The latest star trek film Star Trek Into the Darkness has a poster shown below, featuring, someone whom I believe to be Captain Kirk on a mound of dirt and rubble. He's looking out over the London Cityscape (image below).
My first thought was 'What's he doing in london'? The plot is summarised on wikipedia as:
After being called back home, the crew of the Enterprise find a seemingly unstoppable force which has attacked Starfleet and left the planet in chaos. Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise are tasked with leading the deadly manhunt to capture the party responsible and settle an old score.
It seems as though the reboot will have some connection to London. In the original timeline, did Captain Kirk go to England/London before?
I've just been corrected on some points in the comments, but I want to clarify: I'm asking about "TOS or novels" not the new film!
