While it could be interesting, I don't think they would approve an R-rated Star Trek.

Nothing in the Star Trek universe warrants an R-rating.

I mean Discovery would probably be TV-MA if it was on a regular network. I think if Paramount could market this as a film involving Tarantino they’d go for it. Whether he directs, produces, or writes it being able to slap his name on it and if he has a vision for why it should be R I can’t see why they wouldn’t. Trek needs a kick in the pants to get going again.

Full-frontal female alien nudity.

Eh, I mean some of the shows, particularly Deep Space Nine pushed the envelope pretty far. Looking back at that show in particular I actually think they could have done more back in the day, but that’s before anyone would even have fathomed the idea of making it more mature by having a higher tv rating.

I would love one more good movie with the reboot cast then move on to something else.

Just wait until you see a Star Trek movie filled to the gills with the N-word!

And of course Spock’s “Bad Motherfucker” phaser.

I love QT to death, but no for this. Not at all. Long soliloquies, brutal deaths after tremendous build up. Not Star Trek.

When QT says he still has to give notes on the script, that indicates this project is a LONG way from starting...if it ever happens at all.

Yes, but would it be any good? He'd be too handcuffed to go against his natural style.

This will never happen. At the rate they're going, though, a 4th movie with this cast will never happen, either.

The problem is they hired really good, high-demand actors so they have to juggle schedules and paydays. While I love the original cast, they were neither juggling schedules or paydays...

I've shifted my view from thinking it would be cool if this movie gets made, to something along the lines of the above quote. Seriously, what can you accomplish in an R rated ST that you can't in a PG-13 one? In my eyes, ST is such a well established family friendly franchise that I just don't see how an R rated feature film ever happens. I think it would tarnish the brand.

Re: Star Trek 4 -- news, rumors, etc.

Discovery pushed some limits in the first season (haven't watched second yet...) and I can't help but think it was really unnecessary. They had an otherwise interesting story going on, pulling it back so the gore and nudity wasn't present wouldn't have hurt the story at all. As it is it's the one Trek I can't show my kid yet.

That’s pretty much why I made that comment. Anyone can take the right guess if Roddenberry were alive today, what his answer would be if asked if a Rated-R Star Trek would ever be an option. You would alienate half of the world of ST fans. Tarantino would only do it “because it would be cool”. I doubt he could give one valid reason as to why we need a film like that. He should go do an Alien film instead and leave this franchise alone.

I think that's a fair point. My kids like TOS, have seen some TNG, and we're working our way through the movies (halfway through IV now and they love it). While I haven't seen Discovery yet, from what I've heard it wont be something I watch with them.

An older woman who works at a local store in my neighborhood loves Star Trek and we talk Trek whenever we're in the store. She's been a Trekkie since the beginning, back to TOS days, even wears an insignia lapel pin at work, which is how we hit it off. She was so excited for Discovery she got the CBS online pass, her first-ever online TV service. A few weeks later I asked her how it's going and she was sad, saying she got rid of it because of the sex and violence. She said she's no prude but it's not Star Trek for her anymore. I think that's a real bummer.

When The Orville is more Star Trek than the actual new Star Trek series there's a real problem.

(Having said that, The Orville is great, so there's no shame in that being the better series, but the fact that it is more in the spirit and style of Star Trek than Discovery is, well, that's kind of sad.)
