Re: Concept for the Movie We *Should* Have Had Instead of Nemesis

Once I get past my initial distaste of the idea of the Borg assimilating Q, I actually think it's clever.

I did go back and re-read it later, and couldn't tell if you were serious or just taking the piss.
The proposal was for a 4 hour Star Trek movie with a $2 billion budget, and you couldn't tell if the OP was serious?

And then, we either have him resign for the reason you stated at the end of the movie, or, we have Q turn him into a quarter-Betazoid/three-quarters human baby *inside* of Troi so he can live out a full organic life as Riker and Troi's kid. Because as everyone knows, Deanna just can't get enough of having her body invaded by aliens with strange powers, especially if they also leave babies with bizarre attributes while they're at it.
Q went to the wrong girl to try and get himself laid in "The Q & The Gray".

Janeway is just a prude.

But Deanna would have been totally up for it!

The movie should include every actor and actress (still living) who has ever appeared on Star Trek in any capacity, all the background extras and stunt people as well.

This movie wouldn't back its catering budget.

I'm a horrible person, because I love Scotty and loved James Doohan, but my very first thought was, "No, it would, Scotty isn't around to drive the costs for that up that much."

If, by this, you mean that we should include every character that Michael Bell (the actor who played Groppler Zorn) has ever acted or voice acted somewhere in the movie, then yes, I agree wholeheartedly.

4 hours long with a 6 hour director's cut,
Good luck in finding an exhibitor company (AMC, Cineplex, Cinemex, Gaumount-Pathe, TCL Chinese Theaters, Cathy Organization, etc.) willing to have any of their multiplexes even want to distribute a 4 hour movie (most of them have a limit of 3 hours.) How would the theater in question be able to keep it's workers going for the time this movie runs? It would have to be open 24 hours a day for this to even work.

Addendum to the OP: Every theater in the world, including those in countries that normally censor western media, will stay open 24hrs/day for 3 months showing this film, and it will also be shown on screens at the Apollo and the Grand Ole Opry, and NORAD will open its doors to the public to show it on those big screens that WOPR was playing games on in "Wargames". 3D showings will include glasses that look like VISORs that you get to keep and that can actually restore a kind of sight to blind wearers, just like Geordi's.

Are you happy now? Let's see Lucasfilm top THAT for Episode VII.

Oh, Lucasfilm can top that, with just two words:

Kill. Jar-Jar.
