    I love Discovery, I really, really do... but if Star Trek Beyond under-performed -- and that features Kirk and Spock -- then a DSC Film would do even worse. To put it into an understatement. This isn't happening.

    I'd love to see a DSC "TV" Movie, though, with a one-night airing in theaters like they did with What We Left Behind.

    IMO, the Star Trek movies need to take the Harve Bennett / TWOK approach. Maybe not as drastic. But have what most people think of when they think of Star Trek but do it on a budget that will be friendlier to the box office these movies will realistically make.

    The original movies never would've lasted if they were all done on TMP-level budgets. The Abrams Films were lucky in that they managed to pull off having three movies with budgets as large as they did. But the party's over now.

    Agreed.

    Frankly, Star Trek action movies miss the point. And those sequences drive the budget. And a lot of them are just unnecessary filler, especially in JJ Trek (which I despise). The TNG movies suffered from the JLP action hero stuff as well.

    The best part of any ST movie was not necessarily the big budget stuff/action sequences, but the character stuff and drama driven by drama.

    TWOK has, basically, 2 ships fighting vs each other the whole time (very Balance of Terror). There are not huge battle scenes in Undiscovered Country (or TMP). Or in V or IV.

    I love Discovery, like, it’s probably my favourite Trek series, but it won’t work as a movie. It’s season storyline’s are like a long movie anyway.

    Saying that, I don’t believe a word that site says.

    We Got This Covered is shit.

    Period.

    Believing anything they post is equivalent to believing the ramblings of conspiracy-theory nutjobs like Rush Limbaugh and Alex Jones.

    I'd watch the Disco crew in some kind of feature length Long Treks outing, but I can't see them jumping from CBS-AA to cinemas.

    I'd watch it but that story is 100% BS.

    Trek is doing fine on CBSAA. No need to go back to the big screen. Yet. :techman:

    Why not both? It'll be a hard sell but if they can get that 2009 buzz back and we get TV and movieverse Trek I'd be very happy.

    I can suspend disbelief that Quinto Spock and Peck Spock are younger versions of Nimoy Spock, but you can't put both together...

    Ditto. First thing I thought of was that if by chance WGGC was actually correct here (!) it would be for a “TV special” instead.

    I have no idea why the heck that would even be a thing. But I guess it could follow some alternate reality shenanigans or something.

    My thoughts...
    So we have:
    (1) CBS / Paramount wanting to do films but wanting them to be profitable
    (2) General concern over films with a completely new crew
    (3) Needing to appeal to those that want to see the enterprise 1710
    (4) Wide acclaim and affection for Anson Mount's Pike, Ethan's Spock, and Romijn's Number 1 - in other words, tested characters
    (5) Lack of certainty that these three would commit to full blown series on the 1701
    (6) Sets already made for the 1701
    (7) No IP distinctions anymore between film and streaming services

    So why not take Pike's 1701 Enterprise to movies???
