Entertainment Tonight paid a visit to the set of the third instalment in the rebooted Star Trek franchise, Star Trek Beyond. Their behind-the-scenes video is fairly brief, but they do manage to get a few interesting tidbits from several of the returning cast members.
First up, Chris Pine (Captain Kirk) shows off the Enterprise’s new weapons bay and the larger model phasers that are on display there. Next, Karl Urban (Dr. McCoy) reveals that when this film kicks off, they’re already 2 years into their 5 year mission and the ship is showing signs of “wear and year.” Plus, the crew are sporting slightly modified, retro uniforms to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek.
The most intriguing details come from Jon Cho (Mr. Sulu) however, as he states that Sulu has a daughter and is really starting to miss her being cooped up on the Enterprise with his crew-mates. The actor then teases “another revelation” relating to the kid, but says we’ll have to wait to see the movie before finding out what that is.
Any ideas? Let us know in the comments section below.
