Let's say that Tarantino's movie doesn't get through, then what? They struggled to get Chris Pine back, so clearly they need a new direction. Now remember, this will have to cater to the general movie-going audience - not just 'us' fans. what would you want to do? A standalone Pike movie? More Kelvin timeline? A new Kirk and Spock? A completely new group of characters? Spin-off from an existing show? DS9/Voyager + 25 years? A continuation of the Enterprise characters? Prime, Kelvin or new timeline! Animated or live action. You can hire any directors or actors you want. High budget or low budget. The sky's the limit!
