Aaron of Bunsen Brewery rewrites Star Trek: Into Darkness




A good friend of mine and owner of  The Bunsen Brewery sent me a very fun story idea on how Star Trek: Into Darkness could have been easily improved.   This is the version I would much rather see.  It's original and throws in a few references to "Wrath of Khan" without stealing whole scenes from that movie.   Let's check it out, shall we.   I also urge you to please click on the link and read more about the new brewery that is opening in Sandy Oregon.  It is going to be very different from a lot of other Beer breweries.




Star Trek: Into Darkness
 (The Much Cooler Version)

Following the destruction of Vulcan, space traffic changes and Khan's ship is discovered by Orion slavers.

They surgically alter the crew of the Botany bay, but they do it poorly so they end up looking like Original Series Klingons.

They sell the crew to the Klingons to work in their mines. Khan quickly finds his true home among the warlike and honor-bound Klingons and rises to power. He is not happy with Earth for setting him adrift in space, and is angry about the crew of the Botany Bay that didn't survive. He takes revenge on Earth and the Orion slavers.


Following the volcano stunt, Kirk gets demoted to Starfleet intelligence to cool his heels planet side. The Klingons are acting different. They've mostly wiped out the Orion sector and are expanding their borders at an alarming rate. Kirk's partner at Starfleet Intelligence is Khan. He's using assumed name, Noonien or something. He claims to be from the 21st century, having been in cryosleep (similar to the people in The Neutral Zone TNG episode).

Kirk and Noonien are investigating the Klingons activities, but also there are terrorist attacks on Earth. Kirk and Noonien are working together, going to all these places on Earth that have been blown up, always a step behind the terrorists. They go undercover into a terrorist cell. They find out some information, but Kirk gets identified and they have to fight their way out.

Meanwhile, Spock in command of the Enterprise is at the Klingon front, assisting with rescues and gathering intelligence. He sees a pattern in these attacks, and compares the fleet movement to some of the greatest generals of history.

Eventually Kirk figures out that Noonien is running the terrorist front. There's a chase scene and Noonien makes it to the transwarp beaming device room.

Noonien flees to the Klingon homeworld Quonos using the transwarp beaming device. Kirk fakes orders from Starfleet Command to the Enterprise to put him in command, and uses the transwarp beaming device to get to the Enterprise. He essentially steals the Enterprise. They battle their way to Quonos to get Noonien. They get there and are captured and dragged in front of the High Council. Kirk and Spock ask Khan in disguise (who is running the high council) for Noonien. Khan says something and Kirk figures out that he's Noonien. Kirk challenges Khan in front of the Klingon High Council. They fight. During the fight, Kirk exposes Khan by pulling off his makeup forehead. He exposes Khan as having no honor and tricking the Klingons. The fight continues, Kirk loses. Khan's about to kill Kirk, but suddenly a knife appears through the back of his chest. Khan falls.

Kirk is laying on the ground and the Klingon who killed Khan reaches a hand toward him to help him up. As he gets up, you see that the Klingon who killed Khan is... Colonel Worf, Mogh's father and Worf's grandfather. Played by Michael Dorn.

Worf says something about Kirk being a true friend and protecting the honor of the Klingon Empire. The war is over. In the end, Starfleet is like "Kirk you keep breaking the rules, but it seems like that chair was made for you. Or maybe you were made for it."
