Come off the ledge, Trekkies! I know it's been a bad few days what with J.J. Abrams trading in your future sequel pleasure for a shot at the Star Wars franchise, but he has not forsaken you. To the contrary, he wants you to know, via this eye-catching featurette that the action and the scale of Star Trek Into Darkness "is light years beyond what we did in the first movie," and, if that ain't enough, sparks are still flying between Spock and Uhura.
Abrams and three of his primary cast members, Zachary Quinto (Spock), Chris Pine (Kirk) and Zoe Saldana (Uhura) take turns telling you how special Star Trek Into Darkness will be. Quinto calls it "stunningly beautiful," Pine says the movie is "relentless," presumably in terms of its action and excitement levels and Saldana proclaims, "This is the kind of film that 3D was made for." And then — bam! — in the middle of a pretty relentless series of quick-cut action sequences, Spock and Uhura can be seen sucking face.
Take that, Rebel scum.
