The new preview, which was initially unveiled as part of a special fan event before warping its way online, feels like a pretty darn good apology. This isn’t the most mind-blowing trailer you’ll see this year, but it accomplishes its one job quite effectively – it makes Star Trek Beyond look like a proper Star Trek movie and something worth seeing.
