He did a couple of turns on Chuck as Captain Awesome's dad, Dr. Awesome. He was married to ... wait for it ... Morgan Fairchild.

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

This is a long thread and I didn't read it all, so this has probably been said: It seems to me like the reboot gods are playing it safe. I think ST XIII will have as one component, the Marcus-Kirk back story.

Plenty of soap opera with nuKirk/nuCarol and nuUhura/nuSpock.

I don't actually want to see either but maybe Cumberbatch could play Q. Somehow the cosmic Q force encounters Khan and merges with his consciousness before his demise.

Whatever the plot I wouldn't mind a Mudd vignette like the Nibiru opening of Into Darkness. Though I think I'll do a spit take if they bring the Genesis device or anything else from Star Trek II/III. I do like some people's mention of the mirror universe because I think that does have a lot of mainstream recognition that it might just work.

I think nuTrek is already Bizarro World enough without adding it's own nutty evil sub-universe.

They could have mirror Kirk and mirror Spock be romantically involved and Uhura could be Spock's beard.

Or they could do something very different, (or fabulous, depending how you look at it) and have a gay person in the next one. That doesn't mean it has to be Sulu or even have that person have a love interest.

Star Trek needs more gay.

Hopefully they bring in Brainiac in the 3rd...

I hope they bring back lensflares in STXIII. STiD still had them, but not in the amount wee all would have preferred. MOAR LENZFLARE!

Khan's blood infusion slowly sends Kirk mad, and it comes down to an angst-ridden fist fight between Khan-strength Kirk and Spock, with shades of a reverse "Amok Time" and the fate of the universe at stake.

That would surely doom the franchise because then only gays would go see it or gays and people who see nothing wrong with it, the straight people would not go see it and there are more of them than gays I'd say. Star Trek New Voyages went down the tubes big time when they introduced their gay person, lots of people quit watching it. The same would happen here.

I don't know about everybody else, but New Voyages did it so badly that it just made me feel uncomfortable. It felt wrong somehow, almost like they were making me feel like I'll be the "token gay" from now on.

Have you any evidence to support these assertions?
