Thor, Steve Trevor walk out of Star Trek (rev. 2) 4 . For now.

Lemme translate that a little: Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pine are both currently abandoning talks with Paramount over the fourth installment of the Star Trek reboot. Hemsworth is, of course, currently Thor in the MCU; and Pine plays Wonder Woman’s love interest somehow-in-the-sequel Steve Trevor in the DCEU.  Paramount would prefer not to pay out accordingly, particularly since Star Trek Reboot 3 didn’t do so hot.  To be honest? I didn’t see it, so I don’t know whether or not it was any good. Although the fact that I didn’t see it is maybe diagnostic, right there. (more…)

Are you ready for a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek?

Me neither.

Director Quentin Tarantino (Pulp FictionThe Hateful Eight) has an idea for a new Star Trek movie and J.J. Abrams (Star Trek BeyondStar Wars: The Force Awakens) is putting together a writers room for the project, according to Deadline. Sources say that Tarantino told his idea to Abrams, and writers will be gathered to work on the idea. If it comes to fruition, Tarantino could direct with Abrams producing at Paramount. There is currently no confirmation on the Star Trek movie idea from Paramount or from Tarantino.

Michelle Yeoh in the new Star Trek [Insert Gerund Animal, Adjective Beast pun here].

Coming Soon is shamelessly speculating that Michelle Yeoh will be the lead, but I think that’s just the plaintive yearning for a Star Trek series that would regularly have epic sword battles in free fall and telepathic Vulcan monks harnessing the power of their Space Chi talking.  And let that yearning talk.  I’d watch a show like that, after all.  But it’s probably far too awesome a concept for network television.  Anyway, all we know is that Michelle Yeoh will be in the show.  It might just be for a guest appearance.

Still.  Imagine the fight scenes.  Heck: imagine the monologues.

The link to a hysterical Star Trek “What The HELL, Humans?” piece.

And I’m not underselling here, I think. This very well may be the funniest thing that you read all day.  I certainly thought that it was.

cha wo’rIv toHgaHnaH lo pIre’toq! (NOT ‘Happy Birthday to You’ in Klingon…)

…but I don’t care, it’s funny anyway.  Happy birthday, Star Trek. We haven’t always gotten along perfectly, but I can’t imagine life without you guys.

Yes, even you, Next Gen.

So, poll: the new Star Trek. Suck, or not-suck?

I just read a bunch of articles that set off warning bells in my head. Not so much the political stuff – Trek is one of those IPs that gets a lot of mutually-exclusive, broad-spectrum fan love – but because there may be cussin’ and maybe a bare rear or two*. Which is, when you think about it, a rather unusual thing to have happen in that particular series.

This is the point where I would write Not that I’m a prude or anything – but, Hell: maybe I am a prude, when it comes to Star Trek. Which would be kind of funny, really.

*It all has to do with streaming services, apparently.

Watch me commit heresy over Paramount’s new Star Trek fan film rules.

There’s nothing particularly unusual about them.  To sum them up: there’s a half hour limit on productions, the work has to be studiously non-commercial and amateur (for example: no more cameos from people who were in a previous Star Trek production), stick disclaimers anywhere and keep it clean*.  And, oh, yeah: if you buy Star Trek uniforms or gear for your movie, use the official stuff.
