    Post The Star Trek: XI Speculation/Rumors/Ideas/spoilers/News Thread SPOILERS

    The purpose of this thread is to post rumors that have to do with the "proposed" 11th Star Trek Feature film. And a note for the Mods: don't merge this thread with the other speculation threads I've (or others have) created. The reasoning for this comment: none, it's just a request.

    Now here's my first:

    From SciFi Wire:
    The Scifiheaven.net fan Web site reported a wild rumor that Tom Hanks is under consideration to appear in a proposed 11th Star Trek movie written by Hanks' Band of Brothers writer Erik Jendresen, though Paramount hasn't made any announcement about the status of Jendresen's script or the future of the Trek franchise.

    I just did a thread like this a few months ago.....

    again......

    I want to see the next Star Trek movie set 200-400 years in the future, where Starfleet is in shambles and is just starting to turn the tide back towards good, crazy tech, very cool Starships, new aliens races and species, to put a new fresh face on Trek........this is a recording.

    Don't take offense Abydos, I can and will talk about Star trek day in and day out

    Hanks in a Trek movie?, I have to see it to believe it, unless of course he is a die in the wool Trekkie and wants to do it?....that would be very sweet.

    ^Yeah, wasn't that thread pretty hefty in new ideas as well? Ah well... *shrugs*

    Tom Hanks?! Hmm..... Good actor. For Trek? I dunno, that's touch and go..... IMHO it should probably be some relative unknowns so there's not the same expectation around it. Could you imagine the press build up to Tom Hanks in a Trek film?

    Wonder if Spielberg'll be interested in directing....

    He didn't say Tom Hanks was going to be in Star Trek. the dude that co-wrote Band Of Brothers with Hanks, might be writing the script.

    Whew! Thang goodness. Well, I seriously don't think T.H. in a Trek movie would have gone too well with Trekkies....somehow I can't imagine him fitting in. Apollo13 type of a movie yes, but for ST....?

    What I'd like to see in a Trek movie:
    (of course not all these things would work together in the same film.....)

    Romulan Wars
    Q
    A core crew of a particular series with a few crossovers (I like the idea of Q pulling someone out of the past/future and taking them to a diifferent time and Enterprise Q)
    Beyond the 24th century
    Tholians- and a Tholian web
    The Gaurdian of Forever

    Here's one, in TATV Trip was shut in the imaging chamber in sickbay, Q could somehow pull him out, whisk him forward in time, say you next gen era because they need him for some reason or other (that would take some creative thinking). then they would bring O'Brian in (assuming he survives DS9, I haven't seen much of it) and Barclay could come back to the Enterprise as well as The Doctor (I'd love to see more scenes between him and Crusher), and perhaps Bashir, maybe they need to set up some sort of hospital or something.
    And maybe they could all be taken by Q to the Enterprise J to fight the transdimentional beings (In 2500-something- and that might help explain why they need Trip and/or other Ent crew- perhaps the spheres are being re-built) alongside the Xindi and other new species so that we could see beyond the 24th century. And Trip could die again, getting a "better" death this time, end up in the imaging chamber again and it wouldn't interfere with canon- and it could provide a cameo for Phlox.
    And they would pull all these people form the past becasue they might be losing the fight badly in the future and need re-inforcements. Still needs something from TOS.


    And that was all thought out very rushed, but it would tie all the series together and be fun and hopefully include many of the fan-favourite cahracters.

    Exciting battles, humerous and insightful character interaction, a solid story, the captain (or other character) facing his demons ( especially in XI, and XIII), and high stakes are all that's needed to make a good Trek film and that along with a little added "something" makes a great Trek film.

    Default Possible New Trek & Tom Hanks?

    Details are sketchy, but I heard today that Tom Hanks is interested in the franchise. I imagine more as a producer as he did on From Earth To The Moon & Band Of Brothers than as actually being it.
    Someone should be able to elaborate.

    While I find it kind of doubtful, if it were true, then that would be a HUGE development to get Trek back on track. A big name such as Tom Hanks, interested in Trek would definatly make the people at Paramount?/Viacom? look twice (unless they're 100% idiots), not to mention that more people might be drawn by curisoity if big names were involved.

    Here's to hoping that there's substance to the rumour (but I'm not holding my breath).

    Yeah, I've heard about this Tom Hanks thing too. Seem it's plausible b/c the current writer they have working on next Star Trek movie has worked with Hanks on Band of Brothers(which Hanks produced).

    there was another thread about this.

    it was nothing about hanks. it was a guy who co-wrote and produced other things WITH hanks that is trying to get something to do with Star Trek. not tom.

    Yes. Tom Hanks would so not fit into the Trek! He's a great actor and all but... he doesn't have Trek vibes.

    I second that -- and if he was to appear in it, it won't even hit close to warp 1

    Someone that understands and breathes ST is needed at the helm to make this work.

    I tend to disagree- I'd have to say that Tom Hanks is far more suited to Star Trek then any other established major star- he has a history with space-oriented films- Apollo 13, Magnificent Desolation, (I think there was something else). He clearly has interest in space travel films, and there's a head start above most other established names- and I think there was something on SPACE where he was talking about Star Trek and it's influence etc. (this was awhile back), so at least he knows what Star Trek is. I wouldn't necessarily put him in front of the camera, but to have him on as producer would give Trek a huge boost.

    I wouldn't be opposed to having Hanks in a Trek film; I think he would do well. I would pass judgment after I saw it.
