... has anyone completed a fanedit of STID where Cumberbatch IS NOT KHAN? It would be good to see him as a genuine rogue Starfleet Officer opposing a militarised Starfleet.
This is my greatest wish.

I might attempt this in a year or so.

I don't think so no. Have you tried sending the editor a private-message? ;)

Review from IFDB:

An excellent effort by TM2YC. I hadn't revisited the theatrical cut of this film since it first came out on video. I liked it okay but never really felt compelled to revisit it. Thanks to this fanedit, it has been improved a lot in my opinion.

A/V Quality - 10/10 - Looked spectacular, just as good my BD to my eye. Using the IMAX version was really smart and added grander scale to some shots.
Visual Editing - 10/10 - No noticeable cuts to me. It wasn't just that stuff was excised, it's that shots were repurposed and used for different effect. The Kirk/Spock argument was a great example of this, as well as the bar scene. Glancing at the cutlist after was pretty impressive; there were so many little touches and tweaks that were invisible.
Audio Editing - 10/10 - Everything sounded great. I'm not sure there was a lot changed but the score felt more continuous than I remember. I think the main theme was used a bit more, I think.
Narrative - This is where the edit shines. Khan is still not a great character but his exposition dumps are as limited as can be. Kirk and Spock's relationship tracks a lot better for me. Kirk isn't fired and then given command back right away for no real reason (and in this Kirk's dressing down works much better). Uhura's not a bundle of emotional nerves for no real reason at a time where it makes no real sense. There's no tacked on Vulcan talk and cameo. Carol is a lot less awful. Spock's raging bloodthirst now makes more sense (it's emotional AND logical now. Perfect for a Vulcan.) All of these benefits are basically at the cost of Uhura's role being reduced (sucks but I'd rather have her reduced and with some dignity) and Carol feeling like a walking plot device (that doesn't pay off). But in the original she was basically a walking plot device that doesn't pay off while also stripping and acting terribly. So, the character's big moment didn't play in the original really, either.
Enjoyment - 9/10 - TM2YC has turned a 6.5 for me into a 9. There are some inherent flaws in the script that really can't be changed, but I think the editor improved just about everything that could be improved.

Oh, and I didn't even mention the color grade. Huge improvement for me. It's fascinating what a little vibrancy can do to the tone of a film. I also have a shit eye for colors so take that with a huge grain of salt. :)

My feelings exactly. Thankfully Uhura is back to her best in ST:Beyond IMO.

LOL yes that too. Again they fixed her character in STB... by not having her in it ;)

Thanks for the review @"sydsomagicho" glad you liked the edit.
I think the only issue I have with this edit, which is one I can easily fix myself and its not really that distracting, is that the movie will switch from full screen to wide screen at some points. Im not sure why, as the scenes arent deleted or anything. (Keep in mind Im new to the site so I might have used the wrong file)

ST:V uses the IMAX blu-ray as the main source, which has an unmatted full-widescreen/16:9 aspect-ratio for some shots/scenes. The deleted scenes are also like that (the rest is scope 2.35:1). I don't mind and quite like movies like that such as The Dark Knight etc. It should be easy to correct by dropping the file into a program like Handbrake and setting it to cropp from 1920x1080 to 1920x800.

I'm not a fan of changing aspect ratios either, and this was exactly what I did. It was pretty simple.

Does anyone have the subtitle file for this Star Trek Into The Darkness - Vengeance edit? I lost a bunch of files on my network drive and this .srt file is one of them.
Please PM me if you have it!

Update: Found 'm! These subtitles were generously made by @turntheradioxoff. See my own subtitles thread.
