You know how next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past will have a time travel story involving both the X-Men cast from the first three X-Men movies and the cast from X-Men: First Class?

Well what if they did something kind of similar for the next Trek movie? Where prime Spock somehow finds a way to return to the prime universe, and has to seek out the help of Ambassador Picard to help the nuTrek timeline for something? I don't know what it would be, or how he would find a way back to the prime universe (maybe they would have Q or something). We could see cameos by TNG, DS9, and Voyager regulars.

The main reason why I had this idea is because I wanted to see the TNG crew (as well as the prime timeline) have a proper sendoff since Nemesis was such a poor movie.

What would you think of this?

Complete and utter pass on this.


Time to accept reality; this is Star Trek, now and for a long while. The moviegoers that aren't Trekfans have spoken with their wallets, and they like this movie; they mean a lot than just the fans who don't (or do) love the movie for Paramount and CBS Studios.

A better idea would be to make a movie based on one of the Bantam or Pocket novels (my preferred choice for a new movie story) but that probably won't happen.

Sounds like a good idea but I don't see it working. A lot of the actors are older now and it's just a bit too far-reaching to have them make another movie.

Most importantly, I can't imagine the fallout of such a movie. TNG fans would not be happy of the intermixing of the two universes, especially if they updated TNG to have the same aesthetics as the reboot universe.
There are fans that insist that Spock Prime isn't the same Spock we've seen from "The Cage" through to "Unification" but some other old Spock from a random parallel future. I can already see the posts: Picard didn't reference "The Inner Light", so it can't be him! Sisko never once mentioned the Breen! He's a faaaaaaake! Janeway's chair is upholstered wrongly! LCARS graphics don't animate like that, OMG they don't know anything about Star Trek!

Imagine what would ensue if Picard and Janeway are on board, but the phrases "Tea. Earl Grey. Hot" and "Coffee. Black" are never uttered. It would be a disaster of unbelievable proportions.

I think them uttering it would cause a bigger disaster.

I don't think the general audience liking the new movies is a good argument against having TNG crossovers. The new movies both have spock prime in them and if the audience accepts that, they'll probably accept a TNG character showing up.

The reason audiences accept Spock (Nimoy) being there is because he is connected with the crew we are watching in action.

I think an adaptation and slight reworking of Countdown would work far better and is far more plausible. The simple fact is, other than this, I don't think having TNG actors playing their old roles would fly with audiences and I don't see any of the Supreme Court going for this either.

I've honestly thought it would be pretty interesting if they did a TV movie based on the countdown comics. Indeed.

Me too. I think it would be perfect for the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, especially if it was slightly reworked to have it be a flashback that Prime Spock has while having a conversation with his alternate self filling in the details as to how the alternate reality came into existence and have Captain Riker and the crew of the Titan including Tuvok appear along with appearances or mentions of Deep Space 9, Captain Kira Nerys, Captain Ezri Dax, Admiral Janeway, perhaps even a brief scene on the holodeck of the USS Titan of Captain Archer, T'Pol, and maybe even a mention of the newly discovered fact that Trip hadn't died but had gone undercover. Perhaps even the hologram scene with the cameo of William Shatner that Orci and Kurtzman wrote could be worked in somehow (preferably for me with the slight change that somehow or other Prime Kirk was brought back to life and survives in retirement with his wife, Teilani).

Of course, I doubt any of this will happen and if it did, Countdown is more likely to be adapted in animated form than live action.

Re: I have an idea for the next Star Trek movie.

Stewart said after Nemesis that he was done with the character of Picard, that he had explored that role completely. True people can change their minds (Nimoy), but I don't think we'll see Stewart-Picard again, and it's just too soon to be talking about a TNG reboot. We got TNG only because the TOS actors were getting too old to keep reprising their roles, yet fans clamored for more Trek. This Abrams cast has tons more fuel in the tank. We're in for at least one or more theatrical movies, maybe a spin-off TV something if we are extremely lucky. A TNG reboot is a decade away, but honestly, I don't know why anyone would go there instead of pursuing something more original.

Well... I think the TOS cast issue was less age, more money. Each movie they all demanded just a little more. They needed fresh meat at a cheaper rate.

Or maybe, finally a decent Romulan story. Give a nod to Balance of Terror? Redefine that bird of prey as a special project in response to the Narada? Show some Romulan perspective, reacting to one of their descendants destroying Vulcan?

Re: I have an idea for the next Star Trek movie.

Ripoff a different TOS Star Trek movie and include a big evil dark ship. Now we need an evil dark Klingon super ship that would be a Negh'Var ripoff since we've already had an evil dark Romulan and Starfleet ship. They can ripoff one of the Klingon ship special weapons from Star Trek Armada. They like to reuse plots so it would make since to ripoff TSFS somehow. We've already had the Hulk and Robocop kick the Enterprise's ass, who's next Michael Keaton? Maybe Hugh Jackman can play an evil Klingon with a battleship that's name is the Klingon equivalent to a Wolverine and it can have a bunch of energy claws all over it.

Terry Crews should be a Klingon bad guy.
