Justin Lin, the director of the third installment in the rebooted Star Trek franchise, tweeted a behind-the-scenes photo of the Starfleet insignia on Tuesday.
Lin, who has previously directed four Fast & Furious films, took the helm of STAR TREK BEYOND after J.J. Abrams focussed his attention on Star Wars: Episode VII and Roberto Orci was pulled from the director’s chair in late-2014.
Along with the photo, Lin tweeted “Let the next Starfleet voyage begin!”
