Spock Prime and Klingons To Appear in ‘Star Trek 2′?

Despite previous rumors that no cast members from the original Trek TV show will appear in the second installment in the rebooted Star Trek film series, Leonard Nimoy is reportedly set to reprise his turn as “Spock Prime.” This is based not only on word from insiders, but also Nimoy himself – who confirmed as much to CNN last week, and even released the following, curiosity-arousing Tweet recently:

I enjoy conversations with JJ Abrams and Zachary Quinto. Keeping up on their work. They are my friends. LLAP

Similarly, TrekMovie sources are indicating that the Klingons will also be showing up in Trek 2. Much like the “revelations” about Khan being the villain or Spock Prime returning, this doesn’t come as a huge surprise – seeing how the classic Trek baddies just missed making the cut for Abrams’ original Star Trek movie, as evidenced by this deleted scene featuring “mini-Klingons” (sorry, it’s only available for viewing on Youtube).

[SIDENOTE: If Joseph Gatt is indeed playing "the muscle" that works for Cumberbatch as Khan in Star Trek 2 (as we've speculated before), does that mean Gatt could be portraying a Klingon warrior? One has to wonder...]

If we assume that all of the above “rumors” are indeed accurate, then we’re still left with a situation virtually identical to that throughout production on, say, The Dark Knight Rises – namely, we still have no idea yet how all these Trek 2 ingredients (Khan, Spock Prime, Klingons, young Spock traversing a volcano, etc.) fit together. Suffice it to say, Trek fans should have plenty to talk while we wait for more concrete details about the picture.

What are your thoughts on all of the aforementioned rumors? Are you happy/enraged that Khan could indeed be the villain in Star Trek 2? Sound off in the comments section.

The film brings back the entire crew of the USS Enterprise, including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin, along with newcomers such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Noel Clarke, Alice Eve, Peter Weller and Joseph Gatt.

Star Trek 2 flies into theaters around the U.S. on May 17th, 2013.

  1. Tribbles… Come ON JJ you canmake this work!!! jk Platoes stepchildren… or the one where they bump into apollos hand in space could work… apollo has to recharge is batteries and kirk fights a giant lizzard oh wait how about the one where they have to dress like gangsters and call the phasers “heaters” lets just go with the red hour and be done with it… Star Trek 2 khan and the wrath of tribbles!

  2. the best star trek sequel would be finding the botony bay while enroute to respond to the uss constitution dealing with the doomsday machine, khan steals the constitution and eventually dies after battling the enterprise while the doomsday machine is close behind, jj abrams has to remember that even though he may of changed theyre lives there are outside forces that are still at work unaffected by the change in the time line ex: V-ger, whale probe, doomsday machine and so on. but khan stealing the constitution would make an awesome movie with his eventual DEATH destroying the doomsday machine thats my opinion

  3. of course thats not whats going to happen and im going to be upset =(

  4. Considering Khan and his associates left Earth before the divergence of the timeline, his and their attitudes and behavior would be identical to that of the ST:TOS episode. The real question is, who discovers the Botany Bay this time, and has to deal with the newly awakened super humans? Theoretically, they could have been discovered by someone else in the past 25 years. And Khan is a Super Humans First, Humans Second, aliens last type.

  5. If the character Khan is the basis for the sequel, I won’t be going to the movie. Talk about Hollywoods lack of imagination or originality.

  6. Are the rumors true about it being Khan. The villain looks more like Gary Mitchell off of “Where no man has gone before” episode.

  7. lol i love the picture “Sherlock Star trek”
