Trekkers Only! : Tarantino's Star Trek movie idea is based on one of the best episodes

Tarantino's Star Trek movie idea is based on one of the best episodes

Deadline’s report reveals Tarantino’s movie “is based on an episode of the classic ‘Star Trek’ series that takes place largely earthbound in a 1930s gangster setting.”

The episode in question is most likely “A Piece of the Action,” the 17th episode of the second season of “Star Trek: The Original Series.” The installment aired January 12, 1968 and found the Enterprise crew visiting a planet with an Earth-like 1920s gangster culture. That Tarantino’s “Star Trek” idea was a gangster movie isn’t too surprising, as the filmmaker revealed in an interview with Deadline in July 2019 that his plan for “Trek” was to bring in some “Pulp Fiction” elements.

This was one of the funniest episodes of the original series and would have been a great fit with Tarantino's style.

Mediocre at best.

Original Star Trek and Tarantino. What's not to love?

Do you remember “The City on the Edge of Forever.”? I think it might have been the best episode ever. That would make a great movie too, if it was cast right.

Yes I do, and that was one of the best episodes ever. It's rated an absurdly high 9.3 on IMDb. And it just might make a good film.

My own Top 2 Favorite Episodes of The Original Series are "BALANCE OF TERROR" and "THE DOOMSDAY MACHINE".

Re: Tarantino's Star Trek movie idea is based on one of the best episodes…

Mine are "BALANCE OF TERROR" and "MIRROR, MIRROR". Although the best dialogue and the best line in ALL of TREK (TOS and otherwise) is "THE CORBOMITE MANUEVER"!
