We know painfully few details about J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Trek sequel other than the fact that it will be titled Star Trek into Darkness and that Benedict Cumberbatch will play the yet-unnamed villain. However, courtesy of Coming Soon, we now have the film’s official synopsis to share with you, even though it’s about as vague as you can get. Check it out below:
In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes "Star Trek Into Darkness."
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.
With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.
As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
It might not tell us a whole lot, but the thought of Kirk and crew heading into a warzone to take down “a one man weapon of mass destruction” just sounds awesome to us. You can expect to see the debut trailer for Star Trek into Darkness in the coming weeks, and, as always, we’ll have it right here for you.
Star Trek into Darkness will hit theaters on May 17, 2013.
