The Star Trek Stage announced at Pinewood Toronto Studios

May 3, 2024

Pinewood Toronto Studios, part of the Pinewood Group, have named one of their sound stages “The Star Trek Stage” to celebrate one of the franchise’s long-running filming locations. The announcement coincides with the release of the fifth and final season of Star Trek: Discovery, produced by CBS Studios and currently streaming on Paramount+ in the US and Canada.

“The Star Trek Stage” is an 18,000 sq foot stage at Pinewood Toronto Studios and was officially renamed whilst the cast and crew were filming the final scenes of the final season. Star Trek: Discovery has been based at the Studios in downtown Toronto since January 2017. The Stage was used to house the Ready Room and International Federation HQ. The production also utilised the 45,900 sq foot Mega Stage and Stage 7, 9 and 12 as well as production facilities and workshops.

The fifth and final season of Star Trek: Discovery will find Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery uncovering a mystery that will send them on an epic adventure across the galaxy to find an ancient power whose very existence has been deliberately hidden for centuries. But there are others on the hunt as well…dangerous foes who are desperate to claim the prize for themselves and will stop at nothing to get it.

“Pinewood Toronto Studios has become a second home for our Star Trek family, and we’re grateful that they’ve named a stage in honor of the franchise,” said Alex Kurtzman, executive producer at the helm of the Star Trek series. “In addition to the amazing stage space, we’ve benefitted from working with the talented artists in front of the camera and behind the scenes and look forward to our partnership in Toronto on future series.”

Sarah Farrell, general manager of Pinewood Toronto Studios, said,

“We are so delighted to have hosted Star Trek: Discovery over 5 seasons and the recently wrapped Star Trek: Section 31 movie event and to celebrate our longstanding relationship with the franchise with our own Star Trek Stage. We look forward to welcoming many more productions to come.”
