There’s a new image out, as well as a  menacing viral video, of Benedict Cumberbatch’s villainous “John Harrison” from this summer's Star Trek Into Darkness.

The new pic, courtesy of MTV News, shows Cumberbatch on top of what could either be a ship or some space debris or both.

The new short viral promo below features the menacing voice of John Harrison in a video that’s similar to General Zod’s threat to Earth from Man of Steel.

It’s also dripping with quiet menace (helped along by Cumberbatch's sexy, velvety voice, but we digress) and taunts Capt. Kirk (Chris Pine) as well as the rest of the crew of the USS Enterprise.

Have a look and a listen:

Director J.J. Abrams’ Trek sequel Star Trek Into Darkness will warp into theaters on May 17.
