One large caliber break, coming UP!
I'd agree with what many of you say: it would be terrific if this first film does well and greenlights a second film, perhaps another after it. But I too think the 'series' of films would be little resemblance to the SW trilogy (either one).
Ideally, I think it would be fun to have "continuing voyages" of films... in time order, for sure, but not linked directly like sequels can be. A true series of films. Probably wouldn't get more than three out of this ensemble cast since a successful launch would put the stars in high demand, and a three-film stint could run close to ten years long in elapsed time.
Impossible to predict where TREK might go after that, at least for me.
