'Star Trek' Filming at California State University - Northridge?

We found some interesting photos that make a pretty good case for it.
If these pictures are accurate, it looks like this new Star Trek's idea of boldly going where no man has gone before, includes Northridge. According to Ain't It Cool News, a scooper sent them a few photos, from a film supposedly titled "Corporate Headquarters" that was shooting at California State University - Northridge. The funny thing is, the photos of these extras look strangely similar Starfleet Academy students, which could mean that the new J.J. Abrams Star Trek is filming at CSUN. Check out the images below.

The photos are largely taken from an elevated location, and you don't get a clear glimpse of what's really going on. However, there is a picture of a unique-looking space pod car gizmo that certainly does look Star Trek-ish as well.

Of course, it hasn't been confirmed that Star Trek is filming at the university, but these photos do seem do be quite convincing. We'll have more work on Star Trek/"Corporate Headquarters" as soon as we get more information.

Star Trek is scheduled for a theatrical release on May 8, 2009.

Star Trek was released May 8th, 2009 and stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Leonard Nimoy, Eric Bana, Bruce Greenwood, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams.

    Come on December 25th already. Hope the Star Trek franchise will be reborn, and why not restart from the beginning. Would be worried if it was an unknown at the helm, and not J.J Abrams.

    I work at CSUN and it IS Star Trek (not allowed to tell you how I know that). They're filming around our library and the quad in front of it.

    The first thought that came to mind when I saw these was that Northridge is suppose to serve as the Star Academy! But who knows, filming has barely begun and its way too early to tell. The storyline may even be similar to that of The Voyage Home; which would help explain the image too.

    Prob these are hardcore trekkie fans/film students remaking Star Trek....but why film in the middle of a university campus? People over there would surely notice and spread the word on this...
