Star Trek Beyond

January 23, 2020

In the final Kelvin film, Star Trek Beyond, the USS Enterprise is destroyed and the crew stranded on an alien planet. They meet an alien named Krall who intends to destroy the Federation.

Star Trek Beyond is not an oft-discussed film, but it's clearly the best of the three Kelvin films. Directed by Justin Lin from a script written by Simon Pegg (Scotty), Beyond works as both a Star Trek film and an action film.

In this podcast, Wes and Clay discuss the dynamics of Balthazar Edison, the benefit to a stationary camera, and the Kelvin Universes biggest failure!
