    This is Hollywood's chance to make some new revolutionary changes, ones that have never been done before.

    Dump Pine if the studio doesn't feel the need to pay him what he wants, and just Re-cast Kirk...

    ...as Jennifer T. Kirk. Who says Kirk has to be a man?

    If they are going to re-write the lore, may as well go full bore and shoot for infinity and beyond, no?
    Oh dear lord are you trying to stir up the masses!!

    Imagine the cries of "OMG YOU DAMMED SJW's HAVE RUINED MUH STAR TREKZ" lol

    Honestly i'd prefer they didn't go that route, it's a bit too similar to the shtick they tried with Ghostbusters and Ocean's Eleven, and tbh it just doesn't really work. I'd love a female fronted Trek film, or something progressive, but not just a rehash of existing ideas with some gender-swap or other gimmick.

    I do like the idea of swapping to a Sulu story though, with a Kelvin version of Excelsior as the lead ship. That could be really cool and a nice change of direction.

    Look at it this way, Tarantino is a massive geek. So you know that if he writes Trek, it's not going to be a half assed attempt by a writer who is unfamiliar with the canon. The downside that I can see is the R rating. Let's imagine The Hateful 8 or Inglorious Barsterds in a Trek setting. *shudder*

    I like his work but it'll have to be beyond Infinity War awesome for my eyes to watch what he does with Trek. That means they already lost my money for opening weekend simply because Tarantino is involved.

    Be ready for blood. Lots and Lots of blood... fountains of blood. Rivers of blood. Ship's bridge bathing in it. Tarantino has a fetish to bath everything in blood.

    And if it makes characters talk all gangsta and street-like... yeah, I'm not ready for "Street Trek". As a parody, I could accept all of that. As the 4th or 5th modern Star Trek... not so sure.
