If by chance you thought the Star Trek series, after “Star Trek Into Darkness,” was going to switch gears and focus less on explosive action sequences and more on the spirit of discovery, don’t watch this first teaser trailer for Star Trek Beyond. Paramount Pictures has doubled down on the action instead, going so far as to putting the director for several installments of the “Fast and Furious” series, Justin Lin, at the helm. That doesn’t mean there isn’t a worthwhile story within (or compelling character studies), but I wouldn’t hold my breath. So for now, take a look at the slick editing and bizarre song choice while thinking, “Is it time for Star Trek to be reboot?”
