Paramount has released a thrilling official Star Trek Into Darkness first-look featurette that’s so action-packed that you may want to hold on to something.

“The goal for this movie was to up the ante as much we could.” Lofty words from our man, director J.J. Abrams, and from the looks of the trailer and this intense, actiony "first-look featurette" on the highly anticipated Star Trek sequel, it looks like he may very well have succeeded.

The almost one-minute-thirty-second gripping video is chock-full of action scenes and breathtaking sequences, as well as perfectly awesome footage. There's also a little something for the ladies and the romantics at heart, since we get more smooch time between Spock (Zachary Quinto) and Uhura (Zoe Saldana).

Oh, and we also have Abrams, Quinto, Saldana and Chris Pine talking about the upcoming tentpole movie.

Quinto—fresh from his recent stint on American Horror Story: Asylum—calls it “stunningly beautiful,” while Pine, who plays Capt. Kirk, calls it “relentless.”

Now, shall we begin? Let’s have a look:

With that very exciting first-look featurette, we can say that we're as ready as can be to descend into darkness with the cast and crew of the U.S..S. Enterprise.
