Star Trek 2 Filming Sites

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

Fans interested in knowing where Star Trek 2 filming is taking place this week have their answer courtesy of Locations Hollywood.

Locations Hollywood tweeted this weekend regarding the forthcoming filming for Star Trek 2. “Star Trek filming will be on location @Budweiser Brewery, Sony Studios, Dodger Stadium, Long Beach City Hall, MCAS Tustin [Marine Corps Air Station Tustin] & the Vasquez Rocks.”

The Budweiser Brewery is probably being used for scenes in the Enterprise’s engine room.

Fans of the original series are very familiar with Vasquez Rocks, which were used in several episodes including Arena, Shore Leave, Friday’s Child and The Alternative Factor. The Vasquez Rocks were used in other Trek series and movies, including Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Enterprise, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and more recently Star Trek XI.

Trek Shooting Begins Today

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Star Trek 2 has begun filming today, and several facts about the production have emerged.

According to, the movie is being shot on Sony Studios stages in Culver City as well as at the Hollywood Paramount lot.

One place the filming will not be happening is Hawaii. Although J.J. Abrams went to Hawaii to check it out as a possible place to film a “jungle planet” scene, a location in Southern California was ultimately chosen for those scenes.

Star Trek 2 will use more sets, including sections of the USS Enterprise not seen in 2009’s Star Trek XI, than were used in the first film.
