Handsome dude, ain’t he? Much like JJ Abrams did with his Star Wars Omaze charity contest video, his Trek successors revealed an alien in their version today. The big difference is that given Star Trek movies’ track records, you will probably never see this one as a toy. So enjoy the picture.
Then again, maybe it’s not a real alien. Maybe it’s a new puppet for Clint Howard. Or whoever says they’re totally not playing Clint Howard’s Balok in this movie when they actually are.
Check out the full video below if you like. Just know that aside from the alien head and a joke about eating a dog, there’s not much else fun about it.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
