Unused Alien Horse & Fish Concept Art For STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS

These Star Trek Into Darkness creature designs are a horse of a different color – literally. Hit the jump to see concept art for an alien horse that was supposed to appear on the M-class planet of Nibiru while Captain James T. Kirk was being chased by the natives.

Conceptual illustrator Alfonso De La Torre ("Green Lantern") posted some rather interesting pieces of concept art he created for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness. The first two are of an alien horse and the third is an alien bug. The original plan was to have James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) encounter one of these two creatures instead of the beast that he stuns and then quickly finds out from Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy (Karl Urban) was their getaway vehicle. Alfonso De La Torre explained, "Originally, they wanted to design an alien horse, but in the end they scrapped the idea and I think they used the snow creature from the first movie, but with a different surface treatment."

As for the fishy set, Alfonso De La Torre said, "They were meant for the underwater scene where an "alien fish" comes close to the Enterprise and spooks Scotty." A fish does appear, just not one of the designs Alfonso came up with.
