Are the early bets already open? I put my money on the Dominion.
I love The Dominion, but I don't think introducing them in XIII would be feasible. There was considerable world building in evolving The Dominion into the popular antagonist they became. I'd love to see them reinterpreted on the small screen, but setting them up for the big screen strikes me as too cumbersome.

That's where I think The Borg have it over The Dominion. Their premise is pretty straight forward and wouldn't require any lengthy exposition. Another consideration is average Joe Blow will be more familiar with The Borg (star trek, cyborg robots, cubes) than The Dominion (???).

Whether they can devise a story they want to tell is another story. If a certain character in XII is still present in XIII, they might have something else planned. But, for the sake of argument, we'll say they're considering The Borg. What story would you tell? What changes would you make? Standard invasion plot? Enterprise infiltrates Borg space? Do The Borg come in peace as a seemingly more enlightened collective?

The more I think about it the more I think... No. probably not.

Betting on the least likely antagonist maximizes my return when I do turn out to be right in the end, though. And besides, this is probably not even decided yet, so I can enjoy picturing what nuOdo can be with state of the art special effects, can't I?

Yeah, as long as we're putting crap out there that has nothing to do with TOS, why don't we throw in Species 8472 as well?

nuPakleds are the only sensible choice.

How astute.

Of course, it has many various elements of TOS, and so far does not include elements like say, Ferengi, Dominion, Pakleds, Bolians, etc. I mean, it could, but then why reboot TOS? Why not reboot TNG? If the Borg was really the only creative answer left (which would be pitiful), why not reboot TNG?

It's like rebooting Cheers and having an episode where they go to Frasier's new apartment in Seattle.

It's a new timeline so a number of things can appear sooner or even later than they did in the other timeline.

No. It's not.

This is not very astute.

Re: Wonder if the third film will be Gary Mitchell.......

I think the villain in the next film should be someone who, every time Kirk talks to him, immediately tries to shut down the discussion with a one-word response that he thinks is witty, but really isn't. After they cut communications, everyone on the bridge looks at one another and says "Jeez. What a dick!" Kinda like a spin on the Harrison thing, you know.

His liquid state is reflective enough to generate lens flare.
