Main Mission

This time, we’re talking about [Star Trek Beyond]

Star Trek Beyond

Screenplay by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung

Music by Michael Giacchino

Directed by Justin Lin

Premiered on July 22, 2016

Easter Egg Alert

When Kirk and crew first enter Yorktown’s reception area,, Clinton spotted a kiosk that included a closeup of Deep Space Nine and the phrase “Adventure begins here.” He hasn’t seen it on Easter Egg lists, although he’s sure someone must have spotted it before. Because fellow Trek fans catch these details.

Warp Speed Round Table

Last time we asked…

In your mind, are the characters John Frederick Paxton (“Star Trek: Enterprise”) and Admiral Alexander Marcus (“Star Trek Into Darkness”) related? They were both played by actor Peter Weller and seemed to have similar “misgivings” about non-humans.

This time around…

If the next Star Trek movie (currently scheduled to arrive on June 9, 2023) is a continuation of the Kelvin timeline movies, there is a gigantic void to fill, left by the untimely passing of Anton Yelchin. To help us through this, what TOS era character would you like to see return in the film?

End of Transmission

Time to refill the dilithium chamber and try to warp on out of here.
