HAILING PARAMOUNT COMMAND. THESE ARE THE MISSION PARAMETERS SFX READERS WANT IN THE FOURTH TRIP TO THE KELVIN-VERSE. NOW MAKE IT SO!
BRING BACK CLASSIC ALIENS
1 The most overwhelming shouts came for bringing back classic aliens, with numerous calls for “BORG!”, “Tribbles!” and even the Ferengi (really, davor edelinksi?). But the most overwhelming calls were for the Klingons. “Some of the best Trek eps involved the Federation and Klingons trying to woo new planets to join either side,” reckons p austin.
2 Star Trek Beyond wasn’t perfect, but one thing pretty much everyone can agree on is that Sofia Boutella’s alien Jaylah was a standout – and with enrolment at Starfleet Academy hinted at the end of the movie, you’d like to see her join the Enterprise crew full time. “More of Jaylah!” says Brian stabler.
THE MIRROR UNIVERSE
3 Mirror universes have long been a staple of various Star Trek TV series, and now you’d like the movies to explore an alternative version of the Kelvin timeline. “I’d like them to encounter the mirror universe, as a new timeline means a new mirror universe,” says adam smith. JJ Abrams has already revealed that Chris Hemsworth will be back as George Kirk. Who knows? Maybe a mirror universe could be the plot device that brings him back?
DON’T DESTROY THE SHIP
4 It’s almost become a cliché to kill off the USS Enterprise in a Trek movie, so after The Search For Spock, Generations and (near as dammit) Nemesis, the ship destruction in Beyond was one demise too many. “DON’T DESTROY THE BLOODY SHIP!” yells John gardiner. “Anything else will be fine.”
5 The Kelvin timeline Trek movies have resisted the urge to bring back the Shat for three outings now – but that hasn’t dimmed your desire to see the original Kirk. badg3r puts it particularly eloquently: “William Shatner!”
