Melbourne,July 11 (ANI): Dedicating the latest 'Star Trek' franchisee to their deceased co-star Anton Yelchin, the team said that the universe of this installment was more relevant than ever. "We're living in troubled times. There's a lot of xenophobia and the rise of the extreme right - it's lovely to have a vision of humanity out there that's united, that people aren't being persecuted for their race, their religion, their sexuality. We're out there in the spirit of unity, exploring. I think it's something that people want to see," said Karl Urban, reports News.com.au. Zachary Quinto further said that he had been more of a 'Star Wars' fan while growing up. "I'm honest about my relationship with this franchise. I was born in 1977 which is the year the first Star Wars movie came out. Like many kids, that was the world I was more exposed to. I'm grateful I've come to the Star Trek world as an adult," he told. 'Star Trek Beyond' will be hitting the cinemas on July 21. (ANI)
