I will briefly discuss some of the new pictures and let you choose your new desktop background at your own leisure.
The first picture below seems to show Chris Pine, Alice Eve and Simon Pegg as their respective Star Trek Characters examining some sort of capsule. I think it is too large to be a photon-torpedo. Could it be that Benedict Cumberbatch’s character John Harrison survived the Eugenics Wars with this. Or is it a Genesis torpedo?
The second image below shows Karl Urban’s character examining Benedict Cumberbatch through some sort of isolation screen. It is appears to be for security reasons rather than medical protection so I assume that Cumberbatch’s character is by this time already the established antagonist.
The third image show Bruce Greenwood as Admiral Pike and Chris Pine as Captain Kirk having a one-on-one chat. it is probably about Kirk’s maverick attitude to everything but it does seem that the two of a quiet rapport with each other.
The fourth image again show Chris Pine and Bruce Greenwood but this time there is definite tension. I assume it has something to do with Cumberbatch’s character. It is at least good to see that Greenwood’s character gets some decent on-screen time in the sequel.
So far the promotion of the Star Trek sequel has omitted any reference to a Spock and Uhura romance. I can’t assume they have split up as there is enough drama to yet explore but the image at least show they can also behave professionally when necessary.
Thanks to Phantom for pointing out that Spock and Uhura do kiss in the first trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness.
It does seem to be a bit of a goodbye kiss than an actual romance.
Below you can find the remaining picture… Enjoy!
There is also a new poster for Star Trek Into Darkness. It features Benedict Cumberbatch with the epic words ‘Earth will Fall’. See it below….
