By April 2012, shooting had been going on for four months. Despite the production’s attempts to keep spoilery images from leaking online, website On Location posted up a snap of Quinto in a volcano suit, with the following description (yeah, ignore the fact they spell it ‘Spok’):
Zachary Quinto as Spok filming an action scene for the Untitled Star Trek 2 Sequel. After first rehearsing the scene with a Spok Stunt Double Actor Zachary Quinto was then rigged to a wire in front of a large green screen and lifted to a height of 10 stories high then dropped at a high rate of speed as if he was falling.
In the scene Spok is wearing a “Volcano Suit” and carrying an unknown piece of equipment with the Starfleet Emblem. A Volcano is somehow involved in this scene. The crew had a real fire burning off camera to catch the fire reflections on Spok’s “Volcano Suit”.
