Another Enterprise Will Beam You Up

Car rental company gets into the Star Trek game

With a name like Enterprise, how can you not be looking to partner with the new Star Trek movie?

Enterprise Rent-A-Car has launched a new advertising campaign that instead of telling customers they'll pick them up, they'll instead beam them up.

The tongue-in-cheek ad features the USS Enterprise in full view of the Enterprise parking lot, and customers that go through the usual suspects like Romulans (who always get the damage waiver), Klingons and Vulcans who like just short, concise answers over the phone.

To get into the spirit, some of the "employees" in the ad even learn some Klingon, even if they do have to watch out for cloaked vehicles in the parking lot.

Get a look at the Enterprise Rent-A-Car commercial helping to promote "Star Trek: Beyond."
