The official Synopsis for the upcoming Star Trek: Into Darkness has finally been released by Paramount and it reads like so:
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.
What I really love about this, is that is says a lot about nothing. It describes a situation without giving away a single plot detail. Frustrating right? Those bastards. ah well, its probably for the best. There is something about a trailer or synopsis…when it gives to much of the film away it just pisses me off. But anyway, the idea of the new Trek film inching closer and closer to theaters is still very exciting. J.J. Abrams blew me away with his original reboot of Star Trek and from what I have been hearing about his next adventure into Trek lore it only gets better. Plus, no matter what character Benedict Cumberpatch is playing, that dude fucking rules. Getting to know the cast in 2009 was awesome, but getting to see them finally work together as one cohesive unit is going to be even better. So get excited kids, and don’t let the news of a new Star Wars trilogy deter you from getting excited about the second chapter in one of the best executed reboot series currently happening in Hollywood.
