‘Star Trek Beyond’ is an out-of-this-world experience for fans. The movie is the third installment for the reboot of the “Star Trek” franchise. Trekkies have been loving Captain Kirk, Spock and Scotty for 50 years, and what better way to celebrate this milestone than going warp speed to Comic-Con?
Simon Pegg (as Scotty): “Is that music?”
Chris Pine (as Captain Kirk): “That’s a good choice.”
Pegg (as Scotty): “Well played?”
“Star Trek Beyond” stunned at the box office this weekend. While most Trekkies beamed into theaters to see it…
Crowd of fans: “Live long and prosper!”
Fans at Comic-Con saw “Star Trek Beyond” with the cast and some real stars above them — at an outdoor event hosted by Conan O’Brien.
Zachary Quinto: “Thank you guys all for coming. Thank you, happy Comic-Con. Live long and prosper.”
It’s been 50 years since the original series aired on TV. And, in honor of half a century of going where no man has gone before, Chris Pine — Capt. Kirk himself — told Deco about the celebration in San Diego.
Chris Pine: “We are going to be at Comic-Con for the premiere, where I think there are going to be like 4,000-plus people watching on a big screen with a live orchestra, which is going to be awesome. I can’t wait for that.”
As Dr. “Bones” McCoy, Karl Urban knows it’s an out-of-this-world experience to be part of the Enterprise’s voyages.
Karl Urban: “It’s incredible. We feel really blessed to be a part of it. You know that ‘Star Trek’ fans are the best fans. ‘Star Trek’ fans hold on to an ideal. And that is, ‘Star Trek’ is about mankind aspiring to be the best that it can be. And I think in this day and age, it’s more relevant than ever.”
Maybe after 50 years it’s time for the crew to boldly go where everyone goes: right here.
Pegg: “Miami. The weather is good. The discos are amazing.”
“Star Trek Beyond” is now out in theaters.
