Captain Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise tangle with a seriously off-the-reservation Starfleet officer who is waging a solo tour of galactic damage, starting with Earth.
What We Know:
Having settled into the captain's chair comfortably, James Kirk (Chris Pine) may have let success get to his head. (You try being humble when you're in charge of the Federation's flagship and have bedded exotic women of all shapes, colors, and anatomical makeups across the galaxy.) However, Captain Ego is about to meet Captain Pissed-Off, when a former Starfleet officer, known to us only as "John Harrison" (Benedict Cumberbatch) has somehow become a one-man weapon of mass destruction and does some serious damage back home on Earth.
Apparently lacking the proper resources and personnel to deal with this crisis back at the Federation's home territory, Kirk and the Enterprise head back the Terran System's blue pearl for a showdown with the man who could be generously described as the most disgruntled employee...EVER. The battle will turn psychological and personal real quick as close relationships are put through a trying crucible devised by the hot-tempered Harrison that won't be solved by Corbomite Maneuvers and time-traveling humpback whales.
Crew members, Zachary Quinto, John Cho, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, and Simon Pegg are all back.
