Does that mean the rest of us can make fun of you behind your back?

I think STXII has to be at least one thing: optimistic

Star Trek has to be contracyclical:

In the 60s when the times were dark Star Trek was optimistic
In the 90s when the times were bright DS9 was pessimistic/dark
Now when the economic crises and terror makes our times dark Star Trek has to be optimistic!

Smugness for better words :P EGO is one thing, but hey, it's not James T. Kirk if he's not "I'm sorry I can't hear you over the sounds of how awesome I am".

But to reality, I believe they need to address conflict and war.

Maybe the xindi reptillians and the other group(forgot the other) get their revenge and try to destroy federation plants since in enterprise earth was there main target the xindi may try to build another spear again thats harder to disarm....and the humonids and the other one might be destroyed form helping them in enterprise

An optimistic movie idea is this...let's keep Khan on the backburner for a little while, this can be addressed in future installments

The aftereffects of the destruction caused by the Narada can be addressed. Remember, the Narada also destroyed 47 Klingon ships, so the Klingons may think the Romulans are far superior in technology. As a result, the Klingons start a war with the Romulans completely out of fear (and because they just don't like the Romulans to begin with).

The Klingons ask the Fed for help but the Fed refuses them and stays neutral while the other two great powers in the Alpha quadrant slug it out. However, there is great debate within all circles of the Fed about whether they should join in alliance with one of the two sides or stay neutral, and this even divides the Enterprise crew.

Basically, the job of the Enterprise is to maintain the Fed's neutrality while trying to act as a mediator between the two sides

The Vulcan-Romulan divide could be a huge culture war metaphor. I hope they explore this a bit.

Here is a repost from my sequel wishlist thread:

*Some subplot involving the fate of the Vulcan people.
*Admiral Pike having dinner with an ailing, retired President/Admiral Archer. They could be discussing a Temporal Prime Directive for Starfleet.
*T'Pol having dinner with Pike and Archer (she would likely be caring for or visiting him and thus not dead because of the fate of Vulcan).
*T'Pol being referenced/involved in a Vulcan subplot.
*Shoreleave on Earth. Spock and Uhura checking out his mom's hometown of Seattle.

Two words: Power Corrupts

With that I leave you two links of what I think the next Trek should be about (probably not, but I'll still like whatever the pump out most likely...)
