More Star Trek Sequel Set Photos – Chris Pine Spotted March 1, 2012

by Staff , Filed under: Celebrity,Star Trek Into Darkness , trackback

More spy photos from the Star Trek sequel set have emerged, this time featuring Chris Pine, along with Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto. The new photos are more behind the scenes with the actors in their street clothes going back and forth to the set. See below.


Pine spotted on Star Trek sequel set

The new batch of photos don’t reveal anything, but show Chris Pine with co-star Zoe Saldana on a golf cart, along with Zachary Quinto milling around. It is possible that Pine and Saldana are joined by actor Noel Clarke on their golf cart, but it is hard to tell. Again no one appears to be wearing a costume from the film.





More photos at JustJared and PopSugar.

2. The Great Bird of the Galaxy lives! - March 1, 2012

Wow, these are revealing

3. r0bt3k - March 1, 2012

lol you beat me to it great bird,

lol wow they must be golfing in this next movie! ENEMY TIGER WOODS

4. r0bt3k - March 1, 2012

he comes back in time to prevent is Infidelity and destroy the federation!

5. Harley3k - March 1, 2012

Spock has pointed ears?!@#

6. Erst - March 1, 2012

this might be actual footage….STAR TREK IV reboot anybody?

7. Really folks?? - March 1, 2012

Oh my gawd!!!

They just spoiled the entire picture for me…it gave me the beginning, middle and end of the picture!!

Please Bob Orci…save me!!!

8. captain spock - March 1, 2012

the cloths noel clark has on looks alot romulan or klingon.

9. Harry Ballz - March 1, 2012

These new photos provide us with all the evidence we need to surmise the title of the next movie……..

Star Trek: Caddyshack Rebellion

10. Daoud - March 1, 2012

Noel’s short hair makes me think of M’Benga.

11. Surak - March 1, 2012

Is it really that chilly in SoCal right now???

12. Daoud - March 1, 2012

And Boma

13. Peter N - March 1, 2012

These photos will make much more sense once we have strung together all of the clues about the new movie that are being peppered into the IDW “Ongoing” comic books. Like the fact (?) that Gary Mitchell is dead (again).

14. Khan 2.0 - March 1, 2012







15. Trekker5 - March 1, 2012

Awesome!! Me love it!! :)

16. dmduncan - March 1, 2012

Look! The NUMBER 44 is on the right fender of the golf cart.

Calling numerologists NOW!

17. Ted C - March 1, 2012

ooooo people on a golf cart. So “behind the scenes”. Where is the list of things we can figure out from these photos?

18. what?! - March 1, 2012

“It is possible that Pine and Saldana are joined by actor Noel Clarke on their golf cart, but it is hard to tell.”

Yep, ’cause all black people look alike.

19. Ted C - March 1, 2012

#14 Why did you type each word on a separate line? Actually, more importantly, who care’s about his hair.

20. njdss4 - March 1, 2012

This clearly indicates that Benedict Cumberbatch is playing Khan. As you can see, Kirk, Spock, and Uhura have had the Enterprise stolen from them by Khan, and now they’re stuck driving a golf cart around. They keep calling it a “shuttlecraft”, but they’re too upset to admit that it’s just a golf cart. /sarcasm

21. Nomad - March 1, 2012

14: It’s Evil Twin Kirk. Must be a remake of Mirror, Mirror or The Enemy Within.

22. Sebastian S. - March 1, 2012

Quinto looks so much like a young Leonard Nimoy it’s almost spooky.

1 year, 2 months and a few days to go …. ;-)

23. Khan 2.0 - March 1, 2012



24. Reign1701A - March 1, 2012

I don’t get why they do that Chris Pine’s hair for Kirk. His normal hair looks more Kirk-like, both in style and color.

25. crazydaystrom - March 1, 2012

#17 what?!

Really?! Had to go there?!

26. MattR - March 1, 2012

Spock should wear a hoodie through the whole movie. :)

27. Michael Hall - March 1, 2012

“Is it really that chilly in SoCal right now???”


28. section9 - March 1, 2012

What Noel is wearing looks as if it’s a Klingon undertunic.

That’s all I’ve got.

29. Ctrl-Opt-Del - March 1, 2012

Doesn’t look like Noel Clarke to me…

30. Quatlo - March 1, 2012


31. danielcraigsmywookiebitchnow - March 1, 2012

11 for the last few days yes it has been pretty chilly, its a good deal warmer today though thankfully.

32. Thorny - March 1, 2012

16… Golf Cart 44 is the TOS Golf Cart. By the time of Next Generation, they’re up to 44-D, commanded by Captain Vick on a quest to eradicate coughs and sore throats…

33. Dee - lvs moon' surface - March 1, 2012

Yes… apparently waiting on the set is boring… and they seemed to be freezing there… but not Mr. Spock, of course… and Zoe appears making faces in some photos, I bet was because of the cold day.

;-) :-)

34. PaulB - March 1, 2012

18. what?! “Yep, ’cause all black people look alike.”

Nope, it’s because you cannot see his face in the photos. Not even slightly race-related, nothing for you to troll here, move along.

35. punkspocker - March 1, 2012


36. T'Cal - March 1, 2012

Star Trek: The Wrath of Carl the Groundskeeper!
Joachim (sp?) will be played by the gopher…

37. Viking - March 1, 2012

If anyone is interested, I saved, then sharpened and reduced the noise in both the Pine photos. From the collar and a little left sleeve poking out of his pea coat, it looks like he may be wearing the same gray tunic we saw a glimpse of Simon Pegg in. It also look like he may have some sort of large belt buckle, a la the movie era uniforms. Then again, Zoe Saldana is wearing jeans, so they may both be in street clothes and are wearing coats to screw with our stealth shutterbug. Who knows.

38. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - March 1, 2012

OMG!!!!. What a Spoiler. Pine Relaxing. Wait. Must be Kirk preparing to play Fisbin. Can’t wait to see it in the movie.

39. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - March 1, 2012

#18. For that Comment. Mongo. Head of Empire Security will round you up and place you in the Agony Booth for a period of no less then 48 hours set on High.

40. Dee - lvs moon' surface - March 1, 2012

There’s more photos of Zoe here:

41. Phil - March 1, 2012

@11. Chilly is relative, but yes, it’s been cold here the last few days.

At least we know who our SoCal contingent is here…maybe we are the spies….

42. Martin - March 1, 2012

Are the cast really in costume for filming, they must be zach’s got the hair and ears made up already and they all have what looks like red scripts.

43. The Sky's The Limit - March 1, 2012

Movie Title: Star Trek: Y’all are PUNKED! These are pics of JJ’s Halloween party!

44. NanoTechDudeLA - March 1, 2012


The answer is: Yes, it’s chilly!
I even managed to catch a cold – my best friends these days are Vicks and Nyquil :)

45. Sebastian S. - March 1, 2012

The only one ‘in character’ appears to be Quinto…

46. shpock - March 1, 2012

i’m starting to think Chris Pine is in this film

47. Phil - March 1, 2012

Star Trek: Men In Black IV

48. Captain Dunsel - March 1, 2012

Actually these photos do reveal a significant production detail. We now know exactly why filming was delayed until this time of year. It’s the only way JJ Abrams could get away with making his actors wear coats over their costumes.

49. Phil - March 1, 2012

Inquiring minds MUST know… does ZQ get the hoodie off without pulling off the ears?

50. Phil - March 1, 2012

Now this is funny….the pop up ad on the bottom of the ZQ/Car photo asks “Are you looking for a furniture dealer”. Spock must be selling chairs for the new Vulcan colony somewhere…..

51. Tony Whitehead - March 1, 2012

I’m not sure, but l think he’s asking for a 5-iron.

52. Red Dead Ryan - March 1, 2012

I like how everyone is getting excited over a bunch of pictures of the cast members sitting around wearing sweaters and coats in Los Angeles. And complaining about how “cold” it is!

53. Nano - March 1, 2012

What’s considered cold in CA 60?

54. Anthony Thompson - March 1, 2012

That costume Noel is wearing is remindful of TOS Klingon.

55. Bucky - March 1, 2012

Man, I so hope we’re all wrong and this is actually footage from the movie. Seriously, how cool would that be?

“Damn, you left the keys for the Enterprise with the guy who’s been trying to kill us all movie?”
“My mistake, Captain.”

56. Anthony Thompson - March 1, 2012

These paparazzi shots we’re seeing are indicative of the renewed interest in Star Trek. JJ could maintain secrecy much easier during the making of the first film because very few folks outside of us core fans were aware / interested that another Trek movie was being made. ’09 and JJ’s growing rep have changed all that.

57. Keachick - rose pinenut - March 1, 2012

60 degrees fahrenheit = 16 degrees celsius which means it is coolish, but I wouldn’t think you would need to wear a thick overcoat like the one Chris is wearing.

I need to convert as I grew up on metrics and celsius, so fahrenheit means nothing to me. It is 20 degress C here now = 68 degrees F and I am wearing a light jersey. It is certainly not what I would call especially cold. In fact, it is quite pleasant.

I have been told by kiwis visiting LA that a lot of the residents are in jerseys while the kiwis are just wearing short sleeved tee-shirts. It seems that people in LA appear to feel the cold more.

Zoe appears quite upset, miserable and Chris and Zoe are conversing and he is comforting her. From the blurriness of the pictures, these do look they have been taken from quite a distance away and have been blown up. These may be genuinely candid photos, so the pictures of Chris do look especially nice. Anyway, that’s my impression.

58. sterj - March 1, 2012

Kirk and Uhura snuggling on shore leave?

Spock ejected from a soccer match? (Note the red card)

I don’t know about you, but…


59. VZX - March 1, 2012

They can’t be in costume, unless ripped jeans are still considered to be stylish in the 23rd century.

60. Keachick - rose pinenut - March 1, 2012

#59 Anything is possible…:)

61. captain spock - March 1, 2012

62. Basement Blogger - March 1, 2012

As a cop would say, “Nothing to see here.”

63. Bucky - March 1, 2012

Pine has to rock that jacket just cuz he probably only wears it once a year at Sundance or something so might as well, eh?

64. DJT - March 2, 2012


65. ilker - March 2, 2012

so they travel back in time to earth 2000s… cool, that’s original :p

66. Spacecadet - March 2, 2012

after all it is a good feeling, they are finally doing something :)

67. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) - March 2, 2012

So, I am wondering if these pics were ok’d. Probably not is my guess. Nothing too significant has been given away by any of the photos so far, but if people keep being able to take snapshots, then who knows what will be included in the next batch.

As much as I love seeing Zachary :-) in his cute hoodies and Spock make-up (I notice his brows haven’t been applied yet in these photos), I also hope that the set gets the additional security it may need.

Good luck to all involved in the process. :-)

68. CmdrR - March 2, 2012

Harry Ballz Presents: “Caddyshack Rebellion” in 3-D and smellovision

Chekov: (looking at poster at hair salon) Oh, this is the worst-looking haircut I ever saw. What, when you buy a haircut like this I bet you get a free bowl of soup, huh?
[looks at Spock, who’s wearing the same haircut]
Chekov: Oh, it looks good on you though.
Kirk to Uhura: You’re rather attractive for a beautiful girl with a great body.
and finally:

Chekov: Hey everybody, we’re all gonna get laid!

69. La Reyne d'Epee - March 2, 2012

I finally realise what the title of the new film will be.

“Golf Cart To The Stars”

70. Lancelot Narayan - March 2, 2012

Please stop doing this.

I know it’s probably your duty to bring the fans all the news, but please don’t alienate Paramount and the kids from Bad Robot.

71. Captain Dunsel - March 2, 2012

@50. Phil – [the pop up ad on the bottom of the ZQ/Car photo asks “Are you looking for a furniture dealer”.]

Now, if that ad had asked, “Are you looking for a dealer in kevas and trillium?” THAT would be significant!

72. drumvan - March 2, 2012

i swear that golf cart looks exactly like the botany bay. KHAAAAAAAANNNN!! ;)

73. Daoud - March 2, 2012

The red “card” Quinto has is script? What better way to keep tabs on scripts.
At the sites with more pictures, the person we’re assuming is Noel also has a red packet.
We have only one conclusion: the script is made of red matter.
That explains it being undefined, shifting, and changing before their eyes!

74. Shannon Nutt - March 2, 2012

If Kirk ACTUALLY wore shades and a trenchcoat in the movie, it would be pretty damn cool. :)

75. VZX - March 2, 2012

73. Daoud: Also, it would be very unstable. And heavy. Red Matter is supposed to have the density of a black hole, so those red cards could have the mass of a mountain.

Spock is really strong.

76. Buzz Cagney - March 2, 2012

#68 and they can get Keenser doing something worthwhile in this movie. Something like this….

77. Rykerw1701 - March 2, 2012

I just wish there was a spolier warning with these.

78. DS9 IN PRIME TIME - March 2, 2012

Star Trek XII: The New Federation

79. THX-1138 - March 2, 2012

“I want pictures! Give me pictures from the new Star Trek! I simply cannot go on without some spy pics! Please Bob Orci give us something!”

“Not these pictures. These pictures are boring. We want different pictures.”

80. Harry Ballz - March 2, 2012


I like it, CmdrR!

Smellovision? the mind reels! :>)

81. Dr. Cheis - March 2, 2012

So it’s confirmed that Spock will go jogging in the new film!

82. - March 2, 2012

Darn, it is Khan.

83. Dee - lvs moon' surface - March 2, 2012

#57. Keachick…

Well, almost every girl feels miserable at times … especially on a cold day… what a lucky girl Zoe/Uhura who had Captain Fine to comfort her… LOL

;-) :-)

84. MONGO - March 2, 2012

Mongo hope Zoe ladies OK. Mongo like pretty Zoe ladies. If someone mean to Zoe ladies Mongo get mad.

Person that make Zoe ladies sad not want make Mongo mad.

85. AdamTrek - March 2, 2012

The fact that pointy sideburns are part of the rebootiverse is just full of complete win for me. It’s the details that count.


86. n1701ncc - March 2, 2012

how about a pic of cumbatch eyes turning silver…. aka Gary Mitchell, or Pike in tthe wheel chair….Talos IV…then we can get some answers

87. Do You Wanna Dance - March 2, 2012

See the license plate of the car? It’s NCC-1701. The Enterprise is now a Beamer.

88. Richard Dawson's Ruffled Shirt - March 2, 2012


My effing thoughts exactly! thank you.

89. Keachick - rose pinenut - March 2, 2012

I am happy that we have these photos. They don’t tell us anything about the story or characters, but it seems clear that they are on a studio lot. I can’t see why JJ Abrams could have a problem with these pictures being taken and shown.

OT – an article noted that release dates for several new movies have been announced. One of these movies is Welcome to People and the release date has apparently been set down for 29 June 2012 (I kid you not). The article also noted that it is not known if this will be a limited release only. I hope not. I want to see the movie. The movie is rated PG-13.

Please, Bob Orci. Can you confirm? Yes/No. Can you say if the movie gets a worldwide release? Yes/No. Thank you.

90. MJ - March 2, 2012

@89 “Welcome to the People” sounds like a nice little movie, but if they are really going to make the mistake of releasing it during the summer movie season, then all I have to say is: “Welcome to a 3rd place $8m opening weekeend.” :-)

91. Iva - March 2, 2012

The only one looking miserable and trembling, sounds like poor Zoe is just menstruating. Having to go to work sure sucks when that happens.

92. Richard Dawson's Ruffled Shirt - March 2, 2012


Dr. McCoy had a pill to grow that old lady a new kidney in Star Trek IV… he doesn’t have something for poor Zoe?

I keed, I keed.

93. David C - March 2, 2012

That’s not Noel Clarke.

94. Iva - March 2, 2012

Aren’t you in America having a campaign to forbid pills and other female-oriented medicine right now?

95. Iva - March 2, 2012

That one was for Ruffled Shirt, 92 :)

96. Iva - March 2, 2012

It’d be nice if this board had the edit post option.

97. Richard Dawson's Ruffled Shirt - March 2, 2012

I can see Hasbro hard at work right now on a special “Sneak Preview” Wave of their new “Star Trek” line…

1) James T. Kirk (Trenchcoat and Sunglasses)
2) Spock (Hoodie)
3) Scotty (Webcam)
4) Uhura (Disturbed)
5) Unnamed Bad Guy (Cumberbatch)
Golf Cart Action Vehicle

Paramount Backlot Playset

Comic-Con Exclusive: J.J. Abrams (Pissed)

98. THX-1138 - March 2, 2012


I guess proof reading your posts would be out of the question. But yes, you’re right.

99. Phil - March 2, 2012

@94. No. If you are looking for campaigns against women you need to look elsewhere in the world.

100. Dee - lvs moon' surface - March 2, 2012

#89. Keachick…

Well, there has been a lot of rumor about “Welcome to People” lately… but for sure there is that Mr. Orci’s comment on twitter about the film’s premiere in the summer… and at the end of last year had a comment from a girl who said she had seen the film in a “screening test” and that she thought the movie was very good… I hope we’ll see a trailer very soon… can’t wait!

;-) :-)

101. Keachick - rose pinenut - March 2, 2012

MJ – Welcome to People is seen by many as an Indie movie. I don’t know what the overall budget was/is, but I doubt it was anything like the big movies being made like Star Trek or TDKR.

It seems that people have not seen the coincidence of the rumoured release date – 29 June 2012. It was the original release date for the Star Trek sequel!

The release date has not turned up on WTP’s IMDb homepage yet, even though it was on IMDb where I read the article.

102. Paul_Tiguela - March 2, 2012

97 I Think you meant L.A. Public Property film shoot play set.
dont forget Evil Los Angeles resident with telephoto lens camera with extreme zoom

It would be one thing if the photos were taken on the paramount backlot, but they werent they were taken by a person who was on public property.

103. Walter Kozlowski - March 2, 2012

We all crave info on production, but I think all the unauthorized stuff will just make the powers- to- be, less willing to share.

104. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) - March 2, 2012


Here, here, MONGO. :-)

105. CarlG - March 2, 2012

@97: I’m not sold unless Hoodie Spock comes packaged with a black SUV (Spockmobile!) and his trusty sidekick, Curly-Bun-Hair McYellowShades!

106. OxyCoSaab - March 2, 2012

@8 My thoughts exactly.. and it looks like a goatee he is sporting too.

107. Iva - March 2, 2012

It would be great if they did a production vlog and posted videos online like Hobbit does. I have been re-watching the last 5 videos and following news with rapt attention.
If Jackson ever pulled a secrecy stunt like J.J. …. But then again, he doesn’t have to relay on tricking people into watching so no need for that.

108. CarlG - March 2, 2012

^ That should say “YOU guys want”. Stupid no-edit. *grumble*

109. danielcraigsmywookiebitchnow - March 2, 2012

The only way I would accept a khan reboot is if in his first scene he kills off Keenser( J.J. Treks answer to Jar Jar binks)

110. dmduncan - March 2, 2012

Chris Pine. His future’s so bright, he’s gotta wear shades…

111. dmduncan - March 2, 2012

I am so jealous. That TED Weyland talk promoting Prometheus was brilliant.

Why can’t WE Star Trek fans get a promo like that? Not just a bunch of trailers, but an extended promo that is NOT IN the movie…something along the lines of the Weyland talk?


Maybe THAT would be a great way to give us the Shatner scene.

Shatner does commercials, y’know?

And I promise JJ I won’t splice together my own version of ST.09 if he does it.

If Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof can put together something like that for freakin ALIEN fans — why can’t Lindelof, Abrams, Kurtzman and Orci do that for Star Trek fans?

And why not the Shatner scene?

I mean hey, I’m an Alien fan too, but I didn’t even ask for that TED treat…and I got it.

I’m ASKING for this. Don’t we rate it? Haven’t we been loyal fans long enough to get a little something extra?

Great Saturn’s Balls! Shoot a Shatner promo already. That would be another way of doing it other than getting him in the movie.

112. MJ - March 2, 2012

@107 “It would be great if they did a production vlog and posted videos online like Hobbit does. I have been re-watching the last 5 videos and following news with rapt attention. If Jackson ever pulled a secrecy stunt like J.J. …. But then again, he doesn’t have to relay on tricking people into watching so no need for that.”

Iva, I am shocked and amazed here that I find myself agreeing with you 100% Well said!

113. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) - March 2, 2012

Well, I don’t agree that he’s tricking anyone… Everyone has their own opinion, though.

114. Some dude - March 2, 2012

“Again no one appears to be wearing a costume from the film”

Umm… I’m pretty sure Quinto doesn’t typically walk around with pointy ears a modified Dutch-boy.

115. Hugh Hoyland - March 3, 2012

#111 dmduncan

That TED video rocked. Can’t wait for that movie either.

And agreed something like this would work great
For the sequel.

I have no doubt they could pull it off.

116. Richard Dawson's Ruffled Shirt - March 3, 2012

You people are all under the assumption that JJ Abrams OWES you something.

HE DOES NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This arrogance makes me sick.

All you are “owed” by a motion picture director is a motion picture. All these video blogs and viral campaigns and whatnot that other studios come up with, they’re not from the director. If you want to bitch and piss and moan (and it’s abundant that a lot of you do), then aim it all at the publicity departments that are responsible for spearheading these things.

There… I’ve pissed enough people off for now.

117. dmduncan - March 3, 2012

116: “If you want to bitch and piss and moan (and it’s abundant that a lot of you do)”

Clearly true. See post 116, for example.

118. Vultan - March 3, 2012


Shatner doing videos/commercials for the new Trek movie…?
I like that idea!

119. NCM - March 3, 2012

116. Richard Dawson’s Ruffled Shirt – March 3, 2012

“There… I’ve pissed enough people off for now.”

Could be wrong, but I don’t think the admonishment’s likely to piss anyone off [how arrogant;]. To stir the pot, you’ll probably need to take a shot at a fictional character.

120. MJ - March 3, 2012

@116 “You people are all under the assumption that JJ Abrams OWES you something. HE DOES NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

He does owe us something. You need to take Marketing 101, my young friend. We are “the market” for Paramount’s and JJ’s Trek movie. They are selling us, the customers, a product. If the product is poor, then less of us will be repeat buyers and the DVD/blu-ray sells with suffer — that will be direct feedback from “the customer” (us) to “the product developer (Paramount). And if the product suffers, the look to the company making the product to overhaul its product….e.g. bring someone else in to direct the next Trek Movie.

So yea, you damn right that JJ owes us a good product, or it will effect him the studio directly.

121. OMNI - March 3, 2012

Abrams is getting ready to hatch a real turkey here. Let’s all watch him fail again! Quick, Scotty, back to the brewery!!!

122. MJ - March 3, 2012

@121. You mean like when OMNI magazine failed? Where is your precious OMNI magazine today? LOL

123. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) - March 3, 2012

To be fair, I don’t think that Richard Dawson’s Ruffled Shirt was talking about the movie. He said we were owed a movie, and I’d guess he meant a quality movie. He was saying that we’re not owed ” video blogs and viral campaigns and whatnot.”

Personally, I don’t have much of a strong opinion either way on that, although I’d of course welcome those things if JJ and company did them. My main thing is dvd extras. I’m still hoping for the behind the scenes feature hosted by perhaps JJ or some or all of the cast, a pre-production/production/post production special done by JJ, cast interviews, and whatever else he’d like to do.

Earlier I mentioned seeing Zach and Leonard interviewing each other and seeing the differences and similarities of their characters. They could expand that and have a dvd special that does that with all if the main cast. For the ones that have passed away, perhaps a child of the person or one of the writers/workers that knew the person and their character well could do it. I don’t know; it’s just a thought. I think it would be nice. It would alsi reiterate the difference between Alternate and Prime timelines.

124. TrekMadeMeFat - March 3, 2012

We are but a teeny, tiny portion of the overall audience for Star Trek. When the “True Star Wars Fans” launched their massive boycott of the Star Wars blu-ray set, the product developer was relieved. They wanted the “True Star Wars Fans” to know what their numbers truly are.

Trekkies also radically, radically overestimate their true numbers.

125. Anthony Thompson - March 3, 2012

111. dmduncan

Shatner doing a promo for the sequel? That’s a BRILLIANT idea, homeboy! A promo from someone who hasn’t even seen the first one! LOL.

126. Jack - March 4, 2012

No making-of video blogs please — there’s enough buzz already.

127. thebiggfrogg - March 4, 2012

Golf carts=the new shuttlecraft (Trek ’13)
brewery=new engineering section (Trek ’09)

Why golf carts? They provide that gritty, lived-in look.

128. Daoud - March 4, 2012

Well, the 1701-JJ is so huge, that having golf carts to get across most of the decks could be really handy. And more efficient that turboshafts and turbolifts. Uh-oh, this means Star Trek V actually took place in the alt universe! That explains 85 decks in the turboshaft quite well!!!!!

“A promo from someone who hasn’t even seen the first one! LOL.”


Pffft! Like that actually matters in the real world. Now Shatner can’t be allowed to play Kirk again unless he sees ST.09, because it offends some silly fanboy. Now THAT is comedy.

OMG this photo is a clear evidence that the villain will be Khan!

“You people are all under the assumption that JJ Abrams OWES you something. HE DOES NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

The only debt JJ has to us is the fact “Star Trek” still exists because of a massive multi-generational fanbase (us) which has grown the franchise, and that he has had the chance to break out as an acclaimed action director on the back of that franchise.

Some may feel that his first “Trek” film is lacking. I am not part of that group. JJ does not now “owe” me something better because the last one was not to my liking.

“Star Trek” owes its existence to the fans, for sure, and I have confidence that Abrams is putting 110% into making the best film he can make. He owes it to himself to do that every day he comes to work, and I will happily owe my local cinema the price of a ticket on opening day, a debt I intend to cover immediately.

132. dmduncan - March 4, 2012

Look, if you can’t put Shatner in the movie and if the Shatner scene is never gonna happen, I think the awesome TED Weyland speech points out a new direction of how you can do something really cool for the fans with William Shatner, because all of a sudden you don’t have to worry about artificially making him a part of the sequel’s plot when it doesn’t fit.

Bob can do it. He can come up with something. Right Bob? ;-)

133. MJ - March 4, 2012

OMG, the topic is how to bring back Shat “AGAIN” folks????? This is nearly as bad as the Republicans tying to bring up birth control as an issue again after 45 years. LOL

RIP — idea of bring back Shat for NuTrek. Enough!!!!!

134. Daoud - March 5, 2012

MJ: no politics, please.
I’m asking nicely, because if we want to talk about Shatner and Nimoy being in the limousine that Quinto is standing outside of, we perfectly can talk about that.
So, I still keep looking at those pictures, and I just don’t see spots on Chris Pine. If he’s spotted, wouldn’t it show up more clearly?

135. john in md - March 5, 2012

Interesting – it seems to me some of them are i fact in costume. Pine’s coat has cuff sleeves, just like a modern Army officer. Clark’s wide neck vest and turtle neck aren reminiscent of TOS Klingons….just sayin’…

136. Keachick - rose pinenut - March 5, 2012

They are just wearing their everyday clothes and these have nothing to do with the characters they are playing. No doubt they have been told to wear their own coats etc and/or the rain coat thingy over any costume they MIGHT be wearing underneath, so that a stray photo won’t reveal anything. I think you’ll find that is Pine’s own coat. I seem to recall seeing a photo of him wearing something similar a while back at some event/premiere – Bottle Shock(?) which wasn’t remotely connected to Star Trek.

Sometimes I’m not sure whether to take some of these posts seriously or not…

SoCal weather update. Warm yesterday/today, high 70’s, low 80’s F. Tomorrow, it will only hit the mid 60″s F

#136. Keachick…

CP seems to be wearing the same coat he used in London for the premiere of This Means War ..

Just look at the link below:

Dress warmly, Phil. I hear there’s an antibiotic resistant strain of goosebumps going around.

141. Keachick - rose pinenut - March 5, 2012

My goodness. Mid 60″s F is between 15.5″C and 20″C. That’s a bit on the cool side, but if I wore a thick coat like what Chris was wearing I would start overheating rather quickly. A common and pleasant Auckland temperature is often about 18″C or 64.4″ F at this time as we get near the end of summer and officially go into Autumn (Fall) at the end of March.

Unfortunately Karl Urban was not in any of those photos. I wonder what he would have been wearing…hmmm. I think that Chris and Zoe were feeling the cold a bit more than the others for some reason.

Thanks Dee. Yes, that does look like the coat. I know I have seen Chris wearing the same or similar coat in other pictures. Has that mole next to Chris’s right(?) ear changed colouration? I’m sure it looked smaller and darker or have I got it wrong? I hope/assume all is OK?

142. Red Dead Ryan - March 5, 2012

Where I live, in Victoria, Canada, it was about 7C during the day. Raining early in morning, clearing up nicely in the afternoon. Right now as I speak, its 1C and lightly snowing. But it shouldn’t last, as its going to be sunny and around 7C tomorrow and 10C on Wednesday.

Anyway, I thought it was always summer in Southern California? :-D

143. Keachick - rose pinenut - March 5, 2012

#142 Now that’s what I would call cold…

144. Jack - March 5, 2012

Come to -22C Alberta (alhough this year’s been crazy warm — -10C or so, even around zero somedays, when people wear shorts). ;).

145. Keachick - rose pinenut - March 5, 2012

#144 – Are you kidding or do people actually wear shorts when it is zero degress? I don’t know. I have seen films of people in Russia and Finland strip naked and jump into icy glacial pools or similar, where the temperatures are around zero or lower and there is a lot of ice and snow…

146. Phil - March 6, 2012

@140. Oh, the humanity…when will this hellish weather ever end.. :-)

#145. Keachick Hey…

did you see the hottest photos leaked involving Captain Fine and a certain OMudd? … Do not worry, I will not put the link here … LOL … very hot topic … I wonder what was the comment on the set of Trek sequel about it? …+LOL

;-) :-)

150. Red Dead Ryan - March 6, 2012


Believe it or not, Victoria is the mildest part of Canada. Right by the pacific, which brings up warm air from the tropics. Some nasty rainstorms in the late fall and winter, but also long hot summers!

I was wasn’t wearing a coat this morning when it was 4C. It was sunny. Which definitely helps.

151. Phil - March 7, 2012

@147. Was in Hollywood Sunday. Over 80 (F) there….I don’t mind visiting the snow, though…

152. sunfell - March 7, 2012

I loves me some Spock in a hoodie. Could HipsterSpock be next?


153. Keachick - rose pinenut - March 7, 2012

#149 – No, I have not seen any “hot” pictures but I have read the texts that “she who shall not be named” was supposed to have sent Chris. Holy Moly. If you had posted the link here, Anthony would not have been pleased.

Just google Chris Pine and there is a news item mentioning leaked texts with pictures from OM to Chris… for anyone who might be curious.

154. captain spock - March 8, 2012
if you look closey at the shoulder of zoe saldana uniform she wearing has a red stripe & John cho has a white stripe. boy JJ is going to have kittens over these pictures.

155. Keachick - rose pinenut - March 8, 2012

I doubt that JJ will have kittens over these pictures, because they show so little. I think it is more about “Let’s keep ’em guessing”.

156. captain spock - March 8, 2012

maybe JJ will not have kittens over these pictures put they are not the usal star fleet uniforms the normaly have on when filming trek . they could be the dress uniforms,

157. Dee - lvs moon' surface - March 8, 2012

At least Zoe looks to be in a better mood…. ;-) :-)

158. Harry Ballz - March 9, 2012

To Bob Orci regarding Hawaii Five O:

Good show. Mentioned months ago for you to get rid of Lauren German. She has now left the show. Glad she’s gone.

Next, please get rid of Masi Oka. He’s friggin’ hopeless. Can’t act worth shit. He really brings the show down. Kill his character off during sweeps week.

Also, the recent episode with James Caan. Enjoyed his appearance, but everyone on the show had their tongue so firmly planted in their cheek, grinning madly at his presence, it broke the thread of believabilty.

159. Nick - March 9, 2012

I can’t tell if that Quinto’s sweat shirt is a zip up or pullover(Is that a hoodie lace hanging down?) I would think that Quinto pulling off that sweatshirt over his head would risk damaging the prosthetic ears.

161. S. Sarge - March 13, 2012

I am a Gaffer (I do lighting on the sets of the new Star Trek film). Just thought I’d let all you know that most of what you are seeing here is rehearsals and goofing off, not actual takes. The electric carts are what the actors use to go back and forth to their trailers (we use them too). The buget for this film is way bigger than the last film and they are rehearsing and filming some of those rehearsals because they are trying out different digital filming techniques and also giving the actors more time to prepare and test dialogue. They often do this in comfortable street clothes like Zachary Quinto is wearing. The comments here about what they think is happening is WAY OFF, trust me!

162. James - March 14, 2012

@ S.Sarge, so please settle this for us once and for all please. Is Khan the main villain or not? Thanks

163. Gordon Holmes - March 14, 2012

I don’t trust thr gaffer. It’s obvious that the new shuttle is the golf cart. It even runs on electricity, which is green, and Spock in the hoodie? It was just a matter of time until he finally rebelled. We know that chicks like bad boys. Look out, here comes SPOCK with ‘tude. The rebel without a car

164. john in md - March 14, 2012

Gaffer sounds like an evil studio plant sent to throw us off because we’re too close to the truth ;)

165. Gordon NCC-1701 - March 14, 2012

Yup. Once more ”The Man”, istrying to throw us off the scent. Long live the Maquis. :)

166. TREK NUT - March 15, 2012

Spocks shuttle looks to much like a Ford Taurus.

167. Keachick - rose pinenut (F) - March 16, 2012

Yes, well, I think the shuttle crafts do have such a clunky design, so it is good that improvements have been made…:)

So Quinto has dropped the Prius and is buying American. Is Ford still an American car? I get so confused these days…

168. CJ - March 19, 2012

Ah, these pictures make everything is so clear! We can obviously tell that Benedict Cumberbatch and Noel Clarke will play a Romulans with the premise of the film being that the Romulans will invite the remaining Vulcans to join their society while secretly planning to destroy the humans. Not original but, hey, it will provide the opportunity of a bit of Spock/Kirk tension as Kirk uses his ‘human intutition’ to tell Spock that he doesn’t trust them. When we eventually discover that Kirk is correct then this will build the Spock/Kirk trust-relationshipship and, perhaps, result in Spock having to choose to remain with Starfleet as the rest of the Vulcans go to Romulus…ah, the angst!
All that from a golfcart laden with actors…not bad, eh?!

169. Keachick - rose pinenut (F) - March 19, 2012

#169 – Not bad at all!
