When Star Trek Beyond comes out on Friday, watch carefully and you'll see Jeff Bezos in the background. The founder of Amazon.com introduced us to the future of retail and is now participating in the future in a small role in the latest Star Trek movie. The Associated Press quotes director Justin Lin about the experience:

"He was awesome," said Lin. "It was like a president was visiting, you know? He had a big entourage! But it didn't matter because he was so into it. He had to wait around all day because it was one day we were shooting, like, three different scenes and, it was also credit to Jeff because ... he just nailed it every time."

Bezos has spoken in interviews of his passion for Star Trek and said his childhood dreams of space led him to found his private space travel company, named Blue Origin.

IMDb already lists Bezos in the film as a "Starfleet Official."
