Re: No More Wrath of Khan Homages

Are the only stories Trek movies can tell 'Khan' rehashes?
Perhaps not just Khan, but maybe JJ and Bobby have no more ambition than to remake old Trek stories, perhaps mix them up a bit. And maybe that's ok, so long as they drop the "reboot" contrivance.

Re: No More Wrath of Khan Homages

Q is original? (Twelve appearances across three Trek series.)

The Borg are original? (About six appearances on TNG plus a feature film and appearances on VOY.)

And Jack Black as Q? As a Trek character, he's Harry Mudd, but not Q.

Having Kirk so excited at the end of the movie about finally going into deep, uncharted space, it would be particularly lazy of the writers to fall back on any known Trek antagonists to drive the story. Even the Klingons. I honestly don't envy them if they are trying to come up with something to match the situation of our heroes finally being out there in the final frontier.

Re: No More Wrath of Khan Homages

No, they can use old villains/groups, but in a different way/context. Kirk encountering the Borg DOES count as something new since its never happened before. The Borg being an established Star Trek race is irrelevant. The movie that's widely considered to be THE BEST one rehashed a villain from an episode of TOS, did that make it bad, NO. If they want a completely new villain, great, but I'm not going to complain if that doesn't happen.

Jason Mewes would be a better Q than Jack Black.

With warp speeds as fast as they are in NuTrek, how is there any uncharted space at all?

Annd.. how about if he never gets Uhura back. She is now the Borg Queen for all subsequent movies and series.
Well, if nuSpock can yell, "Khaaaan," then why not something like this:

nuUhura: "Was that good for you?"
nuSpock: "oooooooooohhhh!!!" (then he smiles and winks)

Of course, Spock would also yell this line:

"The line must be drawn heeeeeere!!!" (then he turns green as he grows angry, perhaps breaks some glass toward the camera for the way cool 3D)

Jason Mewes as Q and Kevin Smith as Harry Mudd. Of course they have to meet and hang outside the Quick Stop. Old Spock walks by and then complains "I'm not even supposed to be here today!"

As long as Old Kirk can be the egg-spinner guy.

Re: No More Wrath of Khan Homages

Bringing old Kirk back would be problematic both because of the new timeline and also the fact that he's dead.

Shatner doesn't think so.
