According to J.J. Abrams, the time travel-alternate reality concept used in the previous film was a deliberate ploy to enable a clean slate for new films: "The idea, now that we are in an independent timeline, allows us to use any of the ingredients from the past, or come up with brand-new ones, to make potential stories."
Heather Langenkamp, Nancy Thompson of the original horror film A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (1984), has an unrecognizable, yet small role as an alien crew member of the Enterprise.
There are a few actors and actresses from comic book movies in this film: Zoe Saldana played Gamora (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (2014), and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2 (2017)), Karl Urban played Judge Dredd (DREDD (2012)) Benedict Cumberbatch played Dr. Stephen Strange (DOCTOR STRANGE (2016)), and Chris Pine played Steve Trevor in WONDER WOMAN (2017).
