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.

Thanks to TrekNews.de for finding these new photos
Marvelous and doesn’t Chris Pin e look the business as Kirk or what?
Makes my blood boil.
Looks like the Kelvin. Hope we get another starship crash.
It says 1701, on that escape pod? Mini-shuttle? Barrell thing…
A disaster which is to be averted by an older Spock perhapse?
LOL – I forgot about that Star Track news clip. Moronic news reporter.
What is that thing? A wampa?
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.
maybe Kirk lands on Hoth
Oooh, does Kirk wrestle a Mugato?
no, it’s obvious he lands in SASQUATCHawan!
(sorry, slow news day…)
I hope Abrams isn’t taking a page from “Empire” with this scene. Hope it’s an original creature.
What’s Kirk doing in the Fortress of Solitude?
Will Kirk make a Hoth referance??
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 :) ]
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.
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.
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.
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….
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!!!!
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
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!
That news guy is soooo irritating
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!
Did that guy call the Enterprise the “Star TRACK Enterprise”?
It’s a starSHIP, not a Star TRACK.
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”
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.”
Star Trek 11, The Wrath Of Nemesis?

I noticed the exact same thing — Yesterday’s issue has a “The Photo Issue” cover story. WTF?! Where’s my Star Track?!
so easy to get whats going on if you just let yourself think!!!!!!!!! very cool,,,,, put all of it together now!!!!!!easy,,,,going to be a good movie
It’s either an escape pod or a torpedo. Is there enough room in a torpedo for a person to lay in?
#40 – ask Spock!!
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.
It’s a teeny tiny shuttle.
My favorite part about Star Track is when they kill Dark Vader.
#40 Spock was buried/fired in one about the same size.
#45, isn’t it Darth Tater? ( http://tinyurl.com/2qdelw )
#37, I love it – Where’s my Star Track?
#43: I’m pretty sure torpedoes had “NCC-1701” all over them in STII & VI. I could be wrong though.

“#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?
