New Star Trek Beyond Set Video Reveals New Weapons, Sulu's Baby
Star Trek Beyond is not being shy about attempting to get back to the franchise's roots, and now a new set video shows off the "retro" costumes, as well as new weapons and a significant new piece of information about Sulu's character:



In this set video from ET, Karl Urban previewed the new costumes, which he calls a "nod to Star Treks past" in honor of the franchise's 50th anniversary this year, while Chris Pine previews some intriguing new phasers.

Meanwhile John Cho, who plays Sulu, revealed that there's going to be another member of the Star Trek family, as Sulu has a daughter. The members of the crew are two years into their mission, so they're all homesick, and Sulu is no exception.

Opening quote
"Sulu has a heartache for his little baby," Cho said. "[He] had brought his picture to his console, which technically, we've been saying, it's unprofessional. It's in the way of the buttons."

But that picture won't actually be in the way of the buttons, of course, because that adorable picture is not actually of Sulu's daughter. There's more to the story than that, according to Cho:

Opening quote
"There's another revelation you'll find out in regards to this baby, but you'll have to wait to see the movie."
Closing quote

My first crazy guess is that it's Sofia Boutella's character, but that's completely just based on knowing nothing about the character. As Cho says, we'll have to wait for Star Trek Beyond to hit theaters on July 22.
