Not bad at all! Although I don't think Tarantino directing a Trek movie would be much at all like anything else he'd ever done. He's a noted Trek fan and despite certain stylistic touches I'm sure we would see, I don't think we'd really get Pulp Science Fiction.

Yeah, I don't get why people think that he'd make a Trek movie exactly like the stuff he writes for himself only with Klingons instead of Nazis or whatever. He's a smart guy, surely he would know that playing in the Trek universe comes with things you do and don't do.

The hope is that he would find a balance, combining his own signature with a healthy dose of respect for 'Trek lore (and Data! Sorry, couldn't resist.) I'd love to see him do something grittier, more noir than to what we're accustomed, but not a Reservoir Dogs in space.

And I think the noir is more or less what we would end up getting. I really wouldn't even mind an Inglorius Space-terds if it was faithful to canon, as there is a lot of the Dominion War that could probably support that kind of plot (not saying it'd be the best use of a Tarantino Trek film, just that it wouldn't be the worst).
