As a stand-alone feature in the Trek universe it could prove interesting but this is NOT a fix for Star Trek. The thrill of being explorers, discovery and hard decisions of encountering new life forms is what we need.
Tarantino's insisting on an R-rating proves that he should never be involved with any Star Trek production.
The very essence of Star Trek is the progress of Humanity - personal and societal improvement and exploration as well as the renouncement of our primitive desires. Tarantino would have the crew of the Enterprise be the exact opposite.
Well, the article never said that Tarantino’s script centers around the Enterprise. A “Star Trek” movie (or show for that matter) could mean a whole mess of things.
Like a dark gritty tale that takes place on a Federation planet not involving Starfleet. Except maybe a dead Starfleet officer found in a pool of his blood, the prositute that the police arrested swears she had nothing to do with it.
And with the obligatory multiple F-bombs spewed by one and all, of course.....
