The second Star Trek movie has been fairly vague about what it’s going to be, aside from the fact that the title will lack the colon it is so desperately crying for. But now, it has an official synopsis!
Which is still really vague!
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.
Despite the attempts to keep the villain secret for some bizarre reason, like this thing isn’t going to have a trailer that dumps the whole plot on us anyway around Christmas, it has been leaked that the villain is Gary Mitchell and this would seem to confirm that Mitchell will be the bad guy, unless they’re going Squire of Gothos on us.
We’ll keep an eye out for the official trailer: While there’s no word of one just yet, it’s likely it’ll be in front of Jack Reacher, Paramount’s big holiday action extravaganza.
