LOS ANGELES, June 12 — If you’ve been wondering about what awaits in Star Trek Beyond, stars Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto just might have some details for you.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Saldana teased about her character in the new film saying that the crew was attacked in the beginning of the film as they were worn out.

“We’re tired, we need time off, we’ve been working non-stop, and it’s become like a machine where you kind of forget about yourself, but you need to go back home and nurture yourself and rest,” she explained to the site.

“Life has a different journey for us, and instead of us having to go out and aid another population, another planet that has been the target of violence, we are the target, so this is very different. We are tested at the craziest level and not just our lives are tested, but our characters and our relationships are tested.”

Quinto on the other hand revealed that his character Spock is caught up in a struggle to discover himself. “His planet was destroyed and they’re rebuilding, and he’s trying to figure out where his energy is best directed to help other people.

“He comes into a new awareness of his own mortality for a number of reasons, and there’s a lot of stuff that he’s trying to figure out in this film. By the end, I think he realises the best path for himself moving forward.”

Star Trek Beyond follows the crew of the USS Enterprise as they crash-land and become separated on an unknown planet with no ship and no means of reaching out for rescue. In trying to find a means of escape, the stranded crew also find themselves fighting a formidable foe with a major hate for the Federation.

Star Trek Beyond is set for release on July 22.
