    FACT: If the writers had made this an original villain, a very large group of Trekkers would now be screaming:

    "Missed opportunity! Imagine if this had have been Khan instead! We could have seen how this timeline's Kirk and Spock would have handled him!!!!! Orci & Kurtzman - the coward fools! - weren't brave enough to tackle Star Trek's finest, most well-known villain. He is the equivalent to Joker in the Batman comics and movies!"

    No-win scenario.

    Well, maybe she can. But it's probably for something else.

    Let's wait and see what Paramount's folks start telling industry press about their opening weekend expectation - they'll lowball it. If they really hope and think there's a chance to make 85 opening weekend, they'll say 75.

    They zero in on his daughter, screaming: ie. the trailer! It's an "aha!" moment for those in the audience who've seen the trailers.

    Just put it in Uranus.

    Actually, most of them are tiny, winky little things. In 3D!

    ...TALLER IN THIS MOVIE!

    That's not so different from another assessment I remember reading, back before the last movie came out:

    I like STFS because of the Enterprise crew interaction. Some great scenes, one liners in there. Plus, the whole bit about You Klingon bastards... probably the best ad lib ever in Trek :)

    TSFS was excellent because of the crew interaction. It really highlighted their history and devotion to each other. Furthermore, it was the first time in the Trek universe that we really got a glimpse of our heroes out of uniform. Kirk has a condo. He has hobbies (collecting guns). McCoy goes to bars. etc.... They're people just like us. That (literally) brought TOS down to Earth in a similar way that "Family" did for TNG, and ST09 did retrospectively.

    Agreed, the kind of Trek that these people like isn't the kind of Trek that anyone else wants and the fact of the matter is that where it was shown that Trek died on it's arse and got cancelled repeatedly in both the TV and movie sense, Trek is now alive and moving on in a spectacular fashion because JJ got people interested again.

    I'd go futher, I'd round up all these miserable excuses for fans who do nothing but bitch about every little detail like the Sheldon Cooper's that they are and put them in a big chamber and pump it full of water until the noise stopped.

    Perhaps they can put jerk off watching Spock's Brain or whatever episode gives them a litte stiffy.

    Dare I say that the character interactions in "Star Trek Into Darkness" are also excellent.

    Let's just say you shouldn't go further. Try keeping it about the movie instead, or maybe about reactions to the movie. Leave the other fans (and what you might like to do to them) out of it; that sort of thing really is out of place here.

    Well you're the moderator so you'll set the tone as you see fit.

    I assume you didn't get around, just yet, to moderating your fellow BBS moderator who, several pages back, accused a fellow forumite of supporting, if not committing, motion picture piracy? I presume it's ok to flame people if you're a mod here?

    I won't hold my breath, I watched your moderation of this forum as a long time lurker, and its appalling frankly.
