Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Synopsis Revealed!!

an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization

With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk
So it's someone he knows, not just the horror of a starfleet officer gone rogue. A personal score.

I'm betting it's Gaila. Her eyes are gonna glow so bad..

NOOOooooo NOT WINONA!!

Is this a move on Trek by Disney, killing off both moms?

Hmm... Gary Mitchell survived Delta Vega (he was in-between forms), got picked up by whomever (Section 31?) and is working within the Federation for better security (topical subject, a la the PATRIOT Act and TSA). That's my theory at least.

Either way I'm excited for this movie, Merry Christmas indeed!

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Synopsis Revealed!!

This is fantastic! I think at this point, though, the synopsis still leaves it open as to who the villain can be. Of course, the two front-runners we've been discussing this whole time.

The phrase "Detonated" sounds off, but nonetheless it sounds like Starfleet will be in serious disarray. These guys can't catch a break in nuTrek (not that the prime timeline was any kinder)!

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Synopsis Revealed!!

I would love there to be some Section 31 but I seriously doubt it will happen.

It sounds like Winona, George and Frank aren't long for this world.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Synopsis Revealed!!

I can see how Gary Mitchell could be described by this synopsis (and while I enjoyed the Section 31 stories, I'd also like to see Gary Seven again), but I had a third, less likely theory a while back that fits this scenario.

Garth of Izar, perhaps?

I would be VERY happy with Garth of Izar as the villain.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Synopsis Revealed!!

What's with J.J. Abrams? The first move he 'nuked' Vulcan. Now, he 'nukes' the fleet. What's next - Earth? I will say this about him - he sure loves the nuclear option.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Synopsis Revealed!!

Well you wouldn't want the unstoppable force of terror to just blow up a couple buildings in San Francisco would you? How is that going to leave our world in a state of crisis and propel people into manhunts?

Yeah, I am actually hoping Earth is destroyed so we will get at least one trek movie with kirk and crew AND NOT showcase Earth..

For every person that thought we were gonna get a skinny, pasty British dude as Khan, I laugh at you....

Yep. I wonder who that might be?

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.
I remember people trying to convince me the sequel would be a little more cerebral and the first was just to get people in interested in Star Trek again. Even the most action heavy of the original 10 had a commentary on humanity. If this means the end of Star Trek being a "rather talky geekfest" as Abrams puts it then I can write the franchise off as no longer relevant to my interests.
