Is there anything so beautiful as a gleaming Constitution-class Federation starship dripping wet? 

As we've already gleaned from the teasers, clips and most recent trailer, Abrams' Into Darkness storyline has our beloved Enterprise hidden beneath the ocean of an alien planet where it lifts skyward in a majestic sequence. 

Here's a new poster showcasing the purity and awesomeness of the fleet's finest starship as it surfaces from its watery lair to take flight amid the heavens again.  Even though engineers have argued the scientific plausibility of this happening, it sure makes for a mighy breathtaking image.  

Jump in and take the plunge...
