Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek Cool

Quentin Tarantino and J.J.Abrams met to consider the storyline for Star Trek XIV. Apparently Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer, and Drew Pearce are in running to write the next Star Trek movie. Now with declining box office returns Star Trek definitely needs more cool.

Mindful of this, J.J. Abrams and Paramount have agreed to Quentin Tarantino's viewpoint that the film be R-rated which the Pulp Fiction director pitched to them. So trekkers get set for plenty of excitement because coolness and R-rated films are Quentin Tarantino speciality! So how can the maestro of R rated films make Star Trek cool? Grittier action scenes which are fun to watch but Deadline and Screenrant have exclusives.

Cool long and Prosper, trekkers

Star Trek: Discovery is be distributed almost everywhere in the world on Netflix, except for the US where it will be available on CBS All Access. The series is being broadcast by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media's Space channel and OTT service CraveTV.

CBS have released a trailer for episode 10 of Discovery, "Despite Yourself," to get us excited for the series return, in January! So now heres the USS Discovery lost in space.....

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY’s cast includes Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Jason Isaacs, Anthony Rapp, Michelle Yeoh, Shazad Latif, Mary Wiseman, Mary Chieffo, James Frain....

All the wreckage apparently has something to offer, as they send a little workbee off to do something in it.

Showrunners Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts spoke to Indie Wire about many aspects of the series, including hinting at things to come. Berg acknowledged

the war will continue in Chapter 2. It’ll be in there for sure. The Klingon war is this crisis where Burnham was there when it set off and she feels responsible for setting off. That is her arc for Season 1, and that is what will be paying off by the end of the season.

But Harberts had more to add:
...the war is always alive and always a motivator, but we also really wanted to try to tell some stories that stop down from the war. And I think that Chapter 2 will open in a place where as much as the war is weighing on our characters’ minds, they’ve got a bigger problem to solve.

So trekkers, set your phasers on stun because next January we'll soon be warping ahead... lost in space..... Stay tuned for more Star Trek: Discovery news right here at Star Trek Space!!!

Live Long and Prosper!

Stephen Harrison stopped by today and figured we'd like his article because of the Star Trek connection. Hes a technology transaction attorney and trekker, yessss! another one! Heres what he wrote for us


"The homage to "Star Trek" is well-deserved
You don’t have to be at all familiar with “Star Trek” to recognize "computer" as the right choice. But the Trek connection only sweetens the deal.
“Star Trek” televised the first interracial kiss. It inspired a generation of scientists. There are female “Trek” captains and admirals. The show predicted technology such as tablet computers, 3-D printing, sliding doors and holograms. As Stephen Poe has written, “The fact is, never in the history of any entertainment medium has there ever been a story, an idea, a situation, a set of characters, or a theme that has approached the magnitude or impact of ‘Star Trek."


Curiously female AI "assistants" seem to reinforce the stereotype of women as subservients, Alexa, Cortana and Siri in Stephen's article but what I wonder.....

What would Space Odyssey's Hal9000 or Star Trek's Nomad have said to the Cortana A I in person I wonder?

Live Long and Prosper!
