Star Trek Into Darkness Official Plot Synopsis

Posted November 27, 2012 by Johnny2x in Entertainment

The villain is not Khan. It is most likely Gary Mitchell. Not a very intimidating name for a bad guy. I did not know who he was but I looked it up and the info is below. I thought J.J. (we are on a first double initial name basis) did an amazing job with the first movie turning people who never watched Star Trek before into instant trekkies. I this this will make for a great villain even though it’s not the Khan some of us were hoping for.

Lt. Commander Gary Mitchell first appeared in the original series episode “Where No Man Has Gone Before.” He was Captain Kirk’s best friend, who ended up receiving god-like powers through an accident and became a serious threat to the Enterprise and her crew. Gary Lockwood, who also appeared in the Sci Fi classic 2001: A Space Odyssey, originally portrayed Mitchell. –


n 2265, he was a lieutenant commander assigned as the helmsman aboard the USS Enterprise, by request of Captain Kirk. That year, the Enterprise discovered the flight recorder of the SS Valiant, a vessel missing for almost two hundred years. Examining it, and exploring the Valiant‘s last known position, the Enterprise penetrated the galactic barrier, an event that proved disastrous for Mitchell, and nearly so for the rest of the crew.

Mitchell was briefly stunned by direct contact with the strange energies of the barrier, but he recovered quickly. As his recovery continued, however, he began to display a widening array of psionic abilities, including but probably not limited to:

  • Hypercognition
  • Conscious regulation of autonomic reflexes
  • Telepathy
  • Extrasensory perception of various kinds, including clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairoratory
  • Telekinesis
  • The ability to control energy, including both its directed use as a weapon against other organisms, and an invulnerability to phaser weapons
  • The ability to manipulate matter, including the instant materialization and dematerialization of both organisms and objects

Here is the synopsis from Paramount’s official press website :

“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 hits theaters May 17th, 2013.
