Star Trek Sequel Set Photos

Multiple online websites (MTV, Yahoo, PopSugar, & TooFab) have posted images (below) taken by On Location News of filming on the set of the Star Trek sequel. The images show Benedict Cumberbatch (main villain), Zachary Quinto (Spock), and Zoe Saldana (Uhura) on "a Space Barge set". The action shows Spock's Vulcan nerve pinch failing to subdue the big bad forcing a potential save from Uhura. TrekMovie spotted in the last pic an IMAX camera rig. This strongly indicates that the movie will have at least some real IMAX scenes (vs. post converted) when it comes out next year in 3D and IMAX.

The photos (below) reveal little but allow for a whole lot of fun speculation. Spock is in his blue Starfleet uniform, pretty sure Uhura is in her red Starfleet skirt (a nod to The Original Series), and Cumberbatch is wearing a black shirt that has a Starfleet logo on it or at least a faded version that indicates possibly the location of where the patch use to be before it was removed or ripped off. The villain also seems to be a human or an alien that was modified to look human (a spy?). The big bad also has the strength to take on a Vulcan and shrug off the nerve pinch, something a normal human would not be able to do. Shades of Khan? Or just highly trained?
