What was interesting about that interview is that Orci does confirm that Cumberbatch is a canon character, as well as Eve's. Unless they're lying about it not being Khan or Mitchell, which other human villain from TOS could it be?
But canon from what series? Could they possibly be trying to use a character alive in TOS time that was only referenced in later series (i.e. TNG, DS9, etc.)? Do they consider TAS canon, and if so is it a character from there (bleh)?
Here's hoping the first trailer gives it away.....that would make for a dramatic moment!!!!
You people have ruined "Star Trek The Next Generation" for me. You are absolutely the most insufferable group of jackasses I have ever had the misfortune of spending an extended period of time with. I hope you all f@*#! die. - Stewie after spending the day with the TNG cast.
