Star Trek Beyond movie quotes tell yet another story about the adventures in space of Captain Kirk and the Starship Enterprise. The science fiction action film was written by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung based on the Star Trek characters originally created by Gene Roddenberry. Directed by Justin Lin, Star Trek Beyond opened in theaters on July 22, 2016.
In Star Trek Beyond, Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) leads his crew, including Commander Spock (Zachary Quinto), Doctor Leonard McCoy (Karl Urban), Lieutenant Nyota Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Lieutenant Commander Montgomery Scott (Simon Pegg), Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu (John Cho) and Ensign Pavel Chekov (Anton Yelchin) on a five-year journey through space.
About halfway thought their trip, the Enterprise is destroyed by a powerful alien force. This leaves the crew scattered on a strange alien planet and Captain Kirk determined to find his team in an unfamiliar place. To make matters worse, the crew is threatened by enemy Krall (Idris Elba), who is determined to take down the Federation, and for good cause.
What It Means to Be You
Captain James T. Kirk: My dad joined Starfleet because he believed in it. I joined on a dare.
Doctor Leonard McCoy: You joined to see if you could live up to him. You spent all this time trying to be your day and now you're wondering what it means to be you.
As he and Dr. McCoy discuss, Captain Kirk joined Starfleet to be like his father. But now that he's the one making his career, Kirk isn't sure what he wants to accomplish for his own legacy. Considering the battle that he will soon face, it sounds like his make-it-or-break-it point is coming quick.
My Last Report as the Captain of the Starship Enterprise
Captain James T. Kirk: We were overwhelmed by something, something we'd never seen before. I know this isn't the last of my crew but this is my last report as the captain of the Starship Enterprise.
Captain Kirk explains that this battle is one that is unprecedented in the history of Starfleet. He knows this is his ultimate challenge and wants it to be his last.
You Can Fly This Thing, Right?
Captain James T. Kirk: Hey Sulu, you can fly this thing, right?
Sulu: You kidding me, sir?
Captain Kirk seems a little concerned about Sulu's abilities to fly their ship. And while Kirk might be onto something, Sulu feels completely confident in his skills.
We Need to Find Our Crew
Captain James T. Kirk: The Enterprise was destroyed. We need to find our crew.
Jaylah: I will help you find your friends.
With the Enterprise destroyed, Captain Kirk is tasked with finding his lost crew. While an alien isn't the most likely ally in that, Jaylah is willing to help him do that.
