New ‘Star Trek Beyond’ photos and trailer reveal a separated crew, Kirk’s struggles

Paramount released the new Star Trek Beyond trailer and fans will see the crew of the Enterprise is attacked while in the middle of their five-year mission and must fight to survive on an alien planet. Justin Lin directs the sequel from a script by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, which establishes a villainous alien played by Idris Elba.

In contrast to previous footage, the new trailer centers on Kirk, still being haunted by the ghost of his father and trying to figure out what kind of Captain he is. The crew is forced to abandon the Enterprise and is scattered about, and it looks as though the main story crux will be about the crew members attempting to find each other again.

Chris Pine has teased that the U.S.S. Enterprise gets destroyed, and the crew is forced to survive on a hostile planet, and John Cho mentioned that before this catastrophic event, the crew is two years into their five-year mission and starting to feel a little homesick.

“We’re all getting into our ruts and I think we’ve been around each other too long,” says Cho.

He also revealed that Sulu has a daughter, and that there’s another revelation regarding the baby that he can’t divulge.

The film also stars Zoe Saldana, Sofia Boutella, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, and Anton Yelchin.

Star Trek Beyond opens in theaters on July 22nd.
