    Certainly not. Clearly they decided to save the best for last…Lazarus. It's really the only way they could improve on the current movie's villain. :lol:

    I'd rather see the rise and fall of Garth of Izar before he was institutionalized. Or to really go off the wall, we learn tribbles are voracious carnivores.

    I think it's quite obvious to anyone who's been paying attention that the third film will feature Jason Schwartzman as Sybok.

    There won't be a 3rd film.

    STID will get overwhelmingly bad reviews and word of mouth after it opens in the US. It will flop in the box office and Abrams will be fired.
    It will take another 2 years but Paramount will realize the mistakes they've done, pick up the phone and get B&B back.
    LeVar Burton and Brent Spiner will write & produce a 25th century story. Michael Dorn will direct.


    or the Borg with Cumberbatch as the Borg King.

    I'm thinking it will be an update of "Plato's Stepchildren".

    Actually, I heard it in another thread yesterday. But yes, I agree.

    I love The Dominion, but I don't think introducing them in XIII would be feasible. There was considerable world building in evolving The Dominion into the popular antagonist they became. I'd love to see them reinterpreted on the small screen, but setting them up for the big screen strikes me as too cumbersome.

    That's where I think The Borg have it over The Dominion. Their premise is pretty straight forward and wouldn't require any lengthy exposition. Another consideration is average Joe Blow will be more familiar with The Borg (star trek, cyborg robots, cubes) than The Dominion (???).

    Whether they can devise a story they want to tell is another story. If a certain character in XII is still present in XIII, they might have something else planned. But, for the sake of argument, we'll say they're considering The Borg. What story would you tell? What changes would you make? Standard invasion plot? Enterprise infiltrates Borg space? Do The Borg come in peace as a seemingly more enlightened collective?

    The more I think about it the more I think... No. probably not.

    Betting on the least likely antagonist maximizes my return when I do turn out to be right in the end, though. :p And besides, this is probably not even decided yet, so I can enjoy picturing what nuOdo can be with state of the art special effects, can't I?

    Yeah, as long as we're putting crap out there that has nothing to do with TOS, why don't we throw in Species 8472 as well?

    nuPakleds are the only sensible choice.

    This isn't TOS.
