    When I first read that I was honestly expecting that we would see Starbase One blown up, and have ships crashing all over Starfleet as a result. Including the one being featured in the trailers at the time. :lol: Amazing how wayyyy off certain assumptions can be from limited media.

    The original idea was for Khan to use the uber-prefix code to activate the self-destruct sequence on all nearby Starfleet vessels. But then, the writers decided that obviously ripping off The Wrath of Khan would be a slap in the face to fans who expected something new. :techman:

    Would it be possible to put the phrase "a slap in the face to fans" permanently out to pasture? Just wondering.

    That would be a slap in the face to fans of that phrase.

    Shouldn't be a problem. I'm sure "punch to the face" or "kick to the 'nads" or some such thing will take its place. ;) :lol:

    Or they'll simply migrate to the old chestnut 'JJ Abrams has raped my childhood'

    Obviously this time around we'll have to adjust it to Orci raped my childhood.

    They'll still blame JJ. He is producing after all. His paw prints are still going to be all over ST3.

    Of course, then there's Brannon Braga, who still gets blamed for Insurrection and Nemesis even though he had nothing to do with either movie.
