Star Trek Beyond World Premiere at SDCC
After the silence the San Diego Symphony played a medley of Star Trek theme music as a light show and fireworks exploded over head. Later Zachary Quinto acknowledged the passing of Leonard Nimoy saying "I Just want to take a moment to honor him, to acknowledge him, to celebrate him and to love him. We all carry him with us in our heart, tonight." From there the crowd got to watch Star Trek Beyond on an outdoor IMAX screen (a first for a premiere) while a 90 piece orchastra performed the film score live (also a first).
