    In this case, I can almost see the logic of putting the title at the end. I mean... Star Trek Beyond. It's like a promise, "Yes, there will be more. This is a new beginning."

    Apollo's hand appears on the left side of the screen, but where will Genesis and the doomsday machine show up?

    What did the title card look like?

    As I recall, pretty much just the title of the movie in the font we've seen on the posters.

    What I can't get over about the song is how softly and sweetly the line "You're just another brick and I'm a sledgehammer" is sung. It's rather incongruous. Between that and the weird emphasis on the last syllable of "sledgehammer," it's like the melody wasn't written for these lyrics.

    Robocop 2 wasn't the first. The Spaghetti western Once Upon A Time In The West, from the late '60s, saved the title for the very end of the movie. Although, unlike Robocop 2, it actually did have an opening credit sequence with the main cast, crew and director -- just not the title.

    Yes there was, that' s why I watched the end credits
    For Lenard Nimoy it read "In loving memory of Lenard Nimoy"
    For Anton Yelchin it read "For Anton"

    I've seen the movie multiple times already and I have not seen the doomsday machine. I have seen planets crushed or hit by the DM.

    I admit I only stayed for the dedications to Anton Yelchin and Leonard Nimoy but despite that I still managed to miss ALL of the easter eggs in the closing credits.

    However, the same day I did Star Trek Beyond, I also did Ghostbusters and I stayed all the way to the end for that one (and was I glad I did - but I won't explain why. Spoilers! Although it was quite amusing to see that the cinema I went to were allowing people in to see the next showing DURING the end credits so they got to see the post-credit scene before they watched the movie... idiots)

    Pro tip: download an app called Runpee. I know it's on Android but not sure if it's on iOS. Primarily it's an app for telling you good times to rush to the loo (you start a timer on the phone when the film starts and it vibrates in your pocket when a good pee-time arrives), however it also tells you if there's anything of note after the credits. It was very useful when I went to see Avengers: Age of Ultron which didn't have a post-credit scene.

    Anyway, with the promises of George Kirk appearing in a possible Star Trek XIV, would a post-credit scene in Star Trek movies be enough to persuade people to stick around?

    Is the content of credit animations (like the unnamed planets) canon?

    OT:l Always wondered why TNG and VOY/VGR never used pieces of their awesome credit scenes during actual episodes.

    No more than the giant rubber ducky or hamster wheel on the Enterprise-D's master situation display was canonical. The term "canon" refers to the overall body of work, not single details. A work that's treated as "real" overall can have individual elements that are mistakes or in-jokes or artistic embellishments and are not taken as literal or binding.

    On the whole, I'd think credit sequences would be considered symbolic, particularly ones as garishly overdesigned and fanciful as the end titles of the Bad Robot movies (which I have never liked -- I would've rather seen a more naturalistic montage of Enterprise missions).

    Lucas got in trouble because his name (as part of Lucasfilm) appeared at the beginning and the director didn't appear until the end. His (valid) complaint was that his name isn't Lucasfilm and his director credit was in the same place on Star Wars that Kershner's was on The Empire Strikes Back.

    Didn't Star Trek go through a similar issue with Roddenberry's "Created By" credit only appearing in the opening credits after they moved the writer / director credits to the front of the episode after the first season?

    Wouldn't that just be because the visuals were over?

    I too missed the Doomsday Machine both times.

    I don't think there is a Doomsday machine, there's an exploding planet that has a sorta conical shape to it, which I think maybe was mistaken by somebody as the Doomsday machine - and caused the rest of us to fruitlessly search for it in subsequent viewings. (Would love to be proven wrong however)

    Given Voyager's showed the ship cruising the Sol system, it wouldn't be very useable in the actual show!
