As mentioned previously, there was a special Star Trek Beyond "fan" event that took place on Friday. The fan portion was put in quotes because some fans who had tickets unfortunately were not let into the event, and were treated pretty poorly…
From the fans outside, who couldn't get in with tickets: "Par security just came out to tell us to leave"— TrekCore (@TrekCore) May 21, 2016
At the end of the day, Star Trek Beyond director Justin Lin did offer something to those fans who could not get in:
