Star Trek Beyond - Rockstar Music Tracks

Jeffrey Scott's - Battle of the Bands regales Rockstar Aficionados all the time - so having found a Science Fiction angle, I wanted to join in the "Battle of the Bands" fun.

Star Trek Beyond's teaser trailer is exploring new territory. (Alas forget Jerry Goldsmith and James Horner) Question: Is the Beastie Boy's "Sabotage" track punchy enough to shake up the entire galactic Federation of Lifeforms?

We need Star Trek as a NO1 box office smash hit but Beyond has to win over the hearts of fans first. The truth is emotional reactions are running quite high. You may remember the first time Kirk played "Sabotage" in 2009 as he drove his stepdads red corvette over a cliff.

Its time to choose 1 out of 3 songs you'd like to hear in Star Trek Beyond.

1. Sabotage by Beastie Boys

2. It's My Life by Bon Jovi

3. Womanizer by Britney Spears

Which of these 3 music tracks  is your favorite  for Star Trek Beyond?

Let us know your "song of choice" in the comments below.

Galaxy Quest - Meme Bloghop

Christine Rains, C. Lee McKenzie and Tara Tyler are hosting a Winter Bloghop which I spotted over at the Its all good fun. The idea is to shake off the seasons blues by posting a fun MEME on whatever cosmically takes your fancy. All you have to do is select a favorite image (You've probably guessed that I love Science Fiction.) Now warp over to, upload - type in your words/quotes and publish!

I found an amusing snap from Galaxy Quest with "Sir Alexander Dane" (Alan Rickman) chatting with co-star Gwen deMarco (Sigourney Weaver) over the phone. (He's alone in his apartment, STILL wearing his latex Alien Scalp on his head.) Gwen is upset because their supreme commander "Captain Jason Nesmith" freaked out bigstyle with a fan.

Laugh Long and Prosper.

Star Trek Beyond Will Mix Things Up in Its Plot, Jumping Forward in Time! is the latest scoop to hit the trekkie sphere over at Master Herald.‎ Star Trek Beyond Won't Be A Traditional Kirk-Spock Adventure according to cinemablend. Almost everyone knows poor William Shatner is not in the movie. To keep everything on track, heres Director Justin Lin's "INSIDER VIEW" on ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Criticisms:

“We Are Trying to Be Bold and Take Risks” was Posted by Peter Sciretta over at Slashfilm recently. Heres a few quotes from J. Linn who explains why trek's trailer was mind boggling.... to be kind.

 Justin Lin Quote 1

 Well, its a minute and a half, you know… And again, there were other versions that were much more traditional and I can see where maybe the hardcore fans could probably see that as, “Oh.” But with trailers you’re putting a two-hour movie into a minute and a half, and the one thing I wanted to make sure is that it hopefully represents that we are trying to be bold and take risks, whether we are successful or not, I don’t know. That was something I was excited to do and with collaborators like Simon [Pegg] and Doug [Jung], passion for the franchise will be there regardless. So however it’s presented, yeah it’s a minute and a half, and my challenge to everyone making the trailer is about saying “let’s not go off course, I’m not afraid to share — share it, I feel like we have the goods in a two-hour run and you really do get to know the characters and hopefully the journey is great. I love it and the cast did an amazing job and the crew… and the inside baseball version of the creation of this Trek was pretty condensed in how you usually make a movie of this size. And I wanted us to be bold, I wanted us to take chances and hopefully in a minute and a half we are able to convey that.


 Justin Lin Quote 2 

Yeah, and I don’t know if that’s the case here. When I saw the teaser, I’m like, aw shit. You really have to put the motorcycle in there? So I get it, I get it, I get it.

 Justin Lin Quote 3 (Music)

It’s in the DNA of this canon. It was in the ’09 Trek, and we went through different iterations of the teaser and I wanted to make sure whatever here is using all the elements from the film. It’s been a part of this Kirk’s journey and so I felt it was very organic, and it will ultimately be in the finished film.


 Justin Lin Quote 4 (Lin VS Pegg)

The one thing that was when I came on this [film project], I didn’t even realize how emotional my level of engagement with Trek was until the first day of preproduction when I walked into the hallway of the Enterprise and it hit me. It’s part of me but my level of engagement with Trek was really from 8 to 18, when I would watch Trek at 11 PM on channel 13 with my dad. He worked all day, closed shop at 9 PM and dinner at 10 and watched Trek. And so a lot of that is trying to create something that embraces the essence of Trek for me. Simon has a very different level of engagement, and Doug also has a very different… so it’s awesome to get in there and have those collaborators and have that discourse about how we were going to craft this movie. ‘Cause Simon, he knows EVERYTHING about Trek and it’s great to have those guys with me the whole way.

Art is the wonderful mirror of humanity..... When Chris Pine says this, Simon Pegg is seated looking at him. I have no idea how Pegg kept such a straight face but he did - right to the very end of the video - Hilarious.

Justin Lin Quote 5 (Star Trek Beyond Title)

 He kind of tracked me down and we’re talking and I didn’t know what to expect. I thought maybe he was offering to go shoot a script that existed and he said, no, it’s yours. Go and be bold. And just take it. Be bold and make it what you think you would do to Star Trek. And the more we talked about it, the more we kept saying, well let’s keep pushing. Let’s keep pushing. And that’s when Simon kind of said, well it should be Star Trek Beyond. And it was his idea. And it was kind of came from all our conversations. And we looked at each other and like oh, that sounds like the title of this film. 

And the interview goes on and on. All this awesomeness over one trailer, aren't we spoilt? For more Star Trek Beyond analysis, warp over on over to Slashfilm Page 2 and Slashfilm Page 3
