'Star Trek 2' Photo Teases Klingon Warrior

Director J.J. Abrams coyly sneaks an early image of the alien into a skit on last night's '2012 MTV Movie Awards'.
During last night's 2012 MTV Movie Awards, Star Trek 2 director J.J. Abrams appeared in a skit about Hollywood's worst archery teacher, played by Joel McHale. Several eagle-eyed fans noticed that there appeared to be an image of a Klingon on the edit bay monitor behind the filmmaker. Today, Paramount Pictures confirmed that creature was, in fact, a Klingon, and that the alien race plays into the story of this highly-anticipated sequel. Take a look at the photo, and read on for more information about this cunning reveal.

Star Trek 2 J.J. Abrams Klingon Photo

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.

    Looks like Christopher Loyd to me, but who knows I would like to see the Klingon's in the second one as well.

    That could possibly be just a still from the first movie's deleted scene, but it'll be cool if they're in it.
