  • Video and Photos of Second Unit Shooting for Star Trek Beyond in Dubai

    06 Oct 2015

    It’s official: filming has begun in Dubai for Star Trek Beyond, and there are some (rather unrevealing) photos of a helicopter shoot floating around the web. Don’t get too excited; this is reportedly a second unit shoot, meaning the actors wouldn’t have been present, and there are no interesting sets, costumes, or anything really to […]

  • Star Trek Beyond Begins Next Phase of Filming With Press Conference in Dubai

  • Idris Elba Meanderingly Describes His Character In Star Trek Beyond

    29 Sep 2015

    Idris Elba, who has been cast as the villain of Star Trek Beyond, gave an interview with MTV recently where he described his character as, among other things, “groundbreaking” for the Star Trek franchise. I think ’Star Trek’ has prided themselves as being quite classic when it comes to villains, like ’he’s a guy who […]

  • Salmond: Not Kirk

    The former First Minister of Scotland ran into a problem when he tried to travel using the names James T. Kirk.

    Alex Salmond was trying to travel out of Heathrow when he was initially denied entry to his flight because the fake name didn’t match his real name on his passport.

    Salmond uses a fake name for safety reasons and using Kirk’s name came naturally because Salmond is a fan of Star Trek.

    The former First Minister usually travels out of either Gatwick or London City airports, where staff is more familiar with his travel arrangements.

    In spite of the initial problem, Salmond was able to make his flight. “It was all sorted out,” he said. “I just wanted BA [British Airways] to ‘Beam me up, Scotty!'”

    Residents in Dubai were awakened by the sound of a helicopter Friday morning.

    The helicopter was in the air to shoot scenes for Star Trek Beyond.

    The Sheikh Zayed Road, an eight lane highway that leads to “some of the biggest skyscrapers in town” was partially closed to facilitate the filming.

    Resident Megha Merani, who lives in one of the skyscrapers, tweeted about the filming. “OK, this is getting very exciting,” she said. “They’re coming closer to my balcony!”

    A set is beginning to emerge, which looks like part of a starship. To see larger photos, enlarge the thumbnails.

    Chakotay’s away team finds a carving similar to one used by his own tribe, triggering recollections of his youth.

    Plot Summary: On an away mission to look for polyferranide, Chakotay discovers a spiral symbol carved in a rock. He explains to Janeway that it resembles the emblem of the Sky Spirits from an ancient myth he learned from his father, which claimed that his people were the descendants of powerful extraterrestrials. Chakotay has never believed the myth, but Janeway encourages him to consider the possibility that the story contains seeds of truth which might help them negotiate with whoever left the symbol on the planet. Voyager follows a warp trail to another M-class world that reminds Chakotay of Central America and contains polyferranide deposits beneath the surface, but when Torres tries to beam down an away team, storms arise in the atmosphere. Chakotay takes her, Tuvok, and Neelix down by shuttlecraft, but Neelix is attacked by a large bird, and another storm traps Chakotay on the surface as Tuvok and Torres return to the ship. Meanwhile, the Doctor experiments with experiencing illness to become more sympathetic to the struggles of flesh-and-blood patients. Alone on the planet, Chakotay explores a structure that reminds him of the ones he found with his father on a trip to Central America, where Chakotay first told his father that he didn’t belong among their superstitious tribe and wanted to enter Starfleet. He and his father encountered an isolated tribe with markings that didn’t appear human, who had the same tattoos on their forehead as Chakotay’s father bore – the one that Chakotay now wears to honor him. Entering a cave, Chakotay meets a group of humanoids who understand the few words he knows in what his father told him was the language of the Sky Spirits. They tell him that they settled many worlds but abandoned Earth when it appeared that all their descendants had been killed by violent humans. Chakotay explains that his own people left Earth for a planet where they could practice their own beliefs, though he himself rejected those beliefs until his father was killed. When Janeway tries to land Voyager to rescue Chakotay, the aliens refuse to allow the crew to take minerals from their planet but release the ship from the storms that threaten it.

    Analysis: I really wanted to love this episode the first time I saw it, and I was determined to love it on a rewatch – so much to appreciate, after all, finally getting Chakotay’s backstory, exploring a human character who has a spiritual side after so many years of Star Trek mocking people with religious beliefs who don’t happen to be an Emissary to wormhole aliens, plus a gratuitous butt shot to top it off. But I can’t work up enthusiasm for anything besides the performances and some attractive visuals. There’s no getting around the laziness of the writing staff, who seem to believe that putting a label like “Native American” on a character is sufficient to count for diversity without doing any substantive research about Native American beliefs and customs. It’s not like Star Trek hasn’t done the same with other ethnic groups – “Scottish” and “Russian” are accents with stereotypes on the original series, while all African cultures have apparently been wiped out in favor of one big bland united continent – and it’s not like more recent genre entertainment hasn’t been just as lazy in rewriting Native American history with sci-fi gimmicks (see the big embarrassment known as Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull). Yet it’s still quite disappointing that a series which ran for seven years never gives any more substance to Chakotay than a backstory that echoes half the male characters in the franchise who reject their own traditions in favor of Starfleet, and a “Native American” history that’s the most irritating form of New Age American Indian nonsense, in which elements from different tribes are thrown together in a haphazard mash with the explanation that it’s because these special people and their accomplishments were brought about by powerful beings from outer space. I’m not sure whether to label this outright racism, since similar suggestions have been made about the tribes that built Stonehenge and other megalithic circles in ancient Britain, but it’s condescending and imperialistic.

    It’s possible (though it would be nice to hear it explained) that after centuries of oppression and disregard by the settlers who took over the region and nearly wiped out the original residents, either actively through assault and forced integration or passively through disease and shortages created by poor care of the land, the remaining Native Americans chose to intermarry and merge their distinct traditions rather than witness their cultures disappearing one by one. Given the large cultural melting pots we’ve seen elsewhere in Star Trek’s future, it makes sense that Chakotay might have been raised with both Lakota beliefs about the medicine wheel and Zapotec traditions concerning animal guides. But we don’t get even that much specificity, just the implication that all Native Americans talk to animals and believe in the same afterlife. And, like Chakotay, our initial reaction to this is meant to be scorn. We’re told that Chakotay had no use for his own people’s traditions or values until his father’s death – not, it seems, because his father was overbearing or cruel to him like Spock’s, Riker’s, Paris’s, et al, but because he didn’t enjoy being dragged on field trips through rainforests or being told how much he owed to his ancestors. He had to feel such guilt over his father’s murder at the hands of the Cardassians that he not only rejected the Federation for allowing it to happen, but his own initial skepticism. And if he remains doubtful, as he tells Janeway, then why has he encouraged her to contact her animal guide and taught Torres about his medicine wheel? The writers are trying to have it both ways – to make Chakotay representative of some vague surviving Native American culture without having to explore the value of any given set of Native American beliefs. Kolopak calls him contrary, yet Chakotay comes off as reactive rather than active, relieved to have an excuse to follow Starfleet regulations again, preferring the indulgences of 24th century living to the traditions of the Rubber Tree People (the Olmecs? or is it just a similar name?).

    How odd that in an episode focused on Chakotay, there’s more character development for the Doctor in the comic side story in which he programs himself to become ill after Kes accuses him of insensitivity to his patients. Yet again, Kes comes across as the most emotionally mature person on the ship despite her youth and inexperience. Perhaps Chakotay should try talking to her instead of to animals, because although we learn many things Chakotay does not believe, we still aren’t sure of the things he does. This “peaceful man from a peaceful people” fought in the Maquis to avenge his father. We’ve been told of his Maquis fellows that Paris was a private mercenary, Tuvok was a Starfleet spy, Seska was a Cardassian spy, and Torres was a Federation malcontent, so it’s rather disturbing to learn that even the leader of the group had no deep commitment to the Maquis cause after the Federation bartered away the home in which he had no interest in living. It suggests that most affiliation with the Maquis is based not on principle but personal interest – vengeance or bitterness or frustration – which in turn suggests that Starfleet and the Federation are in the right to consider them enemies. We’ve seen more ideologically committed Bajorans in the Maquis, like Ro and Gerron, than we’ve seen DMZ settlers. Maybe deep down Chakotay has concluded that the Federation was right – that going to war over a comparatively small number of colonists wasn’t worth risking millions of lives, which would explain why it has been so easy for him to return to Starfleet – but it’s hard not to miss the more conflicted, more aggressive character from “Parallax.” Chakotay’s finest moments of conflict in “Tattoo” are also the scenes of greatest intimacy, in which he tells Janeway about his family conflicts and struggle with the beliefs that he previously presented to her as powerful and personally defining. As usual, they stand a little too close and touch a little too often for work colleagues, and her encouragement more than his belief becomes the reason he pursues the link between his father’s spirituality and the strange symbol on the alien planet. Yet again, it appears that Janeway’s cause is Chakotay’s cause.

    A mental evaluation has been ordered for Star Trek: Voyager‘s Jennifer Lien.

    Last month, the former actress was arrested indecent exposure. It was not her first run in with the law this year; back in April she allegedly rammed a police cruiser.

    Lien is charged in the two cases with evading arrest, resisting arrest, reckless endangerment, aggravated assault, and indecent exposure.

    The mental evaluation will “determine her competency,” according to Roane County Public Defender Kim Nelson, whose office is defending Lien.

    The evaluation will take place at Moccasin Bend Mental Health Institute in Chattanooga, which bills itself as a place that provides “quality psychiatric services to individuals with a severe and persistent mental illness.”

  • Star Trek Beyond Dubai Press Conference

    Filming for Star Trek Beyond has moved to Dubai, and a press conference was held today at the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai.

    The conference included Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Idris Elba, Justin Lin, Jeffrey Chernov, and Douglas Jung.

    One of the topics included why Dubai was chosen for filming, especially external filming. “We came searching for the future and we found it,” said Chernov. “We’d drive around Dubai and look at things and we’d have to figure out how we can use those visual guides to tell our story. I’d see a building and say ‘we have to figure out how to put that in our movie.'”

    Dubai looks like “whatever tomorrow would be,” said Pine. “It’s futureland.”

    Pegg spoke about what Star Trek means to us today. “The film series offered a “utopian ideal where we can all just live together and there is no judgment and there is no prejudice...Star Trek, above all else, has something to teach us, which is that, imagine that, imagine if we could all get along.”

    Quinto spoke about returning to Star Trek after the death of Leonard Nimoy. “Coming back to the role for the first time without him, I guess I feel the significance of the responsibility in a different way,” he said. “Leonard has such profound and positive impact on millions of people around the world because of his portrayal of this role and I think what he and Gene Roddenberry created with this character is so unique, and there’s a depth to it and there’s something that I think a lot of people connect to and find some sort of emotional resonance within and so I do take that seriously. I’ve always wanted to do good work and I think all of us up here agree on that…for me there is another undercurrent in this film which is to truly honor my dear friend and carry on the legacy that he worked so hard to create.” News

  • Son'a Pistol from Star Trek: Insurrection

    14 Mar 2015

  • Macias Vest from Star Trek: The Next Generation

    26 Dec 2014

    A screen used vest worn by members of the Maquis. The Maquis were a rebellious organization of Federation-born colonists and discontented Starfleet officers who organized against the Cardassian occupation of their homes in the Demilitarized Zone after their colonies were ceded to the Cardassian Union by Federation Cardassian Treaties in the late 2360s and early 2370s. Starfleet Command considered members of the Maquis to be traitors, while Cardassia considered the Maquis to be terrorists.

    The vest was worn by actor John Franklyn Robbins in his role as Macias throughout the episode "Preemptive strike" of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1994. Macias was a citizen of Juhraya, a Federation colony that came under Cardassian rule after a treaty was signed with the Federation. He was the leader of a Maquis cell that opposed the treaty. Macias become a friend with Ro Laren who joins the Maquis in "Preemptive Strike".

    The vest was also used on the set of Voyager by stunt actor Steve Blalock. In the episode "Worst Case Scenario" he plays a Maquis rebel, too. The production team added a velcro patch to the vest for a Starfleet combadge.

  • Klingon Baldric from Star Trek (2009)

    17 Nov 2014

    The Klingon baldric was a sash that traditionally went over the left or right shoulder of noble Klingons. It contained the symbol of a Klingon House or it was used to hold knives and disruptors. In 2009 the look of the famous alien warriors was redesigned by costume designer Michael Kaplan for J.J. Abrams' reboot of Star Trek.

    The Klingons wear helmets and grey thick coats with a large black baldric. Kaplan described them as his favorite costumes for the film, explaining he modeled the helmets on a horseshoe crab, while the coats were intended to resemble the texture of an elephant or rhinoceros. The baldric is made of leather. The outer layer is calf skin. Two snaps and velcro are mounted inside to fasten the baldric.

    Unfortunately the scenes with the new Klingons set on Rura Penthe were cut in Star Trek. Director J.J. Abrams tried to avoid a disruption of narrative flow. But the Klingons returned in the sequel Star Trek Into Darkness (2013). Michael Kaplan revised the costumes again. Although the Klingons got new outfits with a different kind of baldric you can see a Klingon with a black baldric which was designed for its predecessor.

  • 1984 Mike Minor Interview

    14 Jul 2015

    Mike Minor made some significant artistic and production design contributions to the original series third season, the aborted Phase 2 series, ST: The Motion Picture and ST II: The Wrath of Khan. In this extensive interview from issue #14 of Enterprise Incidents, published February of 1984, we find out the extent of his involvement. (See his Star Trek wiki page here.) As you may recall, I posted another article on Mike earlier from Starlog, but this one goes much more in-depth. He worked on many other genre productions, not the least of which was Star Wars. It's tragic that he passed away so young in 1987 and we never got to see what he might have done since then.
