See What the Klingons Could Have Looked Like in 'Star Trek Into Darkness'

If you watch the deleted scenes on the DVD for 2009's 'Star Trek,' you can see an extended sequence involving Klingons, the most iconic of 'Trek' villains. Although they were cut from the film, these scenes took a wary approach on how to depict this menacing warrior race -- their faces were completely covered up by masks.
However, the Klingons played a much larger role in this year's 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' where they were unmasked, revealing them to look, well, pretty much like how Klingons are supposed to look. However, some cool concept models reveal that director J.J. Abrams and his designers toyed around with all kinds of options before going the traditional route.

Last week, countless 'Star Trek' aficionados from all over the world descended on Las Vegas for the massive Star Trek Las Vegas convention. Although much of the event focused on good-natured geekery, there was some pretty serious fanboy work to be done. Namely, one panel set out to rank all of the 'Star Trek' movies, forever ending any and all debate on the matter (not really). Most of the final order isn't too surprising, but the assembled fans made one thing very clear: they really, really hate 'Star Trek Into Darkness.'

Many 'Star Trek' fans felt personally betrayed when director J.J. Abrams ditched the series and jumped ship to 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' After all, the two iconic science fiction franchises have been embroiled in a silly war among fans for decades now -- either you're in one camp or the other, it seems. But how would Trekkies feel if Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, took a journey to the 'Star Wars' universe?

J.J. Abrams Reveals the Benedict Cumberbatch Shower Scene Cut From 'Star Trek 2'

by Damon Houx May 22, 2013 @ 10:11 PM
This weekend 'Star Trek Into Darkness' roared into theaters, and -- like any project based on a fanboy favorite property -- it's been put under the nerd-complaint microscope. One of the criticisms that stuck is that J.J. Abrams and the writers unnecessarily included a shot of Alice Eve in her skivvies. Abrams addressed that on 'Conan' and tried to apologize by showing a cut scene of Benedict Cumberbatch showering.

'Star Trek Into Darkness' Writer Apologizes For "Unnecessary" Underwear Scene

There have been a lot of complaints about 'Star Trek Into Darkness' since the film opened, one of them from female fans who felt that having character Carol Marcus (Alice Eve) strip down to her bra and panties for no apparent reason was sexist. The complaints became too much for 'Star Trek Into Darkness' writer/producer Damon Lindelof who finally admitted the shot was "gratuitous" and "unnecessary."
Do you agree?

This past weekend J.J. Abrams unleashed the second entry in his rebooted 'Star Trek' franchise, 'Star Trek Into Darkness.' With Kirk, Spock, Uhura and company back in theaters, we've been giddily revisiting all things Enterprise, and we realized there is one thing this reboot demands more of: George Takei. Like swashbuckling Sulu wouldn't have improved things by 100%.
Takei has emerged as a major force in social networking, political activism and general interwebs awesomeness. And we just can't get enough. Just imagine what 'Star Trek Into Darkness' would look like with Takei playing every character. We did. Oh my!
