Default Thoughts on common thread for movie

Based on everything that I have read about casting and plots ideas, I have come to a possible idea for how this movie may be put together. I believe that what we will see is a movie from Spock's point of view and telling a story that is much like grandpa telling the grandchildren how times were when they were younger. This allows the movie to move the viewer to different points in Spock's life. This explains the casting of Spock at different ages. We see him in early years on Vulcan, his time with Pike and the launching of Enterprise, and his maiden voyage with Kirk. Spock was present in all of these events and his common thread allows the movie to go through different points in time using Spock as a focal point. I would also expect that Spock's voice would also be used to maybe tell the story as things move along and allowing for jumps in time throughout the movie. Any thoughts?

It is certainly plausible but I think it will be far more indept than perhaps the telling of an adventure through the Eyes of Spock. Like the Second Hand Lions, movie.

Hmmm. perhaps that's a good Title....The Eyes of Spock...anyway.

I think this will have a action flare to it. Like Lost and Allias.

Somehow, i really don't think it will be that simple TrekFan, the plot will be a bit more abstract than that.

Mr. Spock's Neighborhood

"It's a beautiful day in the logic-hood, a beautiful day for some logic.
Won't you hear mine, won't you hear mine?
It's a marvellous day for you're vulcan-hood, a marvellous day for a vulcan.
Won't you be mine, won't you be mine?
I have always wanted to be a vulcan, just like you!
But my mother was human and that's a real drag, but what, can i do?
So let's make the most of this logical day!
Since we're non emotional what shall we say?
Pronounce my last name, You can't? That's a shame! Please stimulate, my logic!"

I don't think they have "trolleys" on Vulcan. They'd probably use a shuttle for Mr. Spocks educational public television show for logical kiddies.

I think it will involve lots and lots of (ugh...) alternate reality/timeline stuff.
It will be thinking action movie, methinks...
