    So what TOS episode are they going to rehash this time?

    Originality is dead with this franchise, it's just rehash after rehash, that wouldn't be a problem if the scripts were a little better, having said that, i enjoyed the first one and the first half of the second one but i would like better scripts.

    Star Trek III The Search For Prime Spock.

    It will be a load of rubbish like the last two.

    If I want entertainment value I'll watch the original TOS and films.

    The last two were ok action movies but had severe flaws as Trek films.

    Especially so with "Into Darkness" - Cumberbatch made for a great villain, but a terrible Khan. He should have been an original character, or if he had to be a rehash, they should have made him Gary Mitchell.

    I don't have great hopes for 3.

    Actually, I think they'll bypass TOS and jump straight into TNG episodes--which is to say, get ready to see a reimagined Borg.

    I would like that, a much darker Borg film with good action and a big budget to cater for it, but only if they have a good script and give us characters we can care for, i think the first film did that but the second film was a bit of a mess especially during the second half, i think Cumberbatch did well but i never felt like this was Khan onscreen, he should have been playing someone else.

    As long as the films are as great as the first two, rehash away I say. :)It doesn't matter really. As with the new Star Wars film, there will be fans that hate it, no matter how good it is. It's the nature of fandom.

    I have no hope for this based on the mediocrity of the first and the mess of the second. I am just waiting on the eventual reboot in hopes they get it right the next time.

    I think we have already waited and the mess was done not once. But twice. Once bitten twice shy. No more rebooted JJ, Star Trek for me thank you.

    Same here no hope or interest in it. JJ has taken my money. I'd sooner buy some milk from the co-op that I'm not interested in pouring on my Weetabix.

    You want us to wait for something fresh, thoughtful, and original from these people? You're incredibly patient.

    I thought the same thing but since it's not going to be the original series, they're going to hate it so they might as well start whining now.

    It just hit me. They can use that Khan blood to bring captain Kirk prime back. :lol: But hang wouldn't he already have the Khan blood in him that would making him, superhuman when Soran, tosses Kirk, off the bridge.



    :lol: shut down the lens flares.
    Prime beams in and neck pinch, Noooooooo. :rolling-smiley:

    This Summer, Mel Gibson is... The Doomsday Machine.Hey, I got it. The crew from an alternate universe are themselves flung into an alternate universe where... Star Trek is a TV show being produced in 1966. Shenanigans ensue as Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) meets the young William Shatner (Chris Pine), who plays Captain Kirk in a fictional series filmed on the Desilu lot.Their places reversed, nu-Kirk suddenly finds he cannot resist stuffing his face at the commissary, nor can he resist stealing Leonard Nimoy's (Zachary Quinto) bicycle. Meanwhile, William Shatner bluffs his way through an encounter with the Tholians ("I work in Hollywood, man. This wouldn't be the first time I've dealt with folks who connect at the butt and then walk apart slowly and surround you in web-like goo that just keeps contracting until you implode").But all is nearly lost when Leonard Nimoy flicks cigarette ash on his hand, which causes "Kirk" to knock a cup of coffee and a Danish into the ship's shield controls at the worst possible moment...
