    I was discussing this with a Voyager fan at the bookshop.
    She's in the right demographic (about 20 or so) so her opinion has to count.
    She'd like to see the actual Star Trek actors from VOY in the next movie. Then everyone would want to see it.
    They could pepper every background scene of admirals or captains or crew in the next movie with Star Trek alumini. They'd just be extras with no speaking parts. They could be from VOY or TNG or DS9 or TOS or ENT.

    ^Tell her to watch Star Trek: Renegades when it's done. It's practically a Voyager reunion, minus Mulgrew and Ryan.

    Star Trek 3 will be the Enterprise going into the mirror universe and encountering mirror universe Pike who tries to destroy them. In order to defeat him Kirk has to seek the help of the mirror universe version of George Kirk who still looks young enough for some reason that they can bring back Hemsworth.

    I don't really want to see the Klingon war, we've been through that already. I think since this is a whole new timeline and the new enterprise is a lot more advanced than prime kirks, they should face a stronger adversary. I thought since Neros ship had Borg tech and it was a living vessel, according to star trek countdown, that it sent a message with updated borg tech to the delta quadrant. It would be interesting to see how Kirk would have fought the borg.

    "Way of the Warrior" etc. on DS9. Although JJverse Klingons would eat those Klingons for breakfast.

    I'm going to call it now: it's going to be a remake of "The Doomsday Machine" in some form, crossed with "Errand of Mercy." Maybe with the latter as the primary story and the former as the ancillary - the Klingons are trying to get their hands on the flying cornucopia and are trying to use it against the Federation.

    Might be good. Like the Borg, it's like a force of nature, and likely started its journey long before the time split. I agree that it's probably still floating around out there, gobbling up planets and heading in the general direction of core Federation worlds.

    I actually kind of like it myself. You could even include Decker and the Constellation, but here the reason for their presence is to fight the Klingons. Maybe Decker is the one who rams the Constellation down the Planet Killer's maw this time.

    My one lingering question: Organians, or no?

    Don't know if they could be reasonably meshed with the story of the Planet Killer, unless they become some Deus ex Machina (sans Machina) solution to the insurmountable problem of what to do with the thing, and I fear that might be a cop-out, following along the path of NuBSG, with everyone boiling it all down to blaming it on God. I do like the concept of the Organians, but I don't know if it will work with any other plot device.

    OTOH, playing devil's advocate, a part of me also thinks we should generally part ways with TOS-sourced material and let this new crew find different things to discover. We had Khan recently and the Origin Story before that. It may be time to explore new horizons.

    Oh, totally agreed. I just don't see this new story being original... and even if it is, I think it will at least have window dressings of previous stories.

    As for the Planet Killer/Klingon conflict storyline, I say nay to the Organians.

    If they had just Klingons with no PK, I could see the Organians appearing at the end, imposing their will, but with some new twist. All 3 elements, however, I think would likely be a muddy mess.

    That too. Mostly, I just hate deus ex machina.

    There's a joke in there somewhere. How many nerds does it take to burn down an office building?
