With that, fans will soon get to witness how the story will unfold with the new milestone in the "Star Trek" franchise.

In 1968, the year before "Star Trek" was cancelled, George had discussed with Gene about the possibility of featuring a gay character in the show, but the showrunner declined.

Called "Unity", the 30-second promo is packed with action and quips, with the focus on Chris Pine's Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto's Spock.

In case you were wondering whether or not I can wait for Star Trek Beyond to come out, I CAN'T WAIT FOR STAR TREK BEYOND TO COME OUT.

He explained: "He was praising me for my advocacy for the LGBT movement and for my pride in "Star Trek".

John Cho, who plays Hikaru Sulu, told Australian newspaper Herald Sun that the character will be shown in a same-sex relationship in "Star Trek Beyond", opening July 22.

Nonetheless, a milestone only meant to be a small tribute and a small part of Star Trek Beyond has turned into something much bigger and more debatable.

George then didn't hear anything until a few months ago when he received an email from Simon, who also plays Scotty in the rebooted film series. Directed by Justin Lin, the third film in the franchise series is produced by J.J. Abrams, Roberto Orci, Lindsey Weber and Lin; and executive produced by Jeffrey Chernov, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Tommy Harper.

There are just a few short weeks until the debut of the latest J.J. Abrams Star Trek flick, Star Trek Beyond, and the cast has been dropping some serious hints at what they were doing on set while filming and no, it wasn't speaking Klingon.

Chris Pine is dapper in a suit while arriving at the premiere of his latest film Star Trek Beyond held on Thursday (July 7) in Sydney, Australia. Yet Takei told the Hollywood Reporter he pushed for Pegg and Lin to make a completely original gay character, instead of altering a character he and creator Gene Roddenberry always believed to be straight.
