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

Really, 137th Gebirg? It could be a delayed reaction. But it might not be a good enough storyline, unless he allies with the Klingons or something. But they would just want to kill him since they most likely blame him for what happened on Kronos. It would have to be some race that wants to wipe out the Klingons and tries to use Kirk to help them. As long as there is a 3rd film, I really don't care what the storyline is!

I'll wait until I see the actual product before criticizing those who may be involved or the film itself.

I meant the Shatner thing, not the "dark Kirk" thing.

I actually do like the idea of a "dark Kirk" having some kind of reaction from augment blood and could make quite a good storyline. Make the villain of the next movie out of the hero of the last. Would be uncommon in the Star Trek world, and may be extremely interesting, if done right. They could go a step further and pull Khan out of deep freeze to stop Kirk! There will doubtless be those detractors who will accuse NuTrek of raping their childhood over that over-the-top role-reversal and blah, blah, but I think it could be a hella wild ride, personally.

But for the writers to pull a contrivance out of their collective asses to bring back Shatner for the next one? Nah...I'm a major Shat fan and I wouldn't want to see that. Like I said, the ship has sailed on that one, and I think Bill was right to stay away - it would likely have been nothing more than throw-away stunt-casting. Let this new crew flourish in their own right.

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

Oh, OK, I get it. Shatner- no. But dark Kirk? Bring it on! I think Chris Pine could do a great dark version of Kirk, and have Spock and Bones frantically trying to bring him back before it's too late. They didn't go through everything they did to lose him again! And to have Khan thawed out to help them? Yikes! Then will they give him and his people that planet they gave them in TOS? That could work.

So in other words, in three films, you would never get to see a proper Kirk. Part 1 and 2 are all about hotshot Kirk becoming mature, and Part 3 would be about Kirk being bad for most of the film?

No, I want to see a proper Kirk. I'm just throwing out ideas. It is an alternate reality though, so who knows?

'Proper' Kirk?

For the original TOS movies, we were made to suffer through Kirk's mid-life crisis.

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

I was discussing this with a Voyager fan at the bookshop.
She's in the right demographic (about 20 or so) so her opinion has to count.
She'd like to see the actual Star Trek actors from VOY in the next movie. Then everyone would want to see it.
They could pepper every background scene of admirals or captains or crew in the next movie with Star Trek alumini. They'd just be extras with no speaking parts. They could be from VOY or TNG or DS9 or TOS or ENT.

^Tell her to watch Star Trek: Renegades when it's done. It's practically a Voyager reunion, minus Mulgrew and Ryan.

Star Trek 3 will be the Enterprise going into the mirror universe and encountering mirror universe Pike who tries to destroy them. In order to defeat him Kirk has to seek the help of the mirror universe version of George Kirk who still looks young enough for some reason that they can bring back Hemsworth.

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

I don't really want to see the Klingon war, we've been through that already. I think since this is a whole new timeline and the new enterprise is a lot more advanced than prime kirks, they should face a stronger adversary. I thought since Neros ship had Borg tech and it was a living vessel, according to star trek countdown, that it sent a message with updated borg tech to the delta quadrant. It would be interesting to see how Kirk would have fought the borg.
