In a recent interview with WIRED Magazine on the nature of the new “cinematic universe” trend sweeping Hollywood, Paramount Motion Picture Group president Marc Evans speculated on Star Trek branching out into the connected-film galaxy.
I often think about the areas of the ‘Star Trek’ universe that haven’t been taken advantage of.
Like, I’ll be ridiculous with you, but what would ‘Star Trek: Zero Dark Thirty’ look like? Where is the SEAL Team Six of the ‘Star Trek’ universe? That fascinates me.
That’s not to say a plan is truly in the works for this kind of Federation-spanning storytelling (like next year’s Star Wars: Rogue One ‘anthology’ film, sitting off to the side of the Skywalker-centric Star Wars adventures) though fans have often spoken of a desire for storylines set at Federation Headquarters, deep in the Klingon Empire, or other corners of the Trek universe that hasn’t received much focus in the last five decades of on-screen action.
What are your thoughts on other avenues you’d like to see Star Trek explore — maybe not a black-ops strike force, but maybe a lost tale from the Dominion War, or a MACO mission during the Earth / Romulan conflict?
