A new set picture from J J Abrams’s Star Trek 2 has surfaced today, and it once again features Zachary Quinto’s Spock. This time, he is in some sort of spacesuit hanging from some sort of harness. See below the picture for an explanation
According to On Location via MTV Movie Blog the picture shows –
Zachary Quinto as Spok filming an action scene for the Untitled Star Trek 2 Sequel. After first rehearsing the scene with a Spok Stunt Double Actor Zachary Quinto was then rigged to a wire in front of a large green screen and lifted to a height of 10 stories high then dropped at a high rate of speed as if he was falling. In the scene Spok is wearing a “Volcano Suit” and carrying an unknown piece of equipment with the Starfleet Emblem. A Volcano is somehow involved in this scene. The crew had a real fire burning off camera to catch the fire reflections on Spok’s “Volcano Suit”.
(Please note, the misspelling of Spock’s name is On Location’s error.)
So how does this fit into the film’s top secret plot? We’ll find out May 17, 2013 when the currently untitled Star Trek sequel hits theaters.
