Bumping this because of the new Star Trek trailer that is out.  Anyone out there have any theories as to who Benedict Cumberbatch is playing?  It seems the two most popular theories are Gary Mitchell or Khan Noonien Singh.  Of course, the author makes an error in talking about Gary Mitchell as having been a key character in the show for several episodes as a recurring character prior to becoming the menace he did in "Where No Man..."  I don't know what Star Trek this guy was watching but it's not the same one I watched.  Idiot.  Angry

Anywho, here's the link to the article with the trailers attached (for some reason it didn't copy as a hyperlink, so you have to copy and paste it: 

And check out the Japanese trailer.  Shocked

I personally think if it is one of the two villains mentioned above, Gary Mitchell makes more sense based on the trailer.

I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

Just started watching Deep Space 9.  I've been told I'll love it because I enjoyed B5.  I'm also much more into philosophical/politically themed shows than action/shooting nonsense, so again, I suspect DS9 is going to delve into heavy topics more. 

If it's half as good as B5 I'll be happy. 
oh yeah

it couldn't be Khan-- he's a South Asian sikh and they already did a Khan movie.   The blonde with the bob-cut near the end of the second trailer resembles Sally Kellerman's character from WNMHGB, so I think Gary Mitchell is a good bet.

I agree that it is probably Mitchell, both for the reasons you mentioned and the fact that the enemy comes from within (which I take to mean is a member of starfleet).  Also, unlike the article that I posted a link to, I think the fact that Gary Mitchell appears in and dies in the lead-in comic series, adds to the probability that it is in fact Mitchell who is the villain.  I think it would be pretty dumb of them to do Khan again, as they already did a movie about him and they couldn't do a better job of it than was originally done. 
 
@Jim, I can't speak to B5, as I've never seen an episode, but I can say that DS9 is probably a lot deeper of a show than the other Treks.  It focuses more on politics, religion, terrorism and the characters.  It's a lot more talkie than the other Treks too.  I had trouble getting into it at first, but the characters were compelling and Avery Brooks does an incredible job, as do all of the actors.  A very good show, but much different than the other Treks.  Sounds like you should enjoy it immensely.

Star trek - love it!  I'm currently working through the first series again, which is my favorite, but also like The Next Generation.I hope to collect and work through the whole series eventually.  The first series has less in-depth character development and more action and plenty of original ideas.

Thanks Doc, it sounds like it will be great.  I think we'll be getting into it more tonight.  The pilot was very promising.  But I will definitely give it time.  I know many of the great series start a bit rough before finding their groove. Thumbs Up
oh yeah

I'm voting for it being Mitchell.
