Not that there's much to go on there but -

I favour a storyline which is semi-cohesive in retrospect but allows each film to function on it's own if need be. The comparison there with the existing Trek Trilogy of II-IV is a good one. They each work on their own, but also form a larger story. It would be a good model to base a new series on to start with. I would alaso favour something where the crew has to use their ingenuity to solve a problem together.

I think given the failure of Star Trek to ever really come up with a credible villain that just going for that alone would not be satisfying. So I'd hope to skip just a villain trying to destroy the universe plot.

I don't entirely believe there should be heavy use of focus groups to decide the full direction of any future stories.

Obviously keeping the fans onboard is a requisite but they don't always have the best ideas either so it's a fine line to tread.

I would hope J.J would come back and direct again because he did a bang up job on this one, but he may want to not get stuck in one franchise and he has his fingers in a lot of pies just now.

But I look forward to hearing more as things start to solidify.

I want JJ directing it.

I'd like to see a somewhat of a complex plot with some lose threads left in the end.

I'd like to see character development, the relationship of the crew developing.

I'd like to see at least a mention of what is going on with new Vulcan.

I'd like to see the same quality of writing, high energy, production quality.

Discussions surrounding O&K's consideration of this have essentially called this track the "Empire Striikes Back" option, and it's a good one.
Thats SOP these days for almost all blockbusters but comic book movies, so its kind of a given. Also, it would mean there is room for one major villain and and one somewhat smaller one (a partner). But still all the same major things still apply. No Borg. No Khan. No time travel or alt universes etc etc etc.

Focus on the character development. Give our heroes a lesson about themselves, their place in this universe, their strength and weaknesses.

Then, from there find obstacles that could teach our heroes those lessons. Villains are absolutely a secondary thing. DONT START THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SCRIPT WITH FINDING A VILLAIN!!!! Thats what most TNG movies have done and thats why most of them suck. Find a meaningfull conflict for our heroes first!!! Then find a villain or a problem that suits best to visualize this conflict. Do not make the Nero mistake a second time.

First the inner conflict - then a villain or obstacle that visualizes this conflict.

Rigged-forehead Klingons, or 'Classic' looking Klingons? That is the only question.

Orci/Kurtzman-don't bring Nero back!

But keep the pace, humour and energy in whatever they do. Those elements are highlights of the film and I'd like them kept.
