An Ultra Creepy New Star Trek Beyond Alien Has Been Revealed

The 50th anniversary of Star Trek will be celebrated next year with the release of Star Trek Beyond, the third film in the new timeline, which is currently filming. Very little is known about the movie right now and a set video has leaked that raises even more questions.

In the video, courtesy of ScreenCrush, you see Kirk (Chris Pine), Scotty (Simon Pegg), Chekov (Anton Yelchin) and a brand new character/alien played by Sofia Boutella, climbing on top of a spaceship. What exactly is happening here? We don’t know. What we do know is the Enterprise crew (or, at least Kirk and Chekov) are wearing a different color uniform than we’ve seen in the past. Why is that? Is it because of something that’s happened on their five year mission? Are they teaming up with this new alien? What is she? Who is she? Where are they? Where is everyone else? What is Kirk pretending to touch?

See? The video creates even more questions that we had before we saw it. Thanks a lot.


Star Trek Beyond, directed by Justin Lin, will be released July 8, 2016.
