While we've already seen some cool (though grainy) set pics—plus that awesome leaked footage—of Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Benedict Cumberbatch on the set of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek sequel, we now finally get our first peek at John Cho, back as the U.S.S. Enterprise's helmsman, Hikaru Sulu.

While the pics are not too spoilery—in fact there's nothing really spoilerish at all about walking to the set dressed in black—it is still our very first glimpse of the actor, who's back at work on one of the must-see films of 2013.

Oh, and we also have a look at Spock's stunt double (nope, it's definitely not Zachary Quinto, squint and you'll see), as well as the beautiful Zoe Saladana, who seems to be quite busy with her cell phone ...

What do you think of those pics? Anything you keen-eyed readers can glean from them?

Star Trek 2 will soar into theaters on May 17, 2013.
