The First ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Trailer Blows a Lot of Stuff Up

I don’t know why the current franchise seems determined to blow up the Enterprise as much as possible, but that’s what the new Star Trek Beyond trailer does. I mean, seriously – there are a lot of explosions in this thing.

Just a ton.

Star Trek Beyond is the first film in the rebooted series to not be directed by J.J. Abrams or written by Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman, with Justin Lin instead in the director’s seat and a script penned by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung. The trailer makes it clear that Paramount really did push for a similar vibe as Guardians of the Galaxy, so hopefully they pulled this thing off.

In other words, we’re hoping for Star Trek IV humor, not Star Trek V humor.

Star Trek Beyond opens July 22, 2016.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
