Star Trek Beyond ★★★½

Best use of "Sabotage" since the original "Sabotage" video. This feels like a series hitting a stride, comfortable with its characters and past and projected future. No gimmicks here. Just a Trek story told with competency and consistent character. While BEYOND maintains the "action pace" of the prior films, Lin carves out time for each of his characters. Strength in numbers. Unity in the face of hate and fear.
