The rest deal with personal vendettas and the crew risking all to save one of their own. The Final Frontier is a bit of an odd ball one but has one of the best lines in any Trek movie "Excuse me. I'd just like to ask a question. What does God need with a starship?"
A thalaron radiation generator that could kill whole planets and sabotaged peace between humans and Klingons sound like threats to the Federation though Indirectly, yes, but they ARE threats, even if they never fully materialized

Yes, some of the movies dealt with 'risking it all' and personal vendettas, but more often than not, there was a direct or indirect threat to Earth and/or the Federation in these movies
Was named Trek17, but still an author.

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'.

Uh... no lol I merely responded to your comment, pointing out what I thought was a flaw in your argument

There's technically nothing to repair. But a Q appearance would be hilarious.

Ha ha ok then. No flaw there really, i did say directly threaten Earth. I think the main thing to note is that the previous movies all required some thought, so far JJ's stuff is rather trivial fluff with lots of big CGI explosions, from the trailer it seems we are in for more of the same. I guess we'll have to wait and see, I'll certainly go and see it because it's Trek, just hope I walk out thinking I've enjoyed a Star Trek film and not Batman in space.

Done now with this thread, everything I have written is my own opinion and could of course be total bollocks LOL

I highly doubt the villain is Khan. Remember, Khan originated on Earth of the late 20th century, a time frame that IRL is already well in our rear-view mirror. If Abrams' goal is to spruce up the franchise for a 21st century audience, I can't see him trotting out a villain from what is now our recent "past" - there'd just be too much explaining to have to do for the new target audience of his.

I have the strange desire to splice in the SB Yamato theme for that sort segment of the ship rising from the water.

The hot blonde chick is going to die! Then it becomes personal for Kirk. 100% guaranteed formula for this plot.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

I think it's either an original character or Gary Mitchel given the Genetically Modified Super Weapon story instead of the Space Magic origin.

Or it's Nero again with some new timey wimey.
