Drones form giant Star Trek symbol in the sky – bow in fear

Marvel at the wonders of our new robot overlords as they come together to craft one of the geekiest symbols known to man

It's official. Robot quadrotors are our new overlords. They've already shown how accurate and deadly (not to mention graceful) they can be, and now they've forced us to pay homage to them by forming a gigantic Star Trek emblem in the London night sky.

30 quadrotors created the 308ft symbol near  Tower Bridge to promote the upcoming release of Star Trek into Darkness, and we can't help but marvel at their emotionless clinical precision. Watch them in action below and memorise their movements. It's our only hope once the first rebellion starts.
