New Star Trek images unveiled

A raft of new 'Star Trek Into Darkness' pictures have been unveiled.

The new images show various members of the cast of director JJ Abrams' hotly-anticipated sequel in all manner of action poses, including a rather alarmed-looking Simon Pegg, who reprises his role of Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott.

In addition, there's also a picture of what looks like a pow-wow between Pine's Kirk and Bruce Greenwood, who plays Admiral Christopher Pike.

The pictures emerge after news that Abrams, who is notoriously secretive over his plots, gave a terminally ill 'Star Trek' fan a secret screening of the film despite it being unfinished.

It doesn't hit cinemas until May 17.
