New Star Trek Beyond trailer sets up the end of a story

All things must end

Paramount Pictures released the newest trailer for the third film in the Star Trek franchise, Star Trek: Beyond, and with it gave us the first look at the beginning of the end.

In the trailer, which also spotlight's Rihanna's new song recorded specifically for the film "Sledgehammer," Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) says that while he believe his crew and the U.S.S. Enterprise will continue its adventures, setting the course from planet to planet, this would be his last mission. After decades of trying to live up to his father's legacy, it's time for him to rediscover himself and his values.

The new trailer also focuses on some of the devastation that will inevitably afflict the Enterprise crew and the enemy forces they'll have to combat along the way. Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto and Bones all make an appearance in the trailer.

Star Trek: Beyond, directed by Justin Lin, will hit theaters July 22.
