With so much talk around Star Wars every day, it's easy to forget that Star Trek has a movie coming out this July. The explosive new clip promoting this summer's epic adventure, however, might do the trick.

This latest trailer for "Star Trek Beyond" seems to be taking fans on a much more pleasing path than the previous one, showing us a conflicted Kirk, scary-looking baddies -- and a USS Enterprise under siege.

"My dad joined Starfleet because he believed in it," says Kirk (Chris Pine), confiding to Bones in a scene from the third film portraying the "alternate timeline" cast. "I joined on a dare."

The movie hints at a major theme surrounding James T. Kirk's quest to find an identity of his own, and is filled with action and space exploits. Oh, and of course, there's also a lens flare to remind you of JJ Abrams' involvement (he serves as producer this time around, with Justin Lin in the director's chair). As the Enterprise crew flees and their signature ship is torn to pieces, you may fear for the safety of Sulu, Uhura and the rest -- but by the end of the trailer, it looks like they'll be fighting back by meeting force with more force.

"Fear of death is illogical," says Spock.

Bones replies: "Fear of death is what keeps us alive."

"Star Trek Beyond" hits theaters July 22.
