MTV Movie Awards Reveals ‘Star Trek 2′ Klingons

- 06-04-12Film, TV Posted by NickBungay

Last night’s MTV Movie Awards had a lot of things. It had Russell Brand trying once again to be funny; it had mentions of the Hunger Games and Twilight, both of which won several awards; and it had an extended look at Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises.

Except for Brand, it was a great night. The real treat may have been hidden in plain sight, though.

Viewers of last night’s award show may have witnessed a little sketch involving comedy love child Joel McHale as Lester Boonshaft, archery guru to the stars. And aside from the awesome moment when Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence talked about her “tits”, there was an Easter egg that a lot of people may have missed. Check out the screenshot below and see what we’re talking about:

Yeah, even we missed it too. The astute people over at TrekMovie spotted what appears to be a Klingon behind the head of Star Trek 2 director J.J. Abrams, a race not yet seen in either the theatrical reboot or upcoming film franchise. And it was no accident either.

Fans of the series know that the race was previously seen featured in a deleted scene from Abrams’ first adventure on the Enterprise – it even shares a similar design. Putting two and two together, this appears to be a locked-in thing… but when HitFix reached out to reps for the film and they were “reluctant to go on the record”. Does this reluctance to respond ensure that Klingons will be seen in the Star Trek sequel? The studio still denies that Benedict Cumberbatch is playing Khan so maybe it’s their way of saying “yes”.
