‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Will Feature Klingons

Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams has revealed that fans will get a chance to see some Klingons in the forthcoming sequel.

Although scenes featuring the race of aliens were shot for the Star Trek reboot, they ultimately ended up on the cutting room floor. However, fans who picked up the flick on home video could check out the sequences as deleted scenes.

Cinema Blend is reporting that Abrams discussed all things Klingon during a recent interview. True to his style, the filmmaker didn’t give too much away regarding how the characters will figure into the overall story.

He told MTV News:

“Their role in this is definitely adversarial and you’ll see how that plays out.”

Abrams added that folks who aren’t familiar with the Klingon race need not worry about being confused during Star Trek Into Darkness. He said viewers “don’t need to know any preexisting stories to enjoy this film.”

According to Indie Wire, this isn’t the first time J.J. Abrams has teased Klingon involvement with his upcoming sequel. The director reportedly slipped a quick image featuring the warrior race in a skit he did for the MTV Movie Awards.
