While the new Trek movies that comprise the ‘Reboot’ have been nothing short of epic, they are lacking a very important aspect of the overall Star Trek experience. At the very center of the entire franchise has always been the idea of the original Enterprise and their five year mission to seek out strange new worlds and civilizations. It is that central heart that the new movies have been missing.
But thanks to the changeover in directors, fans will soon get a taste of what that five year mission might entail in the newest Trek timeline. Once again, all of our favorite Starfleet officers will take their places on the most iconic starship in history. Once again, they will strike out on a mission to explore, but this time they will not only be taking the original generation of fans along with them for the ride, but they’ll be taking a whole new group of younger adventurers and dreamers too. If the original series and their exploratory adventures had plenty of real world effects, perhaps it is time we see the impact Star Trek can have on society today.
The details of the plot aren’t entirely in the open yet, but the news is making things a bit clearer as the movie is transformed from script to reality. Learn more in this article on the next five year mission of the USS Enterprise.
