Well, we know already that there is a new Trek movie coming to us in (I think) 2012, we also know that this is in a different universe to the Roddenberry one. We'll instead be following on from the Abrams one.

But what if you were given the opportunity to write a script, and produce an entirely new Star Trek film, set in your own Star Trek Universe?

Given the chance, I'd start a movie in the same period as Kirk, set around 2250. It wouldn't be focused on a specific ship or crew, but rather, on a specific set of characters, one or two of which would be captains of their specific ships.

The Enterprise would feature, though only for a short scene, either in a fight, or in some dry dock, maybe it'll feature her launch? The Constitution Class would be redesigned again too; there was a design by someone who goes by the name of MadKoiFish - quite possibly the best Constitution redesign I've ever seen.

I think also, that I'd re-write 'The Federation'. From what we know of typical Trek, the Federation is a combination of multiple species, working together. Yet, there are never any other such factions that have been formed. I know the Dominion were suppose to initially be such a system, though because of cashflow, they eventually became three species only; Founders, Vorta and Jem Hadar.

I'd probably keep the Federation as Human only (maybe just rename them Starfleet), but have them very good friends with the Andorians and Vulcans; as such, it would easily explain why Andorians and Vulcans are serving on Earth vessels.

The general plot of the blockbuster would ultimately have the Romulan's play the part of the 'bad guys', though their presence wouldn't be known until well late in the film. This idea comes from ST: Enterprise, Season 4 - Babel One, United, and the Aenar.

I'd have the film start with three Klingon Birds of Prey (another new design, based off the common one) attacking an unknown vessel, possibly Cardassian? This would be taking place within Federation space, and would have two Federation ships (of different design) going to intercept, essentially sending the Klingon's packing; I wouldn't have the Klingon ships destroyed here, only attacked.

If I would decide to use a Cardassian ship, then again, like the Enterprise, this would only be a short part of the film, and we wouldn't see them again.

Unlike the Enterprise arc, the Romulan's wouldn't be using drones in this film either, but actual ships instead; the only ships to feature cloaking devices too. They'd probably some form of Bird of Prey, or Warbird, no doubt that would be another design. This we would see near the end of the film, potentially being in combat with both Klingon and Federation forces.

I'd make the Klingon's pure warriors too, though ones of honor. Something along the lines of the DS9 Klingon's, but without the friendly, relaxed feel to them. More General Chang's and Kurn's than the Gowron's and Martok's.

In this film, or at least this universe, there would be at least three new designs of Klingon ship (one of which may resemble the new D7 design), two each for the Romulan and Cardassian sides, and probably six or seven for the Federation. I'd stay away from kit-bashing too, I find it cheap. Obviously you'd have your Constitution, and I'd have a few other designs that worked well for their purpose.

I'd also have Archer mentioned, maybe a glimpse of an NX Class (though not THE NX Class). If ST: Enterprise were to have existed in this Universe of mine, what we'd have seen would be quite different. No Xindi, no temporal incursion, no jumping through time etc.

In addition, the Constitution would be larger (though not quite as big as the Abrams version), and would house some 600 odd crew. She'd be of the Heavy Cruiser type, and I've grown to like the new phasers weapons introduced in the Abrams verse, so would probably implement them too.

Now, what would you do?

looks good ash!

Goh, i loved the new star trek xi movie. But before that, i always imagined that the new movie would start like this:

Movie begins.

You are movie through stars. The music is star trek but it is new. Darker, abstracter.

You stop moving through stars and the camera flips to another position. You see in the distance a system with a sun and some planets. Very small explosions are visible and a few huge bangs. The camera suddenly jumps fast towards the battle.

BAM!

You are in the middle of a battle with ten federation ships (tmp JJ style). The sun shines on the hulls of the ships, like it was with the kelvin. Massive weaponsfire, also like we saw in the kelvin. Suddenly a ship of the enemies fires a weapon and misses it target. Blowing up a small moon. Massive explosion and debris. You see the huge planetary debris impacting on the enemy ships but they are unaffected, showing the strength of the ships.

After some cool battles, the federation wins.

From that point on, we, the viewers, realize that the federation is in war with the klingons.

Something like that i figured, but when the movie was out, and i saw the kelvin battle, i was happy lol.

All sounds good there mate, except a typical Klingon weapon, from a typical Klingon ship, destroying a Moon. ;) The camera angle and the zoom does sound well interesting though, to start a movie with an actual battle. I know they sort of did this with XI, but it focused on how the battle came to be, and didn't start in the middle of it.

Yeah, but no super weapons, i mean just weapons fire from star trek ships. A lot of people have forgotten that a photon torpedo is actually extremely powerful. Ranges from 60 to 80 megatons. THey just fire those weapons in full volleys (sometimes to 5). That's over 400 megatons.. So, you see a klingon cruiser, firing a huge volley of disruptors and torpedoes, and let's say a miranda kind of ship, dodges almost 80 percent of it, and the rest impacts on the small moon. Then by an event of michael bay, the moon explodes. Massive debris impacting on a speed, on the ships. Like voyager, scorpion, but way way cooler and without ships getting destroyed.

I think, if you see that in a cinema, you just open your mouth and say, damn. It shows the real power and strength. Also, it would be good if another guy on a vs debate starts saying, star trek is weak balabla, now you can say.. ooh really? look at the star trek ..movie, planet debris crashes on the ships and the hulls, no damage, they are uberpowerful!
