When Kirk takes a seat in the USS Franklin, he buckles up with old fashioned hip seat belts. In the next shot, he suddenly has the newer shoulder chain-like seat belts The shoulder belts were there the whole time, he simply hadn't put them on yet; they cut away to other characters as Kirk put the shoulder belts on.

If you are a Star Trek fan, go see Star Trek Beyond.
This is the new Trek movie I've been waiting for; one where I didn't just love the cast, but the actual movie (and also the cast). It even does a few things I thought were impossible, like making me leave with Kirk in the running for my favorite character. For the first time, including in the TV series, I really feel like we get to see the ballsy, tactical genius that warrants the legend Kirk is supposed to become, and I've gotta hand it to Chris Pine because this time around he knocks it out of the park, as does everyone else in the cast.
Beyond is still very much an action movie first at its core, but it finally has the heart that the others lacked to make it really feel like a Trek film (funny how replacing someone who doesn't care about the series with Simon Pegg will do that). One of my problems with the previous movies is that I kept feeling like ridiculous things would happen for no reason other than JJ Abrams thought "wouldn't it be _awesome_ if...", without regard for whether it actually contributed to the story or, you know, made sense. I always left feeling like my intelligence had been insulted a bit (or more than a bit). This movie doesn't just avoid those ridiculous things, it does them, and then actually pays them off. Like, three or four times I started thinking to myself "oh movie, you were doing so well, but now you're trying too hard to be cool again, and it's totally not going to wo-- HOLY CRAP THAT WORKED AND MADE SENSE AND WAS Awesome".
There are also little nods in memory of both Nimoy and Yelchin, and a couple of well-placed love letters to the franchise as a whole that... well, let's just say there was a lot of dust in the theater by the end.
To sum up: Simon Pegg and company get it. The new Trek cast finally has a movie worthy of them, and it's about damn time.
