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.
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....
How does this synopsis preclude the Khan theory? I'm not saying he is in the movie, but I don't see anything definitive here either way.

My initial thought is that it sounds like a Starfleet officer has attained superpowers and turned against his own people.
Yep. I wonder who that might be?

Well, not just a couple of buildings, no. Buuuut if they were looking for candidates, I'm sure I could come up with a couple of addresses.

Well, the synopsis promises an "explosive action thriller", so he has to blow things up and since sequels are supposed to be bigger..

I just hope they have not forgotten the drama amongst blowing things up, not that I have something against action, it just that Star Trek is often at its best when doing good drama.

It's a "personal score to settle", so there should be plenty of drama.

Also.. friends will be "torn apart"!

"from within their own organization" -- Makes sense. All of Shatner-Kirk's old friends turned out to be evil deranged bastards.

And if Tyler Perry's coming back, it could be Madea Gets Really Angry.

Not Khan.

One man weapon of mass destruction.

Not Khan. Not as we know him, anyway.

Khan could still be in the film, granted. But if he is, he hasn't been alluded to in this synopsis.

And lets not forget, love will be challenged.

Take that NuUhura! Maybe you shouldn't have flirted with Khan/Mitchell/Izar when NuSpock was just around the corner.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Synopsis Revealed!!

This sounds awfully like heart of darkness. Someone from the hero's own organization, betraying what it stands for and a manhunt into a war zone.

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.
Terror, war zone, weapon of mass destruction, enemy from within...seems like a commentary on humanity of the last decade or so.
Especially given Orci's love for 9/11 or Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories.

Anyway, it's just a synopsis.

Maybe, but there are plenty of ways they could change Khan's story to make him a part of Starfleet. The "one man weapon of mass destruction" is so vague I'm not even sure what it means. Like I said, I'm not saying Khan is in the movie. I don't think he is, but I don't think anything is more clear after this synopsis either.

Ho-hum. Sounds like a hundred and one other action thrillers.

For Friendship I am guessing it will be the kirk and mccoy friendship.Maybe McCoy will get fed up with Kirk recklessness and support a decision to get Kirk removed from the Captain’s position.

As for love been challenged I am guessing it is the spock/uhura relationship. May be he is willing to ditch her to help rebuild the Vulcan race or someone else caught her eyes and vice versa.
