Back in December, we saw Star Trek Into Darkness‘ villain “John Harrison” (Benedict Cumberbatch) inside a glass prison (or more likely, a forcefield; larger point: no bars) being interrogated by the film’s heroes.  Today, new images from the film have been released, and we see our villain being flanked by security guards.  Last year, audiences learned an important lesson: if your villain gets captured, it was probably part of his plan.  Presumably, “John Harrison” is planning to have Scotty go Hulk and destroy everything.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Peter Weller, Noel Clarke, and Alice EveStar Trek Into Darkness opens in IMAX 3D on May 15th, and 2D and 3D on May 17th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness:

In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
