At first, it seemed to be just a big joke put on by the director, who said in the skit that he had to remove a Klingon sub-plot in Star Trek 2 because he didn't want to work with this incompetent archery coach. Studio sources confirmed that the image was placed there on purpose, as a way to tease the alien's design. Ironically, the filmmaker actually did cut a Klingon sub-plot out of his 2009 blockbuster Star Trek, which fans can watch in deleted scenes on the Blu-ray and DVD.
Star Trek Into Darkness was released May 17th, 2013 and stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Benedict Cumberbatch, Anton Yelchin. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams.
