Where is Star Trek Beyond going?

This article feels fairly spoilery in small specific ways, so I’ll lift out some relevant quotes:

“We liked the idea of, on the 50th anniversary, looking at Gene Roddenberry’s vision and questioning it,” Simon Pegg said. “The whole notion of the Federation and whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing. How productive is inclusivity? What is the true cost of expansion? That kind of stuff. So we went in with some big, philosophical questions to ask.”

New director Justin Lin agrees. “I feel like it’s important to try to deconstruct why Federation, Starfleet, and Star Trek is special,” he said. “And, hopefully, at the end of it, we can reaffirm why it’s been around [so] long and we can keep it going.”
