Its been known that the third Star Trek film to come to the cinemas starring amonst others Chris Pine as Capt. James Tiberius Kirk is to be called Star Trek Beyond where hopefully the crew of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701A on its five year mission to explore new worlds and go boldly where no man has gone before. The previous two films Star Trek XI and Star Trek, Into Darkness have mainly been about setting up the crew for their journeys together. One of the previous disappointments has been the lack of galactic exploration which in the new film, they are expected to move beyond our Solar System for the climax.
It was also announced recently that Zacahary Quinto who plays Spock and Chris Pine who plays Kirk have agreed to do the fourth film. Currently, there is no Star Trek series in production. An idea for a new series called Star Trek Andromeda has been pitched by the original domain of StarTrekBeyond where Starfleet receives a signal from the Andromeda galaxy and they despatch a spaceship to investigate. This might sound a little like Stargate Atlantis where the Stargate Team Venture to the Pegasus Galaxy for exploration, different purpose but essentially the same idea, explore another galaxy.
The film is being directed by Justin Lin who is more well known for the Fast and Furious film series starring Vin Diesel, of Richard B. Riddick fame. The film is due out next year in the fiftieth year of the Star Trek franchise. The film is rumoured to have a new alien race that will be antagonists and Idris Elba is believed to be playing an alien. The first picture of the film has been released, its not much but it gives an idea.
