Some of that synopsis reads like it was written by someone who doesn't speak English very well. Has anyone seen the press release, or is it on the Paramount website?
That synopsis is the official Paramount press release.
Anyhoo, although not overly enthused, I'm also not against this. That plot synopsis has me in a better mood than Trek XI's did. Although this still sounds like dumb action flick, I've come to expect that from Bad Robot.
And Cumberbatch's identity still isn't revealed.
If a "dumb action flick" makes Star Trek a commercial success on the big screen, that's fine by me. The direction Abrams is taking is not my cup of tea, but I'm not hostile to it if it continues to make Star Trek profitable and gives Paramount confidence in the brand. The more new fans these films create, the more likely it is we'll see ST back on TV.
