‘New’ Star Trek Location Photos Discovered

Back in February we reported when a local traffic helicopter flew over location shooting for the Star Trek movie, which was followed up soon after by some paparazzi photos. Apparently there were more photos from that shoot online since February, but were only just discovered by a German Trek site, and it looks like these are all related to one of the new official images released by Paramount

 

The ‘new’ photos are at OnLocationNews.com and there is a set of ten photos. There isn’t much new info there, but some different angle, except you can see Chris Pine at the location (TrekMovie reported he was there, but there were no images seen of him until now). There is also some kind of cut-out for a creature (likely to be put in with CGI). OnLocationNews charges for full size images, but you can look at thumbnails and watermarked images at the site.

The images and video from last February show an icy location with Kirk (Chris Pine). Just this week Paramount officially released an image of Kirk (Chris Pine) climbing out of some kind of pod in an icy location.

Marvelous and doesn’t Chris Pin e look the business as Kirk or what?

Jordan

“Star Track”

Makes my blood boil.

braxus

Interesting.

Michael Adams

Looks like the Kelvin. Hope we get another starship crash.

Paul-Fitz

It says 1701, on that escape pod? Mini-shuttle? Barrell thing…

A disaster which is to be averted by an older Spock perhapse?

Hector

LOL – I forgot about that Star Track news clip. Moronic news reporter.

mm3guy

Photolicious!

What is that thing? A wampa?

Capt Mike From the Terran Empire

Hey that looks so Kool. (No pun intended)this should be a fantastic and great Adventure. The Escape pod looks kool and I can’t wait to see why it was launched.

Is it’s possible his “track” pronunciation is really just because of an accent?

And what the HELL is this? :D

Like I said, a wampa, I guess.

Canonfornication

ice planet

falling pods

big creatures

maybe Kirk lands on Hoth

Enterprise

Oooh, does Kirk wrestle a Mugato?

Jorg Sacul

no, it’s obvious he lands in SASQUATCHawan!

(sorry, slow news day…)

Steven

I hope Abrams isn’t taking a page from “Empire” with this scene. Hope it’s an original creature.

Mugatu rocks!!!

navamske

What’s Kirk doing in the Fortress of Solitude?

Pirate Palin - Plunder your Oil

Will Kirk make a Hoth referance??

The TOS Purist aka The Purolator

What I want to know is – what are those snowball things with the wiry legs sticking out of them? “Snowball-Spiders?” Check the 7th picture to see what I mean…

[FYI TrekMovie…there are ten pictures total, not eight :) ]

Kirk's Girdle

It’s a one-man pod and Kirk has a big pack on his back, so it looks like he is on a specific mission there.

Kirk's Girdle

Oh yeah, that cutout can’t be good.

#10- No its not an accent. I live in L.A. and avoid Fox 11 at all costs. It is the most uninformed news station in the area. Very “lowest common denominator” sort of station. Caters to the sort of people who don’t read and so can’t tell the difference between track and trek.

Dave

Impressive…….most impressive

Tim Lade

clearly an escape pod.

What is that thing? A wampa?”

Where’s a lightsaber when you need one?

Too bad they opted for a redressed California location rather than Iceland where they were reportedly considering. Star Trek has yet to do a location shoot outside the state of California — with the exception of a brief long-distance scene filmed on a glacier in Alaska for Trek 6 using stand-ins for Kirk, McCoy and Martia.

Third Remata'Klan

Aw, the cutout doesn’t NECESSARILY mean anything.

Maybe they want us to THINK it’s a wampa….

They’re throwing us off the scent!

Or, yeah, maybe J.J. really IS getting is Star Wars freak on….

MORN SPEAKS

I’m sooo stoked that Trek is going to be a little more like Star Wars. Yet, I only mean that in the grandness and epic scale of it. Trek never really needed any sort of treatment like that because the stories were always so great, BUT to see cool space battles (i.e. DS), space monsters, big name actors, and big promotions make me giddy with joy!!!!

Canonfornication

i hope there will be a couple of Star Wars references in the movie

maybe even a Harrison Ford cameo as an Admiral or a star wars alien or a line reference

MORN SPEAKS

I meant to put DS9 in parenthesis, and while I’m on it, it’ll be cool not to see so much stock footage from other awesome battles!

shat hands

That news guy is soooo irritating

Jim Nightshade

Does anyone know when that Entertainment Weekly with Star TRACK on it hahah will be in the stores…I just rushed to the stores and a magazine with yesterdays friday date on it is not it must be the previous weeks so when does NEXT weeks with star trek on it go on sale darnit!

THX-1138

Did that guy call the Enterprise the “Star TRACK Enterprise”?

It’s a starSHIP, not a Star TRACK.

Enterprise

Kirk and Superman team up in the movie.

Kal-El: “I am Kal-El! Superman! What business do you have in my fortress…my fortess of..solitude?”

Kirk: “Carl? Let’s get one thing straight. You are an alien on my home planet. Face it , dude. I’m gonna bring you down!”

Kal-El: “You will do no such thing! I grew up in Kansas! I am the son of Jor-El!

Spock: “If we channel our phasers through this green rock from Krypton, the hostile should be quite adequately, shall we say….neutralized.”

Kirk (yawn): “Fire phasers”

Superman dies.

McCoy: “God, I feel terrible.”

Kirk: “Bones? F*ck Superman.” Dump his body, write a report, and let’s go on to our next mission.”

Illogical

Star Trek 11, The Wrath Of Nemesis?

pat

LOL. :D

Kyle Nin

It’s either an escape pod or a torpedo. Is there enough room in a torpedo for a person to lay in?

Boulderdash

#40 – ask Spock!!

Enterprise

Or Worf’s girlfriend.

“It’s either an escape pod or a torpedo. Is there enough room in a torpedo for a person to lay in?”

My guess is it’s an Enterprise escape pod. Doesn’t make any sense to print “NCC-1701” on a photo torpedo tube.

Enterprise

It’s a teeny tiny shuttle.

My favorite part about Star Track is when they kill Dark Vader.

ThePhaige

#40 Spock was buried/fired in one about the same size.

Mark

#45, isn’t it Darth Tater? ( http://tinyurl.com/2qdelw )

#37, I love it – Where’s my Star Track?

Wastedbeerz

#43: I’m pretty sure torpedoes had “NCC-1701” all over them in STII & VI. I could be wrong though.

48. Wastedbeerz –
“#43: I’m pretty sure torpedoes had “NCC-1701″ all over them in STII & VI. I could be wrong though.”

They sometimes had a model number on them (like “Mark IV”) but nothing stating their place of origin. Would that make any sense? Does the navy paint the name of its’ vessels on each and every cannon shell?
