Star Trek Beyond

Trivia: USS Yorktown was the name of the central starship in the original pilot submitted to NBC in 1964 by Gene Roddenberry. Yorktown is the name of the space station in Star Trek Beyond.

Trivia: The registry number (NX-326) of USS Franklin is Leonard Nimoy's birthday (March 26).


Trivia: The black eye that Jim Kirk sports at the end of the film is real. During the fight scenes between Krall and Kirk, Idris Elba (Krall) accidentally hit Chris Pine, resulting in the bruised right eye. Pine insisted on using this in the final scene to add realism.

Trivia: When Scotty sits down at the computer at the end he cracks his knuckles, just like in Star Trek 4 before he uses the keyboard.

Trivia: The photo at the end that Spock looks at is from the end of Star Trek V.

Trivia: The song ("Sabotage" by the Beastie Boys) used by Kirk and his officers to disrupt an alien attack on a Federation starbase is the same song that Kirk played in Star Trek when he stole his uncle's Corvette as a child, hence him saying "Good choice."

Trivia: As he is invading Yorktown, Krall sees his Starship and uses the exact same words as Kahn in 'Wrath of Kahn': "My old friend."

Trivia: The film is dedicated to Anton Yelchin, who played Chekov. Yelchin unfortunately passed away prior to the release of the film. There are no plans to recast Chekov in any upcoming Star Trek sequels.


Trivia: The director of the movie is Justin Lin. To honor his father, Frank, the name of the NX-326 is the Franklin. But if you look at a screen shot of the nameplate, you'll notice the name of the ship is actually "Frank Lin", not "Franklin " There's a space between the "K" and the "L "


Trivia: When the Enterprise is boarded, during the following fight a Wilhelm scream can be heard as a crew member falls over the railing.

Trivia: When Scotty and Kirk are discussing the mysterious fate of Capt. Balthazar Edison, Scotty mentions a couple of theories, including the possibility that the USS Franklin was "captured by a giant green space hand." This is a direct allusion to the original Star Trek television episode "Who Mourns for Adonis?" in which the giant green hand of the Greek god Apollo actually grabs the USS Enterprise in space. Also, during the kaleidoscopic end credits of "Star Trek: Beyond" (specifically, at the moment the credits read "Paramount Pictures and Skydance Pictures present"), a giant green space hand reaches straight for the camera.
