Perhaps Bones is a doctor… of love.
In a new clip from Star Trek Beyond, posted Friday on the film’s Facebook page, Bones (Karl Urban) busts Spock’s (Zachary Quinto) chops after the Vulcan is seemingly dumped by Uhura (Zoe Saldana). “You know Spock, if an Earth girl says ‘It’s me, not you,’ it’s definitely you.”
During a fan event celebrating the franchise’s 50-year anniversary in May, Quinto teased that Spock and Bones, who previously have mostly been connected by their own relationships with Kirk (Chris Pine), find themselves paired up in Beyond. “These are two characters who are historically pretty diametrically opposed, so I think there’s also a lot of humor that comes from that and like Karl said a lot of depth,” Quinto told the crowd. “And I really do think they finish this film with a deeper appreciation for one another than when they started it.”
Star Trek Beyond launces into theaters on July 22.
