# 1 Star Trek III - How To Do It
09-12-2013, 09:09 AM
It's probably not due until 2015 at the earliest, most likely later than that, and we might have someone different at the helm (cause JJ will be working on the Star Wars films, though we know that Chris, Zack and co are contracted for three Trek films with the possibility to extend).

I'm wondering what everyone would like to see with this third film. Lets assume for the moment too that the third film will be the final film and that all the cast and crew will go on to other projects afterward. My reason for this is simply to see how everyone would like to go out with a bang.

Me? Well the Klingons have to be involved for starters. They've touched on them a little already, though I'm talking space battles too. I'd love to see a bunch of Klingon Warships / Birds of Prey go up against a couple of Federation ships, of which would include a second Constitution Class ship (we've a selection to choose from).

Furthermore, I think it would also be nice to see the Romulans in this new timeline. I know they were the main focus in Trek I (personally, I think that was a mistake; Abrams should have just went with a straight reboot and not connected his Trek with Prime Trek) though it would be nice I think to see how these new Romulans operate.

Maybe a story about a potential alliance between the Klingons and Romulans; one of which Kirk and crew are required to sabotage. Sure, the Federation doesn't work this way, but there ain't nothing like fabricating data (ask Sisko). We know that the exchange in TOS was cloaks for warp, though we know that the Klingons already have cloaks, and considering nobody queried the warp drive of the Romulan ship that attacked the Kelvin and/or Vulcan, I can only assume the Romulans of Abrams Universe have warp drive already.

Doesn't mean an alliance can't be formed for other reasons. Failing that, JJ's take on the Tholians.

A single Romulan ship destroyed over 50 Klingon vessels in the first movie. I'm not really seeing the Klingons in too much of a mood to ally with the Romulans after that.

Also, the Romulans have warp drive in Enterprise - we see the Rom chameleon ship using warp drive -and the Enterprise canon is still consistent with the JJ timeline. Things don't diverge until after Enterprise.

My guess is that the 3rd movie will touch on Nomad/V'ger.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

very roughly. a Fed/klingon war is days away from happening and its being fuelled in secret by the romulans.

while the enterprise is off exploring and are about to be called back to defend the feds from attack when they discover something. one of those powerful god like energy sources that have unlimited power or something (real old school trek gene always loved).

this is seen by everyone as the key to dominating the galaxy for whomever controls it sparking a race to acquire it. However its actually some sort of trap by another brand new species who are trying to invade this region of space and all 3 races end up having to work together to stop them and save the galaxy. this leaves the 3 major races with a tentative peace treaty being signed at the end.

this new race could then be used further in any possible tv series.

i think this idea covers many bases. we get to see more of the klingons and the romulans but at the same time we get a brand new threat to deal with. we get plenty of action but it ends in peace and the classic trek idea of overcoming your differences to wok together and starfleet returning to the more normalised version we know from the prime universe. it also gets some exploring involved.

I would change your topic from HOW TO DO IT to PLEASE, I BEG YOU, DON'T DO IT!

Stop this nonsense. Stop calling this trash Star Trek. It is entertaining but it is not Star Trek. They created a new timeline so they could do anything and what do they do? They do a Wrath of Khan remake...

Bring back a new Star Trek TV series set a few years after the Next Generation era, please. Star Trek has always been better on TV than on the big screen.

I say no to the Tholians

I say yes to the Q Continuum. I believe with what has happened in ST 2009 and ST-ID that the alternate events would be reason for the emergeance of Q to happen sooner than it did in the prime timeline.

I say yes to the Borg. Everything that has happened in the show Enterprise is still intact. There was an episode where the Borg was found on a planet. A twist or two and a few plot devices and you have the Borg arriving earlier also. Maybe Nero's ship popped out in their sector and they adapted it. Alerting them to Romulus and Remus and making them more deadly than ever.

I say yes to past and future Captains and crew. While the idea of time travel in ST is not new, every time there is a time travel episode the concept is original.

Aside from all that, I say yes to Kirk and Carol getting married.
I say when does pon farr hit Spock? I would love to see the interaction between Uhura and Spock then.

You know how at the beginning of ID the crew was on a mission? How about use the final tv episode as stepping off stone in part 3. We know the show ended here. Final mission. Now next movie.

here's an idea...how about coming with something completely new and not a rehash of things that have already been done. new alien race, new plot and maybe something new for the crew of the Enterprise to do besides calling up Old Spock for the answers to a situation that he already went through.

The whole point of the JJverse is to be a "what if" universe. It's to show you what would happen if they changed a few things in the timeline so that you can see how the events would unfold differently. The point was never to take Trek in a new direction, but rather to re-envision Trek for a new group of people.

JJverse is like STO: no matter how much you want to do something original the fans really only wants to see the old crappola they've been seeing for decades.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire.

Romulans had warp in TOS!


Perhaps a film with no large scale battles this time.

Cryptic! Need some FREE KDF uniform options that you wont have to make? See Here.

JJ. Trek is just as canon and awesome as all other Trek, Get over it.

I rather liked the fact that they did this recent movie based on wrath of khan, but changed some things. For example, I thought it was brillaint to have spock yell out the classic "KHAAAAAN!" instead of kirk. People who think the new movies are trash just dont get that they're supposed to be -different- but remind those of us who liked the old star trek of those nostalgic moments.

Raise your hand if you want a movie version of The Corbomite Maneuver.
