J.J. Abrams always seems to be able to keep spoilers down on his projects, but with a little over 2 weeks until the trailer drops he has released the official synopsis for Star Trek: Into Darkness. The trailer will debut on December 14th before The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and viewers who watch The Hobbit in IMAX will be treated to 9 minutes of the film.

The film stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Alice Eve, Peter Weller, Noel Clarke, and Benedict Cumberbatch. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in 3D and IMAX 3D on May 17, 2013.

Official synopsis;

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.

There’s a lot of buzz words in there that point toward a villain of superior intellect and tactics. I’ve made no bones about my love for Khan Noonien Singh, and hope he appears in the film. If he doesn’t, I’m sure it’s only a matter of time. What do you think?
