And once again there are some spy shots from the Star Trek sequel set floating around the Interwebs. This time no actors were spotted, but the set dressing for the location is interesting. Check them out below, with spoilers.


Star Trek visits red plants planet

More photos have emerged from the Star Trek sequel shooting in the Los Angeles area. This time there are no actors that can be seen, but you can see that they have created some kind of alien locale with red plants. The report from On Location Vacations notes that these shots are related to previously reported scene with Spock hovering over a volcano. More shots also appear at Entertainmentwise

1. Legend of Link - April 28, 2012

Reeeed Plants. First? They look deadly

2. Borgminister - April 28, 2012


3. MJ - April 28, 2012

I told you all it was Khan! See!

4. Jackson Lake - April 28, 2012

Expendable leaves. Red plants gonna die!

5. captainkirk - April 28, 2012

What do red leaves have to do with Khan?

6. I, Mugsy - April 28, 2012

It’d better not be Khan – do something original and NEW for Gawd’s sakes!

7. I, Mugsy - April 28, 2012

P.S. yeah… why do red leaves = Khan?!! Haha!

8. Mantastic - April 28, 2012

The movie has red plants in it?

Movie officially spoiled.

9. CJS - April 28, 2012

They are reimagined versions of the pod plants from This Side of Paradise and Alice Eve is playing Leila Kalomi. (Somebody had to say it.)

10. Spock/Uhura Admirer ;-) - April 28, 2012

Ms. Eve can be Leila just as long as those spores have her looking in another direction and staying far, far away from Spock, who will be with his true love – Uhura. ;-)

11. NCC-73515 - April 28, 2012

That’s where red matter comes from? XD

12. Alf, in pog form - April 28, 2012

It’s the Mound Creatures of the planet Tarp, and they are being attacked by their mortal enemy the Panaflex Boom Mantis.

13. Bird Of Prey - April 28, 2012

Wow, they seem to aim for a TOS-ish flair here!

14. Chain of Command - April 28, 2012

wow.. plants. Exciting! LOL

15. Craiger - April 28, 2012

That looks like the Man Trap planet.

16. Trekker5 - April 28, 2012

Looks like it might be under water or something,looks exciting! :)

17. The Sky's The Limit - April 28, 2012

Vulcan Cannibas! Break out the munchies!

Where’s Harry when you need him? :)

18. CmdrR - April 28, 2012

Red Bamboo… So, I guess the park rangers didn’t stop em from spray painting, like they did during the filming of “Shore Leave.”



19. Spoctor McKirk - April 28, 2012

@ 12…Alf made me spit milk on my keyboard!

20. ster julie - April 28, 2012

18. Bamboo? Really? Try again. Banboo leaves are long and pointy. Whatever it’s supposed to be, it definitely tells us this ain’t Earth, folks.

21. dmduncan - April 28, 2012

Absolutely not bamboo. They look like aspen trees with red leaves. Looks like they’re sitting on wooden platforms, so no doubt artificial.

22. NCC-73515 - April 28, 2012

16 …not because of the blue screen, right? XD

23. T'Cal - April 28, 2012

This is where the dye for the red shirts comes from.

24. Phil - April 28, 2012

Not sure how red plants means Khan. Then again, for the true believers blue plants would mean Khan, too. Or any plants for that matter.

On the other hand, there has been a bit of commentary of late on how important foreign box office is now-a-days for a film to be considered successful. Considering that Trek is weak overseas (so is sci-fi in general), that by itself should put to rest any rumors that this movie is a remake of any of the previous Trek movies. What would make more sense with all the secrecy is that there is a unannounced cast member on board with a high enough profile globally that they don’t want it known that he/she is connected to the project just yet. Just my opinion here….

25. Nony - April 28, 2012

I think I see Shatner hiding in there.

26. izmunuti - April 28, 2012

It’s the Kelvans! Red plants were in “By Any Other Name” (the one where the the Kelvan leader crushes the cube/person in his hand).

27. I'm Dead Jim! - April 28, 2012

Ok… so it’s Fall somewhere in the galaxy. LOL

28. MJ - April 28, 2012

For those of you commenting on my ” see,it’s Khan” post here, IT WAS A JOKE, people. LOL

Even more funny than my post though is the guy here who said the leaves were Vulcan cannibus. LOL

29. Khan was Framed! - April 28, 2012

No MJ…it totally is Khan.

As funny as that was, it’s Khan.

30. Dr. Cheis - April 28, 2012

Those plants look awfully plain. I bet they’ll be enhanced with CG, and they’re mostly monochrome to make it easier to scan them in.

31. Azrael - April 29, 2012

Anybody notice that those don’t look like Jungle plants? This indicates to me that the crew will visit at least 2 planets besides Earth. Just a thought.

Oh, and MJ, I got it. lol

32. DavidR - April 29, 2012

The red weed. Star Trek meets The War of the Worlds…

33. Christopher Roberts - April 29, 2012

No actors were spotted…

…aside from those, slap bang in the middle of the red forest, playing Vulcans in yellow hoods.

34. Steve D - April 29, 2012

Trekweb has these photos 7 days ago

35. Steve D - April 29, 2012

Wow now THATs what I call a Scoop!

36. section9 - April 29, 2012

Hmmmm. Those plants remind me of the noisemakers that young Spock stilled when he touched them. He showed them to Boyce in The Cage.

37. DS9 IN PRIME TIME - April 29, 2012

When will there be an official trailor??

38. Walter Kozlowski - April 29, 2012

Super-Bowl Sunday.

39. La Reyne d'Epee - April 29, 2012

You show us plants sprayed red, Trekweb.

Meanwhile, other sites have pap pics of Kirk and Spock in tight-fitting trousers.

I am disappoint, Trekweb.


40. La Reyne d'Epee - April 29, 2012

Er, it’s late…Trekmovie. *whoops*

41. Peter Loader - April 29, 2012

Its the same location as the fight scene with Spock, Uhura and Cumberbatch. Just after Cumberbatch jumps from the hover train, on the planet that’s been affected by the Red Matter blight.

42. Azrael - April 29, 2012

With filming close to ending I would guess there will be a teaser trailer soon, possibly attached to The Avengers, but I am most definitely guessing and have no idea at all really.

43. MC1 Doug - April 30, 2012

I cannot bear to look at these photos. They’ve given the entire plot away!

44. Keachick - rose pinenut - April 30, 2012

I can see from my lounge windows a large tree with red coloured leaves looking just like the larger version of these shrubs in the photos. I don’t know what the tree is called. It is autumn (fall) here… Interesting to say the least.
