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.
