First Video From Star Trek Sequel Set – Possibly Shows Different Scotty Uniform Clue [UPDATED] February 23, 2012

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Celebrity,Comics,ST09 Cast,Star Trek Into Darkness , trackback

Star Trek’s Simon Pegg is a big fan of comics publisher 2000 AD and so yesterday he decided to send them a special birthday greeting. He did this in the form of a video he shot with the help of Star Trek’s Karl Urban, and it gives us our first (spoiler-free) glimpse from the sequel set. Check it out below.


First video from Star Trek sequel is actually b-day message to comic company

We are still waiting for Bob Orci to get the go-ahead to post some pictures from the sequel production, but so for now you can try to find something to glean from this video from Simon Pegg (featuring Karl Urban), shot on the Star Trek set at Sony Studios.

What can we see?

Well in the video both Pegg and Urban are wearing the Bad Robot-issued hooded coats which are meant to hide their costumes, even when walking around the lot. But if you look closely you can get hints of the costumes. Karl appears to be wearing his standard blue McCoy tunic, whereas Pegg is not wearing his standard red tunic, but something with a grey collar.

Karl can be seen with his standard blue uniform shirt

Kirk in his cadet shirt along with Scotty in his red tunic and Bones in his Blue tunic – from 2009’s "Star Trek"

Pegg doesn’t appear to be wearing his red uniform, but something with a grey collar

Purely speculating, but it is possible that Pegg is wearing one of the grey uniforms (or a variant), worn by officers seen at Starfleet Academy in the 2009 Star Trek movie. Of course, just like with the 2009 film, we will likely see characters in various different costumes for the sequel.

Can you spot anything? Sound off below?




1. Sebastian S. - February 23, 2012

Ah… so carefully shot as to avoid us seeing the actual set. Clever, guys!

At any rate, I’m just happy it’s being made! Loved Urban’s Dredd/Bat-voice.

2. rm10019 - February 23, 2012

lol very cool!

3. JIM - February 23, 2012


4. Hankster - February 23, 2012


5. Killamarshtrek - February 23, 2012

Is it me or is there something odd about Simon Pegg’s left eye?

6. Won Ton Photon - February 23, 2012

Pegg has had his hair colored dark brown.

7. Ciaran - February 23, 2012

Let the rampant speculation begin! LOL. I genuinely wonder why Pegg ain’t wearing his red tunic. Maybe he’s wearing the grey uniform that the officers wore while on Earth (Spock wore it during the assembly scene in ST2009).

8. VZX - February 23, 2012


So, for those keeping score of set shots: Pegg: 2, Orci: 0.

I couldn’t really tell, but was Pegg’s hair colored to be kinda brown-ish like in the 2009 movie? It looks like his regular hair color. I really don’t care what his hair color is, just an observation.

9. drumvan - February 23, 2012

i could have sworn i heard somebody yelling “kahn” in the background. you heard it too, right?

10. VZX - February 23, 2012

7. OK: so if it’s an Earth-stationed Starfleet uniform, why would they be on Earth again? Is Earth threatened again? Maybe the crew splits up! I mean, as in they go on seperate paths. Sort of like Empire Strikes Back.

11. PaulB - February 23, 2012

#5 – Yeah, his left eye just isn’t right. :)

12. Bill Peters - February 23, 2012

Maybe it is working Uniform for Chief Engineer, kind like what Scotty wore in Star Trek II

13. CmdrR - February 23, 2012

I hope they’re not wearing Nikes and sleeping in bunk beds.
Kinda creepy to have em all in the same windbreakers.

14. Basement Blogger - February 23, 2012

Pegg could be wearing a uniform needed for a particular job. Or he could be wearing a jacket for an away team. Anyway, I’ll say it again.


15. Jay - February 23, 2012

lol…. there is no telling why he has a different uniform on. could just be one scene that he is wearing it. There is no telling what part of the movie this scene could be in…. begining, middle, end?

For one or more of the characters to be back on Earth for some scene in this movie would not surprise me. Certainly wouldn’t sugest to me that the crew split up.

Also, the uniform could be mission specific. Like the jump suits they wore when they space jumped to the platform in 2009 Trek.

16. Craiger - February 23, 2012

I was thinking maybe we aren’t getting that much news from the set because we already know what the ships, uniforms and pretty much how the Abrams Trek Universe looks from the first reboot movie. Wouldn’t the only things left would be who the villain is, what characters the supporting actors are playing and what the plot is?

17. AJ - February 23, 2012

The left eye looks as if it’s made up to seem as if it is healing from an impact of some kind. A fight?

18. VZX - February 23, 2012

15. Ok, I said it off the cuff.

Mission specific sounds plausible.

19. Jay - February 23, 2012

His eye does seem to have some bruising near his check bone. Maybe just the lighting, but could be makeup.

#16 I would still love seeing some spy photos or something.

Like when we got shots from the Academy scenes. Seems like there would be less reason NOT to show those type things since letting us know what the uniforms looks like is not a spoiler anymore. You know what I’m saying? In the 2009 film they went out of their way to hide the uniforms for a long time. I don’t see any point in that now.

Showing us some set pics, like those from the Academy scenes in 2009, would not give away any secrets, but would be cool to fans like us.

Like everyone looking at that big blue screen….. how did that help you in any way imagine the actual scene in the movie when they added the CGI? It didn’t. So there would be no harm in doing the same thing now.

20. VZX - February 23, 2012

16: good point. But, then why all the secrecy? Why bother wearing the black jackets?

21. Sam - February 23, 2012

Look up Benedict Cumberbatch’s look at the Golden Globes – definite moustache being grown with a possible beard – all black = Khan? Will see what he looks like at the Oscars – hoping that they show him on the red carpet – if its red hair, then we are out of luck by the way – its actually his natural colour! It must be said that am hoping for medium length black hair but think we might have to wait until after Hobbit for that…….Sherlock! We are all counting the days until we find out how he survived the jump!

22. Jay - February 23, 2012

There has got to be someone out there with a cell phone that can take some spy photos!!!!

Maybe all the filming so far has been in studio and they haven’t done any on-location shooting yet. That would at least explain why there are no spy photos or leaks about people discovering their location shoots like last time.

23. psychojediboy - February 23, 2012

My guess is it’s a dress uniform, and that this more formal uniform is what officers assigned to the Academy wear on a day to day basis.

24. Dee - lvs moon' surface - February 23, 2012

OMG … we happy with so little … but I needed a few more seconds of Bones …;-) :-)

25. Jay - February 23, 2012

#23 True. There could be a million different reasons why he would be wearing a dress uniform.

We all know that in most of the Trek movies the characters wore more than one uniform in the film, so it’s nearly pointless to try to speculate why.

But it is fun to see something!!

By the way Anthony…. has there been any hint of a viral website for the movie yet? Wasn’t there for the 2009 film? JJ seems to always have one of those for his projects.

26. jas_montreal - February 23, 2012

ahaha, how did this get past boborci ? Is someone gonna get super pist ? lol

Simon Pegg has a bruised eye. Which is interesting.

27. Dee - lvs moon' surface - February 23, 2012

They seem to be using makeup for the characters … I love it………….. SCOTT and BONES… ;-) :-)

28. Christopher Roberts - February 23, 2012

Hmmm. Flashback scenes revealing why Scotty had been sent to Delta Vega for six months? Punch-up disagreement at the Academy, over his theory about transporting across great distances?

29. Lousy Canadian - February 23, 2012

Although the collar’s grey, it looks a bit similar to the collar of the uniforms from the Wrath of Khan. A puffy turtle neck type. Lordy, I must be deamin’.

30. Khan's Mullet - February 23, 2012

Does look similar to Spocks starfleet grey uniform… I guess both Spock and Scotty are the most longest serving Starfleet officers among the crew (albeit one of them was marooned on an ice planet).

Oh and don’t be surprised if Pegg is throwing a curve ball with the eye make up…

31. La Reyne d'Epee - February 23, 2012

Instructor uniform from the Academy on Earth perhaps?

32. Khan's Mullet - February 23, 2012

Good to see the enterprise’s grumpiest officers again!

33. portho's bitch - February 23, 2012

Anyone notice the background behind pegg ..? Something there vaugely resembles the take up reel on an old school projector…also the walls behind pegg resemble the walls inside the storage containers that khan uses for a dwelling in STII twok.

34. Orly - February 23, 2012

Benedict was photographed yesterday!/SpencerHart/status/172539179748687872/photo/1

Also videod

35. Lords Of Kobol Book - February 23, 2012

Oh, you didn’t know?

They find the Botany Bay, but they don’t save Khan in time when his sleep chamber malfunctions, so he dies.

Cumberbatch is playing one of the other Augments on board and it’s all downhill from there.

36. Jack - February 23, 2012

33. Isn’t it just the soundstage?

And, couldn’t Pegg just be wearing, say, a zip up sweatshirt under there? I know, I’m no fun.

I wish I was a better speculator, in every sense.

37. Stoner Cricket - February 23, 2012

I agree with AJ. Simon Pegg’s eye looks like Make up to me. Maybe he is in Sickbay and that’s why he is in a different uniform or a Medical gown, and also why he is on the set with Dr. McCoy/Karl Urban.

38. Admiral Kirk - February 23, 2012

could be like the radiation suit from the early films?

39. Simon - February 23, 2012

I’m probably alone in this but the first time I liked the uniforms in STAR TREK was in THE WRATH OF KHAN.

Never cared for the TOS outfits. Or the TNG ones for that matter, until FIRST CONTACT.

40. Anthony Pascale - February 23, 2012

yes the walls behind them are just the inside of the very large soundstage at Sony…clearly he made sure the camera was not pointed to any of the sets constructed inside. I am sure if the camera turned just to the left you would see some cool stuff, but they didnt’

41. The one - February 23, 2012


42. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire. - February 23, 2012

To bad Anthony. Hey Bob Orci. We all know you are Lurking around. So please. Decloak and gives us something about the new movie. Please!.

43. section9 - February 23, 2012

If that was Cumberbatch, he looked as if he was wearing Starfleet regulation sideburns.

Serious as a heart attack.

44. BoltBait - February 23, 2012

I’m heading to Las Vegas for the 2012 Convention in August. I’m rather disappointed that (so far at least) there are no NEW Trek actors scheduled to attend.

What gives?!

45. jamesingeneva - February 23, 2012

Is it me, or is there a red banner hanging over on the far right side of the screen behind McKoy by what looks like a door? Also, two people walk behind Pegg in black coats can’t see too much on them but it looks like one guys walks buy with a white doctors or lab outfit. Maybe this is our jump start on the viral boat? I assume the video had to be sanctioned, @BobORCI any word?

46. T'Cal - February 23, 2012

#43 – I saw the sideburns too! Definitely Starfleet regulation…

Perhaps the clothing Pegg is wearing is the black/grey body suit that the Borg wear. The make up around his eye is where the Borg eyepiece gets glued on.

47. jamesingeneva - February 23, 2012

ok so the red banner I was thinking of actually looks more like a red ladder so ignore that, but I swear by the rest. The one chick with the robe on that walks by has a white coller, maybe an admirals collar similar to Pikes at the end of ST09? She looks young for an Admiral but who knows…

48. Nony - February 23, 2012


That woman’s shoes appear to be white, too. I was thinking it might be a nurse – the nurses in XI had short white boots.

And she has blond hair. Chapel!?

49. jamesingeneva - February 23, 2012

Hey, good thinking! Very well might be! And that would go along with Scotty having a bruised eye, he’s down in sick bay getting all fixed up by the doc.

50. Phil - February 23, 2012

Hey, it’s my birthday, too. How about that….

Yeah, yeah, shameless. I know.

51. Pat Payne - February 23, 2012

If Cristian Bale is not available, Karl Urban IS Batman!

52. Vultan - February 23, 2012

If you look closely, you can actually see Bigfoot’s elbow entering the frame between 00:03 and 00:05 seconds.

53. VZX - February 23, 2012

Maybe they are filming another bar scene. Bones and Scotty sharing a drink.

54. PEB - February 23, 2012

I’m thinking it could be this universe’s version of the egineer’s suit that we saw in the earlier trek films. Just a possibility. Also, Kirk had an alternate uniform(top) during TOS, so….

55. dmduncan - February 23, 2012

That’s not a ladder in the background. Deflector dish tower.

Those yellow spikey things? Klingon photon torpedoes.

And I’m not even going to mention what I found when I zoomed in on the reflection in Simon Pegg’s eyes.

56. Tanner Waterbury - February 23, 2012

Ehh… so I don’t understand why Karl Urban is in a jacket… looks like the same uniform he wore in

57. Tanner Waterbury - February 23, 2012

the first movie…didn’t finish the sentence previous post.

58. Nony - February 23, 2012


Never know, he might have a tear in his uniform, or bloodstains or phaser burns, something that would give a plot point away…

59. NuFan - February 23, 2012

Who punched Scotty? And why does Cumberbatch have black hair?

60. AJ - February 23, 2012

This may be an ACTUAL SCENE from the film!

61. Dee - lvs moon' surface - February 23, 2012

I’m curious to know what those women, I think they are women, behind Simon and Karl… in their heads is a hairstyle or a turban? … my editing on the link below:

;-) :-)

62. Brian L - February 23, 2012

seen one brewery set seen them all

63. Magic_Al - February 23, 2012

So it’s a secret if something DIDN’T change? I don’t think suspense works that way.

64. rogerachong - February 23, 2012

Cumberbatch has the same hairstyle as Spock (note the littlr peak of hair at the back of his neck and the starfleet sideburns). He has to be a vulcan, he just does not have on the ears for his evening dinner apparently.

65. J - February 23, 2012

(Raspy Nimoy voice) “In Search Of… Nurse Chapel’s Shoelace.”

66. Will - February 23, 2012

I still will never like the melty delta insignia. It just doesn’t look right to me. I miss the sharp defined lines and points.

67. Trekker5 - February 23, 2012

Awesome!! :) With just this little bit I am excited!! :) I’ll likely past out when a pic is released! :)

68. Shilliam Watner - February 23, 2012

I just hope Uhura’s skirt is shorter ;-)

69. NoRez - February 23, 2012

Somewhat off-topic, but is there a placeholder website for the film yet? We used to keep the site open on the computers at work (the one that just showed the four ‘security camera’ (sic) feeds, with some sort of welding being done on the saucer.) Every so often we’d see if anything would happen… it felt so silly but it was exciting somehow, lol.

Loving the discussion. If I start speculating I’ll start going nuts so I’m just trying to wait as patiently as possible. Coming from the days when there was just one show that had been off the air for many a year, I never dreamed of THIS. And it’s great.

(thank goodness Lucas has nothing to do with ‘Trek.)

70. Tony Todd's Tears - February 23, 2012

Uh, I think he was just wearing a coat to hide his costume.

Dad! We’re here to rescue you!!

71. Harry Ballz - February 23, 2012


dmduncan “I’m not even going to mention what I found when I zoomed in on the reflection in Simon Pegg’s eyes”

Pure lust?

72. CarlG - February 23, 2012

So, how does Karl Urban’s Dred voice sound? Does it pass muster?

(I know nothing of Judge Dredd, but I hope it turns out well for the fans!)

73. N - February 23, 2012

Spock’s uniform isn’t grey, it’s black. At least it definitely looks black to me.

74. cd - February 23, 2012

Cumberbatch is Stonn!

75. Quatlo - February 23, 2012

Urban does a great Dirty Harry voice.

76. T.'. - February 23, 2012

I like the uniforms, more or less, with a couple caveats;
First, lose the combination covers with no cover. it is not futuristic, just dorky. Grey covers, with the cool UFP badge as we already have, would be fine.
Second, the Admiralty uniforms worn by Tyler Perry and others I am hoping were specific to the Academy — I assume the dress uniform we see donned by Pike at the conclusion to be more specific to active duty Starfleet.
The grey uniform worn by officer/instructors at the Academy was one of my favorites, actually, and I saw it as more of a Forbidden Planet acknowledgment than a Star Wars motif, but that’s me.

(Suggestion for sequel uniforms — short sleeves, a la ST:TMP, but no jumpsuits, if possible…)


77. Anthony Pascale - February 23, 2012

One of the nice things about having big budgets is getting to see the characters in different costumes. While I love the 80s Trek films, we didn’t see a lot of variety in the wardrobe. TMP was also good for variety, Kirk changed outfits every scene practically.

I believe we will see both costumes from the ST2009 film along with some new outfits in this film

78. Buzz Cagney - February 23, 2012

#43 I agree. They are defo Starfleet issue siddies.
So unless Khan has joined the Fleet then we know he ain’t Khan.

79. Keachick - rose pinenut - February 23, 2012

I hope they do not mess with the TOS like uniforms. The uniforms went downhill after TOS. The style and colours of the uniforms gave a unique look with their tidy, but more casual appearance. Frankly, why would people travelling in the vast distances of space be in more formal attire anyway? Like an alien is going to be bothered…?

80. - February 23, 2012

I doubt the costumes will be too messed with. Pegg was probably wearling a jacket unthe bad robot coat. Isn’t it winter over there?

81. Chasco - February 23, 2012

Or, like #36 said, maybe the standard issue hooded coats aren’t warm enough and he put on a zip-up fleece underneath.

82. DJT - February 24, 2012

Could it be… the much speculated 50 foot Enterprise set in the background?


83. Randomosity - February 24, 2012

So Bennybaby’s hair is black but he doesn’t have the vulcan bangs or shaved eyebrows… Does this mean we can rule out any sort of Vulcan villain? I’d love to hear more of people’s thoughts on who he will be playing based off his hair cut. My guess is still new human villian…

84. Bob Tompkins - February 24, 2012

Interesting that the policy seems to be to even hide the known wardrobe that carried over from 09. Now THAT’s a little bit too paranoid about security.

85. Ciaran - February 24, 2012

Interesting to see that there is still no comment from Bob Orci about this. Somebody’s in trouble, methinks!! Lol.

86. Greenberg - February 24, 2012

*someone wheels the Guardian of Forever past on a trolley*

STAGE HAND: Woah woah watch it, CAMERA

87. captainkirk - February 24, 2012

Just before Karl Urban talks, someone says “It’s like, stuck in my brain.” This proves that there will be Ceti eels in the movie.

88. Jai - February 24, 2012

In an explosive extract from the sequel’s script (okay, I just made all that up), I’m able to finally reveal the real reason that Scotty had ended up on that ice planet in ST09, exclusive to Trekmovie:

Admiral Archer leaves a high-level meeting at Starfleet Headquarters in the middle of the night, and stumbles across Scotty digging a large hole in the gardens.

Archer: Mr Scott. What are you doing out here at this time of night ?
Scotty: My pet rabbit died. I’m giving it a burial.
Archer: I’m very sorry to hear that. But isn’t that a mighty big hole for a little rabbit ?
Scotty: That’s because it’s inside your beagle.

89. killamarshtrek - February 24, 2012

I think you’ll find that is Benedict Cumberbatch’s normal hairstyle (and sideburn style) when not playing Sherlock so all we can deduce from this is – no shaved eyebrows means he’s NOT a Vulcan!

He’s either Human or some alien who’s make up covers his hair!

90. Jack - February 24, 2012

Total speculation on the jackets — protection from: the lasagna at the craft services table, Bothan spies, moths, make-up smudges, fellow cast-members with cellphone cameras, grubby paws, wrinkles, the cold (don’t they keep soundstages/sets chilly, because of all the lights?).

PS. i posted as J (accidentally) above.

91. killamarshtrek - February 24, 2012

I deduce the girl walking past in the white coat is probably discussing a line she keeps fluffing because something’s “like stuck in her head”. And the girl with the strange head gear could be wearing a motion capture suit with a camera on her head to film the actress speaking her lines.

Beat that Sherlock!

92. Orly - February 24, 2012

More new photos of Cumberbatch

93. Vulcan Fury - February 24, 2012

Who knows in comic Star Trek Ongoing: The Vendetta Conspiracy will we see Sybok?

94. Spockalicious - February 24, 2012

needs more lens flares

95. DaddlerTheDalek - February 24, 2012

curious about Cumberbatch’s Role…

96. CAPT KRUNCH - February 24, 2012

Karl Urban is the coolest…….. Probably better that Stallone’s Dredd..I’m sure…though nothing could be worse………
Simon’s eye does look a little puffy…maybe a bar fight sceen or something… better be some “green” liquor in that sceen??
NO SYBOK or KHAN please….someone NEW pleassssssseeeee….

97. USSEXETER - February 24, 2012

After seeing the photos on this thread my guess would be Cumberbatch’s role will be Gary Mitchell. He has the Starfleet sideburns in those above pics so I assume he’s in Starfleet.

98. USSEXETER - February 24, 2012

Plus everyone is speculating that Cumberbatch is the villain, so Gary Mitchell is good guy gone bad. My .02 cents

99. Adolescent Nightmare - February 24, 2012


He gets to keep his normal haircut because they have him in a wig for


100. Locke for President - February 24, 2012

Some subtle wardrobe changes will show that some time has elapsed for these characters between the movies.

Last movie Kirk wore briefs, but in this one he wears boxers.

Plans for the third movie include Kirk wearing a house robe and slippers while lounging in his quarters.

By the fourth movie, Bones will be giving him a pair or reading glasses. And also a box of pills to help with his little problem in the downstairs department.

It’s all to show the growth and graceful aging of the character.

101. Jack - February 24, 2012

Cumberbatch has pretty pointy sideburns in those pap. photos. Let the speculation continue…

p.s. This is exactly why, I’d guess, that they are loathe, generally, to post photos from the set.

p.s.2 Those ladies with the hairdos are with the top secret Hello, Dolly! Reimagining being filmed next door.

102. Jack - February 24, 2012

This just in:

Actual set photos — Cumberbatch getting schooled by Spock

103. Jack - February 24, 2012

104. Montreal_Paul - February 24, 2012

Interesting pics! Seeing the costume that Cumberbatch is wearing, all I can say is… Yay! No more Khan speculation!!

105. WannaBeatle - February 24, 2012

I haven’t been around as much as I used to be. how come they’re at Sony instead of Paramount???

I was just at Paramount a couple weeks back, working as an extra on Glee (just a hair under 40 and still playing high school haha). I was hoping to run into anyone working on Trek then.

106. RetroWarbird - February 27, 2012

I’m personally hoping for a 50/50 compromise between Pegg in classic Scotty red, and maybe a gray undershirt with something akin to the mechanic’s vest Doohan wore in the later films. Not so much the light gray onesie from TMP.

107. Bruce Banner - March 1, 2012

OMG! Pegg appears to be wearing something similar to what the guy fighting Spock in the leaked pics was wearing.

108. Nuallain - March 1, 2012

Did you know Simon Pegg plays Johnny Alpha in the series of audio plays based on 2000ad’s Stronium Dog comic strip? So that’s Dredd and Alpha wishing 2000ad a happy birthday! is represented by Gorilla Nation. Please contact Gorilla Nation for ad rates, packages and general advertising information.
