Regarding the first photo showing Harrison's back with the obvious Klingon Spine Ridges....
why has no one yet pointed out Kirk's obvious superfluous third nipple, just in front of his right armpit?

This is creating more speculation on Harrisons character on other forums.
How much more speculation on these unspecified and un-linked other forums, I wonder?

The apparent bumps got one passing mention in another thread here - one - and it may have been less than completely serious. And (until this thread) no one's mentioned thinking that the redshirts were looking at Harrison's back; guy on the right seems to be looking at or past the redshirt next to him, anyway, rather than at Harrison.
http://www.trekbbs.com/showpost.php?...3&postcount=30

I was kinda-sorta half serious... I think...
It is awfully pronounced...
I'm not saying I really believe it's Klingon in nature...
But even with his head slightly tilted forward, his spine shouldn't be that obvious unless he's been starving for a few weeks.

Try it yourself, tilt your head forward and run your hand over your back... the bumps are there but not sticking out that far.
I've worked in a hospital for over 35 years and have only seen that kind of pronounced spinal column, in people with some kind of deformity like scoliosis or folks who are severely under nourished.

I could be waaay off base, but it looks to me like that's specifically there for a reason.

Maybe he's wearing some kind of harness or something to do with picking up his voice during the recording of the movie???

I don't really have a clue, but it is kinda strange.

Is that CumbyKhan or Wellers character with the gun???

The hair looks kinda-sorta funky for CumbyKhan.

[EDIT]
Never mind... it's CK, I went back and took a closer look at the newest pics... he does have funky hair like that.

John Harrison is obviously a cloned Augment/Klingon/Romulan/Borg hybrid.

In addition, he will also be revealed as the "Future Guy" from Star Trek: Enterprise.

Must have been a cold day when that photo was taken.

Re: New Image Released Showing Harrison With Raised Spinal Ridges

Kinda like the face on Mars mystery, isn't it?

Believe what you want to believe, but I bet credits to navy beans it's a combination of lighting and the fabric of the shirt accentuating things back there.

And Weller doesn't have hair like that. Then again he could always be wearing a wig...

Maybe he's a new villain that we haven't seen before and is not associated with anything we've seen before.

What? That's crazy talk, man!

Honestly, I'm reminded of all the wild rumors and "spoilers" preceding THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Remember when we all "knew" that the main villain was going to be Hugo Strange, and that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was obviously playing Black Mask . . . or Alberto Falcone . . . or the Riddler . . . or Dick Grayson . . . .

Heck, I remember people arguing strenuously that you could absolutely tell it was JGL in the Batsuit in certain scenes in the trailer. They were completely wrong, but confidently so.

I remember when Gary Oldman said the villain was the Riddler.
