Pretty sure they would recast Q, easy to do as he can change forms.

Well, Damon Lindelof has given an interview about the next movie, and he's being very uncharacteristically direct for Abrams & Company. He says, straight up, that they have a plan for the next movie and that it involves the Klingons. He also says that they would be "incredibly stupid" not to use Benedict Cumberbatch again. So I think it's fair to say at this point that the current plan is to see both Khan and the Klingons in the next film.

Lindelof also goes on to say that two of his favorite adversaries from the Trek universe are Q and the Borg and that he would like to see them. But he says that's farther down the line, "towards the end of our run on Star Trek." That statement, to me, implies two things: First, he sees their run on Trek extending beyond the three films and, second, that after they do the Klingons, they're likely to do Q and/or the Borg.

I wouldn't read too much into any of this. I'm sure we all remember the numerous red herrings that cast members and the JJ-brains-trust threw out in-between ST09 and STID. Besides, Lindelof said himself that he won't be involved in the next film.

No doubt too unoriginal, but the Borg could always assimilate Alice Eve into Locutus 2.0.
I can just see it.

Borgs are cool. Klingons are cool. But, how about something entirely new? I want a villain never seen, a villain nonhuman, threatening, something like V'Ger. Not V´Ger, of course.

But if they want to copy the Doomsday Machine would be very interesting,

He's also probably immune to the changes in the timeline, which could make for some interesting conversation.

Holy crap who would be a good Q? Delancie is charismatic but does he have big screen chops?
James Callis as Trelane would be nice.

I really don't want a star that's big enough to require script approval.

I dunno, Star Trek could use some A-listers, couldn't it? Maybe they'd have to find one who is more enthusiastic about Trek, like Tom Hanks (although is he considered A-list anymore?). I don't know how Johnny Depp feels about it, but he would be pretty awesome to see in any role.

Omigod, yes, please. (I mean, I agree with BillJ that the writers should be the ones making the scripts, but assuming that can be addressed, omigod, yes.)

Agreed.

Or a star big enough to suck out a substantial (and disproportionate) chunk of the budget.

Problem is, that would make Depp the lead of the movie rather than Pine or Quinto.

Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)

Nah. Just have the credits go "and Johnny Depp". Plus neither of the other films run credits before the story, so why would it matter. And it worked fine in the first Burton Batman movie with Nicholson as the Joker.
