We’ve known for a long time that there are Klingons in Star Trek Into Darkness. Nobody’s mentioned them much lately, though. Not entirely sure why. All part of
John Harrison’s JJ Abrams’ sinister masterplan, maybe.
But a new promo video for the film has included a brief clip of one without his mask-helmet on. This is the first image of a Nu Trek Klingon face to be released, so it’s probably no accident that it’s so fleeting.
You may have missed him, so here are some screencaps. One for each of the two clear frames. Sheesh.
They would seem to have gone more for the ‘stitched up with strings of leather’ than ‘cornish pasty’ look. Almost a shame they wear the masks at all, really.
Star Trek Into Darkness is out in the UK next Thursday, May 9th. The US release follows just over a week later, on the 17th. You can expect our review of the film… well, pretty soon, actually.
