SET: STAR TREK BEYOND Set Under Construction at Vancouver’s Kent Hangar Field


What is it?

Star Trek Beyond began building its gigantic Kent Hangar Field 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 Bob Glassford and Christopher VanCauwenbergh. Who else could it be but Star Trek: Beyond?



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 some on-location shoots.

Like this gigantic set with porcupine-quill logs under construction now covered in dirt and bark. Stacked shipping containers will hide the set from the road.
