just having a reread of this graphic novel and remembering how it really feels like an adaptation of a 'Star Trek VII' had there been one last final TOS movie in 1993 (as the pages of Cinefantastique were speculating in the Trek VI issue), with similar artwork to the Trek VI DC adaption and the introductions of the characters is somewhat similar to the lost opening to Trek VI (and continuing the TNG foreshadowing with the early holodeck, Spock pouring a bottle of Picard wine, an Encounter at FP soldier suit on display in Admiral Drakes home/office). the way its structured just feels like a movie and can almost hear the actors voices as the characterizations are spot on (esp Spock/Bones). so can sort imagine it live action with someone like Rutger Hauer, Lance Henrikson, or Dennis Hopper or even Charlton Heston as Admiral Drake, with Halle Berry or Angela Bassett as the Klingon/Romulan Teilani. and maybe Beth Toussaint as Drakes daughter (and Sean Patrick Flanery or Timothy Olyphant as holodeck Farragut Kirk). and probably directed by Shatner as doubt Meyer or Nimoy wouldve wanted to direct Shatners story complete with obligatory horse riding scene (Ralph Winter wouldve been like 'just make sure ILM are involved this time Bill!'). therefore Generations wouldve obviously been moved to 1996 (30th ann) but was surprised at how some stuff seems to have been cut and pasted in future Trek projects - the rejuvenation planet where kirk can feel young again with love interest/blood feud with the generations (Insurrection), a villainous head of Starfleet (who has a daughter spy) who wants to frame Kirk/start a war with the Klingons resulting in a finale with the Enterprise vs another federation ship (Into Darkness - there's even an early scene where the admiral sets up the crew to go after kirk in his office complete with historic model ships). and 'old man' Kirk abandoning Starfleet/goes rogue into the star wars universe to help a young woman in need (Picard).
