Star Trek Spock Photo Shows Off His “Volcano Suit”

It’s getting hot in herre. Apparently.

This image of Spock comes courtesy of On Location News, as quoted by MTV.

Looks like fun. For five minutes.

The image came with a blurb:

After first rehearsing the scene with a Spok Stunt Double Actor Zachary Quinto was then rigged to a wire in front of a large green screen and lifted to a height of 10 stories high then dropped at a high rate of speed as if he was falling. In the scene Spok is wearing a “Volcano Suit” and carrying an unknown piece of equipment with the Starfleet Emblem. A Volcano is somehow involved in this scene. The crew had a real fire burning off camera to catch the fire reflections on Spok’s “Volcano Suit”.

Spock descending into the heart of a volcano? For why?

I’m getting a Metroid vibe off the whole thing.
