The one and only piece of advertising we’ve seen so far for Star Trek Beyond is the 1 minute 30 second trailer that debuted back in December.

Now, YouTuber Auralnauts gives us his take on how Captain Kirk and his crew would react to seeing the trailer.

Webcomic creator, cat-lover, and drawer of funny things, Matthew Inman (a.k.a. ‘The Oatmeal’), took to the interwebs today to tell the story of a young Gene Roddenberry in glorious webcomic form.
Long time TrekMovie readers will remember our friend Paul “Spockboy” Sibbald for his hilarious TOS gag edits of episodes. He let us know there was a new creation up on his YouTube channel for our viewing pleasure. He says he was inspired by: the gentlemen who took pictures of the original Enterprise model and Photoshopped them into scenes from the various Star Trek films. That story, plus the recent very sad death of Leonard Nimoy, inspired me to create this video. It is the sequence from Star Trek III when the crew steals the Enterprise. In this video however it is the TOS crew (and ships) and is done as a 1927 silent film. It is certainly unique and I think you’ll like it. It was shot completely with models and required a great deal of rotoscoping to make it work. There’s some major TOS love in this one, Matt Decker is sent after Kirk in this version of events, and there’s a fun homage to the first Sci-Fi silent film – Méliès’ A Trip to the Moon. Click through for the full video.
