Some dude at The BBC has seen footage from Star Trek.
Abrams then introduced the first excerpt, in which “farm boy” Kirk gets into a bar brawl with four Starfleet officers.
Kirk is subsequently seen being smuggled on board the Starship Enterprise on its maiden voyage by doctor Leonard “Bones” McCoy, played by Karl Urban.
Other familiar characters featured included communications officer Uhura, played by Zoe Saldana; Hikaru Sulu, played by John Cho; and Pavel Chekov, played by Anton Yelchin.
Bruce Greenwood plays Commander Christopher Pike, captain of the Enterprise, who is shown at one point exhorting Kirk to follow his father’s example and enlist in Starfleet.
In his scene, meanwhile, Nimoy’s Mr Spock is seen delivering the Star Trek legend: “Live long and prosper.””
