The Beastie Boys Work a Lot Better for the Original Star Trek TV Series Than Beyond

I’m not sure how, exactly, this only just happened, but someone finally got around to taking the audio from that Star Trek Beyond trailer with The Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” and setting it to footage from the original TV series. It’s delightful.



Rob Bricken was the Editor of io9 from 2016-18, the creator of the poorly named but fan-favorite news site Topless Robot, and now writes nerd stuff for many places, because it's all he's good at.

I still don’t get the whole problem with that scene in Beyond. It was perfect Trek - one half extremely silly, one half brilliant puzzle-solving. It was all I love about Trek as a mostly casual Trek fans.

Beyond did something few Trek movies did - it made me want to watch more Star Trek.
