June 30th, 2015 by Marc Comments


After all the speculation, it looks like Star Trek 3 finally has an official title…

Fast & Furious director Justin Lin has Tweeted the first official image (below) from the movie – a Star Fleet uniform patch and, while it looks pretty cool and everything, it was the message that really made the biggest news:

Let the next Starfleet voyage begin! #StarTrekBeyond

So, it looks like it really will be the beginning of the five year mission, new life and new civilisations. And called Star Trek: Beyond


Star Trek Beyond stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and John Cho and Idris Elba. It’s directed by Justin Lin and is set to enter Earth’s atmosphere on July 8th, 2016.

Da da da, da da da da daaaaaaaaaaaaa….

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
