Default Tarantino Trek?

This could be interesting...

Speaking of things that should be interesting to see: We still donít know a single damn thing about this movie, other than the fact that Tarantinoís idea was so great that he was able to win over Paramount and convince them to make it R-rated. It could be totally bananas, with a star captain slaughtering sci-fi Nazis with a samurai sword, or it could be some kind of back-to-basics approach that also has a lot of nudity and cussing. We have no idea, and our assumptions are just going to get wackier until Paramount gives up some plot details.
Here's hoping we get Kirk and Spock taking on samurai Nazis, with Samuel L Jackson as Kirk and Steve Buscemi as Spock. Or at least the two of them as the bad guys.

I read somewhere that one of the things that Tarantino absoluately loves about Star Trek was the Next Generation episode "Yesterday's Enterprise" featuring the Enterprise-C and the return after Tasha Yar. I think he could rock that continuity, but it doesn't entirely fit with what's currently going on out there.

Considering the R-rating and Tarantino, something along the lines of the Mirror, Mirror parallel universe might make sense.

How about that? This makes me more excited about the next Trek film than the next Wars film.

Tarantino > Abrams any day of the week.

Now who does he cast Christoph Waltz as? I mean you can get Samuel L. Jackson to play Guinan, but Waltz doesn't really fit Klingon or Romulan, let alone Vulcan. Ferengi could work but it's a lot of makeup.

I think Patrick Stewart has said he'd reprise the role of Picardy if Tarantino is directing.

The problem with using any of the original cast (if Tarantino does a TNG reboot) runs into one rather obvious problem - fine to show age with any of them except with Data, and while Brent Spiner has reprised a bunch of different roles in the various spinoffs (mostly as Noonien and Arik Soong), pretty sure that he himself has admitted that he is now far too old to pull off being Data again.

This is true, but Tarantino directing Stewart? Would be awesome. It would suck to lose Spiner, but Stewart alone might make it worthwhile.

I'm not sure if they could pull off the Yesterday's Enterprise motif with Stewart, but if they have to keep Pine, Quinto et al with Tarantino, perhaps they could have Stewart in the past trying to figure out what happened to his time line?

Actually, that'd probably suck, nm.

Spiner was far too old to play Data back when Insurrection came out let alone now. There's a reason they tried to kill him off in Nemesis.
