While Star Trek may be alive and well on the small screen with Star Trek: Discovery and a few other series in the works, including one featuring Jean-Luc Picard, but its time on the big screen has been better. Not too long ago, a Star Trek 4 seemed like an inevitability, and Paramount even went so far as to lock down Jessica Jones’ S.J. Clarkson to helm the project. However, talks fell through with the actors, and last we heard, the film was shelved.
But is that where we can expect it to sit forever? Are we really living in a world where the Kelvin timeline will never be revisited? Things don’t really seem to be looking good for fans of those Abrams flicks, that’s for sure. But there is one actor who is more optimistic than the rest of us. Speaking with ET Online, John Cho, who plays Hikaru Sulu in those films expressed his thoughts on the matter:
“I certainly am down. To be honest, it’s not happening right now as far as I know, but I just think it will happen. Somebody, at some point, we’ll all get on the same page and do it. That’s my belief, maybe I’m being optimistic.”

Well, he’s not exactly crazy with his optimism. As much as we can rely on Hollywood to let projects fall through the cracks, we can also rely on them to fall back on established properties. Star Trek is one such established property, even if it never managed to make that beloved Star Wars dough. I can see them revisiting the idea in five to ten years. Sure, the story would be different than the Jim Kirk and Pa reunion story, but it could see this excellent cast return.
What do you think of the possibility of a Star Trek 4? Do you think there’s any chance in hell that we get that Chris Hemsworth-focused story? Let us know down below!
