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.

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.
