Given that Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home was the most profitable Star Trek film up until J.J. Abrams’ reboot in 2009, it’s easy to imagine just how much more money it would have made with the star power of ‘80s Murphy attached to the project. It’s also important to note that Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home was actually more profitable than The Golden Child, so it could have potentially been the right career move for the comedian at the time. Either way, his career obviously didn’t suffer from his decision to exit the film, as Murphy had a string of box office hits throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s.

Not only was Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home a financial success, it proved to be a favorite amongst certain fans for its time travel elements and more light-hearted approach in comparison with its predecessor, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. With this in mind, some fans might consider Murphy’s exit from the film a blessing in disguise, as it eventually led to such a highly regarded entry in the series. Even so, it’s easy to imagine that Murphy would have fit in nicely with Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and its more light and comedic tone.
