Opening scene for Star Trek XII - My idea

[Ext. Space]

We open to an empty starfield.
The camera slowly moves to show a object in the distance.
An ancient space ship looms into view.
As the ship approaches, the camera majestically circles and then focuses on the words "SS Botany Bay" emblazoned on the hull as the music begins to swell.

[Int. Botany Bay]

The camera explores the ship showing numerous humans in cryogenic sleep.
Focusing in one of the "pods", we pause on the face of their leader.
The camera slowly pulls out to reveal a plaque labeled "Khan" as the music reaches it's zenith.

[Ext. Botany Bay]

The camera pulls away from the Botany Bay as a D-7 Klingon ship swoops into view.

Disruptor fire screaches out of the D-7 causing the Botany Bay to real.

A few shots later and it's destroyed.

[Int. D-7]

The smooth-headed face of Kor fills the screen as the music reaches its true climax.

Fade to black.

Roll opening credits.
