Thank you, Simon Pegg. After getting a peek at that disaster-filled Star Trek Into Darkness poster this week, we've been dying to know when we'll see more. Now, we do.

Pegg took to Twitter to let fans know when that eagerly anticipated new Trek trailer will finally go live. Trek fans, it looks like Thursday will be a time for celebration.

The buzz around this film is huge, which owes a lot to the insane level of secrecy J.J. Abrams and company went to during production to keep even the most minute details under wraps.

Now we can't wait to finally get a real peek at this thing.

Here's how Pegg broke the news:

If you need a refresher on what we actually do know, here's the official synopsis:

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.

With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.

As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

The film is set to open May 17, 2013. What do you think we'll get to see once the trailer drops?
