You won't believe which classic character is turning up in Star Trek Beyond


Specific plot details about Star Trek Beyond are still thin on the ground, although we do know that Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg (who also co-writes) and Zoe Saldana are all set to be joined by man-of-the-moment Idris Elba as the baddie.

However, an intriguing bit of breaking news confirms that the daughter of Hikaru Sulu (John Cho), Demora, is set to join the Enterprise crew for their latest adventure. Although this might not mean much to casual moviegoers, as far as Trekkies are concerned this is big business. Check out the video courtesy of Entertainment Tonight (via Trekcore) below.

Demora is a fan-favourite having turned up in TV series Star Trek: Generations as a Starfleet ensign aboard Enterprise B. Given the rebooted movies operate within their own timeline, it's not clear what her history will be but fingers crossed we'll find out more soon. It also promises to add intriguing emotional dimensions to the now-paternal Sulu, given his role was fairly sidelined in both Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness.

Star Trek Beyond is released on 22nd July.
