LIVERMORE, Calif., May 2 (UPI) -- Scenes from director J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Trek sequel are being shot at California's Lawrence Livermore Laboratory this week, officials said.

"We do have a film crew on site, known only as the HH project. We are not allowing media on the set, per their request," lab spokeswoman Lynda Seaver told the Oakland Tribune in an e-mail Tuesday.

Filming is taking place in the lab's spacious National Ignition Facility where scientists experiment with ultraviolet laser light, said Dale Kaye, president of the Livermore Valley Chamber of Commerce and a Livermore Valley film commissioner.

"It's very futuristic in there, so I can see how that would be a good backdrop," Kaye told the newspaper.

Set to open in May 2013, the untitled sequel to 2009's "Star Trek" will once again star Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban and Zoe Saldana.
