A screengrab from "Please Stand By" that sees Dakota Fanning play a huge "Star Trek" fan.

Determined to deliver her 500 page Star Trek script for a writing competition, Wendy leaves her caregiver and goes on a cross country journey filled with setbacks and (one would hope) life affirming moments. "Will she live long and prosper?"

While official Star Trek movies may be on hiatus, pending development with the rumored Quentin Tarantino and JJ Abrams project, a new upcoming release from Magnolia Pictures looks to turn the spotlight onto the franchise's fan.

In the film, Fanning plays a young woman with autism who is also a huge Star Trek fan.

The film is from The Favour director Ben Lewin and written by Grimm's Michael Golamco.

Please Stand By hits theaters and On Demand January 26, 2018.
