Finally, a look at Benedict Cumberbatch in action in Star Trek into Darkness.

Sure, there's still no clear indication of who he's playing in the film, but he's in action -- and Enterprise garb -- nonetheless.

Behold the first full trailer for J.J. Abrams' reboot sequel, which returns Chris Pine as Captain Kirk along with his crafty crew -- including Zachary Quinto, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban and Simon Pegg -- on what looks like an even wilder, more dangerous ride. Right out of the gate, Kirk is warned that he's putting his friends in danger, and Cumberbatch -- whoever he is -- is just ripping things apart and threatening families like it's all fun and games. The synopsis calls him a one-man weapon of mass destruction, destroying the Enterprise from the inside, so get ready for some real grudge matches.

A nine-minute prologue for the film is running with The Hobbit in Imax theaters, for those thirsty for more.
