A better question: What crazy action scene do you want to see in 3?

I kind of want to see a big brawl on top of the Enterprise saucer section. Maybe it could be in Earth's atmosphere and Kirk and company could have some skin tight spacesuits instead of something bulky to make it more exciting, and easier to identify who is who. I think it would interesting to make the Enterprise itself the last battlefield of the movie. The only time I really remember something like this happening was in Star Trek: First Contact, but technology has improved so much that I bet they could take the concept and make it even more exciting.

Edit: Oh, and all of the characters would have magnetic boots, so the ship would try to do a loop-de-loop or a dive to throw off the enemy combatants, and so the action would suddenly turn vertical or up-side for awhile without the fight missing any beats.

The Enterprise locked in battle with an enemy ship around New York skyscrapers, ultimately ending up around the Statue of Liberty.

Well you did say crazy...

A Trek III style end fight between Kirk and a villain (klingon?) on an inhospitable Genesis/Avatar/Lost World jungle type planet - maybe one that's about to go boom (Ceti Alpha VI?)...

like Trek III but with todays FX/tech - alien dinos, volcanoes, end of the world destruction, ripped shirts/KirkFu

The battle Khan 2.0 mentioned, but with the Enterprise rising out of lava!

Sulu rips off his insignia and uses it as a ninja throwing star.

Seriously, Sulu vs. a Klingon, katana vs. bat'leth. I was hoping to see it last time, but they left Mr. Advanced Combat Training on the ship.

All this whilst the Enterprise is involved in a fleet battle itself, so you've not only got people scrapping on the saucer section, but they have to avoid the ships phasers going off. Kirk doing a karate chop to the neck of a klingon followed by the classic double foot flying kick to shove the guy into the phaser array as it's going off. The whole saucer is tipping around all over the place like the spiky table in Flash Gordon.

I need to stop now and have a lie down.

^ Actually those ideas would be really awesome. How about Sulu ripping his badge off while fighting on the hull and using it to puncture a Klingon's enviro-sut?

On the megaflower-covered planet Nectarus, during a thunderstorm shower of hot glowing green rain, Uhura and Carol, under the effect of the local flora's pheromones, decide to disrobe and give each other honey oil massa -

- Cough, I mean, all the spaceships going pew-pew-pew, maybe some knives and punching, uh, yeah, that'd be good, for sure...

A massive pie fight atop the saucer section of the Enterprise, that would rival the scene in Laurel & Hardy's The Battle of the Century.

Kirk opens a overhead hatch and thousands of tribbles cascade down upon him.

Tame as action sequences go, but I still want to see it.

An enemy of the Enterprise deploys an energy dampening field, and so the Enterprise crew brings out machine guns.

And the hull-top battle with magnetic boots sounds pretty good.

Re: A better question: What crazy action scene do you want to see in 3

Well I feel a little cheated out of not seeing "the fleet detonated" in STiD, so maybe do something along those lines, with the Enterprise racing to escape getting caught between other starships going up.

There's this really cool action move that Kirk does every once in a while in TOS, where he does a slamming double jump kick, it always looks powerfully hard-hitting. I think he does it in that gunfighters/wild west episode. I would love to see that in the new movies.

I want to see Uhura punch out the doomsday machine.
