Star Trek Into Darkness is set to hit warp speed tonight as it hits theaters and as we've been doing the past couple of weeks since the summer movie season has started, we've compiled a bunch of Star Trek stuff from around the Internet to help you pass the time while you wait in line.

If you purchase tickets on Fandango, you'll receive a complimentary iTunes download of J.J. Abrams' first Star Trek movie (while supplies last). OK, now on to the Trekkie tidbits.

 

50 Things You Didn't Know About Star Trek

A few weeks ago, we shared Sam Gilbey's impressive 20 Things You Didn't Know About Iron Man inforgraphic and he's back with 50 Things You Didn't Know About Star Trek.

Among some of the tidbits included in the massive graphic are:

- There was a fire during Star Trek III, which William Shatner helped fight in full Kirk costume. He was worried it would delay his return to T.J. Hooker.

- George Takei's Sulu finally got his first name, Hikaru, said onscreen during Star Trek IV. The film also confirmed Kirk's middle name as Tiberius.

- X-Men director Bryan Singer cameos in Star Trek: Nemesis as a replacement tactical officer on the bridge.

- Some shots for Into Darkness were filmed in Iceland, the first time any Star Trek film has shot outside of the U.S.
