• Tarantino's Star Trek got greenlit and Trekkies are shook. 1 / 14

    Quentin Tarantino Cameo Vertical
  • That is not a completely unfounded fear. Tarantino likes to do a lot of things Star Trek doesn't. Namely swear. 3 / 14

    Samuel L. Jackson In Tarantino's Django Unchained
  • But he's also an incredible director and has experience adapting his style to suit an existing property. See: Jackie Brown. 4 / 14

  • Oh wait... is that an... 87% on Rotten Tomatoes? Yes. Because Jackie Brown is a very good adaptation of Elmore Leonard's novel Rum Punch. 5 / 14

  • Roger Ebert raved about it and named it one of his top 5 films of 1997. For what it's worth, Tarantino can adapt, which are the muscles he'd to flex to direct Star Trek. 6 / 14

  • And frankly, Star Trek's been around long enough that we're honestly a little excited to see what kind of wacky movie Tarantino would make with it. 7 / 14

  • But on one condition: 8 / 14

  • There can only be one. That's it. Tarantino only gets one. 9 / 14

    Lieutenant Worf on Star Trek The Next Generation
  • We're not interested in a Tarantino Star Trek saga. 10 / 14

  • That would be ridiculous. 11 / 14

  • And it would totally dilute the franchise's values. 12 / 14

  • But once could be pretty special. Or at least ridiculous fun in a way Star Trek rarely allows itself to be. 13 / 14
