New Kirk-centric Star Trek 2 trailer finally heads into space!

Sure, the first trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness was awesome, but it was fairly light on the actual star-trekking. Instead, we got a lot of cool Earth-based footage and action. But don't worry, the second trailer is loaded with space battles galore.

Focusing more on Capt. Kirk (Chris Pine), the trailer opens with a somber voiceover from what appears to be Adm. Pike (Bruce Greenwood), telling Kirk that if he isn't careful, he's going to get his crew killed.

The new trailer isn't quite as creepy as the first, but it does play up the spectacle of the space battles, which look even more insane than before. Sadly, there's still no additional info as far as Benedict Cumberbatch's mysterious baddie is concerned, but hey, we'll happily take some nifty space battles any day.

Check out the new trailer below and let us know what you think:
