With Star Trek Beyond getting ready to light up theaters around the world this weekend, following rave reviews and stand out performances from the cast. Paramount Pictures isn't wasting anytime and have just officially announced Star Trek 4 (No Official Title) is coming and a familiar and perhaps forgotten face from the opening scene of J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot. The God of Thunder himself Chris Hemsworth will be returning as Captain George Kirk, father of Chris Pine's Captain James T. Kirk. Probably due to the franchises use of time travel.


Check out the official plot synopsis for Star Trek 4 below:

“In the next installment of the epic space adventure, Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk will cross paths with a man he never had a chance to meet, but whose legacy has haunted him since the day he was born: his father.
