With more alien characters seen on the set of Star Trek Beyond, it seems that we're finally going to see Kirk and his crew discover planets farther from Earth. Previous Star Trek films in the rebooted series have featured the early years of the Enterprise crew, which have favored keeping things close to Earth, despite those aspects being more prominent in the original TV series than the films that followed. Thankfully, director Justin Lin will be taking the crew of the USS Enterprise on its five-year mission

Star Trek Beyond will blast into theaters on July 22, 2016.
