The other thing that stood out to me in that article is that the next STAR TREK villain might be named Gary Mitchell, which is very funny to me. I want to see STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF GARY MITCHELL on a marquee.
If they redo the episode, that means that the Enterprise will be travelling through the barrier around the edge of the galaxy. Which is what they do in Star Trek V. I hope Chris Pine gets to pose the eternal question, "Why does God need a starship?"
From their list, I really like the idea of Trelane, because he's basically a Q and, oddly, Q somehow never made into the TNG movies.
EDIT: Sorry, we probably have a thread for this.
