The nice people at Fathead sent me one of their Star Trek wall graphics to play with, so I’ve decided to take it on a mission of exploration around my city. Our first strange new world is the Lincolnshire Showground’s EPIC Centre; many thanks to them for letting us drop in!
General Electric have released a new advert in their Brilliant Machines series. This latest spot sees Mr Sulu and Science Officer 0718 saving the Enterprise from plunging into a black hole (again) using (a little oddly) General Electric’s “deep sea fuel technology” (that is, I believe, some sort of apparatus they have developed for the exploitation of those ever more elusive hydrocarbons down on planet Earth).
I can’t find any sort of behind the scenes information on this yet, other than a list of production staff, I wonder if they filmed this back when Into Darkness was shooting, or pulled a few of the set pieces, and costumes, out of storage to make it.
This isn’t the first film to be worked into a GE advert, previous examples include the equally enjoyable yet bizarre entries based on The Matrix and Back to the Future.
