This past week, Paramount released a brief synopsis of the next Trek film. This is just a few sentences to whet our appetites as we await the footage and trailer coming in only about two weeks now. I don’t think this reveals very much and it’s not much of a spoiler or anything but it does make you think about the film and make some guesses on who the bad guy really is going to be. Remember, it’s been said that the main villain is from established Trek canon – in other words it’s going to be character we have seen before now being played by Benedict Cumberbatch. But, in any case here is the synopsis for you to ponder:
Here is the official synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness...
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.
