    Of course the fanchise has "struggled" ... the morons destroyed it with ill-fitting Crap Trek "reboot" garbage and latest animated idiocy. And
    now they're reportedly thinking of going back to the original
    timeline?! Far too little, far too late. :-(



    From ComingSoon.net ...


    Noah Hawley's Star Trek reportedly stalled at Paramount
    -------------------------------------------------------
    Following the underwhelming box office numbers forStar Trek Beyond,
    the film franchise of Paramount's long-running sci-fi universe has
    struggled to find a path forward and whileLegion's Noah Hawley
    signed on to write and direct a fourth film in Abrams' Kelvin
    Timeline, it appears the project has stalled at the studio,
    according to Deadline.

    Emma Watts, previously an exec at Fox, recently was appointed to
    Paramount Motion Picture Group is currently reassessing the
    forthcoming film slate for the studio, namely the state of theStar
    Trekfilm franchise, which has been up in the air for the past four
    years as various projects were put into development beginning with a
    fourth film helmed by S.J. Clarkson before being shelved due to cast
    contracting issues, an R-rated film helmed by Quentin Tarantino
    penned by Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) and Hawley's project.

    Sources report that Hawley's film was actually set to bring in a new
    cast of characters rather than bringing back the Kelvin cast and
    would see the protagonists race to cure a deadly virus and, though
    Paramount hasn't confirmed anything as of yet, given the world's
    current situation it may be an explanation as to why his project is
    on hold. Tarantino unofficially dropped off the Smith-penned project
    earlier this year but stated it would most likely be made at some
    point, with the story set be based on a classicStar Trekepisode
    set earthbound in a '30s gangster setting.

    Both projects are reportedly on hold at the studio, but the latter
    is being considered a viable option to carry the franchise forward,
    seen by the studio as a spinoff akin to theX-Menspin-offLoganand
    may move forward with that plan while they figure out how to move
    forward with the Kelvin Timeline or even one of the original
    timelines.

    With the CBS All Access seriesDiscoveryandPicardproving the
    franchise is still successful for the studio, it makes sense
    Paramount would rather take its time to move forward with another
    Star Trekfilm rather than rush one out in a similar vein toBeyond.

    They say DSC and Picard already are the original timeline. I cannot
    concur. Specially for DSC.
