Star Trek Beyond, the critically acclaimed latest installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returned in 2016 with director Justin Lin (The Fast and the Furious franchise) at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her intrepid crew. In Star Trek Beyond, the Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.
Following the tremendous success of his work on 2015's Jurassic Park reboot, Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino returned to the franchise to score Star Trek Beyond. Giacchino also helmed the soundtracks for 2009's Star Trek and 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness, both international best sellers. "Star Trek for me has always been about the core feeling that a team is much more functional and effective together," says Giacchino."[Beyond] feels like an adult, grown-up, more action packed version of an episode from the original show."
