Re: What homages to ST-Prime shows/films do you WANT to see in STID?

Assuming you mean Jerry Goldsmith's TMP theme, since that is tied so closely to TNG these days I doubt we'll hear it in a movie related to TOS again.

I'm not a big fan of recycled lines. It always just comes off more like parody than homage, especially if used excessively and blatantly. I actually didn't mind most of the ones in 2009, but I think some of the Kobayashi Maru stuff was a bit much.

Especially with a line like "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Or the one." that was built up through an entire film for the climax of a character arc, and then served as the basis for an entire sequel.

But they might recycle that as well, given the plot of Kirk and family and stuff.

I'd like to see a TOS Connie in the background.

I'm inclined to agree. I was actually watching TMP the other day and, yeah, it actually felt a bit weird to hear that theme in a movie about the TOS crew.

Yes, I know TMP came first, but even still it's hard not to associate it with TNG these days . . ..

Should be the kill line that Kirk says to Harrison at the end of the movie like a terrible 80's action flick.

Perhaps, but if they managed to find a way to reference Enterprise, then referencing something that's actually from a TOS era film but adopted by TNG fans shouldn't be too difficult.

Also, while I do associate the main theme that plays during the opening more with TNG than TMP, the slower version "The Enterprise" from the TMP OST still brings me right back to TOS-era Trek.

For me while I love the TMP onward Goldsmith score I would rather they stick with and continue to evolve the TOS inspired music from the first film. Allow these films to build their own identity musically from the original.

It didnt hurt the Dark Knight films to not use the Burton/Schumacer film score even in the slightest, and for me I dont want to see a rendition of the TMP fanfare as it already seemed a bit much in the recent Phase II show reel.

Well it wouldn't have made any sense in the Dark Knight films anyway, but it would make sense here.

Whats the difference? the Batman theme from the original 4 Batman films is as much the theme from Batman as the Adam West shows and the score from TMP/TNG is for Trek, why is one more valid than the other?

A character should wack their forehead while going through a doorway.

The Enterprise fires phasers at an asteroid. (cover of The Art of Star Trek).

Hikaru: "Don't call me tiny."

Pavel: "Name: Pavel Chekov. Rank: Admiral."

Jim: "What did you tell him he has?"
Bones: "Cramps."

Jim: "What was the trouble?"
Bones: "Shore leave."

Scotty: "There'd be whales here!"

I always thought Kirk whacking his head on the girder in the shuttlecraft was a callback to that.

Another one wouldn't mind seeing...

Kirk: *Vulcan Salute* How many fingers am I holding up?
McCoy: That's not very damn funny.

I want Carol Marcus to say, "I don't understand all this. Who is Khan?" Even though, the villain is likely NOT KHAN.
