This YouTube video contains a few shots I can't quite place, apparently featuring a girl missing her school shuttle.

A redhead girl First girl seen from behind, the shuttle is departing without her, and she cannot reach it because of some kind of blue-ish force field

I'm not extremely well-versed in old Trek, but these images look very modern, meaning they have to come from Discovery, Picard or one of the Kelvin films. As far as I know I'm completely caught up with all of those, yet I still can't for the life of me recall having seen this scene before.

    No idea, but maybe Into Darkness? Noel Clarke’s character has a kid. A sick kid, admittedly. It’s not Discovery or Picard. Could be a Short Trek, I haven’t seen those. May 30, 2020 at 18:46

    I don't think it's Into Darkness, because they never showed a school in my memory. May 30, 2020 at 18:58

    'star trek girl missing her school shuttle' - your question made that the third hit instead of the second (SE is easy after you write the question)

1 Answer 1


This image shows a school shuttle heading for a school, or carrying kids home from school:

Wider view of the school suttle stop. A shuttle is hovering over it

It's from "Children of Mars," a Short Trek (Wikia link).

Modern Star Trek gives a better idea of what daily life is like on Earth. The two girls, who go to the same school, are Kima, a humanoid girl, and Lil, a human girl.

The Short Trek is set just a few years earlier than Star Trek: Picard.

This is a good review that describes the story--just watch out for spoilers in case you haven't seen it.
