Check out this cool behind the scenes look at the making of the Star Trek Video Game.
Brian Miller, Sr. Vice President of Paramount Pictures, explains that the goal was to create “the most authentic Star Trek adventure ever.” Doing so meant using the same sound design and special effects as seen in the J.J. Abrams’ films. It meant turning to composer Michael Giacchino and his orchestra for original music cues. And it meant beaming to Los Angeles, London, San Francisco and New Zealand to record dialogues with the Star Trek cast. The video shows Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and Simon Pegg actually recording their characters’ lines from the game, with inset video of their animated alter egos uttering the dialogue. Best bit, in our opinion: Urban, as Dr. McCoy, groaning “What? Why do I have to go? Jim, I’m a doctor, not a covert agent.”
