What villain should Benicio Del Toro play in Star Trek 2? You decide!

So the word on the street is that J.J. Abrams wants Benicio Del Toro to play the villain in Star Trek 2. The only hitch? Nothing's official yet, and Del Toro apparently has no idea who the bad guy is (as Abrams wishes to keep the script hush-hush). But hey, that's not going to stop us from wildly speculating and furiously gesticulating at our computers!


Here's a poll of some potential roles. Some were made up on the spot, others are courtesy of internet chatter. But don't let pesky reality stand in your way! Who do you want Del Toro to play in Star Trek 2: Twice the Trek?


If your favorite Trek villain isn't on the poll, sound off as loudly as possible in the comments, and maybe — just fucking maybe — Abrams will put his ear to the ground and revise the script to your tastes.

Let me also cast my ballot for Mudd. We've already seen movies about bad Klingons, and a remake of Wrath of Khan would be a silly, racially insensitive, pale imitation of the original.

But I'm not sure my opinion counts for much. After 5 TV series' and like 11 movies, I'm pretty much Trekked out, and no amount of lens flares, wide-angled shaky-cam shots, or hip new rebooting is going to make me want to shell out for more of it. I'll probably see it, but I'll most likely wait for Netflix.
