How about instead of a villain who had a bigger badder ship, using technology band by the federation, or just a big winy cry baby...we had one that actually challenges Kirks mind and wit? It doesn't necessarily have to be a vengeance thing against Kirk..and I'd prefer it not...but, we need a villain that we could actually get into and have us saying and feeling toward the end..."GET THAT SOB!!!!!!!!!!"
