'Star Trek Into Darkness': Scotty & Chekov, Simon Pegg & Anton Yelchin, Get Character Posters (PHOTO)

Two favored "Star Trek" characters take center stage in these new "Star Trek Into Darkness" character posters, debuting exclusively here at HuffPost Entertainment and on our sister site, Moviefone.

First up is Scotty (played by Simon Pegg), chief engineer on the Starship Enterprise and audience surrogate. (You'll recall his one-liner in "Star Trek": "I like this ship! You know, it's exciting.") Call this character poster Scotty giving it all he's got:

Next is Chekov (played by Anton Yelchin), the young navigator on the Enterprise. The new poster shows in his familiar seat on the ship's bridge. (Let's pay no attention to the fact that his Starfleet uniform is red.)
