Star Trek 3 director Justin Lin has today confirmed the title of the new film, and that title is Star Trek Beyond. I like it!
Crew members have been very vocal that Lin is a true Trekkie, so even though many are worried how the next film will fare without JJ Abrams directing, it appears to be in good hands.
The title, revealed in the below Tweet, also reveals part of Star Fleets uniform, and the title itself suggests that we will finally be heading off on a big adventure in space.

The TV series debuted on Sept. 8, 1966.
