The reinvigorated Star Trek movie franchise must be feeling a little bit like an unloved stepchild since J.J. Abrams decided to abandon Gene Roddenberry's nerdier baby in favor of the more athletic and popular Star Wars franchise.
Just to remind everyone who has been busy fancasting young Han Solo, we've got five new images from this summer's Star Trek Into Darkness, along with two magazine cover showcasing the high cheekbones of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and the mysterious John Harrison.
Chris Pine managed to play a convincingly confident Captain Kirk, somehow managing to preserve William Shatner's strut while also adding a comedically sharp self-awareness. Having accomplished the major feat of reinvigorating James Tiberius Kirk in Star Trek, Pine is at the center of a new reboot for Paramount Pictures.
At the end of this year, we'll see Pine's take on the title character in Jack Ryan, but right now, we've got a pair of pictures from the film showing off Pine, as well as Kevin Costner.
The game of hyping Star Trek Into Darkness while revealing very, very little of what the film is actually about continues even in the shadow of tomorrow's Christmas holiday. That means a bumper crop of almost a dozen images from the sequel, a pair of magazine covers, and word that Chris Pine's Captain Kirk will be disobeying orders this time. Hard.
Synopsis: 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.

Paramount Pictures has issued the official synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness.
Like all such synopses, it's deliberately vague to the point of near-meaninglessness, but since J.J. Abrams has kept such a tight lid on this sequel, the synopsis now represents our best idea of the movie's story.
