The studio announced the film's release date Tuesday, report variety.com. The news comes a day after it was announced that the "Fast & Furious" director Justin Lin was taking over "Star Trek 3" when Roberto Orci stepped out of the director's chair.

The first two instalments of the "Star Trek" franchise -- "Star Trek" (2009) and "Star Trek Into Darkness" (2013) -- were directed by J.J. Abrams, who exited the project earlier this year after his commitment to direct Disney’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. The TV series "Star Trek" debuted Sep 8, 1966, on NBC and was aired for three seasons.
