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

Hmm...or perhaps there is mass planetary destruction on an even larger scale than the previous films. And instead of head crushing, the new villain completely crushes people with some kind of large compacting device. Spock Prime is witnessing all of this. Then Whoopi Goldberg shows up and tells him he's actually still in the prime universe, but none of what he's experienced over the past few years is real. He's in the Nexus. And due to progressing early onset Bendii Syndrome, Spock's nexus is twisted and includes lots of destruction and death. His apparently random romantic involvement with Uhura is something he deep down always wanted. And he's in the Nexus, so there you go. But his extreme emotions due to his condition are telepathically causing the Nexus to expand and cause rips in space/time. So Admiral Chekov (Prime) is sent to the Nexus to investigate what's causing the massive rip in space/time, and then he finds Spock Prime and brings him out of the Nexus (after fighting off the body crushing villain).

How about this?

The Enterprise is sent to investigate the explosion of the Veridian star. On the way there they encounter a strange energy ribbon in space. Kirk, Spock, and McCoy take a shuttle to get a closer look and when the shuttle starts to break up, they try to beam out only to be sucked into the Nexus. There they encounter Kirk Prime's "echo" chopping wood, and he tells them about an officer from the future who talked him into leaving the Nexus to apprehend a galactic criminal.

They leave Echo Kirk with his Ktarian eggs. The Big Three then travel to Veridian III, where they witness Picard defeating Soran, and just in the nick of time, save Kirk Prime from being crushed by the bridge.
Time for Shatner to say good-bye to Star Trek: we don't need any more cameos from the original cast.

Contrivances? Sure. Plot holes? Plenty, thanks. But ... "it sounds like fun."

The Star Trek Reboot is based on the very strong roots. It's strongly connected with primary characters from TOS.
J.J. Abrams brings old Spock to the new movie. Why? For what? Is Abrams stupid?
Original characters are still valuable and they still can fix some errors of previous movies (here I mean ST:Generations). At least, they can attract old fans to Reboot-movies.

Yeesh, you'd think the smiley face at the end of urbandefault's last two posts would tell you that they're made in jest.

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

I always thought Soran had the potential to be a great villain. Or tragic hero, if you like. And then factor in how you could explore what made him a refugee in the first place... If you no longer have to observe canon, then I guess you can have an even faster Enterprise on the scene when El Auria falls. A recast Soran comes up with his plan to lure those who perpetrated the destruction of his race, into the path of the Nexus ribbon. It's simply a means of getting revenge on a few Borg cubes... A destructive force of nature he plans to put to good use. Nobody over there is aware it's also an entrance to a pocket universe and potential exit to multiple others. With a fleet decimated defending the Federation from Borg invasion, Soran gets a desperate Kirk & his crew involved in this Nexus scheme... only somewhere along the way, they accidentally wind up inside it. Which is where your Shatner, McDowell, even Stewart and Goldberg cameos could all conceivably happen.

Oh yes we do. I would love to see Shatner, if only in the way they were going to put him in the 2009 movie.

As long as Star Trek III has John Larroquette playing a Klingon, I'll be happy.

We don't need no thought control either. But Abrams and that pesky Jedi mind trick...

Should Shatner be in Star Trek III?

Oui!

I don't see how Star Trek XII/III could be anything other than a full scale Klingon war at this point.

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

New story, if any exist.

If I had to rehash a story or two though, I'd go with Vulcans trying to reforge links with their Romulan brethren, meanwhile Klingons and Star Fleet are involved in numerous battles/border skirmishes. Romulam subterfuge is discovered to be playing a part in the impending war, Kirk manages to bring the Klingons to the peace table and Spock (Prime) does the same with the Romulans. This leads not only to a peace summmit, at Khitomer of course, but a full union between the three powers. Spock (JJverse) is now an ambassador, Kirk gives his 2nd star speech and we pan around the bridge to see a Romulan, Klingon and Andorian on the bridge. Roll credits, after main cast credits we get an all too familiar flash, a familiar voice rings out, no visual, just off screen.

"You're progressing far faster than even I had suspected, your trial will have to be brought forward. You will now answer to the charge of being grievously savage races."
