Hidden References, Cameos, and Easter Eggs from ‘Star Trek Beyond’

Star Trek Beyond has been out for over a week, so now it’s time to talk about all the cool little winks, nods, and less than obvious “Easter eggs” in the film. There were many really great homages to past Trek in Beyond. For great coverage of the homages, we highly recommend friend of TrekMovie Laurie Ulster’s post on Screen Rant, she did a great job. Our version then, will focus on smaller and less obvious or more real-world (rather than in-universe) nods, cameos, etc.







Shuttle Pod: Supplemental – Our First Reactions to Star Trek Beyond

Some of the TrekMovie team had the privilege of attending the world premiere of Star Trek Beyond at San Diego Comic Con on July 20th. We were treated to a one-of-a-kind outdoor IMAX experience, complete with laser light show, fireworks, Conan O’Brien, and the San Diego Symphony performing the score to the film. Immediately after the screening, we sat down to record our first thoughts just minutes after the end credits.

SPOILER ALERT: Stay far away from newest promo “Be Ready”

In what seems to be a misstep for the marketing machine, Paramount UK has posted a new promo that we feel reveals far too much about Star Trek Beyond’s villain Krall, it is titled “Be Ready”. TrekMovie recommends everyone avoid this video, it really is that big of a deal. The video is making the rounds, and people who noticed it when it first posted, watched it, and now regret it. We will not be posting a link to it, however it is already out there on social media, so you’ve been warned!



Our Spoiler-Free Review of Star Trek Beyond
