Star Trek Into Darkness Gets a Synopsis; Still No Punctuation

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 organisation 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.The recently released synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness, with all the potentially spoilery stuff behind our spoiler tag.

I’m just asking for a colon or a comma, people. A hyphen, even.

    And here’s where I’m torn. The 2009 Star Trek was hella entertaining. It was also dumb. This new film sounds like it will be equally hella entertaining but also dumb. It’s basically getting away from all that “new life and new civilizations” and going for the “pew! pew! pew!”

    Is it ok that I’m still resentful that the new Trek effectively renders the expanded universe established by TNG/DS9/VOY obsolete?

    It’s not obsolete at all. This is rather explicitly an alternate universe set during the TOS era. All the old shows still exist, you can enjoy the movies w/ or w/o watching them.

    I get that and I understand that’s an alternate universe (and timeline) but, if someone wanted to set a new Trek in the post-TNG era, I have a feeling it would be logistically difficult to pull it off if the alternate timeline Abrams Trek is the default Trek these days.

    So the whole of the fleet gets destroyed a second time, and earth is menaced by another Weapon of Mass Destruction. Peachy. Just peachy.

    And the Pocket Books novels have been (and are still) doing the best Star Trek stories we’ve ever had. With very little chance of a new series/movie coming along to upset things, the novelists now have free reign to shake up the status quo –with the kind of planning, narrative cohesion, research, and attention to detail that prose can do FAR better than TV/film ever could.

    Hell, they’ve even managed to make Voyager cool. Voyager!

    If Shat were starring, you could just use ellipses and capitalization

    I am so sick of people saying the old universe is obsolete. This is an AU!

    I love Star Trek, but Star Trek was dead. If anything can help it become popular again I am happy! Hopefully this leads into new things for the old universe we know and love.
