Re: What you DON'T want to see in Star Trek 3

No easter eggs or nods to Berman-era Trek (Let. It. Die.), no more painfully horrid Orci/Kurtzman dialog, no more passive-aggressive Spock...

Not yet another revenge driven madman with a huge supership who's trying to destroy entire planets ... please! Make the villain calm, sneaky and intelligent instead of hot headed and so full of hatred that he blindly does all the stupid things that Shinson, Nero and Khan did.

Many of the Trek films lacked romance. Asking for the Abramsverse swan-song to focus on the story isn't too much in my opinion.

maybe that is why trek could never be compete with this films in terms of pleasing a main stream audience.
Many Trek films finished in the Top 10 the year they were released. So, romance or not, they seemed to be satisfying audiences just fine.

The Riker/Troi romance didn't keep Nemesis from being beaten by Maid in Manhattan its opening weekend nor did it stop it from being slaughtered by The Lord of the Rings.


yes they did but I am talking of earnings.....even after 30 plus years, no trek film has ever beaten a star wars film in USA and in the global market. Trek makes money but it is not in the same league as star wars or LOTR


I honestly thought STiD would finally allow Trek to join the big money making club , raking in over 700 million at the global office, sadly that didn't happen.


but back to your questions, all films are always going to have romance. it just the way it is.

May I also add that maid in Manhattan and lord of the rings were better and more enjoyable than star trek nemesis which completely bored me?


Oh I also forgot to add...no more films about a mad man who wants revenge at Kirk, Spock or the Federation.


Let will Shatner have his cameo, which may perhaps be his last onscreen time on Trek.

Re: What you DON'T want to see in Star Trek 3

I loved Into Darkness, really did. But I do want an original story for STIII. I'm not saying that STiD wasn't original, because it went a completely differeny way then the episode and movie that inspired, shall we say. But, it was inspired. And I'd love to see something that has no basis in any TOS episode or movie what so ever.

So:
-No TOS inspired story
-No TOS inspired antagonist
-No TOS inspired secondary characters, like M'Benga or so.

Completely stand-alone.

Re: What you DON'T want to see in Star Trek 3

Do these writers have the skills to come up with an original and unique story that will stand on its own while not being formulaic? I hope so. Revenge is a dish best served not reheated. No more antagonists that want to destroy Earth (TMP, TVH, STFC, ST09, STID). No more really, really big bad guy ships (STFC, NEM, ST09, STID). I want a thinking fan's story with danger yet intrigue, cunning, intelligence on the part of all of the characters and not just the hero, unexpected yet plausible plot twists, etc.

Frankly, I'm tired of the Evil Villain[TM] altogether.

By the very premise of the reboot, the films have set themselves up for exactly these elements. Everything is there, waiting to be "rediscovered." A TV series could explore "new" plotlines, but the next Trek film will almost certainly capitalize on the aforementioned aspect, just as STiD did.

Look for the Doomsday Machine or V'Ger, with a Klingon subplot thrown in (maybe sprinkled with some no-nonsense Organians).

Re: What you DON'T want to see in Star Trek 3

But how can they do original? Hell, most of literature is inspired or based on or similar other, earlier works. Originality is extremely difficult.

Fair comment, but the plot holes in the last 2 movies stuck out soooo much compared to the older films or Star Wars etc for that matter for me.

Still loved 'em both though

NO EARTH. Give the Earthlings a break, leave them alone.
