Default Your Wish List For The Movie.

Post your list wish list for the movie. For things you hope they either do or do not do.

1. I hope they make it feel REAL like they are talking about with a great sense of size and weight to the ships.

RSW's Wish List for Star Trek: Zero...

1. I want it to be overflowing with continuity.
2. I want it to not suck.
3. I want it to carry forth the vision set forth by The Great Bird of the Galaxy but I also want it to be an engaging enough feature film to spawn some sequel action.
4. I want to see stuff blow up.

That's not too much to ask, is it??

I want to see Spock battle with whether he ought to tell Kirk about his death so that he may prevent it.
After you think old Spock has gone he grabs Jim and does a mind meld then adds "Live long and prosper".
If the whole thing is not a major part of the story it could be a powerful, understated moment and undo Berman's unforgiveable sin.

1. I want an interessting and complex story. Not the common Hollywood stuff.
2. Respect the Canon. Don´t change anything unless it´s really necessary.
3. Don´t use to much CGI. Make it real. It isn´t Star War.
4. Don´t cut the film in post production like Nemesis.

I want to see history and the stuff we didn't get to see in TOS for budgetary reasons.
I hope Robert April's in it.
I hope there's at least some mention of Archer and the NX-01's legacy.
I hope there's more diversity (especially more aliens!) in Starfleet.
And last but not least, I want to see stuff get blowed up real good!

To not treat Uhura, Sulu and Chekov as background. To provide a polished, contemporary version of something obviously derived from canon. Keep the miniskirts

Redshirt Bob I agree more aliens. And not just people painted different colors.

- I want to see the women do more than answer the "phone" and flirt with Kirk. If they're updating the franchise, and we currently have a woman running for president, then that needs to be reflected in the future.
- I want to see space treated realistically, ie no sound, no freezing instantly, etc.
- I am hoping to see the same camaraderie between Kirk and Spock that has always made their friendship so special.

BINGO!! That is what I would like too. I was just about to post that I would like to see a small scene, somewhere in the movie that reflects the great moment the main three shared in TOS. They always were able to respect each other, get there little jabs in and walk away smiling.

To me what the ships/sets look like are almost secondary to what the script has the characters doing. I don't need to see Kirk/Spock/McCoy imitators, but I hope to see a capturing of the essence of these characters.
