Quoting a friend from FB:

"I shall look forward to the scene where half a dozen Enterprise crewmen, Klingons, and Romulans are standing in one spot with phasers pointed at each other's heads."

Sigh...Star Trek should be something for all ages. There are sci-fi franchises to get your R rating or how about Tarantino do something original?

Besides that, Star Trek Beyond got some pretty good reviews. I thought it was decent and a thousand times better than that Into Darkness crap. It at least looked like Trek was headed in the right direction with Beyond.

Agreed.

Star Trek Beyond is easily the most 'true to Trek' thing that's been produced in the post-Enterprise era.

I liked it, I even kind of liked Into Darkness. I think Abrams gave Star Trek the fresh perspective it's always so desperately needed. Star Trek has always been (and this is my prejudiced biased opinion) rather dull and sterile. Abrams made it fun.

ETA: As fas as Tarantino making a Star Trek movie is concerned, I just don't know. I'm 30% optimistic and 70% pessimistic. I just hope he doesn't give himself a role in it unless it's a non-speaking cameo.

Tarantino looks like one of those white haired, blue skinned, antenna’d aliens. Andorians I’m pretty sure they’re called.

Really? After arriving at Yorktown Station it felt like the Darkness crap.
The Final Fronteir is probably the worst Trek film ever.

Fixed.

At least Darkness didn’t have that stupid campfire scene of “row row row your boat.”

That's a great scene! Star Trek V has issues, but the Kirk-Spock-McCoy relationship was never better. It's got a ton of great character moments, and is always entertaining to watch as a result. Never mind the fact that the movie makes very little sense, it's still got a lot of positive takeaways.

I always liked Star Trek 2, 4 and 6.

Just in case you’re serious:
No, he shouldn’t.

He shouldn’t make anything anymore unless he clears it with me first. He’s on a six film losing streak and is 3-6 overall with me.

Rumors are spreading faster than fact about Quentin Tarantino in talks to do a Star Trek film.

Quote

Tarantino has required it to be R rated, and Paramount and Abrams agreed to that condition.

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.
When you have eliminated all other possibilities what you have left is to get medieval on their ass.

I guess Star Trek: Discovery is softening us up for Tarantino with the randy language.
