

Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)

Trek shouldn't always leverage itself around villians.

And as far as villians go, nothing has topped Khan because he is a human villian, which is much closer to home and the more concerning to us as human beings when watching film.

I find pale skin men in rubber suits or gagh chewing barbarians a bit dated and too abstract in a cartoon character capacity to engage viewers feelings the way how someone like Khan could.

So let's just focus on Kirk and the crew in the next movie.

I like it. However, non humonid formed principle characters [save the Transformers- and only because they were cool cars] I'm not not sure wide scale audiences would accept. It would become to, "sci-fi[ish' for mass audiences.

And the Breen are very... Star Wars-esque...

I don't think it would be that much of hinderance. It would be nice to see an alien looking alien for once in Star Trek that didn't adhere to the fleshy humanoid form.
