“Your father was captain of a starship for 12 minutes. He saved 800 lives, including your mother’s, and yours. I dare you to do better.”

We still have to get Star Trek Beyond in cinemas, but it sounds like there will be some more time travel shenanigans in the fourth Star Trek movie. Paramount Pictures, Skydance and Bad Robot are going ahead with the new film and Chris Hemsworth will return as George Kirk, the father of James T. Kirk.

He was in the opening 10 minutes of 2009’s Star Trek film and did great things in those final moments as Captain Pike’s (Bruce Greenwood) words above attest.

Pine’s Captain Kirk will cross paths with a man he never had a chance to meet, but whose legacy has haunted him since the day he was born: his father.

Will we see the time line altered once again?

Chris Pine and the crew will return, but no director is yet attached.

It seems that, rightly so, they will not be recasting Chekov after the passing of Anton Yelchin.

J.J. Abrams spoke about that with Postmedia Network, Abrams said the filmmakers have begun talks on dealing with his loss in the script.

“I would say there’s no replacing him. There’s no recasting. I can’t possibly imagine that, and I think Anton deserves better,” Abrams said.

In Star Trek Beyond, directed by Justin Lin, Yelchin’s character gets his most screen time so far.

Abrams added, “We knew going into this movie it would be a bit of a heartbreak just because of Leonard (Nimoy, the original Spock, who died as Star Trek beyond was in pre-production, and whose death is noted in the plot). We had no idea just how devastating events would become.”

J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay will write the screenplay. J.J. Abrams and Lindsey Weber will produce through Bad Robot Productions. David Ellison and Dana Goldberg of Skydance will executive produce.

“STAR TREK,” the first film in the rebooted franchise based on “Star Trek,” created by Gene Roddenberry, earned more than $380 million worldwide in 2009. The second installment, “STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS,” earned more than $460 million worldwide when it opened in May 2013.
