Star Trek 3: Classic Trek or original story?

source: TrekToday

Roberto Orci was asked if the story for Star Trek 3 would be an original one, or if they would “stay in the classic Trek world.”

“Little bit of both,” said Orci. “Part of the fun of the freedom that we bought ourselves is that you can harmonize with canon and you can echo what’s come before, so you can do it in a new way.”


"Little bit of both". This means, recycling again.

what episode do you think should be the basis for the next movie?

This is what I want ST3 to be.

I just want to hear some news - any news, time is marching on, it's going to be one year passed from STID before we know it

It will be a remake of The Immunity Syndrome.

I could go for a big-screen version of either "The Cage" or "Where No Man Has Gone Before".

It's gonna be the whales. Gotta hit up all those popular culture references. Maybe Borg whales?

It'd be interesting to see what they could do with "Charlie X" but not the best episode they could recycle.

I hope it could be Star Trek 3: "The search for Kirk".
Why not? Pretty good chance to find and bring back primary Kirk to alternate timeline and to primary Spock.

That sounds lame. They should call it The Wrath of Khan

Ugh, there's no point in doing a reboot if you're just going to recycle stories. ST09 was fun because it took classic Trek on a new adventure. ST12 chickened out. It's like Abrams took one step forward, one step back.

Agree, part of me wants a totally new original story, but I haven't really got enough confidence the current bunch of writers can pull it off, I am also interested in a large-scale confrontation with the Klingons

Re: Star Trek 3: Classic Trek or original story?

ST3 = reboot of Treks II & VI (again).

set after the Enterprises 5 year mission. an augment worshipping nut wakes up a furious Khan (like the engineer in Prometheus) and he breaks out of Area 51 with some of his followers (most are killed in the escape) hijacks science ship Reliant which is running tests on the new Genesis device (constructed by Carol Marcus) and plots revenge on the Federation (& Kirk/Spock)

meanwhile the klingons have been plotting an invasion of the federation after the khanage in STID, led by the sinister Colonel Chang and the brutal Captain Kruge

so itd be kirk vs khan vs klingons = total Khanage!

title = 'Star Trek Vengeance of Khan'

*Guest stars- Bryan Cranston as Chang, Gerard Butler as Kruge, Gary Oldman as Gorkon, Jason Moma as Lt Worf, Taylor Kitch as Joachim.
*Cameos- Arnold Schwarzenegger - Klingon Emperor, Harrison Ford - Head of Starfleet, Scott Bakula - Captain Archer, Brent Spiner - Dr Arik Soong, Patrick Stewart - Picards ancestor, Leonard Nimoy - Old Spock (surprise!) & William Shatner - Old Kirk(big surprise!)
