Is it me, or is Kirk and company always facing a starship that is like a billion times bigger than their Enterprise? Seriously, the Federation really needs to re-think the design of their ships. These things are apparently tiny when compared to everyone else’s vessels in the known universe.

Anyways, check out a new, action-packed trailer for J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek Into Darkness”. This thing has it all — crazy action, huge amounts of pathos for Kirk, and Spock and Uhura playing kissy face. Plus, Benedict Cumberbath just oozing snarky doucheness as the villain. What more could you ask for?

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” stars Zoe Saldana, Alice Eve, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Peter Weller, Bruce Greenwood, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
