The Star Trek Into Darkness Deleted Scenes You Didn't See on the DVD

Illustration for article titled The emStar Trek Into Darkness/em Deleted Scenes You Didnt See on the DVD

You might recall that the Star Trek Into Darkness DVD/Blu-ray release was somewhat... umm, feature-light. Among other things, it didn't include any deleted scenes — but now those scenes have turned up, and you can read descriptions of them.


According to Trekcore, If you purchased copies of Star Trek Into Darkness through the xBox video store, then you can use the xBox SmartGlass second-screen app to view a ton of deleted scenes that were prepared for the DVD/Blu-ray release. (And then removed from the DVD, in an apparent effort to get you to buy the film more than once.)


Trekcore doesn't have the actual clips of those deleted scenes — and they appear not to be online anywhere else, either — but they've posted incredibly detailed descriptions of the deleted scenes here and here.

Among other things, there's a longer version of Kirk's discussion with Pike after Kirk is reprimanded. Carol Marcus explains the reason for her random British accent. Uhura has a much longer conversation with the Klingons. There's a longer fight scene on Kronos. There's also a sequence which we glimpsed in one trailer, where Kirk falsifies his log of the mission at the start of the film, in front of his bridge crew. Kirk watches Pike die. And at the end of the film, Kirk meets the little girl who was saved by Khan's blood — and they share a moment, seemingly indicating that they have a bond in common.

Also, there's a scene from the start of the movie where "John Harrison" calls Admiral Marcus with a message: "He said you'd know why he did this." And according to the film's editors, Maryann Brandon and Mary Jo Markey, on the commentary track, the sequence was cut to keep the Admiral's involvement more of a secret.

And for everyone who felt that Scotty got aboard the Killerprise too easily, there's a whole sequence where he talks himself on board:

This is... shuttle Copernicus. I have the...

He thinks hard, clearly not used to this kind of improvisation.

...hull plating and the coffee cells for the food synthesizers.

His face bunches up in anticipation for getting caught.

Shuttle Copernicus, we do not have you on our registry.

He regroups, and tries a more direct attack.

What the hell do you think I'm doin' here? Huh? You think I just happened upon an enormous box and thought I'd take a wee look? No! I've got a job to do! I can go back, if you like. Just give me your name, I'll tell 'em who sent me.

A long pause. He's sure the game is up.

Supply shuttles, you're clear to enter. You too, Copernicus.

I hate the having different features on different versions trend that's popping up. It's not just Star Trek, but it seems like more and more movies are doing this. Why should I be punished for not owning a specific system, or way of playing discs? This doesn't motivate me to go out and spend $100s of dollars to buy a new way of playing movies as well as re-buying the movie again, it motivates me to go to the internet and watch the clip there.
