Star Trek Filming at Lawrence Livermore Lab

The Mercury News is reporting that Star Trek 2 is filming at the Lawrence Livermore Lab in California. The classified government facility (so sure Abrams is in secrets heaven), is there filming unknown scenes for an unknown amount of time. "We do have a film crew on site, known only as the HH project. We are not allowing media on the set, per their request," lab spokeswoman Lynda Seaver said in an email Tuesday. The scenes are being filmed at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) whose building is larger than three football fields and houses "the world's largest laser to produce thermonuclear ignition at temperatures and densities similar to those in the sun." Judging by the sample picture of the facility, it looks like it portions of it would be perfect for an engine room or maybe part of a warp chamber. (via Bleeding Cool)
