On a voyage with ‘Star Trek Beyond’
​​​​​NTU alumni catch the latest instalment to the popular Star Trek franchise, ‘Star Trek Beyond’, at an exclusive movie screening

After years of anticipation, fans of the Star Trek movie franchise were finally treated to the latest instalment, ‘Star Trek Beyond’, at an exclusive movie screening. More than 80 alumni with their friends and family members had a blast enjoying the blockbuster hit on 24 July at GV VivoCity. These movie screenings are organised regularly by the NTU Alumni Affairs Office exclusively for NTU alumni.

Created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, ‘Star Trek Beyond’ returns with director Justin Lin (‘The Fast and the Furious’ franchise) at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her heroic crew. In this exciting science fiction film, the Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space and finds themselves trapped on an alien planet, where they encounter a mysterious new foe who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.

The fans gleefully lapped up the film’s engaging storyline as they watched the Enterprise crew embark on the daunting mission. The thrills and spills certainly filled the atmosphere with much excitement. 

The exclusive screening provided alumni an opportunity to enjoy their favourite movie with family members and fellow alumni.
