Ok, keep in mind this was aired on Conan. Be very aware of that. However it is true that the first clip from JJ Abrams' STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS was shown.

There's a fairly good reason why we are seeing this particular scene from the movie as opposed to others. Back in April we were privy to some spy shots, one of which was of Zachary Quinto (Spock) hanging in front of a green screen wearing a suit to protect him from a volcano. This clip is from that scene.

Here's the description of the scene:
"Zachary Quinto as Spock filming an action scene for the Untitled Star Trek 2 Sequel. After first rehearsing the scene with a Spock Stunt Double Actor Zachary Quinto was then rigged to a wire in front of a large green screen and lifted to a height of 10 stories high then dropped at a high rate of speed as if he was falling. In the scene Spock is wearing a "Volcano Suit" and carrying an unknown piece of equipment with the Starfleet Emblem. A Volcano is somehow involved in this scene. The crew had a real fire burning off camera to catch the fire reflections on Spock's 'Volcano Suit'."

There are comedic caveats involved of course. But I'll let you watch it and decide what you make of it:

Hahaa! Ok, so it's only 3 frames long, but the screen cap shown above does show you Spock's profile wearing a helmet and suit in front of raging flames. Can there be any doubt he is great peril? Give us more JJ!

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS opens May 17, 2013. For all of our STAR TREK 2 coverage, click here.
