One of the big missing pieces from the Star Trek movie trailer released last week was Spock. Of course Zachary Quinto appears as young adult Spock (and Jacob Kogan as kid Spock), but what about SPOCK (as in Leonard Nimoy). In the TrekMovie comments co-writer Roberto Orci has been dropping hints that a new Nimoy-iffic trailer was on the way, and today it has arrived, check it out below.
Now this isn’t a new trailer, but it does drop Nimoy Spock into the one we have already seen. The trailer was given as an exclusive to AICN, and is available in 3 QuickTime resolutions. Click the image below to check it out.
UPDATE: According to Paramount, this is an online only trailer.
And there is no new footage except for the shot of Nimoy at the end. This was done by taking the Nero ‘the wait is over’ shot and moving it earlier replacing a shot of Chekov.
If you are not QuickTime friendly it is also available (in lower res) via YouTube
What is this scene?
This specific shot of Spock saying ‘live long and prosper’ was part of the four scene presentation that JJ Abrams has been showing around the world (see TrekMovie detailed report from LA). This is from a scene where older Spock (Nimoy) has met up with Kirk on a frozen planet after he has been ejected off the Enterprise by younger Spock (Zachary Quinto). Spock and Kirk visit Scotty (where Kirk meets him for the first time) to seek his help beaming Kirk back to the USS Enterprise. Just before Scotty and Kirk beam back to the Enterprise, Spock gives Kirk the ‘live long and prosper’ Vulcan salute.

UPDATE 2: There are FOUR Spocks!
Star Trek co-writer has nitpicked TrekMovie (which is some kind of honor) by asking the question below "are you sure you only see three Spocks?". And indeed we are now sure we actually see four Spocks. Here are the other three Spocks.
