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?
According to all the sites posting it, it's from a Paramount press release, although I can't find the original source.

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.

Yeah, this totally sounds like "Section 31 in TOS." The only weird bit is the whole "detonated" thing - I really, really hope that they're not blowing up more ships and are going for a more "Starfleet civil war" thing.
It will be probably feature some politicians. I wonder which direction will they go.

Space Bilderbergers/P2 Lodge trying to set up a dictatorship just to have more power.

Or there is an enemy that cannot be dealt with by a democratic geovernment so some higherups think the Federation needs to be dictatorship for a while.

Considering Orci's next series it would not suprise me if we would see some False Flag Terrorism. I only sen that done well once. It was in Khakee. great movie. I only seen one movie involving False Flag Terrorism as part of the plot.

Everyone says it's the official press release. I'm asking where the press release itself is posted, not just quoted.

Folks are clutching at straws to make this into Gary Mitchell. It ain't.

It's on their official press website, uploaded tonight. Believe me, we wouldn't post it if it wasn't legit.
I guess this "official press site" isn't accessable to us mere mortals?

A film of two hours of doing nothing but taking scans and readings is not summer blockbuster material....
And Star Trek has never really been summer blockbuster material either. When it tries to be is when it's at its worst. That's why I maintain Star Trek's true home is on television. That's where it has the freedom to tell the stories it wants to tell. And that's where it needs to go back to.

This will have more depth then the other one, guaranteed. The theme of Starfleet traitors and conspiracy is heavy stuff compared to some crazy blowing up planets.

It failed on television because the shows told the same stories in the same ways, over and over, for decades. Only a couple of million trekkies continued to care.

It's been said that "home is where, when you go there, they have to take you in." If there's any truth to that aphorism - which is, granted, tongue-in-cheek at best - then television is far from "home" for Star Trek now.

If the reception for Abrams's Star Trek so far is any indication, Trek's "home" is probably the month of May or June, every three or four years, for the foreseeable future.

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.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Synopsis Revealed!!

Cumberpatch is a brilliant choice as the villian; it makes me excited that he's (very possibly) Gary Mitchell. If true, a big budget version of his story is, for this fan, a 100 times more interesting than seeing Kahn a 3rd time In trek. Why? well, Khan was predictable in his unpredictableness. Gary is just plain scary.


I'll say this: if it was a version of TNG story above, I'd dig it. If memory serves, TNG conveniently decided to forget about that whole arc they created for themselves....or did I forget of a follow up?

They would have to make some serious twists in order to make him Mitchell considering the plot. It was probably carefully orchestrated misinformation.

There is no followup, not even in the books.
