Arent the Engineering and Security insignia the same? The only variations I know of are Command, Services, Science and Medical.

Yes they are. Though I don't remember what insignia Cupcake was wearing in the last film.

Tell me about it. I'm just going to assume he had the sam insignia as engineering. I see no reason why it would have been done any differently.

Well, he has an engineering insignia when we see him wear that red shirt in the trailer.

And he's in the brewery... er, I mean engineering.
Actually, he's in the communications section where Kirk found Uhura in the first film. So... he's nu-nUhura, the communications officer who barely speaks english.

He has the same insignia. You can get some blurry views on the couple of other security officers we see. This is the only somewhat clear view of Cupcake's badge I managed to cap, on the left.

Maybe he spilled spaghetti sauce on his yellow shirt and didn't have another clean. So he borrowed one from a buddy in engineering.

maybe the Enterprise is damaged, lots of people wounded in engineering, imminent danger. Chekov is promoted to engineering section and says: "I can do it! I can do it!"

Without comment on whether or not Khan is in that picture or even the movie, I doubt this image is from the end of the movie. If the movie were ending with such a scene, it would be kept a bigger secret than the identity of Cumberbatch's character. It would not be in the trailer, not even in a vague out of context manner.
It would be kind of unexpected to show the end scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark in the preview but I wouldn't put it past Abrams to hide Khan – especially someone other than Cumberbatch playing Khan – in plain sight.

Seems like the wrong path for a seventeen-year old technical whiz. Doesn't really match what we see from the character in the first film.

Time to bump this thread with a little captioning/internet meme fun...



Happy New Year, all!

Has anyone been able to ninja-freezeframe to see if he's been promoted to lieutenant along with his transfer to security or engineering?

I wonder if his redshirtiness is to do with...
