More Trek Dubai Set Photos

1 min read

Several new photos from the Dubai filming of Star Trek Beyond have emerged.

Supposedly, the Dubai location will stand in for “Starbase Yorktown,” a new starbase far from Earth.


At Jumeirah Lake Towers, note the Federation symbol in front of the building.


In another photo, Chris Pine is in a conversation with what may be the commander of Starbase Yorktown.


Zoe Saldana was seen with Zachary Quinto in one of the photos. When the Vancouver shooting ended earlier this year, she had tweeted a message saying, “Packing to fly back home from Vancouver, because my Star Trek shoot had end[ed].” It was assumed that she had meant that she wouldn’t be taking part in the Dubai filming, but obviously she did.

Sofia Boutella can also be seen in one of the shots, in the background behind Karl Urban, Pine, Quinto, Saldana and Anton Yelchin.

  1. I don’t get why they had to change the uniforms. If it ain’t broke and all that.

  2. Believe it or not, from the trailer (the scene where something is being attacked) I wondered if it was supposed to be a Starbase, because the place somewhat resembled the old matte paintings from the series, and I thought an attack on Earth maybe might be too “been there, done that”.

  3. Yeah but you won’t see that in the film – It’ll be shot at a different angle. Gotta maintain that ideal body shape and all to continue the pretense that all humans come in perfect plastic molds.

  4. Really don’t like the redesigned uniforms, looks like change for the sake of change just because of a new director and costume designer.nnBefore anyone brings up Uhura having long sleeves now that can show rank insignia, the uniforms from the previous movies had long sleeves variants for women.
