Damn Spock and his rationality.
We already knew that Star Trek Into Darkness, J.J. Abrams’ sequel to his 2009 franchise reboot, is going to be, well, much darker than its predecessor, but damn does this first official clip from the film drive that point home. It’s been suggested that maybe all of your favorite crew members from the Enterprise may not make it out alive, and things definitely look grim for these particular members of Starfleet.
Not only are the majority of them hiding far beneath the surface of the ocean—it looks like they’ve been doing some scuba diving as well in those skin tight body suits—but one of them, Spock (Zachary Quinto) is grave danger. We finally get to see real life footage of the Vulcan first officer in the mouth of that lava-spewing volcano we’ve only seen glimpses of up to now.
