Star Trek Beyond – The Next Installment
With the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, Justin Lin has directed the newest installment of the Star Trek movie magic – Star Trek Beyond.
This Star Trek movie is the third in the reboot series, featuring Chris Pine as Captain James T. Kirk, and Zachary Quinto as Spock. The new cast started in 2009 with Star Trek, followed by Star Trek Into Darkness in 2013. Star Trek Beyond is the 13th release in the Star Trek film series and features the 9th director, Justin Lin.
In Star Trek Beyond, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise are halfway through a five-year mission when they are attacked by an army of unknown aliens. This attack forces the crew to abandon ship and take refuge on a strange planet. While stranded with no apparent means of escape or rescue, the crew finds themselves in conflict with a new and ruthless enemy, Krall.
This reboot series has widely been known as a more prevalent Star Trek and has purposefully done this to captivate many different audiences outside of Star Trek fandom and Trekkies. This latest series – and Star Trek Beyond in particular – has focused on making entertaining cinema for all moviegoers. Writer Simon Pegg said the storyline was written with the idea that no one has extensive – if any – knowledge of Star Trek.
Star Trek Beyond comes out in theaters July 22, 2016. For a great Star Trek collectible item, be sure to check out our Perth Mint Star Trek coins! To read more about the 1 oz Silver Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise bullion coin, read our blog here!
