Hopefully it gets a more Star Trek-looking engine room this time, too.   I was not terribly fond of the USS Budweiser-prise (hehe) but I kind of liked the use of the Lawrence Livermore Labs key ignition facility in STID; at least that looked more technical than giant vats of beer.  When I first saw ST09's engine room, I half-expected to see Laverne and Shirley going by on a forklift....:laugh:

I dont think we will see the Enterprise-A engineering or even the bridge on the comic book, because those sets has not yet have being designed for STAR TREK 4 (if there is a STAR TREK 4 with the JJ  cast)

Well, if J.J. Abrams directs again, expect to see more brewery-style interiors. I liked how there was no evidence of any breweries in Beyond.

Well, he didn’t direct Beyond, so its unlikely (given his producing chores on Star Wars AND Star Trek) that he’d find the time to do so if/when another ST sequel happens. 

In fairness, while I wasn’t fond of Budweiser-prise engineering?  I did appreciate the use of the real-world Lawrence Livermore key ignition lab as a warp core in STID (a movie I wasn’t too fond of, otherwise).  LL labs actually LOOKS like a 23rd century locale; it certainly worked well for Star Trek...

That was one of the few saving graces of STID - if there were any. Although we still saw a lot of the brewery, unfortunately.

The brewery engine room scenes really popped me out of the movie a tiny bit because I had a friend of mine (a former coworker) who actually worked at that very brewery.  :laugh:

There was also a brief scene in STID that was shot at the Getty Center art museum in Los Angeles, but they 'dressed it up' enough to not be too glaringly obvious.

Well - most of the scenes in the Ocampa underground complex were filmed at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

That’s true.  I always thought it was odd that the ‘underground’ complex was just drenched in sunlight like that...:P


I’ve been to the LACC a few times myself.  Now when I see it, it just reeks of Ocampa. :laugh:

^ Okay, I don’t even know what led to that one. :giggle:

Well - to be fair there may have been a means underground to "simulate" daylight you know. I mean, if the Caretaker could whisk ships away from other parts of the galaxy, I mean, perhaps there is some use for artificial sunlight.

True, but the characters seemed to immediately realize they were in an underground complex... couldn’t they have pretended to be fooled for, oh, maybe a second? :laugh:

That L.A sunshine is just SO bright...:cool:

Well - there may be some way to do that in an underground complex and still have it be obvious. There were some major light sources underground.
