New Star Trek Sequel Behind Scenes Photos – Do Vulcans Sneeze?

A few more photos from behind the scenes on a location shoot for the Star Trek sequel have shown up online, featuring Zachary Quinto in Spock make-up, featuring the actor having a moment and answer the question: What does it look like when a Vulcan sneezes. Quinto is also wearing what could be another uniform variant, check it out below. 


Quinto sneezes in possible uniform variant from Star Trek sequel shoot

The latest images from the Star Trek sequel location shooting come from X-17 agency via The Daily Mail) and they feature Zachary Quinto in full Spock makeup, sneezing while behind the scenes.  

Do Vulcans sneeze?

Quinto is wearing the standard undershirt for the Starfleet uniform, which is the same shirt Kirk wore for most of the 2009 Star Trek movie. It could be that he just hasn’t put on his blue science tunic over this shirt or he will appear without it at some point in the film. He is also pictured wearing grey trousers which are different than the standard dark grey/black uniform pants. It is possible this combo is a uniform variant for Spock in the 2013 sequel, or perhaps he was just half dressed.

Nice pants

See. I told you all. It is Khan!


Well, it’s obvious now.
You were right. I was wrong. [sigh]

It looks like Quinto is wearing his own pants and shoes. His pants look like suit pants, and the shoes look like dress shoes. Could be wrong though.

Those are Men’s Warehouse pants! You’re gonna like the way this movie looks, I guarantee it!

There are pics of Chris Pine using the same shirt/trousers combination. I think it’s a full set of uniforms.

Obviously, Khan.

Also, it could be that they are filming a camping scene in an RV park. Spock, Kirk, and McCoy are going to sit around the barbeque wearing a mix of Starfleet and civilian clothing singing “Row, Row, Row Your Boat…” while enjoying some beans ‘n’ bourbon.

After defeating Khan, of course. :-)

@6. And marsh-mellons too, I hope! ;)

Yes, I see it now; there was a lot of spoilers in that sneeze. And those gray pants. Why yes… it could ONLY be Khan! ;-D

Who is the woman with the tail? Is (a much older for some reason) M’ress in this one?

(oh – KIDDING.)


That’s a dog beside her.

can u say KHAN

Man, he really does look like a young Nimoy in that picture.

Instead of wearing a possible uniform variant, maybe they were just shooting Quinto from the waist up and didn’t need a full costume change? Just a guess.

But I can’t imagine Quinto voluntarily wearing those pants himself… ;-D

And yes, William. The resemblance is downright uncanny.

Damn, it is Khan. Uncanny.

Like #5 said there are more pics from this same day and Chris Pine is wearing the same style pants as Quinto.

You’re right; I forgot that Pine was seen wearing these same trousers. My guess is it’s part of some new dress uniform….



She is. But, that is an actor portraying a member of a caninoid species that was involved in a long interplanetary war with the Caitians. It is also going to be a crewman on the bridge.

There will be considerable tension, for dramatic purposes, between the two.



So what you’re saying is, the next movie is going to the dogs?

Wait, Vulcans sneeze? I’d pay to hear the Vulcans give a logical explanation for that!


Could just be him doing an awful De Niro impression.


@25. Fake.

Photographer probably missed 5 details that would have spoiled elements of the film, just so he could get Spock sneezing.

I approve.

I’m glad we’ve turned the Khan thing into a joke. The first few posts made me laugh.

@26 The Snob:

wh… what is that?!?! Is that real…? If it isn’t you or whomever did a great job on it…!

26 you might want to photoshop out spyglass logo from the poster, since the company doesnt exsist anymore after being folded into MGM

Pon farr orgasm face !

I know that face.

It’s the “I left the house this morning but I forget to switch the iron off” face.

Who cares about plot spoilers.
Or Khan.
Or adherence to classic physics.
We need to know what the trousers look like.

Actually if you watch the commentary of the 2009 film with JJ they mention that they almost put the Botany Bay at the end of the film. Pretty sure it’s Khan.

It’s not Khan, it’s Garth! Actually Capt. Garth revisioned in a Khan sense. Kirk and crew have to take on a more experienced Starfleet crew gone rogue.

It’s not the tribble fur; it’s that frakkin’ dander.

Why do you guys keep grabbing any clue and calling it Khan?

What, engineering is in a Bud plant, so now the Botany Bay is a Winnebago?

How do you work out it is Khan from these pics?

On another board someone called him ‘Zachary Squinto’ in reference to these pics. Made me chuckle. :-)

Are those pants Gucci? Yves Saint-Laurent? standard Wal-Mart issue?

You guys are really making me laugh today!! :D That goes double for #29,Dr.Cheis,#34,Christopher Roberts,and #38,CmdrR!! :) And #26,Snob,that’s an awesome poster!! :) The fact that Spock could be ‘half dressed’ in this movie excites me!! :)

@26 The Snob

Clicked your link and was confronted with the last thing I expected. Most excellent!

…and yes, the picture leaked from the set in the link below proves it’s going to be Khan….

The one link between all these leaked photos is that they all have featured Quinto. I wonder if one of his companions or reps is doing this?

#43 & 45: thanks.

Here’s an updated version with a few minor tweeks…

cumberpatch needs to work out to be khan.

I like the uniform variations- it makes more sense to have such things. The subdued delta shield on his shirt is especially interesting- real military units do that as well.

Really looking forward to the movie. And if I’m reading Zach’s tweets correctly, he’s about done.

45 – LOL. Nice.
