Should they still make movies in the Kelvin Universe?

    maybe not, but since CBS all access doesn't provide the same thrills...

    star trek: discovery and the kelvin timeline films are vastly different viewing experiences. the amount these things make at the box office is immaterial to the fact that some of us like the tone and feel of the kelvin timeline films more than what CBS has given us so far. i prefer the films, but i'm not gonna say they shouldn't fill CBS all access with as much star trek programming as they can. there's still room for both.

    ^ What you've shown is nothing but meaningless CGI and blur-cam, not "thrills."

    Call me when they come close to a falling Enterprise sequence, or even orbital sky diving.

    Action movie =/= a TV show.

    It looks honestly more exciting than the umpteenth battle between gritty, dark Federation ships and even grittier, darker, completely unrecognizable Klingon ships.

    this looks great, can't wait for season 2 and everything else on CBS AA.

    but discovery hasn't reached in a full season the kind of adrenaline plus pathos the kelvin timeline films did in a single entry - much less the connection to characters you get by three movies and nearly a decade in.

    I agree with pretty much all of this.

    I'd prefer to see a new crew, and not necessarily in the Kelvin universe either.

    "What you've shown" is self explanatory, the gif you selected.

    JJ Abrams and his Bad Robot production company are being courted by Disney and Universal in a half billion dollar mega deal. That has to signal the end of the Kelvin timeline, right?

    If it's anything like the Fox/Disney deal, it will take long enough to actually come about for those 2 planned Kelvin movies to happen.

    No, it doesn't. Since Star Trek is still owned by CBS and Paramount.

    Sure they should. They don't need Pine or even Quinto to make Trek movies. They can recast, or even better, they can bring in new characters. This is nuTrek after all. There's no need to have Kirk and Spock be the primary focus.

    New characters? What absurdity is this?

    If there is a offer that's going to take years to set up, Disney (or Universal) might insist that Paramount not do any projects that would reduce Paramount's value.

    Given the under performance of Beyond and the resulting difficulty of Paramount to attract financial investors, more Abrams-universe movies could be deal breakers to any potential buyers.
    Off screen they could killed them (the characters I mean).

    I don’t think it needs to be that drastic.

    the potential deal with disney is with bad robot, not paramount. it wouldn't affect star trek.

    the only obstacle to a potential star trek 4 that we really know about is what has been (reputably) reported: pine and hemsworth deals not going through, paramount seeking to keep the budget low because of the underperformance of beyond. everything else is just rumors.

    It does in as much as the three movies so far have been Bad Robot productions. Once they move on, Trek will go in a new direction with a new team behind the camera.
