Given the veil of secrecy that still exists over JJ Abrams' forthcoming Star Trek sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, the release of an official synopsis for the film is a little more momentous than it ordinarily would be. After all, we’ve barely had a hint of a story detail for months.

However, courtesy of Paramount Pictures, we get our first flavour of just what the new Star Trek film is about. And here’s how the synopsis reads:

“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.”

Star Trek Into Darkness is released next summer. The first trailer for the film is due in the middle of December.
