_Despite the hype and critical acclaim, I was slightly let down by the last Star Trek film. It was sold to me and the wider audience that it would be telling the story of how the original crew got together, the meeting of Spock and Kirk.
Yes, the film did that, but it was a massive con, as it was set in an alternative reality not the original canon of Star Trek. Yes I understand that this way the new films are not constrained to a rigid canon and timeline, but I can still be disappointed.
_However, I am an un-ashamed Trekkie and I am looking forward to the next film. The first J.J. Abrams' one was so secretive that I really can't recall any set pics being leaked. So I was surprised at seeing the below.
British fans will be familiar with Benedict Cumberbatch, who is set to play the villain, seen here with Spock (Zachary Quinto) and Uhura (Zoe Saldana).
