The "People wanted"/"what people want" thing is sort of annoying, but nonspecific enough in most cases not to be a major problem. Could have been better-phrased, though.

The "-Brett- and a few noisy others"/"what Trekkies like -Brett- want" is quite specific and unnecessarily personal. chardman, you really ought to know better than to take pokes like that, and I'd like not to see anything of the sort again.

People wanted Khan? Most dudes here desperately wanted to believe the bad guy was anyone but Khan (Gary Mitchel, Garth, etc), despite all the evidence to the contrary.

From what I gathered, people EXPECTED Khan, but didn't neccessarily WANT Khan.

No.

Cumberbatch is a far more versatile and talented actors than Montalban was. I quite enjoy WOK and I remember seeing it at the cinema in 1982. Was watching TOS for about a decade by then. And I still prefer 2013 Khan to 1982/1967 Khan. So your attempt to speak for more than yourself fails (as it does all the other tiresome times some posters here do so).
Now let's not shit on the actor just to elevate some film. For a hispanic actor born in the 1920s, Montalbans body of work in American TV and film is absolutely incredible.
I was not "shitting on" Montalban. If anything, I was "shitting on" the tiresome efforts made by some posters to speak on behalf of others when they clearly lack the mandate to do so. That is something I will always rebut when I encounter it.

Just to clear up some confusion, this is speaking for other people out of turn:

People who think Cumberpatch is the greatest thing since sliced bread only do so because he's a recent character portrayal.
And this (Ovation's comment) is stating a personal opinion:

That you get indignant about the latter while doing the former doesn't make a whole lot of sense, and I would appreciate it if you would stick to just stating your own opinions rather than telling other people what theirs are or what motivated them to say it.

Re: what do people want star trek 3 to be like

I want Kirk to talk a computer into committing suicide.

Everybody else wants the Borg, so I say combine the two: They run across a repressive 'paradise' a la "Return of the Archons" and it turns out to be the collective. They assimilate half the Federation before Kirk logics them into destroying themselves.

Re: what do people want star trek 3 to be like

I want star trek 3 to be absolutely awesome and full of witty and challenging repartee. There will be a crapload of food in it and the memoryalpha food section will grow by more than a third in size. There will be NO animals. Denobulans will abound.

Re: what do people want star trek 3 to be like

I disagree. I think they should give Kirk a dog that goes on all their missions with him. Like they go on a mission to Kronos, but it's always slightly slower than everybody else, so they have to keep waiting for it to catch up leading to lots of tense moments where you think maybe Kirk's dog might get killed by a Klingon, or an explosion of some kind.

Also, I think they should show the birth of Picard, and how he grows up to be a dustbin man instead of a Star Fleet captain, but at least he doesn't get stabbed this time, so that's good.

It should star 50 Cent as the leader of the Klingon Empire.

They should add a 7 year old kid with freckles and a bowl haircut for comic relief.

Re: what do people want star trek 3 to be like

A return to Roddenberry's Vision, his TRUE vision from the early TNG era and not his false TOS era vision, complete with preachy sermons about humanity having evolved beyond the ways of the late 20th/early 21st century. And I want a re-enactment of Tasha's speech about drugs to Wesley, played out in this timeline between Uhura and Chekov.

Since Chekov isn't 21 yet can he even drink in this pre-synthehol era?

Chekov is Russian, they don't have a legal drinking age.
