The new teaser for Star Trek Into Darkness opens with a foreboding voice-over by Bruce Greenwood as Christopher Pike. He lectures Captain Kirk, who it seems is as cocky as ever.
“There’s greatness in you but there’s not an ounce of humility,” Pike warns him. “You think that you can’t make mistakes but there’s gonna come a moment when you realize you’re wrong about that and you’re gonna get yourself and everyone under your command killed.”
The speech is followed by a flyover ceremony seen in the previous trailer but added are scenes of a Starfleet flag being solemnly folded and a shot of what looks like cryogenic pods but could just as easily be futuristic caskets given the context of what appears be a military funeral. Cryogenic pods would suggest the villain, John Harrison, has some connection to Khan, who was frozen in a similar fashion, whereas caskets would support my theory that Harrison wants revenge for redshirts, the cannon fodder of the Star Trek Universe.
