We’ve seen Kirk and Spock duke it out for screen time over the years, both getting their own scenes where they sacrifice all for their crew. Isn’t it time Bones gets the spotlight? Will the next film be the one to put the ship’s doctor to the test?
We have been fans of all the Star Trek television series and movies from day one. In this 50th year of Star Trek, the franchise catches up to the benchmark only recently passed by Doctor Who and James Bond. Even the bottom of the Star Trek catalog is better than the best of many other franchises. That bottom is in the eye of the beholder. For many its Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. For others it is Deep Space Nine or Enterprise. Whatever your view, it’s sure to spark a conversation (and controversy) among Star Trek fans.
Next year a new streaming weekly series will no doubt clear the way for more chatter among fans like we saw when Star Trek: The Motion Picture was first released, when Star Trek: The Next Generation first aired, and the pilot of each series thereafter. And of course the J.J. Abrams reboot films spurred its own schism between the fan base. But for good or bad we’ll keep coming back and find something awesome about every new image of Star Trek on the big or small screen.
Paramount has released several TV spots in the past few days that provide even more glimpses at an Enterprise under attack, our familiar crew, and new aliens and villains. Check them out, after the break:
Look for Star Trek Beyond in theaters July 22, 2016.
