Re: No More Wrath of Khan Homages

I think they should introduce a new enemy in the next Star Trek. An enemy, from another quadrant, that rivals the Borg in terms of power, and perhaps an enemy that is capable of infiltrating the chains of command of both Starfleet and the Klingon Defense Force.

I guess I've been playing too much Star Trek Online , but such an enemy could provide amazing action as well as advance the peace motif started in STiD. In Star Trek Online, despite being at war, the Federation and Klingon Empire has cooperated several times when facing large threats such as the Borg or Species 8472. This form of cooperation could even allow some exploration to be incorporated in the next movie, as the Enterprise and a sympathetic Klingon captain could work together to unravel a mystery in some alien ruin that may give them an edge over their common enemy.

.
There's the Dominion 70,000 lightyears away in the Gamma quadrant, though the Federation's side of the galaxy didn't make first contact until after Sisko discovered the wormhole in the prime universe in the TNG era. The shape-shifting changelings would certainly infiltrate Starflleet, Klingons and other Alpha and Beta quad powers. Though this would require the wormhole in the Bajoran sector being discovered a century earlier in nuTrek.

Parasite aliens?

The S1 TNG episode "Conspiracy" had parasite aliens who took over the bodies of high ranking Starfleet officers to subvert the Federation, a species whose identities and full motives were left unresolved after Picard and Riker defeated the aliens' infiltration of Starfleet. Perhaps in the Abramsverse the parasite species have an interest in the Federation a century earlier.

And then there were the Kelvin aliens in TOS who assumed human form that hijacked the Enterprise and sought to return to their native Andromeda galaxy, and were described as originally large tentacled aliens. The Kelvin aliens seemed to be advanced, and could certainly infiltrate the Federation since they can mimic human form.

The next one will be the Regurgitation of Spock, some Klingon relative of one of the soldiers killed in STID will come after Kirk and Starfleet with a prototype dark Klingon warship.

Re: No More Wrath of Khan Homages

Talking about alien enemies, how about the third NuTrek film have those purple alien parasites as enemies (the aliens from TNG's Conspiracy)? Heck the action, emotion and story would write itself, while the ending would dutifully set up another sequel.

In the next movie, I demand:
- a scene where Spock falls into a murderous Tar Pit
- Uhura sold into slavery by 3 hilarous Ferengi (you know what that means; NAKED!!!)
- a new Q played by Jack Black.
- a prologue on re-imagined softporn Risa.

I'd like to see an homage to STID in the next movie.

Jack Black as Q, that could so work!

In theory: AWESOME!

In reality: JJ and Bobby deny it's Q to the point that the audience is exasperated when the denials are revealed as lies.

In reality, part 2: When has Jack Black ever given a good performance since.........my God. Why even dredge it up?

They won't adapt it for NuTrek, but how would you all re-do BY ANY OTHER NAME for the Abramsverse?

Re: No More Wrath of Khan Homages

In a way, I kind of admire JJ and co for doing this, bear with me here. The Star Trek movies have been trying to find the "new Khan" for decades, and failing. General Chang in The Undiscovered Country, the Borg Queen in First Contact, Shinzon was, in John Logan's words, "Picard's Khan." Nero was supposed to be "Spock's Khan." Nemesis ripped off WOK even more than STID did. JJ an co finally decided "screw it, lets just do Khan again and put our own spin on him." In my opinion, the movie worked for the most part. Now that they've done Khan again, they NEVER have to do it again, unless they bring him back in a future movie (he is still alive after all). Personally, I'd like to see The Borg as the villains in the next movie. Either that, or a Federation/Klingon War, which would be a progression from STID.

NEM - Khan

ST09 - Khan

STiD - Khan (w/ Khan!)

It is time for a new idea for the Trek movies.

It reminds me of 1986's TVH with the Whale Probe - It was the V'ger story again. It made me wonder if the only stories Trek movies could tell were "Impossibly powerful adversary threatens earth!"

Are the only stories Trek movies can tell 'Khan' rehashes?

Re: No More Wrath of Khan Homages

Use the Borg. Kirk and the original crew encountering the Borg WOULD be something new. We know that Kirk, and especially younger Kirk, would handle the Borg much differently than Picard did.

Re: No More Wrath of Khan Homages

Q or the Borg could work if done well.

Fan backlash might be insanely crazy, but when hasn't it?

From the original series - The Doomsday Machine could be fun.
