A couple of days ago ‘Nu’ Star Trek 3 director Justin Lin used twitter to announce the title of the film as Star Trek Beyond. Chris Pine will again star as Captain James T Kirk.

Along with the announcement was a picture of a Star Trek delta shield.

The idea for the film is to do something completely new for the Star Trek universe with new aliens and events we have not seen before. Justin told Deadline Hollywood last month “It’s all new and fresh”. He also said “The Klingons, Romulans, and other species are great, but it’s time to go further. It has been fun to focus on creating whole new worlds and species.”

The Vancouver production again stars Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, Karl Urban as Bones, Zoe Saldana as Uhura, John Cho and Sulu, Anton Yelchin as Chekov and Simon Pegg as Scotty.

Star Trek Beyond is currently due for release on July 8th 2016 which is a couple a months ahead of Star Trek’s 50th anniversary (September 8th).
