Partly because I find Zoe Saldana very irritating to watch; but mostly because the character of Uhura needs proper development, not simply there as a "love interest" (also how they got together and the sway she has over him bugs me as well).
BUT we all want Spock to be swayed. That was the point of every great Spock story, how he was swayed..

If anything more time needs to be given to the three-way bromance. There have been Kirk/McCoy moment and Kirk/Spock moments, but Kirk/Spock/McCoy moments have been very light--especially seeing as it was the core relationship of TOS.
Of course being swayed by Kirk is better.

Hasn't Star Trek III already been done?

It should have Spock yelling "Romulan Bastard, you killed my Mum!"

Bring on the bromance!

Did McCoy even snipe at Spock once in STID?

But he was never blackmailed for banging a cadet though

Especially with the way they both look now

Not in my recollection, though he might've after they started shooting from the TWOK script.

1) Original stories. No rehash.

2) I may be in the minority here but I'd like to see more of the federation. More ships. More of the different designs. More of the inner workings of the federation (assuming it's well done and not another the-federation-is-corrupt storyline).

3) And most importantly: I'd like to have the technical and canon advisers have some real authority. When a writer/director/producer suggests transwarp beaming or says that 78 decks seems more dramatic, the adviser gets to smack 'em upside the head and make them go sit in the corner.

Also, 4) throw a bunch of money at Rick Sternbach and get him to do a big batch of ship designs. Man, do I miss his stuff.
Zzzzzzzzzz...

Canon and tech details simply aren't important to drama.
Oh, right. Tell that to the writers and producers of ER and THE WEST WING. Nothing says science fiction can't be given the same attention to detail. Tech and drama can work together in the right hands. Go rent the original FAIL SAFE and tell me the tech isn't important. They made tech and fabulous character drama work in 1964 and a smart writer can do it today.

I was talking more from the angle of making sure minute details match up from production to production.

I wasn't trying to make the work the behind-the-scenes folks do sound less than important. I just worded the post in a sloppy manor.

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

Star Trek: The next movie will probably be a reboot. Hopefully the new creative team will do a better job than J.J. "I love lens flare more than Trek" Abrams. The Prime universe is dead (outside of books and the garbage that is Star Trek Online).

You really need to unclench...

Bad Robot will be producing the third Trek film.

That hasn't been confirmed yet (it's also highly unlikely since Abrams and company are gearing up for Star Wars) and a lot can happen between now and 2016-2017.

Paramount has already said Bad Robot is making the third film.

You do know that more than one person works for Bad Robot, right? But hey, keep hanging on to that dream.
