Anyone have any sort of news or early video recordings on this yet? I doubt the recordings.

I never understood why people liked Wrath of Khan so much? Of the original 6 movies, it was probably my second least favourite. I also felt that the villain (Klingon General Chang) in Star Trek 6: The Undiscovered Country was far superior. 

"I am as constant as the Northern Star"

"Cry havok! And let slip the dogs of war!"

He also got the best lines of any Star Trek character that I can recall (and yes, he worshipped Will Shakeseare).



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

I am not sure that they have even finished the script yet, it is not going to enter production until 2012

I think the main thing is the history that Khan has with Kirk. Other than that you are basically right. Also Spock sort of dies, in this movie as well.

Ah yes, I completely forgot about the Spock death scene. I think people also like the Khan scream. Although, in the Undiscovered Country, The final battle between General Chang's Bird of Prey and the 2 Federation ships (Enterprise + Excelsior) is probably my favourite Star Trek showdown.

 

As for Star Trek enemies in the future, you have to imagine that Spock would have revealed all of the information on the enemies of the Federation in the future - including the Borg, Khan, the Cardassians, and many others. They would be able to prepare in advance.

The upcoming sequel to J.J. Abrams' Star Trek has added a villain into the mix.

Joining the cast as a still-untitled rogue, is Benedict Cumberbatch, who is known for the titular role on the BBC's Sherlock, a head-turning role in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and will actually provide the voice and physical motion-capture acting for the role of fire-breathing Dragon, Smaug in the two parts of The Hobbit.

Now, the London-born actor could be looking at what may be a breakthrough role when he takes on the rejuvenated crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise.

Oh, but wait, there is another that will be joining the cast of the intergalactic space epic. How does a former Doctor Who companion sound?

Find out below!

Noel Clarke, known for playing the role of Mickey Smith, boyfriend of Rose Tyler and co-companion of The Doctor, will indeed be stepping up in a high profile role in the Star Trek sequel. His character will reportedly be depicted as "a family man with a wife and young daughter."

The casting of Cumberbatch and Clarke will further the "British Invasion" of the Star Trek universe with this sequel featuring not only a returning Simon Pegg as Scotty, but the voluptuous Alice Eve.

It will be interesting to see where Cumberbatch lands as far as his status as a villain. Will he be the sole antagonist in the film? Is he going to play one of the signature Klingon Commanders like Kang, Koloth, or Kor? Harry Mudd? Or...**gulp** Khan?

Regardless of speculation, confirmed details for this film are practically nonexistent, so we will have to wait and see.

The Untitled Star Trek Sequel is scheduled to hit theaters on May 17, 2013.
