Starfleet will be tested at "the craziest level" in Star Trek Beyond

Zoe Saldana Chris Pine Zachary Quinto Star Trek Beyond

After a rather disappointing first trailer and little to no promotion for months, it feels very good to be excited about STAR TREK BEYOND again and see the studio bumping up the marketing campaign. The third outing for J.J. Abrams' rebooted Star Trek universe is a little over a month away and will find the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise under attack by an unstoppable alien force which forces them to abandon ship and leaves them stranded on an alien world with no means of rescue. While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, two of the stars of STAR TREK BEYOND took the time to tease what's on the horizon for the Enterprise crew.

Halfway through their five-year mission, Zoe Saldana says that the crew is beginning to get worn out.

We’re tired, we need time off, we’ve been working non-stop, and it’s become like a machine where you kind of forget about yourself, but you need to go back home and nurture yourself and rest. 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.

One relationship which will be tested in STAR TREK BEYOND will be the relationship between Uhura and Spock. Zachary Quinto says that Spock 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.” Part of his existential crisis has Spock wondering whether he needs to be with a Vulcan rather than a human, which is something Uhura is aware of, so "they're not necessarily at the height of relationship bliss in this film."

Quinto goes on to say that despite any issues, both characters "love each other deeply and they want each other to be happy, to be fulfilled, to serve their purpose, and to realize their potential. It’s an ongoing relationship; I don’t think that it’s resolved necessarily in Star Trek Beyond. They’re learning about each other as well and figuring out the best way for each of them to move forward.

STAR TREK BEYOND warps into theaters on July 22, 2016.

can't wait

i'm really looking forward to this as i loved the first two with this cast. one thing i hope doesn't happen though like it does on so many other movies is where they talk about being "exhausted and tired from being in space for so long" is that they just cut to where they've already been in space and they don't show anything. SHOW US SOMETHING YOU DID BEFORE YOU GOT TO THIS MOMENT. the point is the marketing for this movie is them saying they go on this five year journey and encounter all

SHOW US! don't just jump into "2 years later". show us the beyond. don't just talk about it please! so many movies do this and it's becoming a cliche.

This looks great. 2nd most anticipated of the summer behind Suicide Squad. I feel invested in the characters at this point and look forward to continuing the journey with this terrific cast.

um. in the first one romulans from the future were going to drill a scary hole in the earth, or something, and in the second one Khan from the past was a domestic terrorist with magic blood, or something, that was blowing up cities or something. now we're all tired from something and its about us not them, or something? uhg

coming from the guy who has Waterworld as his avatar, you'd think you'd be more incline to have a good suspension of disbelief and enjoy movies.

Sure if the movie is honest to itself. With the Star Trek reboots they are not honest to the franchise, or even with us fans, khan anyone.. If these were generic scifi they would get more of a pass, but they ain't...

I don't get the criticism of the movie's synopsis. So you're angry that they're doing something different in this movie? But you're upset with what they did in the first two movies. I understand the criticism of the first two, but this one looks to actually turn things around and give us a Star Trek story very much in the vein of the original series. No offense, it just sounds like you have your mind made up to hate this movie regardless of how it turns out.
