The 13th Star Trek film, the third in the newly rebooted series. JJ Abrams, director of Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), steps aside for Fast & Furious stalwart Justin Lin.
Halfway through their five-year mission to boldy go where no-one has gone before, the crew of the USS Enterprise is forced to abandon ship and battle for their survival on an unknown planet. Hidden inside a nebula, this is where Krall (Idris Elba) has been planning an audacious attack on the Federation. Simon Pegg wrote the screenplay alongside Doug Jung after the initial effort by Roberto Orci (at one point set to direct) was rejected for being "a little bit too Star Trek-y", according to Pegg.
