The Enterprise is under attack in latest clip from Star Trek Beyond

We’re just a week away from the release of Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond, and a new clip shows a massive attack on the Enterprise. Put simply: It seems Kirk and the gang are in a bit of trouble.

The clip finds Kirk (Chris Pine) and the crew facing a new foe, as the franchise looks to capture the magic of The Original Series with a sequel that is generating a mountain of positive buzz. The scene shows the Enterprise approaching a new planet as Chekov (the late Anton Yelchin) alerts Kirk to an unknown spacecraft that’s about to cause some major problems.

Lin (Fast and Furious) seems to be bringing a fresh energy to the series as the crew heads into uncharted territory and encounters Evil Idris Elba. The early screenings for Beyond have gone so well, the studio opted to push up the review embargo — something that only happens when they know they have a good movie in the bag.

Star Trek Beyond opens July 22.
