They may not be three-dimensional, but IDW’s prequel comic “Star Trek Countdown to Darkness” provides the first look at Klingons since the deleted scenes in J.J. Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek.  Acting as a bridge between Star Trek and this year’s Star Trek Into Darkness, the fourth issue in the comic series promises a bit of bearded and bladed action from the fan-favorite alien race.

Star Trek Into Darkness, starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Cho, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Alice Eve and Anton Yelchin, opens May 17th.  Hit the jump to check out the full Klingon image, plus a recap of our previous and ongoing coverage of Star Trek Into Darkness.
