Star Trek Into Darkness Synopsis Revealed!!
 
YES!YES!YES!YES!

Quote:

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.

Excited beyond words, I am! :D

Well, that's certainly a generic synopsis. Does anything there distinguish the movie from any other action blockbuster being released in the next twenty-minutes-to-ten-years? ;)

My initial thought is that it sounds like a Starfleet officer has attained superpowers and turned against his own people.

Detonated the fleet? As in blown it up? The whole fleet?

This is turning into Treklit.

If Admiral Leonard James Akaar shows up from the future with Picard and Crusher's baby, I'm out. :lol:

I don't see it.

For one, nobody's eaten Pluto yet.

A personal score to settle - wait we're getting another gods-damned revenge story? I've honestly lost count of how many revenge Trek films in a row there have been...

No strange new worlds or new life and new civilization?

Yeah, detonated is a strange word choice there. Other than that, it's pretty vague. Hopefully though, this signals the beginning of some sort of advertising build up. Who knows, maybe in a few more weeks, we might even get an official poster.

Yep. I wonder who that might be? :D

It sounds like the kind of very simple premise that lends itself to putting butts in seats. You could practically convey the idea via a poster. That's a good thing - ideally, the next movie needs to be an even bigger hit than the last one, and it doesn't pay to confuse the casual audience who has probably already forgotten the 2009 movie. Just give them something simple that promises to be exciting and fun.

Didn't you hear? Pluto came back in The Eternal Tide!

Waiting for the interwebs to implode with this vague synopsis.

You know what will make me happy reading this synopsis. If they did throw a bone to the 24th Century fans and have the result of this force create Section 31. That would be fun.

The OP left this part out:

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.
