This story may contain spoilers for "Star Trek: Beyond. Paramount Pictures desperately wanted a film in theaters in time to celebrate Star Trek's golden anniversary. But after rejecting a script — and ultimately the director — of what had been tentatively called "Star Trek 3," the studio had to find a way to pull it together, with producer J.J. Abrams hand-picking Justin Lin to do the job. Although Lin has acknowledged his work on "Beyond" as a "rescue mission ...

Is Star Trek Online Planning An AbramsVerse Crossover?

A new uniform, claimed leaked screencaps from game, say yes

Star Trek Online may be preparing to do something not even the CBS or Paramount side of Star Trek have done before — cross universe streams. Eliot Lefebve at Massively Overpowered has pointed out a non-player character who has popped up in the online game. And while he's not key to anything going on in the story, one thing that caught Lefebve's eye is not what he says (or lacks saying), but instead what he's wearing. "The tunic is not a single piece, but rather a black undershirt with a colored overshirt," Lefebve said. ...

Quinto Highlights Abrams-To-Lin Evolution

Working with a new director took some getting used to, actor says

Fans sitting down to watch "Star Trek: Beyond" will still feel the presence of producer J.J. Abrams, but new director Justin Lin has gone out of his way to make his own mark. "I think Justin brought his own vision to the story for sure," the film's Spock, Zachary Quinto, told Entertainment Weekly's Nick Romano. "I don't think he was trying to do it like J.J., which is great. And they're very different people, they're very different directors." Abrams directed the 2009 film "Star Trek" as well as its sequel "Star Trek: Into Darkness," but stepped aside for "Beyond" so ...

'Beyond' Expands, Literally, To Three Screens

Bad Robot, Barco Escape strike deal for panoramic viewing option

It's not exactly Smell-O-Vision, but "Star Trek: Beyond" is testing out innovative new ideas, including one that will provide a view of Star Trek unlike any seen before. Bad Robot and Paramount Pictures have struck a deal with Barco Escape to present a special edition of "Beyond" across a triple-screen display. In fact, it puts "really wide" in the term wide-screen, as viewers not only see the film in front of them, but also additional material on the two side walls, creating one oversized experience. "When you're on the bridge of the Enterprise, you might see additional fo ...
