Paramount has released a new synopsis giving more details about Star Trek into Darkness.

As always, potential spoilers are behind the cut.

“In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek into Darkness,” said the Paramount release. ” 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.”

    Am I missing something? This looks like the old synopsis… what’s the ‘more details’ bit?

  • http://www.facebook.com/bob.testino Bob Testino

    your right. its the same synopsis we got last week. nothing new here. misleading headline.

  • Guest

    Still laughing at “detonated the fleet” and “epic chess game of life and death” and “love will be challenged”

    I feel sorry for parodists; this already reads like parody.

  • Kang the Unbalanced

    Not at all. There is still room for “fellated the fleet” and “epic pork fencing” and “love will be challenged– ALL OVER THE CAPTAIN’S FACE.”

  • WMD-user

    What is a “one man weapon of mass destruction”? A WMD that can be used only by one man or is one man supposed to be a WMD?

    Way to go, T’Bonz. You gave us the same synopsis as before. Obviously Altzheimer’s can be added to the fybromengina, or whatever it is that was mentioned before.

    All that aside, in answer to Guest’s question, a one man weapon of mass destruction can be defined as both described in his question. It depends on the situation and the circumstances present. Sometimes people can be a force of nature to be reckoned with. Even one man with a weapon in his possession and a cause can become a sadistic power.

    Unfortunately, the explosive and violent tragedy from last week is a sick, cold, brutal, twisted, and sad reminder of such a situation.

    It’s mostly the same, except this was added: “In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice.” The defiance of regulations is new. Plus the “manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction” was taken out of the official synopsis.

    Minor perhaps, but a change nonetheless.

    I don’t have Alzheimer’s (yet!), my dear Keyboard Warrior (meaning you’d say this behind your cocoon of anonymity but would never have the balls to say it to my face, while I *would* have the balls to eviscerate you in person). However, a request for future postings. Will you PLEASE use a spellchecker? It’s Alzheimer’s and fibromyalgia. I do so hate it when people don’t even bother to appear educated.

    “It’s.” Stupid copy function.

  • Polaris01313-1

    I see that I struck a nerve. Nevertheless, I’ll take your advice under advisement.

    All that aside, with a new description of the synopsis, the movie sounds twice as exciting. May of 2013 will definitely be a special month.

  • Mike

    Yeah… “Special”…

    Altzheimer’s is the alternate form of Alzheimer’s. Lots of people have it in the mirror universe!

  • Polaris01313-1

    Fellated the fleet? What dirty magazines have you been reading lately?

  • Polaris01313

    Physically speaking(in terms of gender), T’Bonz, you do not have those specific organs. However, that is neither here nor there.

    All that aside, it will be interesting to see how this unstoppable force of destruction will turn out in the next film. Having seen Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance in the trailers, it will be an explosive confrontation between the crew of the starship Enterprise and ‘John Harrison’. One where there will be one faction surviving….or neither one surviving at all(i.e. the latter being they will annihilate each other totally).

  • Polaris01313-1

    While I am thinking about it, I want all of the J.J. Abrams haters to read this….

    http://sciencefiction.com/2012/12/29/j-j-abrams-grants-dying-mans-wish/

    Maybe now, you purists will think twice before making such empty headed remarks about Abrams and what he has done to the Star Trek franchise.

  • Mike

    I don’t see how letting a dying man see either 9 minutes of your movie or your whole movie has anything to do with the quality of your work itself. I don’t think anyone here has ever said that JJ Abrams is a horrible human being… But being a nice/good guy doesn’t have anything to do with making quality material. So, keep trying… maybe one day your ad hominem attacks against one person will rub off against another… If only, right? If only you could turn your hatred of that one guy Vic into everyone hating JJ Abrams… alas…

  • Polaris01313-1

    My hatred for Vic Mignogna and the Farragut Films staff is a justifiable one. One involving their illegal violations of ethics and morals.

    Purists fans’ hatred for J.J. Abrams and his resurrection of the franchise is not. It’s all a bunch of BS.
