Set Phasers to “Scan”: Barcode Scanners are Back in Star Trek Into Darkness

Posted April 26, 2013

Star Trek returns to theaters May 15 and so do the barcode scanners all over the Enterprise bridge.

Just like Kirk, Spock and Sulu, the same barcode scanners Paramount Pictures bought from BarcodesInc for Star Trek in 2009, return to their places on the USS Enterprise.

By the time the movie is set in (2259), this barcode scanner had been discontinued and replaced by the Symbol DS9808 for over 250 years!
