What I would like to see in the next Star Trek Film

A few days ago, Den of Geek published a list of 10 things that they would like to see in the next Star Trek Film.

You can read their story here:

It’s all a matter of taste and interest of course, but to me, transporter malfunctions, the Guardian of Forever (though it produced a wonderful, touching story), Nazis, the Tholians and anti-matter implosions are not that high on my personal list. However the other suggestions are rather interesting and fun (who doesn’t like a good Pon farr story, anyone?). And of course, the great Khan is on most people’s wish list (though I don’t agree with their suggestion of Antonio Banderas in the lead role).

I thus decided to add a few more things that I’d personally be thrilled to see:

1- The Borg Queen: Many would say that the Borgs have been overused but I love the little buggers. And the Borg Queen is such a seductive and interesting character that I’m always happy about her appearances. Though she was destroyed at the end of Star Trek Voyager, she can easily come back as evidenced by the fact that she had previously seemingly met her demise in Star Trek: First Contact. Plus the story would be taking place about one hundred years earlier. We could get to see the birth of the Borg Queen (an idea that was floated around during Enterprise had the show continued for a fifth season).

2- Q: The omnipotent Q is one of my favourite guest characters on Star Trek ever. He’s charming, devious, and wreaked havoc on the lives of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Captain Kathryn Janeway (Q messed only once with Captain Benjamin Sisko, who pointed out to him that he was not Picard) to the viewers’ delight. I could very well see him appearing to Kirk and co. and cause mischief for the Enterprise crew once more.

3- Any one from the Soong family (Arik Soong, Noonien Soong, Data/Lore/B4 - all played by Brent Spiner): Time travelling stuff could still happen in future movies or we could get some juicy cameos. Dr. Noonien Soong could appear as a very young man (either a new actor would have to play the role or Brent Spiner could play him closer to his own age). Captain Data, from the Star Trek Countdown comic book prequel to the movie, could also make a cameo appearance. I believe that would make a LOT of fans out there squee with happiness.

4- The NCC-1701-E. My favourite Enterprise ship ever. I almost expected to see it in the 2009 movie. I was sad when it was not the case.

I have to admit that all of my choices are not at all contemporary to the Original Series' timeline, but as you can see I’m most definitely a Next Generation girl. There is a big part of me that wishes that we could get a final movie about my favourite Enterprise crew or at least a mini-series.

But what do you think? What would you like to see in a future Star Trek movie?
