The sequel to J.J. Abram’s 2009 Star Trek remake is currently in production, delighting all us geeks, but so far no word on the title or plot has emerged. So here are some ideas. Mr. Abrams are you listening?
1) KHAN with the Wind
There is much speculation that the sequel will feature Kirk nemesis Khan just like the original Star Trek sequel in 1982. But these days you got to throw in a love story to draw in the female audience, I mean, it worked for Pearl Harbor (okay, nothing worked for Pearl Harbor, never mind).
2) The Lovely Bones
Poor McCoy, never gets any respect. Sure, he gets to say “He’s dead Jim!” or something like, “Damn it Jim, I’m a doctor not a backup dancer for Milli Vanilli!” (which was a line from my Star Trek fanfic Enterprise? I don’t even know Prise!) But after that, it’s all Spock & Kirk. I think it’s time the spotlight is put squarely on the good doctor.
3) Lock, Spock & Two Stupid Darrlys.
A crossover between Lost, Star Trek and Newhart. I don’t think I need to go into why that would be he most awesome thing since someone came up with the idea of uploading a picture of a cat to the internet.
