It’s hard to believe that Summer 2013 is only a few months away. Wait, didn’t Summer 2012 just get over? Yes, it did; but it was also super lack-luster and only had a few stand out movies that I cared about. Unlike, J. J. Abrams return to the big screen with the Star Trek sequel titles, Star Trek Into Darkness. Today, we’re happy to reveal to you Towelites the official synopsis. Take a look at it straight from Paramount!

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.

Best thing about this summary? Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC Sherlock) being described as a “one man weapon of mass destruction.” You’re entirely correct! Stay tuned for more Star Trek Into Darkness news as it comes here at DFAT!
