Update: Crashed space ship seems to be  the USS Enterprise.

Star Trek Beyond’s massive crashed space ship set at Vancouver’s Kent Hangar field appears to the USS Enterprise NCC-1701. Where has it crashed? In a scorched forest on a planet that resembles Stawamus Chief’s Grand Wall boulder area in Squamish where Star Trek Beyond filmed in late June.

That appears to be the bridge of the ship at the top of the painted set photographed today by @VanCityChris.

Here are some photos from Friday of the still-under construction set from behind.

Star Trek Beyond began building this set in stealth several months ago, using old Kimball production signs from Tomorrowland — some hand-written. It worked for a while until the magnitude of the set became apparent to  locals Bob Glassford and Christopher VanCauwenbergh. Who else could it be but Star Trek: Beyond?

Screencap.

Star Trek Beyond is in metro Vancouver this summer along with the Enterprise crew — Captain Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto), Bones (Karl Urban), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Sulu (John Cho), Chekov (Anton Yeltin) and Scotty (Simon Pegg) plus undisclosed Villain (Idris Elba), undisclosed Villain #2 (Joe Taslim) and undisclosed Female (Sofia Boutella) — to film the third installment of J.J. Abrams’s rebooted franchise with the production code Washington.  Production was delayed after director/writer Roberto Orci bowed out but got underway in late June with Justin Lin (who revived the Fast and Furious franchise) directing. Simon Pegg co-wrote the script. Most of the filming takes place in studio on brand new Enterprise sets built from scratch at Vancouver Film Studios but there are a few on-location shoots like the Stawamus Chief early on and a green-screen shoot at Kent Hangar field.
