The film opens in IMAX, with some changes in relation to what was seen before the screening of The Hobbit. Captain Kirk and McCoy are in a Class M planet, fleeing a people at a stage equivalent to our Stone Age. They run through a sensational kills, red, in order to take those people away from an erupting volcano. Volcano that can not only kill them, but end up with the entire planet.
Meanwhile, in a ship service, Spock, Uhura and Sulu flying over the volcano. Spock will go down to the crater, from inside, blow up an artifact that will freeze the lava. The Vulcan, with a special outfit (which reminds one used by Spock in the original Star Trek - The Movie) begins the descent, but it backfires and the cable that holds the official breaks. Luckily, he falls into a glowing stone and begins procedures to save the planet.
Kirk and McCoy continue to flee. After arriving on a cliff, they play and fall into the sea. Died? Nothing: they rightly wanted LOG on the USS Enterprise, which is at the bottom of the ocean on the planet.
"Mimimi, a starship in the sea," many people said that when he saw it happening in the trailer. You see, in the context of the film, it makes a lot of sense. The ship's crew can not, on account of the 1st Guideline, prove to the people. So, if you hide at sea makes a lot of sense and shields that can withstand stellar battle should serve to hold some water with salt. Not to mention that Mr. Scott, to receive the captain on the ship begins to lift a 888 reasons to leave the Enterprise in the ocean is crazy. That is, all that is really absurd. That's the idea. Mainly because these attitudes charge a price soon after.
In Command Bridge, Kirk gets the warning: Spock is alive and began counting device in the volcano. If the lava does not kill you, blast freezing will. Worse, in that situation, it is impossible to use teleportation. They need to leave the sea.
"You should not save me, Captain. Going against the 1st guideline, "says Vulcan. "Are you suggesting that let him die?" Replies Jim Kirk. "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few." PUTAQUEPARIU! It speaks of the death of Spock in Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan.
Needless to say that Captain James Tiberius Kirk does: he takes the USS Enterprise from the sea, bringing a terrifying vision that people and at the same time surprising that awaits them in the future.
How amazing to see that ship out of the water in huge IMAX. You do not even remember most of mimimi.
And so, at the last second, Spock is beamed into the ship. "Captain, you have violated the 1st guideline." "Oh, they did not even notice."
Not? Taken together, the inhabitants of the planet begin to draw the USS Enterprise on the floor. The design reveals a transition to a ship in space that then begins to come into the fold. A SCENE OF BENDING AMAZING, as was ever made and that should get even more fucked in 3D. Come up with a sound track of the franchise. On the screen appears the credits: Star Trek - Into Darkness.
And that's the end of the prologue.
In the next scene we see a Starfleet officer in London. He, with his wife, accompanies her daughter to a hospital. She is very sick and should not live long. The official, upset, walks the neighborhood of the hospital and is approached by a man. He introduces himself as John Harrison. "You want to save your daughter?" Says the man.
Yes, it's the film's villain, played by Benedict Cumberbatch.
Meanwhile, Kirk found in San Francisco, the city of Starfleet. He wakes up with TWO women-cat in bed. However, a message takes out quickly. Christopher Pike summoned to a meeting. He meets Spock in the way and starts talking, excited, "they will call us for that five-year mission, Spock." Yeap! It is a five-year mission that motivates the original series.
Only there the news is not very good. We found that the Enterprise should only monitor the volcano, and not meddle in that confusion, much less go against the 1st guideline. What's worse, while Spock was sincere in his report, Kirk lied completely. "It would be illogical to lie." Yeah, that's Mr. Spock we know.
Because of these attitudes thoughtless, Pike said Kirk is not ready to be the captain of the Enterprise (which is true, after all the new timeline he assumes command younger than in the original version). Thus, the admiral put Marcus Pike again as captain of the ship and Kirk sent back to the academy.
I did not say that the scenes from the beginning of the film would have a consequence?
Back in London, we see Harrison preparing something for the official Troop. Includes a ring and a remedy. With the medicine, the guy saved his daughter's life. Then he goes to a library of Troop in town. Inside - the deal is in the basement - places the ring he was wearing in the water. He begins to effervesce and ... BOOM!
Everything blows up.
The actual attack
Again the film back to San Francisco. Jim is in a bar, getting drunk after being demoted. When he will exert all its glory as Kirk xavecar for, behold, Pike appears. He has good news: Jim persuaded Marcus to put him as first officer on the Enterprise while Spock is transferred to another ship.
Not enough time to take a booze to celebrate: Pike is summoned to an emergency meeting.
On the way, Kirk finds Spock and tells what happened. "The penalty is low considering what we did," says the guy in the pointy ears and green blood. "Spock, I know that you have chosen not to have feelings and I appreciate that, but would like to see at least once compassion in his eyes."
It's nice to see that. Spock and Kirk, after the events of the first film, now are friends - in a way as is seen in the original series. The speeches of one another are acidic, leaving the friendship of these guys so different even more exciting.
The meeting then begins. Right now is one of the mysteries of savvy film: Peter Weller, Robocop eternal, plays Admiral Marcus - probably the father of the scientist Carol Marcus, with whom Kirk has a son in the chronology and original that is also present in addition to the Darkness.
With all the captains and first officers present, the Admiral reveals what went down in London. Someone is attacking the United Federation of Planets and they should fight back. And the author of this attack came from within: is John Harrison, part of the Fleet. There are pictures of him at the site of the attack.
At the head of Kirk that made no sense. He wanted to explain what he was thinking, but Pike does not leave. Marcus realizes the movement and ultimately forcing the first officer now explain what you're thinking. "It makes no sense. Why would he attack a library? It is a public place. There is nothing there to harm us. But he knows that it would meet us here in this room ... ". Jim does not even need to finish the sentence. Harrison comes through the window in a ship, ATTACKING EVERYONE!
Captains and senior officers dying. The villain soon reaches the core active Starfleet. Of course it is always Kirk and Kirk eventually finds a way to topple the craft. Not before it reaches the captain Harrison Pike.
Before falling, Harrison Kirk looks good in the eyes. Then the guy is teleported. The ship crashes and ...
Hacker. : (
Then was shown a five-minute scene, which takes place later on in the film. We see the USS Enterprise completely detonated, destroyed and with industries being attracted by Earth's gravity. The spacecraft will fall. Acting Captain Spock begins the process of evacuation and asks everyone to abandon their posts. He, however, will stay. "With all due respect to master, but nobody will abandon ship," said Sulu.
Because, if they do not avoid the fall or divert the ship to sea, many people can die on Earth ...
There in the middle, Kirk and Scott are going to engineering to try to stabilize the ship and do anything else that might save her. The Enterprise twists and turns in all directions and see a lot of people, but MANY PEOPLE, plummeting to his death by runners and engineering.
The scene ends with the Enterprise almost falling on our planet. Is this the end of the ship?
Fugue in San Francisco
The next scene takes place right after and now seems to be the climax of Beyond the Darkness - Star Trek. Harrison is a city that seems to be San Francisco, and Spock is teleported. Begins a chase through the streets, buildings and even windows, until the villain is played over a transport ship. Spock does the same and both come out in a fight.
Harrison jumps to another ship when Spock will do the same ... Hacker.
From what has to see JJ Abrams is really committed to bringing Star Trek to a place never seen before in the franchise. The villain, played by Benedict Cumberbatch incredibly, acts more like a warrior than as an alien army bent on ending universal peace.
Now ... Does John Harrison really is Khan? There is no hint of this in the scenes displayed. What gives to realize is that he is someone who wants revenge against Fleet. I'd say he's more fit Vulcan (brother / relative of Spock after an operation, as some rumors say) seeking revenge for the destruction of the planet than Khan.
Still, something is sure: whoever the villain, the first name is not John Harrison. It turns out that everything he does is to get the revenge he craves and, therefore, assume the identity of a Starfleet officer sounds more like something to meet the captains and first officers in the initial attack against the headquarters of Starfleet.
Already revenge against the villain Kirk apparently has a simple motivation: with the likely death of Pike, Jim loses one who considers a second father.
Ah, yes: one of my guesses, that Peter Weller could be Khan, was literally into space. As I said, he plays the admiral Marcus. Of course it is always a plot twist amazing there, but it's quite difficult to happen.
