Paramount Pictures has released 2 new clips, a featurette, and over five-minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from Star Trek Beyond.

In the first clip, when an alien ship aggressively approaches the Enterprise, Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) becomes alarmed and raises the shields. In the following clip, after the Enterprise has been destroyed and its crew scattered on an alien world, Scotty (Simon Pegg) makes a new friend, Jaylah (Sofia Boutella).

And she is the focus of the new featurette. ""She comes from a very strong race of aliens -- physcially extremely strong," Boutella says of Jaylah. "She's quite defensive very much on her own, and she's been protecting herself."

Star Trek Beyond, the highly anticipated next installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin ("The Fast and the Furious" franchise) at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her intrepid crew.

From Paramount Pictures and Skydance, Star Trek Beyond is a Bad Robot, Sneaky Shark, Perfect Storm Entertainment production.

Directed by Justin Lin, the third film in the franchise series is produced by J.J. Abrams, Roberto Orci, Lindsey Weber, and Justin Lin; and executive produced by Jeffrey Chernov, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Tommy Harper. Based upon Star Trek created by Gene Roddenberry, the screenplay is written by Simon Pegg & Doug Jung.

Star Trek Beyond opens in theaters and IMAX beginning July 22.
