Japanese STAR TREK Teaser Trailer Adds to Villain Intrigue

Paramount and J.J Abrams are playing fandom like a fiddle.

In addition to the 1:03 Star Trek: Into Darkness teaser trailer they released today that sent Trekkers both hardcore and casual into a frenzy trying to interpret the clues to Benedict Cumberbatch's still unofficially confirmed villain-identity, they also slipped in a subtitled version for the Japanese market, 14 seconds longer and featuring a couple of additional seconds and images at the very end that invoke a very famous moment in Star Trek movie history.

Is this clue what finally reveals who the big bad in Into Darkness really is, or just another masterful red herring?

Check out the Japanese versions against the U.S. version and see if it influences your opinion.
