After months of anticipation, we finally got our first look at director Justin Lin’s STAR TREK BEYOND this morning, after leaked version of the German-language trailer made its way online this weekend.

Now that we’ve got a good look at the trailer, let’s break it down!

Starting off with the familiar faces of the Enterprise crew — though these shots are pretty clearly culled together from different points in the film — the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage”, last heard in the opening moments of the 2009 Star Trek film, rocks us into the world of STAR TREK BEYOND.

Scotty taking inventory of the crew’s tech?
0372
Note Scotty in the background behind Kirk in this image.
0400
Sulu at the helm, with seatbelt on.
1359
Chekov is tucked away in the other room to the left.
0438
Note Spock’s flight jacket; the shoulder patch reads USS FRANKLIN.
0422
Uhura watching the team.
0510
We’re immediately tossed into at overwhelming attack on the Enterprise.
0593
The port nacelle is blown clean off of the Enterprise.
0544
Bye bye, warp drive.
1777
A massive swarm severs the Enterprise saucer section from the drive section below.
0547
A swarm of alien craft bombard the Enterprise, seemingly designed to penetrate a starship’s outer hull like Cullah’s Kazon shuttlecraft.
0553
Breaching the hull.
1580
One alien soldier fights a goldshirt — Kirk, pre-crash — on the Enterprise.

As the crew abandons the Enterprise, we see Kirk launch an escape pod right from the bridge, later watching the detached saucer section fall to the planet below.

1620
About to give the abandon-ship order. That’s one high collar.
0594
You can stop asking why there’s only one turbolift: the bridge has its own escape pods.
0600
Kirk leaves the ship in gold.
0646
The primary hull descends through the atmosphere.
0716
And it seems that the saucer mostly survives the descent, as Kirk approaches the wreckage with the help of a mysterious alien…
0672
…who seems to be part of the Enterprise crew as she arrives in a Starfleet escape pod.
1679
Could this alien woman be Lydia Wilson?
1480
Meanwhile Kirk and Chekov explore the interior of the downed vessel.
1527
Hard to have a rip in the hull like that while still in orbit.
1540
The wreckage also gives us our first look at these “swarm soldiers”.
1577
Oh look, it’s G’Kar, back from “Beyond” the rim! (get it?)
0678
The few escape pods that make it to the surface seem spread out in the wilderness: Chekov lands in the Squamish forest area…
0782
…while Scotty donned an oxygen mask while strapping himself into a photon torpedo casing, only to end up teetering on the edge of a cliff.
0814
This torpedo design was last seen holding some frozen dude.

McCoy and an injured Spock, however, end up at the Pitt River Quarries:

Sofia Boutella’s alien warrior gets to show off her skills:

1376
Scotty connects some cables — to perhaps blow the stardrive section?
1381
Chekov and Kirk get blasted through the air at Kent Hangar Field.

Most of the Enterprise crew, however, seem to have gone down with the ship as Sulu and Uhura are among the Starfleet refugees being herded together by the alien soldiers at the quarry.

1696
The march of the saucer survivors.

Keenser’s separated from Scotty — hope the little guy can take care of himself.
1729
Uhura and Sulu watch as the soldiers start something cruel…
1763
…and they’re powerless to stop it.

Meanwhile, Sofia Boutella shows Simon Pegg something mysterious:

1625

1667
“…only on CBS All Access?!”

Some of the soldiers make it to a Federation outpost in Dubai, as Kirk takes aim:

Lastly, as Sofia Boutella fights off one of the soldiers…

1464

Dom launches himself into the air via car crash, narrowly saving Letty from sudden death.

Wait. That’s not right.

Just kidding!

Kirk launches himself into the air via motorbike (also last seen in Trek ’09), and the pair beam away together.

1211
Maybe he bought a new motorbike to replace his one from Iowa?
1229
Space Motocross: the ultimate evolution of the wheeled arts.

While we don’t yet have a fully picture of the STAR TREK BEYOND storyline, this trailer gives us the first ideas of where the film will take us — but one interesting note here is that even though they were jettisoned from the writing team, it seems that Roberto Orci, JD Payne, and Patrick McKay are still receiving some kind of writing credit on the film.
