Finally, we are getting some clarification on what's coming for the next installment in the Star Trek Kelvin Timeline — well, at least what won't be coming to the universe.

Simon Pegg told Coming Soon that he is not writing the next Star Trek film that will be directed by the series’ first female director, S.J. Clarkson. “I’m not developing the next Star Trek at all,” Pegg clarified. Pegg stars as Scotty and co-wrote Star Trek: Beyond, but it looks like he will keep beaming people up for the time being.

Pegg also shone some lens flare into what Quentin Tarantino’s involvement is slated for “further down the line,” and it won’t be anything like we know and love from the director. Pegg elaborated and shared: “Everyone sort of assumes it’s gonna be like Pulp Fiction in space, but I think his devotion to Trek and his understanding of it… It won’t be ordinary, it’ll have him all over it, but it won’t be anything a Star Trek fan will have to worry about.”

If that doesn’t ease your mind, it's also worth noting The Revenant's Mark L. Smith is scripting Tarantino’s idea that sold Paramount Pictures, so there's some excellent talent working on this one behind the scenes.

Are you excited for what S.J. Clarkson will bring to the next film, or are you sticking out for Tarantino's take? Beam up your thoughts or concerns in the comments!
