Default Things we don't want to see/hear in ST XII

I did this one quite a while ago before Trex XI came out, some of these are derived from that list. Feel free to add, they are in no particular order.

1. "Fenton, are you kidding me? That's the worst. Let's name him after your dad let's call him Harcourt."

2. Klingon translations into lolcat ("Iz in your battel, I haz a deth w/ gloree")

3. Sparkly vampires.

4. Kirk explaining to Admiral Madea that he could have swore that that green girl was at least 326 Orion stellar years old.

5. Tranya-fueled kegger in Bones' quarters.

6. Bare chested teenage werewolves.

7. A wacky reunion with Bones' ex-wife.

8. Admiral Archer's beagle materializes in the Mirror Universe.

9. Anyone else materializing in the Mirror Universe.

10. The Enterprise somehow already being due to be decommissioned.

11. Whatever today's version of Space Hippies would be (Space Tea Partiers? [shudder])

12. Ewoks.

13. Kirok.

I didn't understand many of the first ones.

A reference to Harry (Harcourt Fenton) Mudd. And I agree, No Harry Mudd.

Apparently a reference to ihazcheeseburger.com, I think. If they could work it in, it might be funny.

Twilight reference. For some unkown reason, the vampires in the Twilight series turn all sparkly-glowy when sunlight hits them. Don't need 'em in Star Trek.

Admiral Madea: Tyler Perry
The rest is...I don't know...

Now that I'd like to see. They should try to work that in!

Lolcats are captions usually given to pictures of cats that imagine what it would sound like if a cat could speak. Last time around I stated that I would not want to see the Enterprise computer speaking in lolcat.

Top notch!!!

I have no idea why I felt the need to adopt a Pirate voice in my head though when reading the subtitles......................



Anyway -

'No's' for the next movie.

Not a great many as such but let us see:

1 - No random top to bottom redesign of the interior of the ship

2 - No scenes set on, near or within spitting distance of Earth

3 - No trying to make all the science totally plausible - why wreck a perfectly good tradition.

4 - If Uhura and Spock have a baby no fan campaigns to call it Tuvok if it's a boy.

That's about it!

Oh yeah. That reminds me of something else I DO NOT want to see. Spock and Uhura gettin' it on. They need to go ahead and nip that in the bud right now before it gets even more stupid. The Spock/Uhura junk was nothing but pure JJA putting his stamp on NuTrek to make damn sure we old school Trekkies knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that our Trek was dead.

I don't want to hear any more repetitions * la Spock's Sherlock Holmes line from TUC which was repeated in ST09.
I don't want to hear any dialogue which makes you feel as if the movie you are watching is more of a homage or parody of something that came before instead of something new.
I don't want to see stupid green frat girls pretending to be Orions.
I don't want to see or hear anything which cries "popcorny, comic-book-style pop trash" (and that's why I don't mind characters quoting classical literature like crazy, it's a simple Meyerian trick to pimp your script).
I don't want to see a 'lowest common denominator' type of movie (OK, that's just the above point rephrased).
