    While we'll see multiple views in the coming STU, this particular movie, seems to be the Paramount brass wanting to go from a safer, smaller Hawley film to another huge blockbuster-style movie. I hope they're right.

    That's trolling, and I know you know better than to have done so by accident (your now-removed initial attempt mistakenly trolling my post notwithstanding.)

    That earns you a warning. Any and all comments concerning this are to be taken to PM, pls.

    For me, the Kelvin timeline or better: the Kelvin TOS crew, needs one last 'hurrah' at the end. STXI was such a promising movie with much 'epicness' in it, that never was played out in the way, it deserved. In fact, every Kelvin movie just felt a bit 'smaller' than the last one. So for me, they have to make one 'big damn movie': with struggling empires, spaceship battles, an heroic fanfare theme and more character arcs than you may think, they could fit into one movie.

    Honestly, I don't know if the one last hurrah is as necessary as it would be fun. I think that Beyond ends on a beautiful note that fully embraces the spirit of exploration, similar to TUC actually. While I would welcome another Kelvin film that is a bit more epic I also am content with where it ended.

    I would like to see a series of movies planned out and written ahead of time. All filmed at once.

    I understand why the studio doesn't do this. Too much upfront cost, which makes it riskier. But if you do it this way you save money by amortizing the cost over 3 movies. You could really lower the average cost per film quite a bit this way.

    I think having a continuous story thread really helps also. And I think audiences are more invested when they know more is coming on schedule and it's planned out.

    Well, of course, for you, I'm not able to know, but for me, I can assure you, it definitely is as nessecary as another movie can be (of course, 'nessecarity' always is a bit of a difficult category, when it comes to movies and series). ;)

    I think the franchise should really concentrate on television, as that's where it really shines.
    But if they are to go to the movies again, I'd just want it to not be safe. Be bold. Do something surprising. Don't worry about a fandom that can't decide what it wants, or wants something that will bore the pants off typical movie-goers. I don't care which timeline it's in. Part of me would like it to be a Discovery film, if only because I think there should have been a DS9 film or a Voyager film or and Enterprise film. But TOS is where my heart lies, so of course I'd love a Kelvin or another TOS reboot.

    A new story of a new crew where they emphasize the importance of the Vulcans in the Starfleet :)
    Some new characters - perhaps similar to Valeris or Sakonna ..... there are so many joyful actresses waiting for a brand new Vulcan character...

    I don’t want it to be numbered XIV. Why would anyone go to the trouble of counting the movies in order to arrive at the correct Roman numeral? The Kelvin Timeline pictures use Arabic numerals as placeholders anyway. An arbitrary future film would be “a Star Trek movie”.

    I'd like a Kelvin continuation, we simply don't need yet another new crew or timeline.

    Just watched Beyond again the other night and it's just a superb film that's grown on me since it came out. MUCH better than the other two in this series. I'd want a sequel to it and I'd want Pegg to write it again. You can tell Beyond is written by a fan, so much little stuff for long-time fans.

    Lets say, JJTrek approached time travel but did it in a way the crew journeys through time but in a series of pocket universes which initially are identical, where time travel changes them, causing them to diverge from each other?

    It won't be. "Star Trek XIV" is basically a placeholder because it's the 14th film in the franchise until an actual name is decided. But it won't carry that in the final title.

    Star Trek films haven't used a number in the title since Star Trek VI so they won't start now. It would be too confusing to the average moviegoer who might not be aware of how many films are between Star Trek VI and XIV. And if it's a Kelvin verse film it won't be called Star Trek 4 for similar reasons. Like STID and Beyond it will just be Star Trek Fill in Blank.

    Personally I'm hoping it's another Kelvin verse novel. I guess I go against the grain but Beyond was my favorite of the 3 Abrams films and I'd love to see another. I'd really like to see the Enterprise crew get to do a little actual exploring. It can still have plenty of action and some crisis to overcome, but I'd like a film without a traditional villain-hero concept.

    I can see you don't like to go small, do you :lol:

    I'd just like them to actually make the movie at this point. Whatever it may be.

    It can be done, for a lesser cost, they can do what Harve Bennett did throughout his productions, borrow sets from DISCO, PICARD, and Strange New Worlds. The general audience wouldn't care or know the difference if Quinto and Pine stepped on the sets and tell their story.

    While I'm 100% fine with Pine and Quinto on the Strange New Worlds sets standing in for the Enterprise-A, fans still bitch and whine about STV and VI reusing sets. They'll be getting it for a minimum of 35 years:lol:

    What bothers me is the Enterprise having a letter because the OG movies had that. These writers directors can create and develop their own thing; there has to be another designation besides aping off TVH? The ship is the Enterprise but I don't think the registry number has to be NCC-1701 - A since there's no nostalgia factor to it. TVH bringing back the Enterprise was sprinkles on the ice cream for viewers who knew the crew lost the constitution class version in TSFS. It was a replica from TMP, but what I saw briefly in that crappy movie Beyond was a new design. In JJTrek there isn't an earned legacy for their Enterprise so I don't feel its necessary to have the same registry number.
