And of course that makes sense that a kid would be in command of the flagship of the fleet, a ship where there are only 12 like it, that is supposed to be commanded by a very special person, as it takes a very special person to command a starship...not in this universe.  Give the kid a job and have him train on the job.

 

This timeline of Trek is rather silly to be honest.

That's because the makers of these films didn't give a rat's ass about things that make sense in the trek universe.  They just wanted younger actors in a movie with lots of Pow Bang Neato FX that would appeal to twenty and thirty somethings with no emotional connection to the original show.  And they succeeded.

Chris Pine is hitting 35 next year, that's the same age as Shatner when he did the original series.

I am neither a twenty-something nor a thirty-something. I have deep emotional ties to the original series and have been a fan of it all my life.

 

I rather enjoyed the 2009 ST reboot and fully embraced the concept of an alternate timeline and new trek universe.

 

I don't think fans or detractors of this movie (or any movie, for that matter) can be categorically placed into one of only two buckets of preferences and opinions.

 

To steer this discussion back to the point of this thread:

 

While I am attempting to remain as spoiler-free as possible, I have high hopes that some of the "big picture" story concepts I'm hearing about for the third film (namely: deep space exploration, no imminent threat to Earth, and hopefully a totally original antagonist) will indeed be the case.

 

As much as I enjoyed Trek '09, Into Darkness was IMO a missed opportunity to go in a new and different direction. It would be nice if they steered things back to a new course with the third movie. No doubt I'll be there to see it when it opens.

Oh my....

 

 

William Shatner says he may have a role in upcoming 'Star Trek' film

 

The original Captain Kirk has confirmed that he might be making a return to the franchise in the upcoming Star Trek film set to be directed by Roberto Orci. Appearing at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con Saturday, Shatner explained that he got a call from J.J. Abrams regarding the project. “He said, ‘I’m calling, Bill, because the director of Star Trek, the next movie, has had an idea where you might be involved. So I’m calling to find out whether you’d be interested,'” Shatner recalled Abrams saying. “I said, well, you know, if it’s meaningful.”

I have a feeling time travel may be involved in the next Trek. Otherwise how are they going to bring young and old Kirk together? The mirror universe? I thought this new Trek was the mirror universe. ;)

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

I'd love to see their version of the Gorn!  "Arena" is my third favourite  Trek episode after "City on the Edge of Forever" and "The Trouble With Tribbles".  The episode would make a good template for a movie with the opening battle sequence, the chase through space and the final fight between Kirk and the Gorn. Since the Gorn were only only used once on TOS,  I've always wanted to see more of them. I never got into Trek outside the original series and the movies up unto First Contact", so they don't feel so over used.

 

I'd like to see the original cast stay away from this series, let the new cast grow into the roles without reminders of what came before.

I agree completely. "Spock Prime" has already been done once too often. We don't need Boston Legal Kirk mucking about as well. Let's leave Shatner out of this timeline completely.


Careful man, there's a beverage here!

Nooooooooooooo, that's my best Darth Vader no, not another Trek film featuring time travel, too much already.  :D

I wouldn't mind seeing the Gorn, so long as they respect the original design, and don't make it into a raptor on steroids like Enterprise, and the STID videogame tie in did. And it's got to be men in suits, with a few CGI tweaks if need be.

 

The TNG novel, The Gorn Crisis would have made a for a smashing film.
