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.

MORE JAYLAH

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.”

WIL­LIAM SHAT­NER

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!”
