So it’s confirmed – “Star Trek Beyond”!
Also, in less than 140 characters, director Lin managed to share the franchise’s familiar Starfleet uniform, as seen in his Twitter post above. Lin then ended the tweet with a hashtag, #LLAP (Live long and prosper), just like how the late Leonard Nimoy always does.
