This article and many others has a quote from Star Trek: Beyond writer Simon Pegg, saying that while writing the script, he reached out to Memory Alpha for help naming a device.
We actually wrote to the Memory Alpha guys and got them to name a certain device in the movie. I sent them a letter saying, ‘Can you come up with this for me?’ In two hours, they came back with an entire etymological history of what the thing was. It’s beautiful. It’s fantastic to have that support network.
Now that the movie is out, is there any indication as to what device this was?
