[REVIEW] ‘Star Trek: Horizon’ True To The Trek Universe

star trek horizon full film

Star Trek: Horizon is the latest in a recent series of fan films. Produced and directed by Tommy Craft (who also takes on many other production roles), and with a solid production team and cast, Star Trek: Horizon should be satisfying to most fans.

Released in February, the project was successfully backed on Kickstarter in May of 2014 and raised $22,600, more than twice its inital goal.

Star Trek: Horizon

Horizon is set in the same era as Star Trek: Enterprise , picking up where that series ended. The film centers on the Discovery , an NX class ship like Archer’s Enterprise , and its crew. Captain Harrison Hawke leads a mostly human crew. The one exception is Lieutenant T’mar, a Romulan defector bringing important tactical information to Starfleet. Horizon covers the Romulan war mentioned in Enterprise , and also takes elements of the Temporal Cold War, bringing that to a conclusion.

'Star Trek: Horizon' Review

The film opens with a prelude featuring the last surviving members of a race legendary in the Star Trek galaxy, the Iconians. They have been defeated by another race that created a super weapon called Horizon. The two Iconians take and hide the weapon so it cannot be used again.

The first scene in the present time begins with Discovery racing back to earth to get T’mar and her secrets to Starfleet Command with several Romulan ships in pursuit. They take heavy damage and suffer casualties. The Enterprise makes a cameo here, swooping in to save them at the last moment. Captain Archer’s ship makes several appearances throughout the movie, which Enterprise fans will love. Discovery limps back to space dock to undergo repairs and debrief.

T'mar and Vulcan

T’mar and Vulcan

They learn from T’mar that the Romulans are building a super weapon just two light-years from earth. A fleet of Vulcan and earth ships, including the newly repaired Discovery , head out to find and destroy the weapon, called Horizon. The fleet comes under attack by Romulans, and it’s left to the Discovery to destroy the weapon with their new prototype torpedoes. The torpedoes cause an unexpected spacial rift to form, and Discovery is pulled through.


The crew find themselves at the planet Horizon was brought to by the Iconians. While investigating a structure on the surface they are found by Daekon, a Romulan defector from the future and a combatant in the Temporal Cold War. We learn that he is the mysterious man from the future in the Enterprise series. The crew of Discovery works to defeat him and finally completely destroy the weapon, bringing the Temporal Cold War to a close at long last.


Overall, the plot and writing of this film are absolutely solid. It strikes the right tone and fits nicely into the Star Trek universe. The story is logical for the time period, the characters fit and make sense being where they are, and nothing seems too fantastical for the setting. Good writing and characters can go a long way toward making up for a lower production value.

There are some minor issues with the film, but some of my issues could be personal opinion. I found myself getting a bit annoyed with the soft focus and lens flare, and squinting at the screen a lot. That could either be a stylistic choice or a practical one given that the film was shot almost entirely on green screen. The only other real issue I had was that occasionally the acting could be a bit stiff, but overall the cast is good.


The CGI/effects generally look good, the costumes fit the time period, and the makeup for the aliens is believable. The writing strikes the right emotional tones, and the characters are as fully realized as they can be within the time limitations of the movie.

Fans of Star Trek: Enterprise will love this film and should definitely give it a try. Those who haven’t seen it or don’t remember it well may get a bit lost and not understand all of the references, but the plot will still mostly make sense. It’s a nice continuation of a series that was cancelled too soon, wraps up some of those storylines, and lets us see more of that time in Starfleet and Federation history.

Why give so much of the plot away? Your first few paragraphs may leave a reader thinking, ‘Well, now that I know what happens in the movie, I don’t actually need to see it.’

These fan films always impress me with their effects but the bottom line is their weak point will always be the acting. At best it’s average, at worst (like some scenes in this trailer) it’s down right excruciating to watch. I guess they’re all trying to emulate Shatners horrible acting and they’re doing a great job. I’ve seen better acting at a Grade 3 Christmas play.

March 27, 2016 at 2:47 am

I don’t agree with you. I’ve seen acting in Trek fan films that was downright cringeworthy, but this isn’t one of those films. For most part the actors in this one did okay, if not better. That’s not to say all scenes were perfect, but it was definitely watchable and enjoyable.

I think you’re letting your own preconceived bias about fan films cloud your judgement concerning this one frankly.

' data-src=


March 27, 2016 at 10:45 pm

They did ok, but not better. The acting is flat. The only two actors that impacted me with any quality had brief roles…the Vulcan and The Admiral. The acting is poor. And yea there are some cringeworthy ones out there…Of Gods and Men…that was just bad. I watched it for shits…Ill never watch it again lol. Same with Renegades..didnt like the story, did like the random rag tag group of characters they put together, the uniforms were laughable and the sets were terribly designed.

Watching this now, and the one take-away is someone seemed to think using shakey cam is a substitute for good writing. I’m less inclined to blame the actors because I don’t think anyone can could deliver these lines well. It’s an interesting mix of people not acting the way people do, unnatural dialog, long clunky exposition, and the entire cast ranging from meh to downright unlikeable, especially the captain. I don’t think anyone is channeling Shatner here, frankly because there is no charm involved in their performance. They all remind me of T’Pol from Season 1 Enterprise.

April 7, 2016 at 12:45 am

I feel bad re-reading that, because I really didn’t say anything good about it. The effects weren’t bad. It did make feel nostalgic for the NX class of ships.

August 10, 2017 at 9:41 pm

I know this comment thread is a year old, but I just saw this film for the first time so I figured I’d chime in. Yes, the acting seems poor. But there is a couple reasons for that which you can see in most low budget attempts at film.

The first reason is a minimum use of takes. A multi-million dollar film, or even a television show can afford to pay everyone involved to spend 10-16 hrs a day, sometimes 7 days a week for weeks on end to do even just a minute or two of each scene over and over until they get it just right.

It used to be that the cost of film was a major factor in that too, but with digital filming, that is no longer an issue, so even a small time group of fans can afford takes as long as they can keep everyone there.

Which likely means what they can accomplish on a Saturday or a few evenings during the week. The actors and crew likely all have day jobs, so they cannot commit the time required to give a perfect, polished performance in every scene of a movie like this.

The second major reason is because most of the actors you see in these types of fan films are experienced in stage acting, not acting in front of a camera. It’s a very different style of acting where you have to be more subtle in front of a camera and more melodramatic on a stage.

Stage actors sometimes seem stiff on camera because they are trying to reign in their normal dramatic style, which would look utterly ridiculous on film. Again, with enough takes, they can nail it down just fine (as many stage actors do in big films), but without all of those takes, they have a hard time finding that right balance.

Film is a very unforgiving medium, and so any flaws will really jump out at you. Even the average TV sitcom episode is a mish-mash of hundreds of takes and tries and retries until they get something presentable. A full length film is even more so. And in both cases, the actors are “used to” a specific style of delivery at a certain point.

Finally, I’ve seen some complain about all of the lens flare and blurring. Well, that is to make up for a lack of having full sets and a high-paid well-equipped team of post production editors and the like. Without all of that stuff, it would have looked like it was filmed in your living room.

As it is, yes it’s a bit annoying and odd looking in some parts, but at no point do you get the idea you are anywhere else but on a starship or in some weird alien relic, or wherever it is the director intends you to be at the time. So the effects accomplish their goal.

I think what people need to take from a fan film like this is that there are people who have the ability to make something to this level of excellence for peanuts, and if given a bit more of a budget, could probably make a very good quality film for far less than what studios currently spend on big movies.

We’re at a point now where it is safe to say that most big budget films are just not that good. They are heavy on the effects but are really lacking in a good story. I liked this and many stories I have seen in fan films. Stories that I would love to see done with a big budget.

We’ve finally arrived to the point where technology can make up for a lot of budget deficiencies and there may be a day soon where something like “medium budget” films could start to challenge the old film studios.

March 27, 2016 at 10:54 pm

The acting is rather flat, there is that “something” that is missing. I found it difficult to watch, watched it once for kick like Of Gods and Men, but I doubt I will go back and watch either again. Same goes for Renegades. Im not a fan of Horizons effects either. To bright and fuzzy. Too much glow coming off the ships, I didn’t like the warp effect and far too much green screen everything is fuzz and out of focus behind the actors. I would lump Horizon in with Star Trek Renegades and what I’ve seen of the upcoming Star Trek Captain Pike in the same category, B fan movies. Whatever people might say about the Axanar gang, Prelude to Axanar is a grade A fan flick. Great story, great acting, and the effects…NO ONE outside of Hollywood studio production quality beats Tobias Richter and his ‘The Light Works’ company, amazing work. Aside from Axanar the only other fan film I have my eye on is Pacific 201, it looks to be very a promising and unique Star Trek fan films. I also love the style of Pacific vessel. I get the impression it will be better than Renegades and Horizon. If you have not heard of Pacific 201 yet they have some trailers and production videos on their youtube channel and website. Regardless, kudos to all fan films, they all put a lot of love and passion into them and copious amounts of hard work. Fantastic or meh, peoples opinions will differ, keep em coming!

March 28, 2016 at 5:25 am

ALL fan films suffer unfortunately, it’s not just a Star Trek phenomenon. They are made by amateur fans. There’s nothing wrong with it, I just have a hard time getting past bad acting. And in this case it’s not that it’s terrible, just very wooden by many in the film

April 2, 2016 at 3:00 pm

Disappointing. Boring; dozed off a few times and only watched about half. (Much) less than stellar acting and directing, especially camera work on close-ups.

April 21, 2016 at 5:04 am

I applaud the accomplishment, but the visual style is a non-starter for me. I couldn’t get through 15 minutes. My eyes are bleeding. Impressive effort that I’m sure I would have no hope of accomplishing myself… but all that said, I’d be a lot more impressed if it was watchable.

Here's our Star Trek streaming guide, so you know where to go boldly where you've never gone before... Without leaving your sofa. We've come up with this Star Trek streaming guide because since the first ever episode aired back in 1966, there's been  a huge number of additions into the franchise. 

Star Trek is currently in a bit of a purple patch for content as Paramount Plus , which is the home of all things Star Trek, is responsible for several new shows in recent years. But, it's not just new content, you'll also find where to stream the classics both movies and TV series below. 

Before, Star Trek content was scattered all around different streaming services and searching for what you wanted to watch could feel like hunting for a cloaked Bird of Prey. However, these days you're able to stream all Star Trek content out there on Paramount Plus. However, we do have round-ups of the best sci-fi movies and TV shows on Netflix , Disney Plus and Amazon if you want to check them out. 

You can also check out our take on the Star Trek movies, ranked so you know which movies to beam up onto your device. While Paramount Plus has everything Star Trek out there, you can find the odd bit of content on other platforms. So, below you'll find where you can watch what, regardless of where you're based, in our Star Trek streaming guide.

The Star Trek movies can be divided into three tidy groups: the original cast, the Next Generation cast, and the reboot cast. All of them can be found on Paramount+. However, Paramount+ isn't the only place you can stream the movies and in some cases you can rent or buy from places such as Amazon .

Here’s how to stream the Star Trek movies in the U.S., in order of release:

Star Trek: The Motion Picture — Paramount+ Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan — Paramount+ Star Trek III: The Search for Spock — Paramount+ Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home — Paramount+ Star Trek V: The Final Frontier — Paramount+ Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country — Paramount+ Star Trek: Generations — Paramount+ Star Trek: First Contact — Paramount+ Star Trek: Insurrection — Paramount+ , Spectrum Star Trek: Nemesis — Paramount+   Star Trek (2009) — Paramount+ , Pluto TV Star Trek Into Darkness — Paramount+ , Pluto TV Star Trek Beyond — Paramount+ , DIRECTV , Freevee

When it comes to Star Trek on the small screen, you can find them all in one place. Paramount+ not only has every episode of every legacy Trek show, it’s also the home of all the new Star Trek programming, such as Picard and Strange New Worlds. If you’re a Trekkie, you absolutely want to have Paramount+ to keep up with the object of your affection. A word of warning though, other streaming platforms may only have select episodes or series to stream.

Star Trek: The Original Series — Paramount+ , Pluto TV Star Trek: The Next Generation — Paramount+ , Pluto TV Star Trek: Deep Space Nine  — Paramount+ , Sling , Spectrum Star Trek: Voyager — Paramount+ , Pluto TV Star Trek: Enterprise — Paramount+ Star Trek: Discovery — Paramount+ , DIRECTV Star Trek: Picard — Paramount+ Star Trek: Short Treks — Paramount+ Star Trek: Lower Decks — Paramount+ Star Trek: Prodigy — Paramount+ ,   DIRECTV , FuboTV , Spectrum Star Trek: The Animated Series — Paramount+ Star Trek: Strange New Worlds — Paramount+

Now that Paramount+ has arrived in the U.K, streaming Star Trek is a lot easier. You can view most of the movies on the streaming platform. Star Trek Beyond is the exception but that can be found on Amazon Prime. If you're not prepared to subscribe to Paramount+, the movies are available to rent or buy from a number of different platforms. 

Star Trek: The Motion Picture — Paramount+ Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan — Paramount+ Star Trek III: The Search for Spock — Paramount+ Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home — Paramount+ Star Trek V: The Final Frontier — Paramount+ Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country — Paramount+ Star Trek: Generations — Paramount+ Star Trek: First Contact — Paramount+ Star Trek: Insurrection — Paramount+ Star Trek: Nemesis — Paramount+ Star Trek (2009) — Paramount+ , Amazon Prime Star Trek Into Darkness — Paramount+ , Amazon Prime Star Trek Beyond — Amazon Prime

Star Trek: The Next Generation - Picard, Ryker, and Troi

Now that Paramount+ has reached those across the pond, the U.K. can enjoy streaming Star Trek shows as well. Netflix is also another great option to fulfil your Trekkie viewing needs, especially if you're interested in checking out Star Trek: The Animated Series, which is exclusive to Netflix. 

However, for the likes of Picard and Lower Decks, you’ll have to hop on over to Amazon Prime. It's worth noting that platforms such as SkyGo may only have a select number of episodes or series to stream.

STAR TREK: HORIZON (interview with TOMMY KRAFT), part 1

Cover 1

Show-runner Tommy Kraft gave me a special link to view the movie early. I’d watched barely the first 15 minutes when I shot him a Facebook IM saying simply “F—king WOW!”

Horizon (no ‘s’ at the end, folks!) starts out with a bang—several, in fact—and immediately lets the viewers know that they’re in for a wild and high-quality fan film ride. I’ll try to keep spoilers to a minimum, but if you want no spoilers at all, skip down a few paragraphs to the END OF SPOILERS line and then read on after that. Otherwise, consider yourself warned…


Unlike many other Star Trek series (both studio-produced and fan-made), the Horizon in the title does NOT refer to the name of a starship. Instead, it is the name of a planet with a devastating weapon that was created 250,000 years ago by the Arioui (an original race) to destroy the Iconian Great Alliance. The Iconians were a race that was originally introduced in the season two Next Generation episode “Contagion.” Fans have since been intrigued with the Iconians, and they’ve appeared in multiple novels, short stories, and even the Star Trek Online video game.

Star Trek: Horizon takes its place as one of the very few fan films set during the time of the series Star Trek: Enterprise , specifically in 2160, one year before the end of the Romulan War and the formation of the United Federation of Planets. So the war is very salient in the story, and scrimmages with the Romulans play a major part in this movie.

Although we do see the Enterprise NX-01 in this film, the “star of the show” is the NX-04 Discovery , captained by Harrison Hawke, a much more military-style commander than Jonathan Archer. One might assume (although it is not specifically stated in the film) that after hostilities broke out with the Romulans, Starfleet shifted its priorities in assigning captains to the NX fleet from seeking those who were explorers to favoring ones with more tactical military training.


All of the actors cast were experienced professionals with IMDb pages rather than simply grabbed from a pool of untrained fans, and they give consistently impressive and believable performances. I realize that not every fan film has access to “real” actors, but it’s amazing what a difference it can make.

The look of the film is amazing, and the uniforms are spot on to the original 22nd century jumpsuits seen on Star Trek: Enterprise …and I mean spot on! The visual effects are also spectacular, and not just the starship exteriors and space battles but also some meticulously modeled background interiors of the NX starship, which are composited in behind actors who were filmed in front of green screens.

And while many fan films, out of necessity, use music taken directly from Star Trek or other sources, Horizon features an entirely original score that sounds like someone kidnapped Bear McCreary (from the new Battlestar Galactica ) and had him compose new music for a Star Trek fan film.

And speaking of Battlestar Galactica , Horizon has a very similar directorial feel using a shaky camera technique and often out-of-focus backgrounds with dreamlike lighting and (gasp!) lens flares. It’s a very unique and fresh approach for Star Trek …especially for a fan film. While I’m sure some fans won’t like it simply because it’s so different from the more familiar style we’re used to, I favor the bold approach. If every artist painted a bowl of fruit that exact same way, we’d never have true art.


“Written, Directed, Edited by, Music By, Visual Effects By, and Director of Photography and Costume Design By…”

If ever there were a “Renaissance Man” of Star Trek fan films, it would be Tommy Kraft. And after a three-year odyssey that included countless hours of non-stop work and dedication, Tommy finally debuted his completed 102-minute masterpiece yesterday to the delight of fans who had been eagerly awaiting this film since late 2014 when Kraft posted his first trailer . Since then, the trailer has logged more than 3.25 million views on YouTube.

I caught up to this fan film dynamo, and he was gracious enough to provide a very insightful look into the origins and evolution of this production that moved almost immediately onto my list of MUST SEE Star Trek fan films. Ladies and gentlemen, a round of applause for Tommy Kraft…


JONATHAN: Dude, you and your team have knocked this one out of the park! My sincere congratulations on a job masterfully done…

TOMMY: First of all, thank you again for all the nice things you said. I’m really, really glad you liked the movie so much. That’s very encouraging to hear!

JONATHAN: So let me start by asking the most obvious question: why Enterprise -era? Most fan films avoid 22nd century stories because the costumes and sets are so challenging to make (versus 23rd or 24th century Trek ). And to be honest, the last TV series wasn’t all that popular or successful. So why aim your first major fan film effort in that direction?

TOMMY: I’ve had numerous ideas for fan films over the years. I always thought it’d be fun to do a Deep Space Nine fan film, and as a huge fan of Stargate, I’ve always had ideas for stories in that universe. When it comes to difficulty, honestly, all of these are about the same. You still find yourself in the position of having to create costumes, sets (virtual or physical), ships, etc. So, it’s really a matter of which one is most important to you. Enterprise was personally very important to me. That’s why I chose that series to pursue. It helped me through a very rough time and inspired me in a way no other Star Trek show did.

JONATHAN: If I may ask, how did Enterprise help you personally?

TOMMY: My depression started in 2012, not long before I began working on Horizon . Enterprise , the character of Captain Archer, and working on the film served as huge inspirations and passions for me that helped guide me through that initial episode and find some ways to cope. There was also this huge religious de-conversion to atheism involved that was one of the best things that ever happened to me. Captain Archer, always being the explorer, inspired me to explore beyond my fundamentalist Christian upbringing, and what I found—basically, science; I found I have a huge passion for it—changed my life for the better in a lot of ways.

JONATHAN: Wow, I never imagined that Enterprise could be so inspiring. But if Captain Archer could help in your struggle against depression, then I’d say the series was a HUGE success after all!


Okay, before we dive into the Horizon itself, I’d like to ask you a little about getting from there to here. I’ve heard that you were a music major in college, but you really wanted to direct?

TOMMY: While film school would have been my first choice, I got free college tuition because my mom worked at the college I went to. Music is another huge passion of mine, so it worked out. These days I’m doing freelance film work full time. Sometimes it’s shooting commercials, and other times it’s visual effects on indie movies and commercials.

JONATHAN: I know you did some of the compositing for Prelude to Axanar . Have you worked on any other fan films… Trek or otherwise?

TOMMY: I think I did almost all of their compositing, if memory serves! I haven’t worked on any others since then though. I’ve been too busy with Horizon and my other indie film work to devote the amount of time and attention required to work on other fan projects.

JONATHAN: Why did you decide to undertake such a significant project (a full-length feature) as your first attempt at both writing and directing? Wouldn’t it have been easier to start out with a shorter film?

TOMMY: It actually wasn’t my first attempt at directing. I’ve written and directed numerous short films before Horizon and was planning to make my first feature at some point. As crazy as it was to do a scifi epic for my first feature, when I got the inspiration for Horizon, I knew it had to be the one.

JONATHAN: Which came first? Did you decide it would be an Enterprise -era adventure and then write the story or did you come up with a story first and then figure out a way to fit it into the 22nd century?

TOMMY: I always knew it would be an Enterprise story first. Enterprise being such a huge inspiration for me, it was my goal to close out story threads left hanging when they were canceled.


JONATHAN: How long did it take you to develop your script? Did you just pop it out like a Tic Tac, or did you do lots of revisions and rewrites?

TOMMY: It took me probably between 3-6 months from the first ideas to the final draft of the script. While I was supposed to be taking notes in my classes (I did take some! ) I was scripting movies and writing outlines for stories. I wrote about half of the film’s outline and then began work on the screenplay. I tend to let my first draft of the screenplay be my guide and outline; it gives me a better sense of the characters and story. From there I did fixes and redrafts.

JONATHAN: So you had your script, what came next?

TOMMY: While I was writing the screenplay, I began creating the 3D models. It was a hand-in-hand process. Some days I’d work more heavily on the script, other days I’d work more heavily on the models. The virtual bridge set was the first model I began work on, and then I began with the ship itself and other interiors for the ship including Engineering, corridors, etc. I did all of my 3D modeling in Autodesk 3DS Max 2012 and texturing of those models in Adobe Photoshop

JONATHAN: Speaking of virtual sets, many fan films have shot actors in front of green screens, and then later they composite 3D backgrounds behind those actors. And usually when these scenes happen, the camera doesn’t move and neither does the background image. But the first eye-catching scene that we view in your first trailer shows a Romulan with both the camera and background spinning around him. How did you manage that?

TOMMY: That particular scene was accomplished with a swiveling office chair, and that’s it! I basically had the actor (Ryan T. Husk) sit in the chair and had another person sit on the floor and slowly spin the chair while he was delivering his lines. In postproduction, you remove the green screen and add in your virtual bridge set, with a virtual camera that rotates in a circle in the opposite direction your actor was rotating. When you drop in your footage it looks as if the scene was shot with a camera rotating around the actor. Other scenes with camera motion were largely created by filming on a tripod without moving the camera, and then dropping that 2D “plate” into a scene with a camera doing things such as dollying in or out. And just to note, we didn’t have anything fancy for this stuff, it was shot almost entirely in front of a home green screen in my parents’ basement.


JONATHAN: So you filmed this entire movie in your parents’ basement? You must have VERY supportive parents!

TOMMY: I do have very supportive parents, and I can’t thank them enough for that. I’ve seen a lot of parents who—when their kids wish to pursue the arts—immediately shut them down and demand that they get a “real” job in the medical or business field. My parents never did that. They always supported my creative ambitions and pushed me to always pursue my dreams and goals. In fact, my mom even taught me how to sew when I started Horizon so I could create all the costumes for the film.

JONATHAN: Well, I have to admit that those uniforms look amazing! Did you also design the patches for the NX-04 Discovery , too? And was it you who came up with the motto PER ASPERA AD ASRTRA (“Through hardships to the stars”)? It’s eerily appropriate to Earth’s struggle with the Romulans.

TOMMY: I did design the patches! That was great fun, but if I recall correctly, the motto is one that was used for one of the patches on the show, or perhaps it was a Latin phrase I found online in one of those websites that gives you popular phrases in other languages. I can’t quite recall at this point, to be honest!


TOMMY: Sure! Why not? It’s never mentioned in the film what the names of those ships would be, but I did name the Discovery after the space shuttle, so it seems appropriate to continue on that train of thought.

Next time , we conclude our awesome interview with Tommy Kraft as we find out more about the actors and production crew, ask about his Kickstarter campaign, and take a look into Tommy’s stylistic choices as a director to make this project look unlike any fan film that’s come before.

In the meantime, I strongly recommend you make yourself some popcorn, get comfortable, turn up the volume on your speakers, and…

Paramount Pictures Officially Confirms Star Trek Origin Movie For Its Upcoming Film Slate

star trek horizon full film

| April 11, 2024 | By: Anthony Pascale 240 comments so far

Today, the road to the next Star Trek feature film took a small but significant step towards becoming reality.

Paramount makes it official

Earlier this year, it was reported that Paramount Pictures was developing a new Star Trek feature film in parallel development to the “Star Trek 4” sequel to 2016’s Star Trek Beyond . Today the studio made the reports official as they announced their slate of films for 2025 and 2026, an official list which includes what Paramount is now calling “Untitled Star Trek Origin Story.” The studio also confirms the previously reported details: The film is “set decades before the original 2009 Star Trek film.” Toby Haynes ( Andor , Black Mirror “USS Callister”) is directing based on a screenplay by Seth Grahame-Smith ( The Lego Batman Movie ), with J.J. Abrams returning as producer.

The Star Trek movie was just one of many the studio confirmed as part of their 2025/2026 slate at their CinemaCon presentation today. Paramount Pictures CEO Brian Robbins led the studio’s presentation at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. This is the first time Star Trek has been part of the studio’s annual CinemaCon event since Robbins took over in 2021.

The “Star Trek 4” sequel to Beyond was not part of today’s CinemaCon presentation, presumably because with the recent hiring of a new screenwriter , that film would not be ready for theaters by 2026. It has also been reported that the origin story movie is set to start filming by the end of the year. There are no details yet on the plot, specific time setting, or cast. If Paramount can move fast enough they could get the origin movie into theaters by 2026—in time for Star Trek’s 60th anniversary.

‘Star Trek 4’ Removed From Paramount Picture’s Release Calendar

Fool me once … ( also I want a movie but until someone gets a set built I’m not holding my breath )

I’m not pre-ordering my tickets…..

You would need a title and a premiere date to order tickets. This film has neither.

I’d wait to believe it until you actually see a movie trailer for it. Noah Hawley was in the casting stage when they cancelled his Trek movie. They might have even started on the sets.

The film is on Noah’s IMDB Credits list…

Yep. I heard ferries exist too!

Car ferries?

Even now, it potentially doesn’t matter. They could pull a Zaslav and shelve the film after it was all but released.

I won’t believe it until my butt is in the theater seat and the film starts playing.

We don’t need the origin story. We have it already. It was called “Enterprise”.

I didn’t realize there was such a large interest in a Star Trek origin movie. It’s their money to burn.

I still believe this is their way of rebooting the “prime” universe from the beginning and remaking it in a new image. I see no other point of doing an origin movie. First Contact and Star trek: Enterprise were origin enough IMO.

I don’t quite get it either. We already got that with First Contact and Enterprise. What else is there that could interest the general public.

Yeah, and for me, the period between First Contact and Enterprise just doesn’t seem that exciting. The period between Enterprise and the Nero incursion would be more interesting, I guess.

They wrote that the origin film would be “set decades before the original 2009 Star Trek film”. That film (in-universe) is set in 2233 (Nero incursion) and 2258 (main plot) respectively. So “decades before” would be after Enterprise, probably after the formation of the Federation, most probably before the Nero incursion, maybe around the turn of the century.

It’s just odd they are calling it an “origin” movie if it happens after Enterprise.

I’m curious what they mean by “origin”. The origin of Starfleet would be before Enterprise and the origin of the Federation would be after.

Also, the origin of Star Trek would have to be before the events of First Contact.

…assuming there is a concern about canon whatsoever, of course.

Many assumptions to be made at this point for sure.

Assuming this announcement doesn’t get added to the pile of previous unmade-movie announcements.

They’re calling it an origin movie to appeal to newcomers and casual fans.

Maybe we’ll see the founding of the Federation?

We already saw that in the infamous final episode of Enterprise. If they revisit that, they’d have to include the NX-01 crew and do a *lot* of deaging. 😉

They could show the first year of the Federation or something.

The obvious way to go is just do the Romulan war which leads into the founding of the Federation and what Enterprise was supposed to do.

That’s really the only thing fans actually want to see in terms of a prequel story.

Which was already scripted for Berman nearly 20 years ago by the band of brothers screenwriter.

Yep. I heard that’s what they were considering doing until the Kelvin movie got greenlit instead.

Overall the Kelvin movie was probably the better choice in terms of box office but I probably would’ve preferred the Romulan war idea because it did sound more original and different.

That’s something, the Romulan War. That’s a big event, it could have action and you probably can just invent your own characters.

Couldn’t they just carry on from the end instead of squeezing more new shows in between what we already have?

For how little Trek lore has fleshed out that imaginary bit of history, do we really need to be putting some detail to how we went from post-apocalyptic hellhole to utopian paradise in fifty years? Maybe some enterprising human stole a replicator off a Vulcan ship and reverse engineered it? Seeing the sausage being made may not be a great on screen adventure…

Eastern Europe isn’t the best example – while they’ve done okay extricating themselves from the communist wasteland, it was (and is) without its setbacks.

that’s what makes me so crazy. Discovery was the chance to reboot the “prime” universe but they have stubbornly stuck to this quisling versio

Not only that, they already did a Star Trek origin movie. Star TRek 2009. But sure lets put more money in it, have it fail, and then blame the box office on why we will never get more trek. Thats a great idea!

That was really a Kirk and Spock origin story. There’s a century of Federation/Starfleet before them that we know almost nothing about. Plenty of room for a good one-off story. Maybe a story 20-ish years before Discovery , with Captain April and Lt. Commander Pike? Could have a young Sarek, too.

First off do we even know what they mean by “origin”?

Could be about the founding of the federation, the Romulan War, or the early days of starfleet pre-Enterprise.

It may have nothing to do with Kirk and Spock, the Enterprise, might not be any kind of reboot or reset.

My gut says it’s set in the Kelvin timeline and it takes place post USS Kelvin but pre-2009 Trek. And I’m fine with that.

They already said it will be based in the prime universe, not the Kelvin. I don’t know why they framed that press release that way but I guess since the Kelvin movies are the current movies they wanted to make clear to people this movie is before all of that I guess.

And obviously will have nothing to do with Kirk and Spock because it will be before they were even born.

I agree. I’m not really interested in a ST origin film either, for the reasons you stated. I think, if they were to do one, it has to have some good hook. Say something like Kirk before Enterprise, or Robert April’s time on the Enterprise as its first captain, but I think that’s been pretty much done with Strange New Worlds.

Maybe Picard on the Stargazer before TNG?

Otherwise, you’ll be getting something with a cast of characters that you’ve never heard off, or, if you have, it’s been a line in an episode.

These announcements feel like Groundhog Day, don’t they? Maybe that’s the story they should tell.

A feature length version of Cause and Effect…

I’m guessing Romulan Star Empire Wars era setting.

Yeah, maybe it’s the concept Rick Berman pitched: a Romulan War film where the NX-01 is off vacationing at Risa.

How about Star Trek: Federation . Founding of the Federation, which is immediately followed by a crisis requiring the urgent launch of USS Federation (NCC-01). Scott Bakula has a cameo appearance as President Archer.

Here we go! :D

Star Trek Origins: The Future Begins

Yeah but it’s not as exciting when we literally have a thousand years of that future now.

This is why prequels bore so many people when we already know so much about the future it’s setting up.

At least with the Kelvin movies they were smart to not make it a traditional prequel and people still hated those too.

I will never understand the obsession of going backwards when you have a fanbase that is constantly begging to go forward and prequels don’t attract new fans at all because they are made for oddly old fans in mind. You only cared about how Anakin became Vader in the prequels if you watched the OT.

We really know almost nothing (in canon) about the entire century that elapses between Enterprise and Discovery , though. I would have preferred Kelvin Movie 4 or even a post-TNG original movie (maybe with Patrick Stewart making a cameo) but I could get behind a canon treatment about the first years of the Federation.

If it’s really something good or interesting fine. If it’s just ‘this is how the Federation was formed” we already got that already.

Now if it’s the Romulan war or something then that’s at least something people can get excited about. But yeah we already know how it ends so maybe that won’t be it either.

I just can’t really get to excited about a prequel movie.

Yeah, I think the Romulan war would be a great premise for a movie, BUT according to TOS the battles were fought with “primitive atomic weapons and in primitive space vessels which allowed no quarter, no captives, nor was there even ship-to-ship visual communication; therefore, no human, Romulan or ally has ever seen the other.”

In other words canon would have to be completely ignored – we all know Enterprise completely disregarded the TOS take of the war as the NX-01 had visual comms, phase cannons and photonic torpedoes. If the story is a good one, I am totally good with ignoring canon, but of course others are not.

Yeah that’s always the issue with the Romulan War thing, it’s really hard to make a compelling story about it when you are fighting it without directly engaging the enemy.

That said I’m 100% convinced they will just ignore that and do what they want or just find an excuse to change ot. Look at SNW, this the show that has shown the Gorn years before they were supposed to be seen and completely changed Khan’s original timeline using TCW as the reason..

Discovery had an entire Klingon War when that didn’t remotely exist in canon.

So yeah it probably won’t matter that much end of the day. They will just make what they want and then will use some excuse to do it. That’s been the case since Enterprise as you said.

Exactly! Very well put!! I just wish someone from TPTB would listen already!

Think about it prequels are easy to make because most of the writing is done for you. You don’t have to come up with where these characters will go.

Only if they are old characters though. But this sounds like Enterprise and not SNW and it will be all new characters.

So, it would be set after Enterprise and before the Kelvin fiasco. Awesome.

Probably the Romulan Wars. And with no Enterprise. Not excited

If only I could insert the Will Farrel “I don’t believe you!” GIF.

Whatever this turns out to be, hopefully it will be interesting. More likely it will turn out to be just another dead Trek movie project.

So many of these stories do seem to go absolutely nowhere! However, I am not as negative about an origin story as some fans are. At this point, I am more neutral on the movie. I can see that under the right circumstances it could be quite interesting. Although prequels can be a tough sell to Star Trek fans. Ultimately the fact that’s a movie could work in its favor though. Less storylines to produce over the years might help keep the story focused! Though I am not sure it would be a box office draw.

I’ll believe it when I’ve seen it in theaters, listened to TrekMovie’s review, and have the blu-ray on my shelf 4 months later.

Where to place the Blu-ray tho?

Before ST09 or after Beyond? …or.. Before TOS?

They go in order of release, for me. But could this be the first Trek film I don’t purchase on disc? Time may tell…

It’s an origin story taking place in the prime universe so it will go either before or after Enterprise basically.

I’ll believe it when it actually happens. Also, Seth Grahame-Smith is not a good writer, so that doesn’t bode well.

My thoughts exactly.

I liked the book Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but not the movie.

I absolutely loved the Lego Batman movie, though. If he is able to incorporate Trek lore with as much care as he did for Batman, it could turn out to be a very good movie after all.

I’ll believe it when I’m sat i theatre turning off my phone with my Star Trek Origins screensaver and eating popcorn out my STO popcorn bucket (the lid in shape of the Starfleet A insignia )

He co wrote The Flash right? I really liked that , I could imagine something similar happening with Nero as happened with Zod in that (going back to 1st film via timetravel)

This is what’s over at Box Office Mojo: Untitled Star Trek: Beyond Sequel (????)

Grain of salt, anyone?

There are apparently two movies planned. Origin and Trek 4…

Actually there are three now including one that we all thought was DOA two minutes after it was announced.

Three movies in development from a studio who has cancelled four of them for 8 years now. And this will be the fourth new script for the next Kelvin movie.

That’s why everyone is very very confident this one is happening for sure. 🙄

The only thing we can take to the bank is we will see Section 31, starring Academy Award winner Michelle Yeoh!!

Pretty much.

And a studio that is broke and in debt with junk status. None of these will likely be made or just the super cheapy origin movie if they can keep the budget low.

My thoughts exactly as well.

I’m pretty sure you got your facts wrong.

Sigh. Why do the powers that be always want to go backward in the ST timeline and do origin stories and such?

Lack of confidence in new ideas and to make it as cheaply as possible, are two things that come to mind right away.

It’s simple. They don’t want all that trek nerd baggage. They want a movie anyone would go to see and understand.

How’s that working for them?

You don’t get it.

I don’t get it either? It’s not like the prequel stuff has been huge home runs or big money makers.

The Star Wars prequels made a lot of money. That’s what Paramount still looks at, even though they have yet to duplicate that financial success.

Yes but that’s STAR WARS! It’s going to make a lot of money period. And those prequels came out when it was just the OT and nothing else for literally decades. There was a lot of hype just returning to those stories.

This is not the same thing, especially when we already had so many prequels in Trek now and with mixed results. That said I’m not saying it can’t be successful but I don’t see any huge hype around it either because most fans just seem to want to go forward and not backwards.

All the negativity over this ‘announcement’ is well deserved. Just make a fcking movie already Paramount, Jesus.

But I suspect IF this one is real it’s probably a much cheaper movie being new actors and maybe something with a lot less explosions and FX. I suspect it will probably be around $100 million.

It’s certainly doesn’t sound like something they are pushing to make a billion dollars or anything. Only people who cares about a prequel will be mostly old fans and even they aren’t exactly excited about yet another prequel judging by all the reactions so far. Maybe they will attract an A list star or a well respected one to bring more hype to it.

But same time I been pushing to just do something NEW with new characters and setting forever now. Stop trouting out Kirk and Picard, take a real chance with the franchise for a change. I was hoping it would be Post Nemesis but I should be happy I finally got half of what I wanted lol.

But I’ll believe it when I see it. I have literally been saying this line for six years now and I’m really tired of saying it. 🙄

Yup, exactly. Assuming it even happens, the premise sounds weak. Not surprised.

Yep. Unless it’s something truly mind blowing it’s not going to elicit a lot of excitement. Sure we’ll all go lol but I don’t see this thing having any real pull beyond the true believers.

It probably got the greenlight because its really cheap and it’s becoming embarrassing how long this franchise has languished.

I really only go to movie theaters to see Trek films (much prefer the comforts of home to see movies), so yup I’ll be going, good or bad. And yes, it is really pathetic the way this franchise has been treated on the big screen for the past 20 years. Disgraceful.

Ummm… what premise?? The only thing we know is that it is an origin movie. Nothing else. There IS no premise yet…

I think he means just another origin story itself feels a bit tired. But yes we don’t specifically know what that means yet but anything before TOS at this point just doesn’t really get a lot of fans all that hot and bother.

Whatever it ends up being it’s just filling in to more history we already know.

I get it. But no matter what era they make a movie in, there will be complaints. We have done prequels – some fans hate that. We have done same era as TNGish – fans complained. Likewise, we have had a show set in the future (soon to be another) – fans complained. There aren’t many options left.

Before TOS: Enterprise, JJ movies, Discovery, SNW just after TNG era: Picard, Prodigy, Lower Decks Future: Discovery, Starfleet Academy

Do they just make things in the era of TNG, DS9 and Voyager? No matter what is produced, there will always be a fan base that is unhappy.

Most people seem to really want the Legacy show though. I think for the majority of fans they may not agree with everything but there is definitely a sense they rather go forwards than backwards and why 4 of the 5 shows are post Nemesis shows.

And if you gave the option between a Legacy movie or this prequel idea, it wouldn’t be close.

I just don’t think making a prequel movie is the best idea out there. And I don’t think new audiences will remotely care one way or the other.

I’m going to start reporting you now. One guy got the boot for being an obsessive troll and like you was already banned before anyway.

Leave me alone from this point on. I mean it.

What a total disappointment. I wanted to see the Kelvin crew return. It’s going to be 10 years between films.

Please be Kirk and Spock at least.

Check the first paragraph of the article out again. This one is presumably being developed ‘in parallel’ to the Kelvin crew sequel.

Recast Kirk and Spock, I presume?

I wouldn’t be surprised if the main character is Kirk’s great grandfather, Tiberius something or other.

And not surprised there was no announcement of the next JJ verse movie. I predicted a few weeks ago that one wouldn’t get made by 2026 or the 60th anniversary. Frankly I don’t even know why they are even bothering with it anymore? Whenever it’s supposed to come out it’s already going to be the last one and over 10 years since the last one came out.

What’s even the point? They are clearly moving on from it.

As far as the origin movie why not just make it for the 60th anniversary? Why rush it? It’s already been nearly a decade, what’s one more year at this point and you can Marley it better in an anniversary year.

Its the reverse of ST 6, here we getting the prequel movie instead of the final cast film (for the anniversary)

Someone on another board said we are probably getting the sequel to First Contact so it would make sense to have it for the 6Oth anniversary 30 years apart lol.

“[S]et decades before the original 2009 Star Trek film?”

Gimme Archer & T’Pol, or else…

Neither actor has any interest in returning to Star Trek, so that won’t happen.

I’ve only heard Bakula say that about Quantum Leap , not Enterprise . And this is a feature film, a lot harder for an actor to turn down. I agree with his decision to ignore the QL reboot (that series didn’t capture the heart and soul of the original at all) but if Paramount approached him with “we want you to play President Archer for a few scenes in this movie” I doubt he’d say no.

No, no no. You’ve got it all wrong. It’s a story about a little design firm vying for the chance to design the Enterprise. It’s a story about a plucky band of mechanical engineers and physicists who come together to do the best pitch of their lives in a bidding war with three other firms. So, an origin story…from a certain point of view. ;)

I would watch,THAT!

I would write that!

I would direct that! (If I was Christopher Nolan)

No, I want Nolan doing ThePrisoner! He’s already got a script from the guy who wrote 12 Monkeys and the best stuff in Blade Runner, from over a decade back.

You probably meant it as a joke, but I’m also intrigued by this idea :D

Charlie Kaufmann does star trek.

Sure, you can store anti-matter in a glass jar. What could possibly go wrong?

Y’know, I know this is said partly in jest, but I wouldn’t mind that kind of movie if it was sort of a space race / WWII / Cold War drama, kind of a mix of Oppenheimer and The Right Stuff.

There’s a geo (spatio?) political angle (firm up the borders of the Federation, mitigate threats, and establish new allies while keeping up the exploration / first contact initiatives), the pressure on the engineering team to deliver groundbreaking new tech (and probably the cost of failed experiments, accidents, etc.), and then recruiting and training a new kind of crew – a starship crew (as Captain Merrick described them in ‘Bread and Circuses’.)

In essence, the origin of Starfleet as we know it – the first long-duration missions, the best of the best crewmembers, cross-trained, multidisciplinary, and for the first time, widely multi-species, etc.

Glad you all like. Paramount, you can send the check to: bmar, care of….

I’m thinking there’s going to be peace in the Middle East and nuclear fusion power is going to be a reality before they ever get back to the theaters.

Once upon a time I enjoyed Star Trek. Since the Nu Trek era began. I havent enjoyed any of the story arcs. They are just too aweful. There is a multitude of reasons why throught the web. Strange New Worlds S1 corrected course, however S2 not so. There are forces at work at Paramount. They are hell bent to destroy Star Trek. If Kurtzman and crew are in charge of the new movie. Get ready for more fantasy drama nonsense, and less plausable sci-fi.

Same here. I can’t get into NuTrek much at all. It feels like a shell of the golden era. For me that will always be 1966-2005.

But if others like it and getting new fans I’m very happy for them.

Same here. I’ve found a few gems in SNW S1, PIC S3, and S1 of Prodigy, but otherwise have been very disappointed in “NuTrek.” Of course I wish the franchise the best, but so far it’s been more misses than hits for me.

Yes I truly love Picard season 3! The best thing to come out of NuTrek so far. I don’t hate SNW but it railroads canon too much for my taste but it does feel like Star Trek again.

I haven’t seen Prodigy yet but I plan to watch it when season 2 begins and will watch season 1 before that one. Everyone kept saying it’s for kids and I’m far from a kid these days lol. But others here convinced me it’s a show for adults too so will give it a go

Wow, hell-bent on destroying Trek. Hell-bent, you say!! Just a tough melodramatic, are you?

Really don’t care about prequels and just want to keep going forward. Why not a movie in the 25th or 26th century with new crew and characters?

I may care more if Archer is involved or something. But I suspect this movie will bomb like the last one did. Only fans cares about prequels. New fans won’t care at all.

At least it’s in the prime universe again I guess.

But 25th or 26th century would still be a prequel to Discovery’s 32nd century :D

That doesn’t bother me because we don’t know anything about those time periods. We already know plenty about everything before TOS because it’s all been said or told now

Yeah I said this to another member the other day discussing any post Picard stories and that it will be completely new stories in a period we don’t know so it’s not the same thing. When you’re doing something like a TOS prequel you only have so much room and while it can certainly be interesting and creative it basically just like filling in to more stuff we already know.

That said the Section 31 movie time period is at least more interesting because it covers a much wider time period and they can be a lot more freer with the technology, etc so looking forward to that at least.

Yes I will admit although I’m not a big fan of the Space Nazi the time period of the movie intrigues me more. I always been curious of this period and the lead up to TNG, mostly because we know very little about it.

Discovery (in my view) kind of ruined everything in the Trek timelime. Just my opinion. Anyone who wants to just forget it happened, I’m in. Kidding, not kidding.

Agreed! I also don’t think it will be allegorical science fiction or be anything thought provoking. It will be a fast paced action adventure story that’s empty of depth and soul. Modern Star Trek is more interested in spectacle than compelling stories.

I’d guess that it means “origin of the TOS crew,” but that’s kind of weird, because we saw that in 2009.

Maybe this time they’ll start when they’re toddlers. (I kid, but not really). :)

They are going to re-do ‘A night in Sickbay’ like they did with Wrath of Khan/Into Darkness. It’ll be the same but different…..

Could this be their way of doing a George Kirk movie?

I would want to watch that, colour me intrigued…

“set decades before the original 2009 Star Trek film.”

Original 2009 Sta Trek film Sounds so wrong.

there is only two star trek origin stories i want to see the formation of the federation and it’s first few years if they have to adapt the rise of the federation novels for the movie and the origins of the borg they could adapt the plot ffor thet from the star trek destiny novels for a movie

Spot on, on both points!

2025? I hope it works out…

First we hear we are getting a Star Fleet Space Academy series that no one wants. The idea was mentioned in the 1980’s and shot down by fans. Now a retake on a Star Trek Origins films. Is any one currently running the Star Trek franchise in TV/streaming or film even listening to what the fans both old and new are saying?

It would seem not, sadly. How about establishing the time period between TUC and TNG, there’s a literal ton of stories to tell there? How the possibilities for storytelling within the franchise have been squandered over the years makes me frustrated, and frankly confused. SO many missed opportunities.

The upcoming section 31 movie will be set during that time frame as we know a young Rachel Garrett who later in life will be the captain of the enterprise c and defend the Klingon colony of narendra 3 will be in the movie maybe we will get to see the ent-b also again

Pointless movie as no audience will come see it at best it will make half its budget back. I mean they spent $250M on the 2009 movie and it showed on screen….you already know they are not spending that level otherwise it would be a Kelvin cast sequel!

I believe they spent just under 160 mil on the 09 (not counting the interest payments for holding the finished film for six months to get a summer release, or prints/advertising.) You’re probably thinking of BEYOND with the 250 number.

I still can’t see the money on screen in the 09, shooting in the damn brewery was Corman-level cheap.

The Numbers have the 09 costs 140 and BO Mojo sez 150, so yeah, way under the 250m you mention.

Can the ethos of Trek be distilled by JJ? Bob orci was bad for trek.

Kurtzman seemed to fall into trap w/discovery season 1.

Season 2, Picard, Lower Decks and SNW definitely sealed my thinking that Trek was in right hands.

Is section 31 and Rachel Garrett the right pivot for Trek? I thought 24th/25th century had plenty of stories to still tell.

Enterprise C, and possibly Tasha Yar/Sela after the events of Yesterday’s Enterprise! This should reboot TNG/Picard if ST: Legacy doesn’t happen.

Lower Decks makes me laugh Picard made me cry (good) SNW made me feel like Kurtzman should be trusted 💯

Great. Abrams ruined Star Wars and he’s finishing of Star Trek.

JJ had a planed out story plot for what he wanted to happen in the sequels but rian johnson chose to deviate from what jj had payed out so when jj returned for episode 9 he had to try and make the best of it and make his original story plot work but with the changes Johnson had made altering it so he had to come up with another evil sith mastermind and chose palpatine and he did course correct Rey’s lineage though it was different from who he had initially planned it to be and with Carrie fishers untimely passing he had to rewrite more and he had Luke show up as a force ghost to help rey when she returned to ach-to as apparently he was never going to have Luke die until the the final battle

I hope it has nudity

….and “Invincible” level action. It’ll be a hard R Quinton Tarentino could love.

Yes, we are on the same page.

CinemaCon basically works like a network upfront. You see clips and hear a lot of announcements. When there’s no cast or start date for announced projects, there’s maybe a 50/50 chance that the project will actually move forward (I was with a former employer for over 8 years and we announced a lot of stuff that generated a lot of buzz but then never materialized).

I think Brian Robbins will be gone within the next 12 months and if Robbins is pushed out this film is dead in the water.

This is probably the right answer.

I have next to no faith this will actually happen but they only have themselves to blame lol.

I remember a former poster kept saying ‘well this a new regime ‘ they aren’t the old guys’. Uh huh. It just shows end of the day they might be different but they still answer to the same shareholders and they know another Trek film is risky. Maybe this will finally get beyond a script this time but no one will be convinced until they start shooting the thing.

Rehashing old fandom letter campaign complaints from 40 years ago, don’t equate to the modern sci-fi fan, let alone the majority of Star Trek fans of 2024. The majority of complaints in the article comments are that there isn’t enough new future timeline Star Trek, so why would people NOT want a Star Fleet Academy series – new stories, new characters, new ships, new alien species/planets etc? An Origin movie is a vague enough description that it’s probably likely that the fandom can’t come anywhere close to a correct theory on when in the Trek timeline, this movie could be set.

I agreed with a commenter earlier, a George Kirk prequel movie would satisfy a lot of the fans, and hopefully generate enough interest for new and casual Star Trek moviegoers to warrant their going to a cinema complex. As to want the hardcore Star Trek fandom really want? There is too much dissent and bitter recriminations gone by, for any serious agreement by the fandom of their requirements, to stick for any longer than the next Trek major media article to be issued. And even if a majority agreement could be achieved – then we have the Mount Everest of EP Alex Kurtzman / Secret Hideout control of Trek production, to climb. A movie or series could have a billion-dollar budget, stellar A-list cast and crew, critical media acclaim for the story / screenplay. A favourable release timing and viral marketing, but fall at the last hurdle – the box office, due to the mountain of hate piled up against Paramount, Kurzman and his associates.

Now, as to the overall custodianship of the Trek franchise and its operation as a business, in general by Paramount, and its contracted creatives? Well, that’s a whole Hollywood chapter in itself. And is any of that even relevant in the long term, with the behind-the-scenes Harry Potter Wizard chess moves that are going on at the studio ownership, and network controlling interest levels? Apologies for the extended and extensive reply.

The first thing to do in order make a successful Star Trek movie is to ignore Star Trek fans.

God, please, no origin stories.

Star Trek: The Beginning, Part 1 — A Final Frontier Origin Story

Star Trek has always been a production dealing with many human issues pushing open the veils of awkwardness, embarrassment, and unaddressed behaviors that represent our culture planet wide. Thank You Star Trek. The one thing Paramount+ did that was just totally in bad taste was cancel Prodigy, bunch of morons.

Every fan’s preferences are different, but over the years I’ve ended up streamlining various ‘franchises’ I enjoy to my own liking when it comes to a re-watch – and these days my own limited Star Trek ‘canon’ purely consists of kicking things off with ‘The Cage’ pilot storyline….followed by my specific favourite TOS episodes in ‘production order’ (starting with ‘Where No Man Has Gone Before’, and skipping ‘The Menagerie’ two-part storyline)….followed by all the TOS movie storylines….and ending the Kirk crew’s adventures with ‘The Undiscovered Country’ as my preferred send-off for them all….then skip the antics of the ‘Generations’ movie, and instead continue on with my specific favourite TNG episodes (starting with the ‘Encounter At Farpoint’ introduction to Picard and his crew)….and then conclude the entire thing with the ‘First Contact’ movie’s storyline – which covers the development of ‘warp drive’, bringing everything full circle, and giving me all the ‘origin’ specifics I need..

All other ‘Trek-related shows and movies since then remain firmly on my ‘one-watch-only’ list, but I’m more than content with what I’ve outlined above.

I don’t know if I’ll ever get a ‘Star Trek’ movie which goes much deeper than glossy ‘pew-pew’ action and explosions in the future, but I remain hopeful.there might be a storyline that I really like again.

In the meantime, for my latest ‘alien contact’ fix, I’ve just finished up enjoying the excellent ‘Three-Body’ show’s inventive storyline and characters – the subtitled, 30-episode one produced by Tencent, which is currently available on YouTube and Amazon Prime (not the muddled 8-episode ‘3 Body Problem’ version by Netflix) – So much so, that I’m intending to buy the actual trilogy of books by the Chinese author, as I can’t wait for the next season to be made to find out what happens next. Some big ideas to come by all accounts, and I’m there for a bit more of that. .

The Netflix series is Superior

You’re welcome to your own preference of course.

But I far preferred the slow burn of the mystery and character build-ups in the Tencent version compared to the condensed and altered Netflix adaption. I just happen to find it a more satisfying and riveting version overall – and I will always prefer the way the ‘Judgment Day’ tanker got ‘nano-spliced’ in the Tencent version. Such an awesome sequence from start to finish!

Anyway, if the Netflix version actually gets a second season, I’ll certainly check it out too….but I am definitely looking forward to the next season of the Tencent show, which has been greenlit already.

The Tencent version is just boring to me and you can feel the Party’s hands all over it. Glad you liked it though.

I did indeed like it. A lot. I hadn’t read the books as I said, so didn’t know what to expect. Having read up on a few things since watching both shows, it seems that that there’s plenty of others that much prefer the slower build-up of the Tencent version too.

While it doesn’t include the likes of the brutal Netflix show’s opening, the hardship that the main female character endured was covered sufficiently for me throughout the show, and I’m just glad that I got to know her story by watching this version first.

And I sure didn’t miss the amount of unnecessary swearing that the Netflix version included either, which gave the Tencent version additional points. I don’t appreciate it my ‘Star Trek’ viewing, and I didn’t need it in the telling of this memorable sci-fi tale either.

And just to add, that even better for me is the fact that there’s now been a 26-episode ‘Anniversary Edition’ version of the Tencent show released, which has been re-edited by the director.

It seemingly cuts down on some ‘filler’ run-time that was added for the sake of the show’s producers initially, so that things will follow the original book’s contents even more closely now, and improve on the pacing of the show overall. I’m very pleased about that.

Whats so bad about swearing? The human race has been swearing since language was invented and we’ll be swearing 10,000 years from now.

Again, it’s just a personal preference thing.

There’s plenty of hard-edged movies and shows that contain wall-to-wall swearing which I can watch if I’m in the mood for them. But other times I’m equally inclined to watch something with less harsh language throughout.

I really disliked the F-bombs which the ‘Picard’ show included for instance, and didn’t think the ‘Star Trek’ franchise was the better for it. And I doubt that I would have enjoyed the Tencent ‘Three-Body’ adaption any better if it had contained bad language too.

Anyway, back to this supposed ‘Star Trek origin movie. I’d like to think it won’t be littered with F-bombs either.

PG13 are allowed 1 f bomb (like Guardians 3 I finally saw other night). And Trek is very comfortable to f bombs in Picard etc so safe to say we’ll be getting Treks first movie f bomb next film :)

Data said “Oh $hit” in Generations.

Which was very mild compared to what we heard in ‘Picard” Not that I would wish to show my younger family members the ‘Picard’ show anyway, considering it turned out to be so dire overall.

However, Data’s reaction was hilarious in that scene’s context I recall. Just a pity the rest of the movie was such a dud, and not part of my own ‘Star Trek’ canon anymore.

I’ll always wonder what the Tarantino script would have given us….

we don’t need origin stories for everything! in media res is the way to go – almost always – TOS just dumps you right in the middle of events without even the clunky intros of TNG Encounter at Farpoint.

If this movie does well will IT get an origin story? We’re going to end up at the pool of goo at the dawn of humankind waiting for Picard and Q to show up…

im happy with any good trek news… even if they made a direct sequel to the final frontier… but how many origin stories do we need? i’d be happy if someone forged a path forward and created new things…

So this one is set in the five-minute period between Enterprise and Discovery? Or the as-yet unexplored time between April 5th 2063 and Enterprise where it’s “stone knives and bear skins” and no Trek tech to speak of? Enterprise was the prequel! How’d that one work out?

If the movie is made ,I will judge it then.

I wanted the 4th Kelvin, do they know who their audience is? Nobody i know, Star Trek fan or general audience bothered to go see Beyond. It was like Nemesis all over again. The trailer was terrible, the movie was kind of meh to be honest. So in the intervening years since the 2009 somewhere they lost the audience. Star Trek 2009 was an event movie, and 2015 Force Awakens was as well. Good job letting JJ go to Disney so Star Trek died as a film series.

I’m guessing the fourth movie is still too costly to risk making another one at least right now.

Someone threw out an an interesting theory on the last thread discussing this for the 47th time that they suggested Paramount have no plans to actually make another Kelvin movie but just as a rouse for the next company that buys the studio.

It really makes sense at this point, they can dangle the idea the movie is in ‘development’ and then when someone actually buys it they can just decide to make it or cancel it.

I mean it doesn’t sound crazy considering where we are. It’s a movie that is working with their fourth new writer but there is still no director or even a starting date of any kind within the the next two years.

Them you have this origin movie that was just announced a few months ago and that’s already scheduled to come out next year. My guess is it will probably cost half of what another Kelvin movie would be. But yeah who knows if that will get made either, but it has a better chance than a Kelvin movie.

Ikr, Beyond totally killed interest the series , the Fast Furious teaser trailer was bad, the second trailer gave away the twist, the audience (who cared about that stuff) knew JJ had crossed over to SW (which gave the behemoth of SW7 even more publicity, making ST feel less an event), there was no hook for fans or even general moviegoers like there was for ST09/ID (like if Shatner had returned or the Borg being the villain again) and nothing ‘big’ happening in the canon like the previous ones (Orcis ST3 had the timeline under threat of being wiped out, which would’ve been a huge deal) the eventual movie was kind of meh as you say and was just abit nerdy and Insurrection looking (like it was for hard core fans only).

At the time i had some friends (some who were casual Trek fans, and some even disliked Trek) who thought 09/ID were awesome and they didn’t even bother to see Beyond bc of the trailers and the general vibe (its like it felt like abit of a turkey, like other big sequels/remakes that summer, Ghostbusters, Independence Day 2 etc, )

I actually agree with all of this and I personally think Beyond was the best of the three.

But you’re right, there was really no hook for the movie and that first trailer was just awful. It almost kept me away from watching it.

But the biggest problem is the new fans just lost interest by then. I always bring up the fact I had three friends who had never seen Star Trek before went to go see the first film and generally loved it. I thought it was truly bad but fine for a brainless action movie.

But by the time Beyond showed up all three had zero interest in the franchise by that point. They just stopped caring. I remember asking one of them that saw the first two movies in the theater if he planned to watch Beyond and his response was no because now Star Wars was back and he rather just watch that. And he thought it looked boring.

That’s the entire problem trying to get new fans onboard and a lot of them were like my friends who just saw these movies as another summer action movie but nothing beyond that. They never cared about the franchise itself and so it was very easy to move on when the next shiny toy showed up.

That’s exactly why I don’t see another one doing all that well because to newbies it’s still Star Trek and it’s not cool enough to fully get into and will probably bomb again unless the budget is just super low.

I watched Guardians Vol 3 the other night on dvd and it (and previous 2) kind of felt the same as Beyond abit , the look, the vibe, the action, set pieces, the humour, the rock songs etc . so really with Guardians (that Beyond tried to ape), along with the return of SW, Trek 3 had no chance with casual movie goers who would just consider it Guardians/SW lite , (between the generational event of SW7 and the next GOTG vol 2) .. Even more reason to have gone with Orci’s more ‘star trek’ version of ST3 featuring Shatner

I can’t name anyone who actually wants an origin movie. By the way, didn’t we get that one with First Contact already anyway?

It’s not up to you or anyone you pretend to know.

Another prequel? This is getting ridiculous now. Remember when Star Trek used to go forwards? Enough already!

Kurtzman said he didn’t have the authority to greenlight legacy. I wonder if that will be like Bennet’s academy years and never happen.

18 months is not enough time for a movie of this size unless this is ready to shoot in july.

The JJ-verse is an aberration no one is particularly a fan of. There is no one who wants to how that mess started. It’s done nothing but foul everything that went before, leaving ST-ENT, of all things, as the only remaining official classic canon. Bugger that.

I need Star Trek that is hopeful, aspirational, and inspirational. 15 yrs later neither Bad Robot or Secret Hideout has done anything close to that. Sec 31 and Starfleet Academy aren’t anything viewers want. I wish they’d just stop.

lol,if you say so…

EXCLUSIVE: Former Anonymous writer of Trek 4 shares his experience

Interviewer: Hello, we are here today to talk to a former writer for the very very very (like really very) long delayed fourth Kelvin movie. With the announcement of a prequel movie being released instead and yet ANOTHER new set of writers for the next Kelvin movie, we reached out to the only person who returned our calls; a former writer from the 2023 project.

To give us an honest insight into his experience he wishes to remain anonymous. For the sake of this interview he will be simply referred to as ‘GotohellParamount’. Thank you for meeting with me today.”

GotohellParamount’: “You’re welcome.”

Interviewer: “It sounds like your experience working on the last movie didn’t end too well. How is your relationship with the studio today?”

GotohellParamount: “Bleep them in their bleeping bleepholes. I hope they all die from bleeping Ebola.”

Interviewer: ‘That’s some pretty colorful metaphors. Can I ask what happened?”

GotohellParamount: “Their bleeps that’s what. We spent a year working on that movie. We lost the director to go work for Marvel because these bleepholes kept bleeping us around. I got so frustrated I finally texted the Head Studio Guy and said ‘will you people stop bleeping around!? Get off your bleeps and let’s make a movie already!!’

Three weeks went by and I finally got a response from them. It simply read ‘K’. Bleepholes!!! By the way you’re not going to ‘bleep’ any of these words out are you?”

Interviewer: “Um…of course not. Can you tell us a little about what the movie was about?”

GotohellParamount: “The gist was a huge black ship comes from the 25th century to the 23rd century wiping out solar systems in the Federation. It was a new villain who wanted…wait for it…vengeance. That bleep was going to be bleeping awesome!!”

Interviewer: “So who was going to be the villain?”

GotohellParamount: “That’s the greatest part of it all. He was going to call himself…you ready: Kaos. JJ Abrams himself came up with that name. But then the true reveal was that he was indeed Kirk’s great great great great great great great great great great grandson from the future and came to stop Kirk from destroying his planet so he had to destroy the Federation first. We were even thinking Chris Pine can play both parts but Paramount was worried he would demand twice the salary.”

Interviewer: “I interviewed Chris Pine a few months ago and he was hoping there would be more scenes of him riding another motorcycle. Did you include that in the script?”

GotohellParamount: “Do you remember the ending of Mission Impossible 2 with the motorcycle duel? Pretty much the same ending with our movie with Kirk versus his evil grandson; except it was going to take place either on Romulus or in San Francisco. We were still figuring it out. There was even talk of it happening on a lava planet… but that would’ve ballooned the budget.

Interviewer: “Sounds very exciting. How was he going to wipe out the solar systems?”

GotohellParamount: “The ship he was on had the power to destroy stars by breaking down their fusion reactions. The FX was going to be bleeping sick.”

Interviewer: “Wait so the ship was a…Star destroyer?”

GotohellParamount: “Yep but to get around copyright issues JJ wanted to call it a Destroyer of Stars. The man is a bleeping genius I tell you.”

Interviewer: “It’s definitely a name.”

GotohellParamount: “We were so proud of the script. We gave it to JJ to read it. After he put it down, he took off his glasses put his hand on my shoulders and said ‘this is the most original Star Trek story I’ve ever read and I’ve read three of them.’ You have no idea how much that meant coming from such a visionary like him.”

Interviewer: “I’m sure you were. Was there any casting possibilities before it was shut down?”

GotohellParamount: “Was there?? We reached out to some incredible actors! Robert Downey Jr, Florence Pugh, Emily Blunt, Cillian Murphy and Matt Damon. We wanted him to actually play Kirk’s evil grandson.

Interviewer: “Wait… weren’t all of them in Oppenheimer?’

GotohellParamount: “(Hard shrug)! I don’t know I haven’t seen it yet. Unfortunately Matt Damon’s agent was the only one who bothered to call us back. Apparently he always wanted to work with John Cho. Go figure? Too late now unfortunately.”

Interviewer: “Well that’s all the time we have. Thank you for your incredible and honest insight. Any thoughts on the new movie announcement or the chances either one will actually get made?”

GotohellParamount: (Laughs for three minutes). That’s it.”

Interviewer: “Thank you.’

I laugh every.single.time! 😂

Well done per usual.

Nice. Don’t forget to throw the Beastie Boys in there someplace…wouldn’t be a Kelvin film without them…

Haha correct. How I let that one slide you got me. Having an off day I guess!

This was indeed hilarious! 😂

I love how you parody JJ Abrams. He doesn’t seem to have an original bone in his body looking at both his Star Trek and Star Wars movies.

Lol nope! I still remember watching Honest Trailer for Star Trek Into Dumbness and they even showed how much that movie copied the first one lol.

The fact both movies ended back at San Francisco when your series takes place in the freaking galaxy should tell you everything wrong with these movies.

that actually sounds like a legit potential Kelvin ST4 – Kirks evil great great grandson Kaos (Matt Damon) comes back to 23rd century to kill Kirk in his big star destroyer (sorry ‘destroyer of stars’) ship! Brilliant!!

That’s the insane part, this idea could actually pass for a Kelvin movie lol.

Thank you! 😁

Coming out of my lurker mode to say this is brilliant. I laughed my bleep off!

So glad you enjoyed it my friend! 😄

I bleeping love making them lol.

Another prequel? Why can’t they come up with new material?

How Long It Would Take To Watch All of Star Trek (Yes, ALL of It)

Over the five decades since its inception, the Star Trek universe continues to inspire new generations of Trekkies. The original series that began in the mid-1960s has spawned countless spinoffs in television shows, as well as animation and feature films, some of which are still under production.

Someone new to this massive franchise may be wondering just how long it will take to watch all of Star Trek. With so many series and films in the catalog, catching up on everything may seem like a daunting task. Even some diehard fans have no idea just how many episodes of Star Trek there are. This list will divide the franchise into different categories to show just how long it takes to watch them. This way, consuming the entire Star Trek saga won't seem so intimidating after all.

Updated by Robert Vaux on June 8, 2024: Star Trek stands at something of a crossroads with Discovery finishing its five-season run and Lower Decks preparing for its fifth and final season. Despite that, the franchise has a very bright future, with Star Trek: Strange New Worlds carrying the banner forward and projects like Star Trek: Section 31 in active production. The article has been updated to include information on ongoing Star Trek series, as well as new details on all of the entries in the franchise.

13 The Original Series Introduces Viewers to the Cast and Universe of Star Trek

Every star trek role played by clint howard, from tos to discovery.

Although Clint Howard has played four different roles across four eras of Star Trek, he's also the only actor to be on both TOS and Discovery to date.

For a series with so much significance in television and pop culture history, it's surprising to find out that Star Trek: The Original Series lasted for just 79 episodes over three seasons. Ironically, that's shorter than the "five-year mission" it touts in its opening credits. That was enough for it to enter syndication, however, which is where the bulk of its fans first discovered it.

Each TOS episode lasts around 50 minutes for a total of 3,950 minutes, meaning it will take just under 66 hours to watch them all uninterrupted. In other words, The Original Series can be finished in less than a week with constant binging. Even those who don't have that much time can finish watching the show in under a month by screening 2–3 episodes an evening. Unlike most subsequent Star Trek series, TOS episodes are designed to be interchangeable, so switching the viewing order won't disrupt any larger plot threads.

Star Trek: The Original Series

In the 23rd Century, Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise explore the galaxy and defend the United Federation of Planets.

12 The Next Generation Found an Audience Starved for Science Fiction

Star Trek: The Next Generation was so successful during its seven-season run that it's arguably more popular today than The Original Series . It successfully released the series from covering the exploits of just one crew, and cemented the formula that every Star Trek series since then has followed. The Next Generation 's episode count topped its predecessor by almost a hundred for a total of 178 episodes, each with an approximately 44-minute runtime.

That adds up to a series total of 7,832 minutes or 130.5 hours — just under five and half days . If the viewer is free from work for about two weeks, The Next Generation series can be completed with ease. While it adopts a more formal structure than TOS -- with the characters advancing in age and experience from season to season -- most of its episodes are either stand-alone, or one of a two-part arc, making them very easy to enjoy in small 1-2 episode doses.

Star Trek: The Next Generation

Set almost 100 years after Captain Kirk's 5-year mission, a new generation of Starfleet officers sets off in the U.S.S. Enterprise-D on its own mission to go where no one has gone before.

11 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Proved There Was Room for Multiple Star Trek Series

How star trek: discovery's trill story connects to dax on deep space nine.

Star Trek: Discovery returned to the Trill home world in Season 5 for a mission with a symbiont host that connects to Jadzia Dax on Deep Space Nine.

Near the end of Star Trek: The Next Generation 's run, Paramount created another series that could run alongside it. The new series broke from Star Trek tradition by being set on a space station, Deep Space 9, that connected the Federation to the Milky Way galaxy. It explored the darker side of the Final Frontier, culminating in the terrible threat of the Dominion War that forced the entire Alpha Quadrant to stand together.

Another breakout success, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine ran for another seven seasons from 1993 to 1999. Those seven seasons, comprise 176 episodes, each running an average 45 minutes. That's a grand total of 7920 minutes or exactly 132 hours. People willing to watch five episodes a night could likely finish it within a month's time. Deep Space Nine was the first Star Trek series to embrace longer and more complicated plot arcs. Viewers should be prepared for longer binges, or else break big story lines down into multiple viewing sessions.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

In the vicinity of the liberated planet of Bajor, the Federation space station Deep Space Nine guards the opening of a stable wormhole to the far side of the galaxy.

10 Star Trek Voyager Continued To Break From Traditions

Star Trek: Voyager took over after Star Trek: The Next Generation ended, ensuring there were still two Star Trek series on the air. The series went back to setting the series on the starship Voyager. T he Voyager is run by Captain Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew,) the franchise's first female lead , who aims to get her people home after being stranded. It took big risks on wild story lines, resulting in some of the saga's best episodes as well as its most bizarre.

Star Trek Voyager was another success for Paramount and their new network UPN, running for seven seasons. Like the prior show, each episode ran 45 minutes. At 172 episodes, that places the full series runtime at 7,740 minutes or 129 hours. This is another series that would require roughly a month of binging to get through. Its format is reasonably loose, however, and individual episodes can be readily watched without having to commit to anything more in a single viewing.

Star Trek Voyager

Pulled to the far side of the galaxy, where the Federation is seventy-five years away at maximum warp speed, a Starfleet ship must cooperate with Maquis rebels to find a way home.

9 Star Trek: Enterprise Is Star Trek's Last TV Series for Over a Decade

After running multiple Star Trek television series throughout the '90s, the franchise was gradually beginning to cool off. Finally, Paramount launched one more series, Star Trek: Enterprise . Unlike the others, Enterprise was intended as a prequel even to the original series. It followed Earth's first attempt at trying to make First Contact with other alien races. Led by Scott Bakula's Captain Archer, the first U.S.S. Enterprise paved the way for the founding of the United Federation of Planets.

Star Trek: Enterprise didn't quite have the same popularity that the other series did, and was hobbled by behind-the-scenes developments that had little to do with the show itself. Instead, it ran for four seasons and only 98 episodes. At 42 minutes an episode, that adds up to 4116 minutes, or 68.6 hours. That means it can be viewed in less time than the previous three Star Trek series, though it makes use of longer plot threads, and fans may need to plan for longer binges to get through them.

Star Trek: Enterprise

A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains the United Earth ship Enterprise during the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation.

8 Short Treks Offers Mini Side Stories

Some stories within the Star Trek universe don't need a full forty or fifty minutes to reach a satisfying conclusion. With that in mind, Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman launched Star Trek: Short Treks . Running alongside Star Trek: Discovery , Short Treks gives viewers a chance for smaller stories to check out.

The project began back in 2018 with a season of four episodes, while a second season launched a year later with six episodes. The shows run from 8 to 18 minutes, and with only ten episodes, there are only 150 minutes so far . Fans can check that out in a single weekend. They're designed for easy single viewing sessions as well, and can even be added as riders to episodes of Discovery .

7 Star Trek: Picard Revisits Many of the Ideas From TNG

After years of fans watching stories about new characters, the new era of Star Trek finally decided to revisit an older era. In 2020, Star Trek: Picard decided to tell the first new story with Admiral Jean-Luc Picard since the Star Trek: The Next Generation films. Initially, Picard worked with a new cast that wasn't connected to the original series, but across the show, more of the classic characters were gradually added back in.

Star Trek: Picard ran for three seasons from 2020 to 2023, with ten episodes in each season for a total of thirty episodes. Episode lengths varied wildly since the series was on CBS All Access and could go from 39 minutes to 62 minutes. The full minute count, though, is 1350 minutes, or 22.5 hours. That's basically one solid weekend of marathoning or a week of leisurely watching episodes. Like Star Trek: Discovery , each season of Picard is based around a single large story line: allowing for single-season binges of about 10 hours apiece.

Star Trek: Picard

Follow-up series to Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) and Star Trek: Nemesis (2002) that centers on Jean-Luc Picard in the next chapter of his life.

6 Animated Star Trek Series Have Become an Important Part of Star Trek

'hopefully we find a new home': jack quaid reacts to star trek: lower decks ending at paramount+.

Star Trek: Lower Decks' Jack Quaid laments the show ending while deeming himself "unbelievably grateful" for the chance to star in this world.

Star Trek: The Animated Series only lasted for two seasons in the early 1970s, releasing 22 episodes that were each 24 minutes long. Franchise creator Gene Roddenberry initially disowned the series -- making it hard to find for many years -- though it has since rejoined canon and now serves as the de facto fourth and fifth years of the original Enterprise's five-year mission. The Animated Series is only 528 minutes long or just under 9 hours. The whole series can be watched in just a single day, and individual episodes can be viewed as riders alongside TOS episodes.

Star Trek: Lower Decks premiered its first season in 2020 with 10 episodes. Each episode is 25 minutes long, totaling 250 minutes, meaning that the entire first season can be watched in just over four hours. Seasons 2 through 4 of Lower Decks also have 10 episodes each, making the total runtime around 1000 minutes. A final fifth season is planned, which will likely bring the total runtime up to around 1250 minutes or so. In addition, Very Short Treks is the most recent animated Star Trek series with five episodes, each running about 10-15 minutes long. All three animated series combined would take just under 1600 minutes or just under 27 hours.

Star Trek: Lower Decks

The support crew serving on one of Starfleet's least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, have to keep up with their duties, often while the ship is being rocked by a multitude of sci-fi anomalies.

5 Currently Active Star Trek Series Continue To Expand Star Trek's Universe

At present, there are only three Star Trek series that are still running: Star Trek: Discovery , Star Trek: Prodigy , and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds . The first season of Prodigy is already out: 20 episodes amounting to a total of 480 minutes or 8 hours. A second (and presumably final) season is due in the summer of 2024, with another 20 episodes and another 480 minutes assumed in totem. That will boost the screening time for the entire series to 16 hours, or a single long day of binging.

Star Trek: Discovery has just completed its fifth and final season, leaving 65 episodes in its count with a total running time of 3,138 minutes or 52.3 hours . Episode lengths vary widely, as is typical in the streaming era, but average about 45 minutes apiece. Discovery uses season-long plot arcs the same way Picard does (it was originally conceived as an anthology series), and viewers who wish can comfortably binge a single season in a single day's viewing without trouble.

Finally, Strange New Worlds has two seasons with ten episodes in each, running a total of 1,082 minutes or a touch over 18 hours . That's short enough for a single-day binge. (A third season is on the way, which will add about another 9 hours to the total running time once complete.) Strange New Worlds emphasizes stand-alone episodes, making it very good for short viewing sessions of one or two episodes apiece.

Star Trek: Discovery

4 star trek: tos films gave the original series cast a comeback.

Ten years following the end of The Original Series , the adventures of Captain Kirk continued on the big screen. The TOS movies proved to be vital parts of the franchise, including such key moments as the death (and resurrection) of Mr. Spock and the original cast's formal good-bye at the end of the six-movie run.

Running times reflect the theatrical release of each movie, and may extend slightly, depending on whether any extended or alternate cuts are being viewed. Star Trek: The Motion Picture has a run time of 132 minutes. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan , universally considered the best film in the franchise, is 113 minutes long. The Leonard Nimoy-directed Star Trek III: The Search for Spock is 105 minutes, and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is 122 minutes. William Shatner's Star Trek V: The Final Frontier is 106 minutes, and Nicholas Meyer's The Undiscovered Country has a 110-minute running time. Overall, the original film series clocks in at a total of 688 minutes, which equals 11 hours and 28 minutes.

3 Star Trek: TNG Movies Offer a Sense of Scale to the New Era

The Next Generation did not have the same big-screen success as the original series but made four films following the end of the show. The first film, Star Trek Generations , featured both Picard and Kirk and is 118 minutes long. The best-reviewed of the films, Star Trek: First Contact , clocks in at 111 minutes, Star Trek: Insurrection is shorter at 103 minutes, and the last film, Star Trek: Nemesis , is 116 minutes long.

The four Next Generation films combined run at a total of 448 minutes, equaling 7 hours and 28 minutes. Binging all four movies can be done within the span of a single day, though their varying quality may induce some viewers to break them down into shorter viewing periods.

2 The Kelvin Timeline Movie Series Press the Reset Button on the Series

Star trek is getting a kelvinverse origin, but why are fans skeptical.

Star Wars veteran Simon Kinberg has been added to an upcoming origin movie for Star Trek and the Kelvin Timeline universe, but fans aren't pleased.

The most recent movie series, known as The Kelvin Timeline films, takes place in an alternate reality featuring the crew from The Original Series. It was created when Spock attempted to stop the Romulan sun from going supernova and exists in a parallel-but-separate timeline from the rest of the series. It's credited with keeping the franchise going during the extended gap in TV series between the end of Star Trek: Enterprise and the beginning of Star Trek: Discovery .

The Kelvin movie franchise consists of three films, with each film varying in length. 2009's Star Trek runs 127 minutes, the 2013 sequel Star Trek Into Darkness is just five minutes longer at 132, and the latest film, Star Trek Beyond , is actually the shortest at 122 minutes. The film trilogy totals 381 minutes, or 6 hours and 21 minutes. New Trekkies can finish this trilogy very quickly.

1 How Many Hours of Star Trek Are There?

All 13 Star Trek films have a combined total of 25 hours and 28 minutes, or just over a full day. Every single television series, both currently airing and retired, totals up to around 48,700 minutes, which is approximately 812 hours or 33.8 days. Every series and movie combined totals 837.5 hours, meaning it will take 34.9 days to watch them all uninterrupted.

Obviously, watching them all consecutively is impossible, but realistically, watching everything in the Star Trek franchise could take less than half a year. This doesn't even include upcoming movies like Star Trek 4 and new seasons for existing series. For those who believe this beloved universe is worth investing over 50,200 minutes, it's time to boldly go where only die-hard Trekkies have gone before.

The Star Trek universe encompasses multiple series, each offering a unique lens through which to experience the wonders and perils of space travel. Join Captain Kirk and his crew on the Original Series' voyages of discovery, encounter the utopian vision of the Federation in The Next Generation, or delve into the darker corners of galactic politics in Deep Space Nine. No matter your preference, there's a Star Trek adventure waiting to ignite your imagination.

'Horizon' star Kevin Costner reveres 'promise in America' in action-packed film: 'Make what's out there yours'

Kevin Costner has the utmost respect and admiration for the rich history associated with the American Southwest.

The Academy Award-winning actor spent decades of his life – and tens of millions of dollars, too – creating his latest theatrical masterpiece, "Horizon: An American Saga."

"There’s destiny about Horizon," Costner said in a new trailer for the action-packed western, which makes its theatrical debut later this month.


"There was a promise in America – if you’re strong enough, if you’re tough enough – you can make what’s out there yours."

Costner released the first trailer for the four-part, post-Civil War drama in February, and showcased the Wild West frontier his name has become synonymous with for decades, dating back to his first directorial stint on "Dances with Wolves."



"Looks like a promising place," Costner's character, Hayes Ellison, is told of the up-and-coming "Horizon" community, which boasts "pure and abundant water" with "the best grazing land in the world."

"It’s a place I might be able to see myself," he added.

Black and white lettering flashed throughout the adventurous trailer: "This June, between blood and bravery, between sacrifice and survival, the American saga begins."

Costner added toward the end of the clip, "People are unstoppable. I think Horizon is all about that."

In addition to starring in the feature film, Costner also directed "Horizon," based on a script he co-wrote with John Baird. Kevin wasn't the only Costner to get a credit in the movie, though. His 15-year-old son, Hayes Logan Costner, made his acting debut in his dad's flick.


"When it’s your movie you get to pick who you hang out with," Costner wrote on Instagram when the trailer first premiered in March. "Really proud of my son, Hayes, for making his acting debut in #HorizonAmericanSaga."


Costner added, "And thanks to all of you for the love you’ve shown our trailer this week. I couldn’t be more excited to share this with you."

While the premise of "Horizon" wasn't explained in the initial three-minute trailer, Costner highlighted the beauty of the American Southwest before zeroing in on the ensemble cast, which included Sienna Miller, Sam Worthington, Giovanni Ribisi, Jena Malone and Abbey Lee.


Michael Rooker, Danny Huston, Luke Wilson, Isabelle Fuhrman, Jeff Fahey, Will Patton, Tatanka Means, Owen Crow Shoe and Ella Hunt round out the star-studded roster.

Darker themes surrounding Manifest Destiny are present throughout his film, but Costner insisted there's still a responsibility in his storytelling.

"You can't tell the story unless you bump into that. You can't talk about anything without understanding who was here before us," he told Entertainment Weekly . "Our national appetite ran over culture after culture, with a high level of genocide. The people that were here for thousands of years were suddenly an inconvenience in their own land, and we should never forget that.

"The conflict was unfair. It was one-sided. If it was a sporting event, somebody would've thrown the f---ing flag and said, 'This is unacceptable,' but we did it, and we did it across the whole country. I never am going to forget what our participation has been in settling America, and I'm not so embarrassed about it that I won't talk about it." 


The film came with a hefty price tag, though, and set Costner back more than $20 million in out-of-pocket expenses, which came to light in court documents after his ex-wife, Christine Baumgartner, filed for divorce in May 2023 after 18 years of marriage.

Costner later clarified that the sum was much greater, "I know they say I've got $20 million of my own money in this movie," he told GQ magazine . "It's not true. I've got now about $38 million in the film. That’s the truth. That’s the real number."

The "Field of Dreams" actor was so impressed with the Utah landscape while filming "Horizon" that he decided to put down roots in St. George and build a state-of-the-art film studio .


St. George Mayor Michele Randall confirmed with Fox News Digital that Territory Film Studios is hoping to "break ground in the spring or summer," depending on permitting processes.

Once completed, the studios will have 70,000 square feet of sound stages, 51,000 square feet of production warehouses, and nearly 32,000 square feet of production offices.

"He has truly fallen in love with this state because it's so diverse and so beautiful, and people," Greater Zion Tourism sales manager Joyce Kelly said. "So, I knew what he was looking for, and I believe I found him the right partner. And so they're going to do a joint venture they called Territory Film Studios."

Costner's country western saga debuts in theaters on June 28. The second part of the epic will be released 49 days later on Aug. 16. Tickets are on sale now.

Kevin costner’s $100m ‘horizon’ movie tracking for worrisome $12m domestic opening.

The independently financed Western epic came on tracking alongside Paramount's 'A Quiet Place: Day One,' which looks to easily win the June 28-30 weekend with as much as $40 million, though prerelease estimates have been notably off as of late.

The box office prospects for one of the summer’s biggest swings have appeared on the horizon .

Kevin Costner ‘s big-budget Horizon: An American Saga — Chapter One hit tracking on Tuesday, with one major service putting its domestic opening at $12 million, give or take. That’s not great news for Costner and those backing the independently financed Western, considering it cost $100 million to make before marketing and is being followed quickly by Horizon: An American Saga — Chapter 2 on Aug 6.

Paramount’s prequel A Quiet Place: Day One also came on tracking Thursday, and looks to easily scare off Horizon and top the chart with a decent $40 million. One caveat for both films: Tracking has been off its game of late, creating additional angst for an already troubled box office.

The Horizon film is among the biggest gambles of the year, and is a passion project for the actor who put $38 million of his own wealth into the project to pursue his own vision of the West. A large chunk of the budget was financed through foreign sales, whereby rights are sold off territory by territory.

Horizon : Chapter 2 arrives less than two months after Chapter 1 , and Costner has two more films planned. He has started filming on Chapter 3 , but needs more funds to complete his vision.

“I don’t want to let this pile of things I have — whether it’s money, whether it’s [possessions] — be so important to me that I can’t think about what I want to do,” Costner told The Hollywood Reporter ‘s Scott Feinberg at Cannes, explaining why he put his own money into the movie. “I’m going to keep enough things that my family’s going to be good. … I’d like to have money, I’d like to have nice things, but I thought to myself, ‘That’s going to control me if I let it.’”

Lupita Nyong’o stars in the feature from Pig director Michael Sarnoski. A Quiet Place became a surprise hit in 2018 and catapulted Krasinski to A-list director status. It opened to $50 million on its way to $340.9 million globally, while the 2021 sequel earned $297.372 million, despite pandemic challenges. He produces and earned a story by credit on the screenplay.

Ryoo Seung-wan

Ryoo Seung-wan , the South Korean film director who was last month in Cannes with “I, The Executioner,” says that his next picture will be an espionage action movie.

It is pitched as “depicting North and South Korean secret agents clashing while [also] uncovering crimes occurring at the border with Vladivostok, Russia.”

Ryoo will release “I, The Executioner” at an unspecified date in the second half of this year. He has already settled the casting of “HUMINT” and has scheduled full-scale production of the new movie to begin in October.

The cast is headed by Zo In-sung, Park Jeong-min, Park Hae-joon and Nana. Zo, who delivered memorable action sequences and performances in Ryoo’s previous “Escape from Mogadishu” and “Smugglers,” will play the role of Manager Zo, from South Korea’s National Intelligence Service. Park Jeong-min, who was also in “Smugglers,” will portray Park Geon, a captain in North Korea’s State Security Department.

Park Hae-joon has had recent roles in “Emergency Declaration” and last year’s smash hit “12.12: The Day.” Nana is the stage name of Im Jin-ah, a singer, actor and model known for her work as a member of the girl group After School and its subgroups, Orange Caramel and After School Red.
