Star Trek 2 set photo shows Spock in an eerily familiar space suit

Apr. 16, 2012by: Alex Maidy

Ladies, cover your eyes. I am about to show you my nerd.

Ever since I was a kid, I have loved STAR TREK equally with STAR WARS. But, STAR TREK holds a special place to me having watched all of the Original Series with my dad as well as The Next Generation. We made it our goal that when each film was released in theaters we would see it together. This started with THE VOYAGE HOME and ended with the most recent JJ Abrams film. So, I know my Trek pretty well.

MTV recently posted a new set pic from STAR TREK 2 that shows Mr. Spock dangling from wires in front of a green screen. Take a look.

And check out this image from the original STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE.

Is it just me or do the two bear a striking resemblance? Granted, the original suit was a space suit and the second is described as a "Volcano Suit" and carrying an unknown piece of equipment with the Starfleet Emblem. A Volcano is somehow involved in this scene. The crew had a real fire burning off camera to catch the fire reflections on Spock's "Volcano Suit".

I may be stretching to draw a comparison between the two, but the tidbit of information does give us some more hints as to where Abrams' sequel may be headed.

STAR TREK 2 opens May 17, 2013.

You thinking they might head into V-Ger land?? That would be interesting. Not watching any of the later series, Voyage and DS9 I had heard that they linked V-Ger to the Borg, maybe Abrams could give them a shot for a 3rd movie. Would love to see Kirk and crew face off against the ultimate Next Gen baddies.

Ended?

"...and ended with the most recent JJ Abrams film."

Aw. I hope that wasn't the last one (for any terrible reasons) and means something more like "... and has continued up to."

I think it's because his head is jammed into the bottom of the helmet. If he were walking around, the suit would rest on his shoulders and the helmet would be lower. Suspended on cables, the suit supports Quinto's body so the helmet sits much higher in relation to his head and shoulders.
