Even though JJ Abrams famously runs a tight ship to maintain secrecy, there still have been a good number of high profile set visits to his last Star Trek production. The 2009 Star Trek film saw set visits from Trek vets Walter Koenig, Nichelle Nichols, Majel Barrett Roddenberry and Jonathan Frakes. Before production started director JJ Abrams also had lunch with William Shatner and George Takei. Other Hollywood luminaries also dropped by the set, including Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg.
