'Star Trek Into Darkness' Synopsis Positions The Film As A Galactic Manhunt

We don't know a lot about J.J. Abrams' second Star Trek film, Star Trek Into Darkness. We know the film stars ring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller, and that it is scheduled for May 17th, 2013.

But an official synopsis that went online today gives us some new tidbits. One word sticks out: manhunt.

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.

Not the best written thing, is it? But The Film Stage, who pointed this out, dug it up on Paramount's own press site. So it's legit! And now, speculate away.
