What is the new Star Trek movie about?

The new Star Trek movie is an origin story that takes place decades before the 2009 Star Trek film that rebooted the franchise. 

Deadline also adds the final chapter in that main Abrams series, Star Trek 4, remains in active development.

Movies on backburner

The last Star Trek movie was released in 2016 with Star Trek Beyond; however, it didn’t do all that well at the box office compared to its predecessor, Into Darkness.

A fourth movie was in development set to star Chris Hemsworth, who plays Kirk’s father, but the movie never went anywhere. Quentin Tarantino also wanted to do an R-rated Star Trek, but that too, never saw the light of day.
