    First, I'd like the cold opening to be a scene from an early on TOS episode. Maybe a digest version of the last 2 acts of Balance of Terror, though it would be kind of tough to speed up the tension from that episode and not to mention a little sacrilegious.

    Then during the opening credits they can do some quick cuts of episodes from the original run. A quick shot of Kirk and a Gorn, Spock with a goatee, the Enterprise firing on The Doomsday Machine, etc...

    After the credits you can do a quick mention of Janice Lester and then start a whole new story set during TOS' 4th season.

    Oh, another thing I'd like to see is a little wear and tear on the Enterprise. She's been out there a few years so let it show. I'd liked Voyager but to me not dirtying her was a big drop of the ball.

    If they can scan time like 24th century Trekkers scan space, and view all these timelines effortlessly, there's definitely room for them to find out about the Abramsverse if the writers want them to.

    Not that I think they will. Although I guess that choice central to ST3's plot which co-writer J.D. Payne was talking about could be whether to restore the Prime history or not (despite what was said after ST'09 came out, they have ample wiggle room to change their minds and say it was overwritten if they want). It would certainly be a very Trek-centric plot for a 50th anniversary special and one which fans would have very passionate feelings for or against.

    I'd kinda like to see them adapt "The Enterprise Incident" as a teaser. Though I'm torn as to who should play Charvanek (the Romulan commander in that ep). Perhaps the same actress who played the mother from HIMYM?

    Spock Prime should go to the Nexus and the last scene should be him hanging out with the "echo" of Kirk Prime.

    Here is what I would like to see:

    Kirk, Spock and McCoy with a deeper friendship

    Spock looking after Kirk and helping him through PTSD

    McCoy and Spock banter

    Sulu and Chevo scenes

    Scotty scenes

    Khan coming back maybe?

    Actually, 5 years after Into Darkness in the new timeline I believe is still 6-7 years BEFORE the events of TMP.

    yes but as with most things in the nu-niverse the TMP era would have been reached far earlier

    If The Shat does, indeed, show up for STAR TREK "3" then I hope he appears in it without his rug, for the very first time. They wouldn't have to make any mention of it, or anything, just show Shatner - and Kirk - as finally being Proud Bald. I wouldn't even care if Shatner went on interviews after and pretended like his baldness is only very 'recent.' It would still be glorious ...

    I'd love to see:
    - more alien worlds, what is happening to new vulcan and more vulcans (or just more Sarek)
    - Uhura speaking alien languages
    - more character development for characters who are not Kirk and Spock and more character development for Spock (versus having to read the comics to know he had a PTSD after what happened to Vulcan)
    - Uhura and McCoy interacting and being the voice of reason
    or alternatively, them being exasperated at Kirk and Spock, lol
    - more spock/uhura romance... perhaps know more about how they got together (or some reference to what was said in the comics) AND I want to see them having more fun with the fact that he's a vulcan and thus all the vulcan culture. Let them share some alien gesture that tells us more about the vulcans. You have a human/alien couple have more fun with the potential of it!
    - in general more interactions between all the crew
    - I'd like to see different places aboard the enterprise beside the bridge, sickbay, engineering, transport bay

    That would be EPIC.

    Seriously, I don't get the problem with baldness. Sisko shaves his head and that's cool, but actually losing your hair is...bad? *shrugs*

    I'd like to see no one die and no villain. It's happened before in a Trek film, Star Trek IV. And it's much closer to what happened in the TV shows. If they just make those two rules for themselves then it's already a substantially different movie, with more of a focus on problem-solving than firepower.

    Personally, I'd like an original bloody story, rather than recycling. Something new in the universe.

    Kirk actually taking responsibility of sleeping with women randomly. the whole thing with Christine Chapel did not fly with me

    An orignal story. NO MORE BIG HORMAGES to the past. A little easter eggs are fine but no more big homages. like the reenactment of spock's death in Into Darkness.

    A completely sane Janice Lester commanding a starship, even if it gets destroyed five minutes later.

    I'd like to see a transporter accident ala TMP with real gruesome modern special effects. Stuff to be talked about and give people nightmares for years on.

    The TMP novelization has a short description thad seemed more horrible than what was seen on the movie. But the movie had that frightening scream.

    I want both at the same time.

    I watched TMP as a kid and that scream haunted me for years. So yes, so gruesome horror would be a welcome addition to ST3. :p
