[[WMG: Klingon forehead ridges]]
The Klingons on Qo'nos have forehead ridges because after the empire's initial attempt to destroy infected colonies failed (as seen in Enterprise) the Klingons quarantined the uninfected worlds by banning any travel to or from them. Any Klingon that left the system was assumed infected and could not return. Any offworlders landing on an uninfected world were aggressively attacked and destroyed to prevent possible contamination. The masks worn by the warriors were biohazard equipment, and as such were only removed once they confirmed the trespassers were not Klingon and therefore not carriers. The inability to move offworld also caused overpopulation forcing the settlement of previously uninhabited regions. It also created difficulties in controlling the empire since the high council and government were trapped on the home world, explaining the increase in aggression referred to by Admiral Marcus.

[[WMG: Pike joined Starfleet in the exact same way Kirk did.]]
To whit: Pike was also once a hot-headed, intelligent, directionless firebrand who would end up either dead or in jail, and Marcus befriended him and got him to join Starfleet (and thus get himself together). The strong relationship between Pike and Marcus is, to this Tropette, implied by Marcus's referral to Pike as "Chris" - a ''very'' informal moment in a formal meeting - as well as "His death is on me." and "Who d'you think talked him into it?"

It may have also been part of the reason Pike took on Kirk - he saw much of his younger self in him, and wanted to change that before it got too late.

* PeterWeller, thanks to all the publicity misdirection surrounding Cumberbatch, will turn out to be a surprise BiggerBad, possibly even forcing an EnemyMine between the crew and "Harrison". Furthermore, Weller's [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise previous Trek role]] featured him as a follower of Colonel Green, a near-contemporary of Khan's who was obsessed with genetic purity. The connection is murky, but there may yet be one. [[spoiler:Confirmed, though he's not necessarily a ''bigger'' bad than Harrison.]]

* PeterWeller is Khan; "John Harrison" is his son. The name John means "graced by God" - not much of a stretch to think that a genetically engineered being thinks of himself (and his offspring) as gods. And the name "Harrison" is a clue because it means "son of Harris (or Harry)."

* A minor thing, but throughout the film, he is prominently wearing a Starfleet Academy ring, of the same design that Khan had [[DoctorWho Mickey]] use to blow up the Kelvin Center in the beginning of the film. And he would have been well-placed to sabotage the engines, prior to forcing an incident with Kirk which forced him to resign his post.

* Or the main villain will be sort of a cross between the Borg Queen and Locutus of Borg; we will be introduced to a female captain who has a platonic friendship with Kirk, and whose ship is sent to investigate the disappearance of several bases along the edge of the neutral zone. They will be the first federation ship to encounter the Borg, and the captain will be assimilated by the collective, and lead them against the Federation in an assault mirroring Wolf 359.

*** It would be weird seeing Karen Gillan as Beverly Crusher; her Doctor Who character, Amy Pond, was in the StarTrek / DoctorWho crossover comic.

[[WMG: The next film will be dedicated to Leonard Nimoy.]]
It has to be.

[[WMG: Nimoy's death will invoke the trope RealLifeWritesThePlot.]]
There will be a scene in which the main characters attend Spock Prime's funeral. Quintos' Spock may be emotional and pondering the fact that a version of himself has just died. Maybe it will be stated that, prior to Spock's death, he achieved the goals he had set out to accomplish concerning the Romulans and the Vulcans fairly quickly in this timeline. It would be a nice tribute and acknowledgement that he has accomplished very much.

As seen in ''StarTrekEnterprise'', Vulcan was putting enormous cultural pressure on Earth. In order to compete; a more "blended" political/cultural identity was adopted in the original timeline. (Other cultures weren't fully suppressed; rather, they were encouraged to be "social only.") However, with the planet being destroyed, their culture no longer has the same influence. With this; Earth society is entering into Star Fleet at its own pace; and there's more of a balance between "Federal" powers of the Federation/Star Fleet Earth; and State Powers (individual countries.)
