I like the way you think, but I don't think we can really have both. Most of the movies have been stories built around big conflicts or events, and that's worked because there was a series to fall back on about normal exploration. These movies won't appear to have the benefit of the series, and to try to cram both exploration based stories and political/war stories together would probably be overkill for two, two hour movies.

Or maybe something far less interesting. While I enjoyed the new movie a lot, I'll be disappointed if the sequel doesn't return at least a little to Treks socio-political conscience. I don't need it to be didactic, but the relevance of ideas was the one thing I felt was missing from the heart of the new Trek. Of course, this one had so much work to do, that it gets a pass--but if we don't get some of that in future installments, I think I'll end up being disappointed.

Perhaps a new story could revolve around the settlement of the new Vulcan and there could be some sort of 'promised land' complication...

After a night to ponder the new film, whatever direction it goes in, I hope it just isn't blowing up badguy Klingons or whatever...Klingon war would be cool, as long as it shows the complexity that Trek has come to embody.

To the question of "what happens now?"

Pray that the movie flops or underperforms, they explain to JJ that he should be working on Cloverfield 3 or 4 or whatever and the next person that take over the reigns go back to the Prime Time-line.

Good luck getting that to happen... but good news, maybe it is happening in an alternate universe. Now all you need is some Red Matter.

So basically, you want another TNG movie, or a Voyager, DS9, or new crew movie? Sure, let's call Rick Berman up and get him right on that.

I suppose ST:Insurrection and ST:Nemesis with their anemic box office returns and terrible critic (and fan) reviews, PLUS the ratings juggernaut "Enterprise" is what you are basing this on?

Yeah, that's just the boost Star Trek needs. More mediocrity.
