Star Trek Beyond: new alien species

Director Justin Lin shows off two new alien species in a picture from the set of Star Trek Beyond…

With the 5th April marking the day that humans and Vulcans first met – or First Contact Day, as it’s known in Trek lore – director Justin Lin has taken to show off two of Star Trek Beyond‘s new aliens.

Lin doesn’t tell us the names of the alien species, but he does set us a little competition. The first person to correctly guess who the actors are behind the alien makeup gets a Star Trek Beyond T-shirt and accompanying poster. “I know this will be a tough one since the casting of these two actors hasn’t been announced yet,” Lin says.

Star Trek Beyond is due for release in the UK and the USA on Friday 22nd July 2016. There’s no word yet on the running time,
