The Star Trek Beyond cast celebrated the film’s opening this weekend (and the positive wave of reviews its riding) at San Diego Comic-Con today, and we were there to talk all things Trek.

We caught up with stars Chris Pine (Kirk) and Zoe Saldana (Uhura), as well as screenwriter Doug Jung, on the red carpet. Pine talked about how his character has changed throughout the trilogy, while Saldana cracked wise about the amount of stunt work she had to tackle as a new mother. Jung brought some insight into the film’s development process, touching on how they sought to honor The Original Series by finally setting the crew off on a five-year mission to explore.

The film is looking to be a hit with critics, and it’ll be interesting to see where the box-office numbers fall this weekend, thanks to the rising tide of buzz.

Star Trek Beyond opens Friday.
