Star Trek Beyond is a 2016 American science fiction action film directed by Justin Lin from a screenplay by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, based on the series Star Trek created by Gene Roddenberry.

Beyond marks one of the final film appearances of Yelchin, who died in a car accident a month before its scheduled release. The film is dedicated to the memory of Yelchin as well as fellow Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy, who died during pre-production.

Three years into its five-year voyage, the USS Enterprise arrives at Starbase Yorktown to replenish dwindling supplies while the crew takes shore leave. Finding his duties as Captain growing monotonous, James Kirk applies for a promotion to Vice Admiral. Meanwhile, Commander Spock and Nyota Uhura deal with the end of their relationship; Hikaru Sulu reunites with his husband and their young daughter; and Montgomery Scott struggles to keep the ship operational.

When an escape pod drifts out of a nearby nebula and its occupant, Kalara, claims her ship is stranded, the Enterprise is dispatched on a rescue mission…. and the story takes off from there…


First off, I walked into this movie 20 minutes late and I didn’t miss a thing. The way this movie was written and executed was amazing. I felt like each scene was expertly cut and there were no fillers. Everything was where it was meant to be. This movie was just amazing. It was dark yes. Very dark and dealt with some issues that wouldn’t be funny or half as bearable if they weren’t in a move and a scifi movie at that. I loved the dialog between the main characters Pegg did a great job on that. The soundtrack was perfect. It touched the right tones. It paid respects to the past and even had fun with it. Heck it did what one movie this summer couldn’t glory in its own history… What made this move work best is the action scenes were like wow… yes the tentpoles did it well but for star trek this is star trek at its best… I highly endorse this star trek movie. Beyond has done it… It has far exceeded expectations. I think they have found the right mix of writers to directors for this rebooted franchise and I look forward to seeing more…
