Klingons Finally Unmasked in New 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Promos
We've already seen a couple promos for Star Trek Into Darkness featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as villain John Harrison, dissecting the characters of James T. Kirk and Spock, and now it's time for someone else to get the spotlight. This time it's Uhura (Zoe Saldana) under Harrison's microscope, but there's more than just menacing voiceover. There's also a brief appearance of Klingons. And while we've seen some images of them with their masks/helmets, this is the first time we see them without obstruction. It remains to be seen if the ridges will vary character to character like the TV series or if all the Klingons have similar facial features. Either way, the promo and two new TV spots are just fuel for our excitement. Watch below!

In addition, here's two more new TV spots for J.J. Abrams' summer sci-fi sequel to feast upon:
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated everything the fleet stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a "one man weapon of mass destruction."
Star Trek Into Darkness is the sequel to the J.J. Abrams-directed reboot of Gene Roddenberry's original science fiction series. The screenplay this time was co-written by Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman & Damon Lindelof. Most of the crew is back, including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin & John Cho. Paramount is bringing Into Darkness to theaters May 17th this summer.
