Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast
128: To the Undiscovered Country and BEYOND!

Temporal Trailer Park Two.

As we continue our ramping-up to Star Trek BEYOND in July, we are going to take a look at the second-half of Star Trek movie trailers from Star Trek VI in 1991 through to the recently released BEYOND Trailer 2. Join us for a transmat beam down memory lane as we try to recall the feelings and emotions that we experienced when we first saw these trailers either in the theaters, on TV or most recently online. We also have a very special segment during the show where Mr. AND Mrs. AtoZ share their memories of a very special Paramount Studios screening of the new BEYOND trailer.

If crafted properly, movie trailers can tease, excite, and have the power to stir our imaginations into a frenzy of anticipation for an incredible motion picture experience! Trailers are a time honored tradition amongst film fans and in this case Star Trek fans. They have the power to inspire, to create wonder, and to fuel the imagination for the eventual theatrical release of the next installment in the Star Trek film franchise. As we begin counting the days to Star Trek BEYOND, let’s celebrate what this movie will mean to all of us as we continue to enjoy Star Trek’s 50th Anniversary. LLAP!
