It’s a pity all these issues are plaguing the beloved property. Earlier this year, Star Trek 4 signed on the film side of the franchise’s first female director, S.J. Clarkson, but who knows when she’ll actually get to direct this film. Star Trek Beyond underperformed financially compared to its predecessors, but it was a critical hit, and perhaps if it was marketed better with a better release date, things might have been different. Hopefully the Enterprise, with this cast and crew, gets another chance to go boldly where no man has gone before.
