WASHINGTON — The crew of the International Space Station is boldly going where no one has gone before — to see the new “Star Trek” film.

The three astronauts were offered a sneak peak of “Star Trek Into Darkness” days before it opens Thursday in the United States, seeing it not in 3-D, but Zero-G.

NASA spokesman Kelly Humphries said the movie was beamed up to the outpost Monday and the two Russians and American on board had a day off Tuesday. That gave them a chance to view it on their laptops. It’s unclear if they watched it.

U.S. astronaut Chris Cassidy is taking part Thursday in a Google+ hangout that’s bringing together two Earth-bound astronauts, film stars Chris Pine, Alice Eve and John Cho, and its director and screenwriter.
