I haven't watched the movie yet. (But everything has been spoiled for me anyway.) I legitimately didn't even have it confirmed that Khan was in it for a bit after the movie came out and then some ass I know was all "How did you not know? everyone has known for ages!"

I was ready to punch him.

Anyway:

After a mysterious attacker ambushes a gathering of high ranking Star Fleet officers Kirk and the enterprise are ordered to pursue.  Scotty refuses to sign for strange explosives being loaded onto his ship, but after Kirk threatens to replace him with any other engineering officer of whom there are dozens standing around even threatening to appoint a helmsman with little training to his job which would be ludicrous, Scotty accepts after assurances from fully trained and qualified Star Fleet personnel and accepting that its a large organization and he is only one part of it.  When the ship arrives at the edge of Klingon space Scotty informs Kirk that he discovered a device set to disable the ship but he removed it.  After threatening Kahn he surrenders but on the way back to earth the ship is attacked by a strange star fleet battleship with the help of Kahn the enterprise triumphs but not before Kahn transports to the ship and takes off with his crew.  The ship is severely damaged and can not pursue but with the skill of the ENTIRE F*ing crew they repair the Enterprise enough to return to space dock for refitting to take on a epic mission of exploration.  There is also a story line running throughout where Uhura struggles to get Spock to understand that a complete lack of emotion is not healthy and is very hurtful to her personally, which he accepts and they grow as individuals and as a couple.


See character arch and growth, a coherent plot, danger triumph and setting up sequels while establishing the grandness of the universe through character development.

Aren't the Star Trek re-imagining responses supposed to be 3 sentences or less?

Here's my idea, it's a small change, but I think it carries a lot of consequences.

Bones uses Khan's blood to revive Tribble. Due to superblood, Tribble regains ability to reproduce. Everyone dies.

I was really excited to write a legit elevator pitch for a Star Trek movie, but funny is hard! Still, may as well give it a go:

Code: Select all

James Kirk is the captain of the Enterprise Space Olympics team, but he gets benched when his friend Spock informs Coach Pike about his rule-breaking punch-running and lava surfing training on an alien planet. All differences must be put aside when Khan Noonien Singh arrives on the scene, the greatest punch-runner in Space Olympics history who was expelled for poor sportsmanship and put in stasis penalty centuries ago. When Kirk is injured in the Enterprise climbing room, it falls to Spock to prove it's not who's the best punch-runner, but friendship that really matters.


Smiles, everyone. Smiles :)

Wait, how many entries do we get? Cause you gave me a great idea.

Code: Select all

Everyone is Muppets. Not muppets-like puppets made like the Star Trek crew, but an actual Muppets Star Trek movie. Like Captain Kirk would be Captain Kermit (or Kirkmit?), and Carol Marcus would be Miss Piggy, and Spock would be Gonzo.


I think Benedict Cumberbatch could still come back to play Khan though as the villain.

Kirk, Spock, and Bones appear on Whose Line is it Anyway? along with Colin Mochrie. Khan hosts and makes them play Scenes from a Hat until all the ideas are done. At some point, someone in the audience gets shot.


I know I'd watch it.

Kirk gets killed doing something stupid and against regulations. Spock assumes command of Enterprise and doesn't get involved in the stupid "start a war with the Klingons" plot. Khan is killed by missiles containing his former crews' stasis pods.

 A complete scene for scene remake of Star Trek II: Wrath of Kahn . No explanation is given for why it isn't in canon with the reboot series.


Unoriginal maybe, but it would totally pack the theaters with Trekkies.

Halfway through the movie, Kirk, Bones, Khan, and Robocop are replaced by chinchillas for no apparent reason. Nobody seems to notice at all, except for Chekov, who is freaked the hell out but afraid to say anything because nobody else has acknowledged it. He begins to suspect that he is going mad.
Throughout the film's third act, the plot continues as normal, but simultaneously explores the implications of Chekov's realization. He grapples with self-trust; it's a compelling narrative on Cartesian philosophy, and also a chinchilla gets vulcan nerve pinched and shot with lasers.

You could always build a model rocket and shoot a $20 bill to the moon every year.

It would probably be more efficient than Canada post.

When it comes down to the final fight and Spock and Khan are facing each other stood on top of the craft, Khan starts breakdancing in Spock's face. Spock is initially confused and tries to 'step up' but being a Vulcan overuses 'the robot'. So then Uhura has to beam down and school them both

During the movie the new Khan begins to walk around and monologue if front of Kirk and Spock. Then as they begin to fight Ricardo Montalbán shows up and puts the new version of Khan down then looks over to Kirk and Spock who are now extremely confused and says "Now where were we? then they continues to beat each others faces in
