Transporter mishap in a time/space displacement. He's all of them, Tuvix-style.

Re: Villain discussion Poll

I see that I'm the only one to vote for Decker. Probably because everyone on the Internet thinks it's going to be a true villain from TOS. I don't. In this article:

http://trekmovie.com/2012/12/04/abra...-event-photos/

BC says:

He is very ruthless…He is not a clearly good or evil character. He is a villain but the actions he takes has intent and reason.

To me this sounds like someone who wasn't really evil in the Prime universe. Someone who if given the right motivation could go on a rampage but could have legitimate reasons for it.
BC's character wants revenge and is apparently trying to save his family. To many captains their crew is like their family. In The Doomsday Machine, Decker wanted to avenge his crew while also preventing the same thing from happening to anyone else. He wasn't evil, but he wasn't completely good in the episode. To me, no other known villain fits with the above quote.
What do you think?

I wanted it to be Khan, just because there is such potential there. But as time has gone on, I've come to think I don't have a clue who it it is.

Re: Villain discussion Poll

Not Mitchell. The eyes don't glow, and he's hitting people and shooting them when Mitchell would be Dark Emperor zapping them.

It's either a new character, or Khan. I'm pretty sure Cumberbatch will own the role with the force of a thousand supernovas. "I have returned to take... my... vengeance!"

Re: Villain discussion Poll

Why do people want him to be Khan so badly? We've had an episode and a movie with Khan portrayed PERFECTLY. Why did they reboot the movie franchise if all they're going to do is retell the same stories? I hope like hell it's NOT Khan or Mitchell because that would be more disappointing than exciting.

I don't really see people wanting him to be Khan.
If anything, Garth of Izar seems to be getting more fans around here lately.

Re: Villain discussion Poll

"The villain is Ben Sisko."

"D'uh?"

Sent back by the Prophets or escaped, with a very different attitude than he had before (which would be later if time was linear, but it's not) and determined to find a way to stop the Dominion war before it begins and/or make sure the Cardassians never invade Bajor, for the good of the Bajorans and the Federation. But no one listens to him and he has to use unwelcome tactics to achieve his goals.

Damn I'm stupid! But that's a good way to remember DS9!

Re: Villain discussion Poll

I'm torn between Charlie X or Garth. Garth I think has a bigger fan following than Charlie X. But Garth (IMO) should look older than Cumberbatch appears. If JJ is casting for appearance, than compare Charlie X and Garth to Cumberbatch.

Mitchell does not look like Cumberbatch. And as mentioned before, he would have no need for a handheld weapon.

Re: Villain discussion Poll

You know it could be Charlie X.
Maybe Alice Eve screams in the trailer because Cumberbatch has just slapped her butt.

Come on. It's obviously Trelane.

When we first met him in "The Squire of Gothos," he was just a petulant, spoiled child.

Now, he's an angst-filled, surly teenager, brooding about the way his parents punished him for mistreating humans.

"They sent me to bed without any supper. And now... I will have my VENGEANCE!!!"

It should be clear to anyone by now that Alice Eve is playing Tina Lawton.
