They're mining Elaan of Troyius for plot ideas as we speak.

Vietnamese works. For whatever reason, the Twin Cities wound up with the largest post-war Hmong community in the US. So growing-up I pretty much ran into them every where. The girls were all absolutely stunning.

I can think of worse episodes to mine for ideas.

Omega Glory. That should go over well with Hollywood's Chinese masters.

As much as I like The Omega Glory, I don't think it would go over well in China.

Given that the Chinese market had the strongest opening weekend outside the US, it could very well indicate it will end up as number two worldvide. This is a new situation for Trek, which generally has been most popular in the English-speaking world.

Do you think Paramount will ask Abrams and his team to include a Chinese character played by some well-known Chinese actor or actress?

Or maybe give Sulu more to do?
Why? I'll just want to watch the movie again an hour later.
