Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto talk ‘Star Trek Beyond’

A new Star Trek film arrives this summer, just in time to honor the 50th anniversary of the original series. The cast is back for Star Trek Beyond and star Zoe Saldana spoke with EW, offering her thoughts on the state of the crew collectively and how the adversity they find themselves in poses a tremendous challenge.

Life has a different journey for us, and instead of us having to go out and aid another population, another planet that has been the target of violence, we are the target, so this is very different. We are tested at the craziest level and not just our lives are tested, but our characters and our relationships are tested.”

This time around, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise are in the midst of their five year journey through space, where they encounter a new adversary in Krall (Idris Elba). This villain could potentially be the most menacing threat Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and his friends have faced yet, seeing that Krall vehemently opposes the ideals of the Federation and everything it stands for.

Spock will be going through the most in this third film. In his interview, Zachary Quinto addressed Spock’s inner turmoil as he’s torn between his “Starfleet obligations and Vulcan roots”

“[He is] in this existential moment in his life and at a crossroads between his obligation to his Starfleet and his Vulcan roots. His planet was destroyed and they’re rebuilding, and he’s trying to figure out where his energy is best directed to help other people. He comes into a new awareness of his own mortality for a number of reasons, and there’s a lot of stuff that he’s trying to figure out in this film. By the end, I think he realizes the best path for himself moving forward.”

Star Trek Beyond arrives in theaters July 22, 2016.
