Star Trek 4 Updates: Nicholas Meyer, who directed Star Trek II & VI, recently unleashed he tossed Paramount on a Star Trek film that could spin-off into a series.

Nicholas Meyer tossed Paramount Pictures on an idea for Star Trek 4. Meyer is the director of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan & Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, as well as the co-writer of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Meyer came through aboard the Star Trek franchise as someone who was not a fan originally but has crafted a few of the most powerful pieces in the series that many fans wanting to see him return.

Meyer had recently been working on developing a prequel series to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan that would have concentrated on Khan Noonien Sign &  his time outcast on Ceti Alpha V. The series did not materialize as Paramount has chosen to focus on future stories in the Star Trek timeline-like Star Trek: PicardStar Trek: Prodigy and how the most of the recent season of Star Trek: Discovery made up the characters in the timeline. However, it does seem that Meyer also tossed a new Star Trek movie to Paramount.

Star Trek 4: What Director Nicholas Meyer has to share?

In an interview with TrekMovie.com, Meyer unleashes that he, alongside Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country producer, Steven Charles Jaffe, tossed a new Star Trek movie to Paramount.

The series wasn’t a repackaged version of his Khan series but would allow them to explore new roles in the Star Trek universe with holes in the chronology & how the movie could have led to other tv series, or series leading to a film.

Paramount has been hardworking to develop Star Trek 4 since the box-office for Star Trek Beyond has disappointed investors. The original path for Star Trek 4 would have featured Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk meeting his father, the deceased George Kirk, played once again by Chris Hemsworth with S.J Clarkson in the director’s chair.

The movie was made late for budgetary reasons, and Clarkson leaves the project as numerous other pitches made it across Paramount’s table. One was from Fargo creator, Noah Hawley, that would have pointed on a new batch of roles. Quentin Tarantino tossed a concept that the studio appeared to be eager to move forward with, but Tarantino opted out of directing & the project appears to be in limbo.

Most recently, it was notified that Star Trek Discovery writer, Kalinda Vazquez, is all set to write a new Star Trek script that will be definitely an original idea.

The concept of completing the holes in the Star Trek chronology proves that the pitch could have been a prequel that could fit into either the original film series or Kelvin’s timeline before they diverged.

The Kelvin timeline was created as a new beginning point for the viewers who did not need the years of continuity of the previous Trek projects and have been the focus of the most recent three theatrical films.

The Star Trek series on the new Paramount+ all takes place in an original timeline and that has been the most recent extension of Star Trek. The status of Star Trek 4 & the Kelvin timeline seems to be still up in the air.
