Finally, something about what is going on in the upcoming Star Trek movie! J.J. Abrams hasn’t been very forthcoming, so far only showing a fraction of a second of film, but now we’ve got a synopsis to give us some idea of what the movie is about:
In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness.
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.
With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.
As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
So, this doesn’t sound at all like the return of Khan Noonian Singh, which all the early rumors claimed that Benedict Cumberbatch was playing. But who could the unstoppable force be? Gary Mitchell, anyone?
