First Look at a 'Star Trek 2' Klingon

So, we've been told the rumor Benedict Cumberbatch's villain is Khan is false, but with that rumor also came word the Klingons would be involved in Star Trek 2 (aka the Untitled Star Trek Sequel) and it would appear that rumor is indeed true as director J.J. Abrams teased the above image during last night's MTV Movie Awards (see right). Yes, the image above (cropped from the image at the bottom of this post) is your first look at a Klingon from the new film.

The pic comes via TrekMovie who first spotted the tease and supplied the screen grab you see above and at the bottom of this post. Over at HitFix they are confirming the grab is indeed from Star Trek 2 where their studio contact also notes "the image wasn't included in the clip by accident."

The TrekMovie report also includes a reminder that Klingons were featured in the deleted scenes on the Blu-ray for the first Star Trek wearing helmets such as you see below. It would appear Abrams is keeping with the tradition, but I have to assume he will also deliver some sort of fancy reveal of their entire head.

I guess we'll only know the full story once a trailer for the film hits or we'll have to just wait until Star Trek 2 hits theaters on May 17, 2013.
