Urban outs the villain. Maybe.

    I still don't get why people think we're getting a remake? The motivation for Khan will have to be totally different as Kirk never stranded him in this timeline. Plus, Space Seed is too thin on story and too talkie for a modern action movie.

    If it is Khan, we will be going down a totally different road with the character.

    Cumberbatch will be playing DTI agent Lucksly, sent back in time from the 24th century on a desperate quest to repair the timeline. He can shrug off Spock's neck pinch and Uhura's phaser blast due to his sheer nerd rage at all the canon violations going on all around him.

    It may not technically be a "remake", but they are revisiting something that's already been done.

    But then again, to expect originality from the gang that brought us Transformers II wouldn't be very realistic, or fair FTM.

    I just hope (nu)Klingons play important role in the movie. Wouldn't hurt to see some Romulans either. Real, BoT type Romulans, not tattooed roughnecks.

    "Klingons" have already been done. Not counting I:TMP and IV:TVH, and not counting a film just because Worf's in it, we've got III:TSFS, V:TFF, VI:TUD, VII:GEN. Why, that's 40% of the pre-nuTrek films!

    Moral ambiguity can make for an interesting story.

    Wait a minute...

    You have a problem with them using Khan who we haven't seen on screen in thirty years, but have no problems with Klingons and Romulans being in it? Those two have been used over and over and over again in the last forty-five years.

    I really don't understand... :shrug:

    Well Star Trek itself has already been done too.

    Khan - a specific character

    Klingons - species / culture
    Romulans - species / culture

    both potential sources of countless diverse characters.

    Nero and his gang were like no Rommies we've ever seen before. General Chang was very much unique too.

    You weren't asking for an interesting character; you were just asking for a species. Why not just ask for an interesting character, if that's what you really want, regardless of his, her, or its species?

    But we've seen a shit-ton of Klingons and Romulans over the years. So much so they've really began to blend together. Nero and his gang were like no Romulans we've ever seen because they didn't act like anything other than a gang of thugs that you can find on street corners in any American city.

    So Karl Urban finally releases the "footage" from Trek XII right?

    Kinda.

    In other news I wanna try surfing. I hear it's fun. :cool:

    I thought Abrams said Eve's character was new to canon. Now Orci says the character is canon?

    Why would Marcus be in a flight suit in a scene with Spock (given the probability that she is the lab tech, Mitchell set Kirk up with)?

    I think these guys are feeding us all kinds of garbage, and sitting back, waiting to see if we'll digest it.

    Fuck me up the goat ass. So just what the hell did they mean when they said "new to canon" anyway?

    Although Weller is a totally different physical type from the actor who originated the role, it strikes me that Harry Mudd could easily be described as a businessman/CEO with his own ship. And if he is playing Mudd, perhaps the story combines both "Mudd's Women" and "I, Mudd" into a single tale, with Cumberbatch playing the android Norman. (Who, as I recall, also wore a Starfleet uniform, and was immune to Spock's nerve pinch.)

    ^^According to the new interview, Peter Weller is a new character, so he can't be Harry Mudd.

    I don't buy anything they say about the film at this point...
