Star Trek IV - Kirks 7

III was a radical departure from the norm and at the end there were all kinds of possibilities for the next film.... (e.g. Kirk & his crew of renegades in the BOP off the grid on the run making do with what they can salvage Blakes 7 style for 1 or 2 movies before things get sorted out with the UFP...)

It’s a shame we didn’t get a full on ‘renegade’ movie for IV - a more Star Warsy approach to the trekverse , building on Trek III which itself had quite abit of SW influence (cantina scene, alien microbes,opening up the ST universe with more ships/spacestations, the malfunctioning Excelsior/Falcons light speed, crew becoming rebels,Kirks Temple of Doom style fight,& the story itself mirrored Empire Strikes Back a little)

alternative Treks 4-6 if theyd gone the Blake 7 route:

Star Trek IV The Dark Frontier. After the successful resurrection of their comrade Captain Spock, the renegade crew of the fallen Enterprise (along with Savvik and Maltz) are forced into exile by a dangerous secret section of Starfleet led by a vengeful agent (Michael Ironside) who wants to retrieve the captured BOP to instigate a war with the Klingon empire, leading to a fierce manhunt across the galaxy.. (cue multiple planet locations, Kirk&Co in Mos Eisley environments, SW type aliens abound, Maltz as Worf type character who dies heroically saving the others, near escapes/shoot outs with Federation soldiers, Kirk v Ironside debate/end fistfight, BOP v Excelsior climax. Shades of what was to come in TUC and again in STID. And to a certain extent Insurrection which sort of attempted a Trek III approach in its 2nd half)

Star Trek V The Voyage Home. After defeating a sinister conspiracy plot in Starfleet, Admiral kirk and his renegade crew finally decide to face the federation. However on the way back to earth a mysterious alien probe begins to disrupt earths defences..

Star Trek VI The Undiscovered Country. Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise A are ordered to oversee a peace treaty with the Klingons...

Re: Star Trek IV - Kirks 7

Your idea for IV is vaguely like the one I wrote up a day or two after seeing SFS. Mine was called PRIVATE ENTERPRISE though, which gives you an idea of how privateer minded I was with it (I'm sure I've mentioned it in some detail here at least a couple of times in the last 5 years, it has a 'klingons trying to incite fed/rom war' angle and the use of a faux Enterprise to start things, so Kirk has to destroy another Enterprise to save the day.

Re: Star Trek IV - Kirks 7

Interesting idea. Especially like the Enterprise vs Enterprise!

Also if they done a Renegade IV it'd been cool to have the Genesis trilogy stretched out to 4 films & the bookend VI TUC (with no standalone Trek V)
