To the surprise of absolutely no one paying attention, Paramount/Viacom has apparently (and discreetly) pulled the plug on the fourth chapter in their rebooted Star Trek movie franchise. This tidbit was buried in a Deadline article about the new Game of Thrones prequel spin-off, as the pilot episode is to be helmed by SJ Clarkson.
