New STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Images Featuring Spock, Kirk & Cumberbatch

The website,, has posted four new images from Star Trek Into Darkness that are featured in the latest issue of the official Star Trek magazine. Also, includes excerpts from an interview with screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

Roberto Orci describes the connection that Benedict Cumberbatch's role has with the title of the film:
"Well he understands Starfleet because he was enlisted in a similar way. Some might see part of the title coming from the fact
that he’s kind of a dark shadow of members of our crew. He too has gone through the process to some degree, that some of our crew have gone
though, and clearly for some reason it’s failed to bring him over, so I think he represents that part of our heroes." - Roberto Orci

Roberto Orci on how the film will use the budding relationship of the crew in the film:
"The relationship [between Kirk and Spock] is still forming itself, and in many ways forms itself over the course of this movie. It also gives us a great opportunity, because of the logic versus emotion conflict is such a brilliant and wonderful backdrop against which to pit a huge problem like Benedict Cumberbatch walking into their life. It isn’t just Kirk and Spock, it’s all of them, and how they’re all functioning together now. They are not the well oiled machine that they were in the original series, because they had gone through many, many more missions in the original series." - Roberto Orci

Alex Kurtzman discusses the themes that are explored in the film:
"The thing that’s been interesting to us is that, despite the fact that we are literally going Into Darkness, I think we all worked very hard to make sure the theme of hope, what hope costs, and what it’s really about, was always alive in how we were designing our story. So we’re pretty consistent with the last movie in terms of dark things happening, but holding on to the light that Roddenberry set up as a basic tenet of the Star Trek universe." - Alex Kurtzman

it isn't just Kirk and Spock, it is Kirk, Spock and BONES! Why is there so little Bones in these movies? It pisses me off so much.

side note
