I would agree, mostly I personally did not feel they were forced or inappropriate (Archer and the Beagle aside).

New Voyages / Phase II has played with the same idea and their reappearing Klingon character works pretty well in my opinion.

yes yes yes. That is what I want to see, Klingons. either as a whole or in the body of a reappearing opponent. I think at the core of TOS the main antagonists majority of the time were klingons. Same with the movies. I think they are a huge part of TOS and really need to be included in a major way.

Koloth would be good. And the more I think of it (and as I've said before) a reimagining of Space Seed could work for me.

But would the new Khan have the same backstory and will a reimagining of Space Seed work?

I would say that I do not want a rehash of a TOS episode, but I would like to see more characters show up... Harry Mudd, Cyrano Jones, Ben Finny, Finningan, Gary Mitchel, etc.

what is Harry up to in this new universe? is Cyrano trying to make a buck selling Vulcan relics? How is Ben Finny doing without Kirk messing up his early career? etc.

Should they do a straight-up movie adaptation of a TOS episode? No, I don't think so.

Should they incorporate people, places, and events from certain TOS episodes? Yes, by all means. I wanna see Harry Mudd in the next film. Or some of our Klingon friends, ridge-less or not.

How would Pine's Kirk react to Finnegan sure they could throw Finnegan in and other TOS characters. What do you think?
