If the sequel is AIDS, what does that make STID, Ebola?
AIDS isn't very funny. Ebola is not funny at all.
I agree, AIDS is not funny and should not be joked about. I had a family member die of it and let me tell you, what it does to the human body..because it becomes part of the body's genetic dna makeup so imagine...(shudder)
All viruses work that way, including chicken pox and the common cold.

But we're getting off topic.

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

My biggest complaints about these two movies: Far too many references to the prime universe.

I mean, I get that it's a parallel universe and a lot of things are going to be roughly the same, but the constant references to things like Harry Mudd, Section 31, tribbles, Christine Chapel, Carol Marcus, Scotty the Miracle Worker, Khan the villain, etc. It's all a little too much.

Supposedly they wanted to do a reboot so they could be unburdened by the rest of the ST universes (admittedly) restrictive continuity. So why do they keep going backward? At some point it stopped being cute.

They were meant to be little treats for us, the fans. Nothing much more.
