This week, Kayla, Brian, and Jared are joined by writer John Duchak (welcome John!).

Based on the trailers, featurettes, interviews, and all the stuff we’ve seen so far concerning the movie, we make our predictions for the plot, which are a bit more detailed than the synopsis currently up on IMDB:

The USS Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a new ruthless enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.

The first leg of the USS Enterprise’s five year mission takes them into uncharted territory. There the Enterprise is nearly destroyed and strands Kirk and his crew on a remote planet with no means of communication. Kirk must then work with the elements to reunite his crew and get back to Earth.

None of us had seen the film, and so everything we say here is 100% speculation. That said, we do discuss some of the bits and pieces of information about the plot, locations, and characters that we’ve learned over the past several months. If you consider these things to be spoilers, you might want to sit this one out.

“Beyond Space…Beyond Time…BEYOND…Your Imagination!

I feel we’ve already seen the 1701-A in the trailers – the bit where the Enterprise warps away with that amazing “liquid bubble wake” effect, and POV shot from the Enterprise neck, looking back at the nacelles and the receding Yorktown starbase.

I think it would be so cool if they could salvage the saucer section and retro-fit with a new warp system into the 1701-A. It would homage the 1979 TMP version with the vertically flat nacelles and so forth. Maybe after the events of the final battle, the crew has to stay on the Yorktown starbase for a year to assist in the reconstruction of the Enterprise until that final scene where Kirk, Spock, and McCoy are like “so you really wanna go back out there” while staring up at the finished 1701-A.

I just hope if there is a next Kelvin timeline movie they don’t go that 1701-A route. Never liked that.

James Cawley of Phase 2 fan series fame appeared in the 2009 film as a bridge officer

Isn’t that the synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness?

Ha! You caught me. Fixed.
