SFX Wishlist: What do you want from Star Trek 4?

TODO alt text

With an entire galaxy still to explore, it seems unlikely we've had our last adventure in the Kelvin timeline of the Star Trek universe. Star Trek Beyond was a solid – if not spectacular – outing for Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the rest, so what would you like to see when they next engage warp drive? We want your thoughts for the next SFX Wishlist feature.

Should the Enterprise crew see out the rest of their five-year mission? Would you like to revisit old characters/situations from classic Trek canon – a la Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness – or should the next movie prioritise seeking out new life and new civilisations, and really going where no one has gone before? Are there any alien species ripe for a reboot? 

In terms of personnel, would you like to see a shake-up on the bridge? The tragic death of Anton Yelchin means there'll sadly be no Chekov (executive producer JJ Abrams has said the role won't be recast), but the end of Beyond hinted that Sofia Boutella's Jaylah was heading for Starfleet Academy – would you like to see her on board the Enterprise full time? Or more screentime for Star Trek Into Darkness's Alice Eve as Carol Marcus? What do you think about the news that Chris Hemsworth will be back as Captain Kirk's late father, George? What sort of timey-wimey shenanigans should bring him back? And is this an excuse to finally bring William Shatner into the rebooted universe. 

You can email your ideas us at sfx@futurenet.com (please use the subject line Wishlist: Star Trek 4). Feel free to go into detail – but no 20-page essays, please! Alternatively you can post a comment below, tweet us at @SFXmagazine (using the hashtag #SFXwishlist), or join us on Facebook. We’ll harvest the best comments for our Wishlist feature in SFX issue 280, on sale 12 October. 

Make it so!
