Vaughn Armstrong as "Flint"

Actually I really don't care what role he plays. Just get him in the cast. It's about time he's given the chance to appear in a Trek film (and anything TOS-related) - that's the only Trek he's never done!

Someone should try to get him into a fan film at least. His first appearance in TNG: Heart of Glory made me interested in finding a picture of him out of makeup due to his performance and voice.

Re: Random stuff like to see in ST3

It would be nice to see Kirk use "protection," for once. I've oft wondered how he never ended up pissing napalm - and don't tell me it's all because of McCoy's potions and elixers. He's had more punani than I've had hot dinners, and that's just from what we saw! He wasn't a kid when we met him, either, so all of those females from 'before' have to be taken into account ... that's a lot of trim. If anyone on STAR TREK is to be seen having a condom in their wallet, it's got to be none other than James Tiberious Kirk!

Nor does that bother me in the slightest either - it's easily explained away with the timeline change, like they decided to make the constitution class bigger from the outset along with other military decisions.

Meh.

It's Schroedinger's starship.

The ship is both 366 meters or 725 meters until it is explicitly shown. The ship exists at all previously mentioned sizes until it is actually mentioned in dialog or numbers are shown physically on screen and added to canon. The size of the ship right now depends completely on plot and graphics designers.

Vaughn A. was on an episode of Law & Order: LA and was pretty good in it. He plays a guy who goes crazy at a city council meeting 'cuz they got his wife mixed up in a corruption scandal. He does what Vaughn does well: chew people out.

Re: Random stuff like to see in ST3

What if powerful incorporeal beings forced Kirk to work with a Klingon and Romulan officer while stranded on a planet. The Klingon and Romulan are knocked out by the enemy, and so Kirk takes their handheld weapons. Imagine Kirk wielding a bat'leth or maybe a d'k tahg and honor blade in either hand.

Every time you see the bridge window, you're seeing a ship far bigger than 366m. At 366m, it would take up almost the entire height and width of the dome.

Schrödinger's box, in this case, is made of glass

THIS in the background somewhere.

Re: Random stuff like to see in ST3

You almost got that in STAR TREK V, when Shatner wanted to have Sybok riding in on a Unicorn, at the start of the picture. I guess to appeal to the female fan base, I'm not sure. It's not surprising why girls love Unicorns, so much, when they poop precious gems and fart glitter.

I'd like to see the whole thing be a Red Dwarf cross-over.
