It's always been a family friendly franchise. 

But if Quentin Tarantino does get to helm a new Star Trek movie, as he's said he wants to do, then Captain Kirk and his crew will be boldly going where no PG USS Enterprise has gone before.

'If I do it, it’ll be R-rated,' the filmmaker, 56, told Britain's Empire magazine in an interview published Wednesday.

He also confirmed there would be plenty of profanity-laced dialogue in the movie too.

The Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill helmer revealed in late 2017 that he wanted to make a Star Trek movie and had been talking with JJ Abrams about it, adding the caveat that the project would only happen if Paramount approved a more adult version.

Paramount owns the rights to the Star Trek movie franchise and Abrams has either produced or directed the last three movies in the series.

After unveiling his latest movie Once Upon A Time In at the Film Festival last month, Tarantino says he now has the time to go back to his Star Trek idea. 

'There’s a script that exists for it now. I need to weigh in on it, but I haven’t been able to do that yet,' he explained to Empire.
