Who were the choices for "actually it's one of them"

I forget who said it, but last year someone from the movie said the villian could be (five names), and then said, actually it is one of them.

I was just thinking about that and wanted to know who those choices were. I tried to do a search but all the words "actually its one of them" are generic words and the search tool automatically removes them, so I've been left with no choice but to create a new thread.

Excellent. Thanks!

"Itís definitely a character that will make fans of TOS excited. Think along the lines of Harry Mudd or Trelane or Gary Mitchell or the Talosians or the Horta. Actually itís one of those that I named. "

Harrison being Harry Mudd would be far too anti-climatic.

Say it were one of two from the pictured choices; Mudd or Trelane. Which do you get more excited about?

Re: Who were the choices for "actually it's one of them"

At this point, I'm leaning toward prefering that They just leave it as a new character...

Wouldn't mind seeing another TOS figure as a minor character in the movie though... like Mudd.

a Gary Mitchell in star fleet who possibly never made it onto the Enterprise in this time line could make sense.

Nah, we've been through that one. They wouldn't have bothered approving, then wasting, the character for the IDW comic. Only to have to reintroduce him.

Im less certain about it than I used to be, but I did bring up why appearing in the comic may have made it more likely, not less. Also if that statement made by the source is true, it's not Khan and the other choices seem not to fit what we've seen of the movie so far.

I'm still sure it's not Khan though it may be related to Khan in some way.

Harry Mudd.

I figure it would be a new take / re-imaging of him.
So instead of a fat jolly con man....he would be a dark, saddistic, terrorist and an arms dealer for any world that would pay the right price...even if it was to a civiliazation that was pre-warp and shouldnt have futuristic weapons, i.e. how countdown is playing out

Have they actually shown Harry in the comics yet.
I know about his daughter, just wondered if He's shown up yet.

As a con man, it would be just like him to assume another name to fool the authorities.

Doesn't seem as far fetched as Khan at this point either.

Was Harry considered to be 'British English' in TOS???
