When the Starship Enterprise finds itself under forceful attack, the crew on board fight to their best ability but it's not enough. The unstoppable wave of aliens constantly bombarding the ship means that the crew must accept defeat and flee to an unknown planet. Given the crew were deep into a five year mission, their location to the rest of the Federation is unknown and a rescue mission is going to be far from easy.

Pegg said he and George Takei hadn't fallen out over the decision to portray Sulu as a gay character in 'Star Trek Beyond'.
Star Trek script-writer Simon Pegg has defended the decision to portray the character of Hikaru Sulu as openly gay, and has insisted that he and George Takei – the actor who originally played Sulu – haven’t fallen out over the matter.
Speaking at the red carpet premiere in London of Star Trek Beyond on Tuesday (July 12th), Pegg addressed the matter which was revealed at the end of last week, where Takei, himself openly gay and a fervent LGBT rights campaigner, expressed disapproval at the decision to make Sulu, played by John Cho, an openly gay character, insisting that the film’s creators should have written in a new original character.

Takei, who originally played Sulu said it was ‘unfortunate’ and that the franchise should have created a new gay character.
Star Trek Beyond co-writer Simon Pegg has said he “respectfully disagrees” with George Takei, after the actor called the news that Hikaru Sulu would be gay in the new movie “really unfortunate”. Takei, who is openly gay and played Sulu in the original series and movies, said that the franchise should have made a new character gay, instead of “twisting” Gene Roddenberry’s creation.
John Cho as Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu.
In a statement released to The Guardian Pegg said: “I have huge love and respect for George Takei, his heart, courage and humour are an inspiration. However, with regards to his thoughts on our Sulu, I must respectfully disagree with him.”
'Star Trek Beyond', out on July 22nd, will see John Cho's character Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu portrayed as an openly gay man.
One of Star Trek’s best-known characters, Hikaru Sulu, will be depicted as gay in the forthcoming blockbuster Star Trek Beyond.
American actor John Cho, who is reprising his role as the third officer and senior helmsman aboard the Enterprise for the second time having appeared in 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness, will this time be playing Sulu as an openly gay character with a same sex partner.
Speaking to the Herald Sun, the 44 year old South Korean-born actor said that the portrayal was intended as a tribute to Takei, who is himself openly gay.

The Tuesday night sitcom is the latest casualty in this year's cull of new comedies
The latest cancellation in this fall’s bonfire of TV sitcoms has been announced. Network ABC has decided not to renew Tuesday night’s ‘Selfie’ beyond its initial run of thirteen episodes.
'Selfie', starring Karen Gillan (above), was axed by ABC on Friday
The John Cho and Karen Gillan comedy joins its fellow Tuesday night companion ‘Manhattan Love Story’ on the scrapheap, although ‘Selfie’ will at least be seen through its existing commission. ‘Manhattan Love Story’, by contrast, was pulled immediately mid-season. Ouch.

'Total Recall' star John Cho talks about the changed atmosphere in his new film 'Star Trek Into Darkness' on the red carpet at Las Vegas' CinemaCon 2013.
There's real potential in this premise for a ripping screwball comedy anchored by two likeable actors, but the filmmakers simply don't trust the material, stirring in constant elements of action mayhem that don't work at all. Pointless car chases, over-violent fight scenes, murderous henchmen, a ruthless bounty hunter and even a full-on heist: all of these things feel like irrelevant distractions for a movie that's essentially just a remake of Planes, Trains and Automobiles, with an identity-theft twist.
Bateman plays the androgynously named Sandy Patterson, a Denver accountant struggling to make ends meet when he's offered a great new job with a colleague (Cho) that will better help him support his pregnant wife (Peet) and their two precocious daughters. Then suddenly everything is jeopardised when someone steals his identity and, for some inexplicable reason, he has to go to Florida and bring the culprit back to Denver himself. The con artist turns out to be Diana (McCarthy), who's a lot feistier than Sandy expects. And as they begin the long road trip to Colorado, he discovers that she's also being chased by two mob goons (Harris and Rodriguez) and a bounty hunter (Patrick).
Plenty of films manage to mix violence and comedy effectively, but director Gordon and writer Mazin seem to flail at every turn, wildly veering from corny sentimentality to ugly brutality, punctuated by humour that only occasionally makes us laugh. And at nearly two hours, the film feels far too long even though the pace is frenetic. The various set pieces simply don't fit in with the basic premise, leaving the plot in tatters. All of these nasty villains chasing Diana are utterly meaningless, and many of the action sequences feel both inexplicable and implausible.

Sandy Bigelow Patterson is a successful businessman who lives in Denver, Colorado but his world is turned upside down when his credit card gets rejected at the gas station. He discovers that several expensive transactions have been made on his card including a water sports excursion in Florida - where he has never happened to venture. After making several enquiries and informing the police, he is told that his identity has been stolen. His initial shock and distress is quelled slightly on seeing a mugshot of the thief: an eccentrically dressed, overweight, middle-aged woman who Sandy thinks he can take on himself and force her to relinquish his identity after she has spent thousands of dollars on shopping, luxury items and partying. However, she proves too much for Sandy to handle when he tracks her down in Florida, aggressively refusing to give up her hold on his life.
'Identity Thief' is the side-splittingly funny crime comedy from the director of 'Horrible Bosses' Seth Gordon and written by Craig Mazin ('Scary Movie 3', 'The Hangover Part Two') . It is produced by Scott Stuber ('Ted', 'Love And Other Drugs'), Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman and Pamela Abdy ('Garden State') and will be released in cinemas in the UK on March 1st 2013.
Starring: Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy, Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, T.I, Genesis Rodriguez, Morris Chestnut, John Cho, Robert Patrick, Eric Stonestreet, Ben Falcone, Clark Duke, Mary-Charles Jones and Maggie Elizabeth Jones.
