New Star Trek Into Darkness Images

As a bit of a Christmas gift, Empire Magazine has posted the covers and images from their Feburary issue that will hit UK newsstands on December 27th. The cover story is Star Trek Into Darkness so we get a cool new image of Benedict Cumberbatch and the Enterprise crew (Pike is ex-Enterprise but still counts). The article contains a few story details so spoiler warnings.

- John Harrison is ex-Starfleet who attacks London and a US state who is privy to some of Starfleet's secrets that motivates his quest for revenge.
- Pine: "[Harrison] is Kirk’s shadow of death, his Achilles’ heel. He is just a big mirror reflecting all of Kirk’s insecurities back at him. He is just as intelligent and logical as Spock, but is also one very bad motherf—er."
- Cumberbatch: "He’s sort of superhuman, pretty much unbeatable. Brainy and brawny. He manipulates situations. He’s incarcerated when Kirk is talking to him and yet he still gets Kirk to do his work for him. He pushes him into a corner where the only route to salvation is cooperation. There is a real Hannibal Lecter quality to him."
- Kirk's attempt to capture Harrison is to fix a mistake that may cost him his captain's chair.
- Lots of new locations including Kirk's apartment (maybe the Pike, Kirk conversation)
- plot:
...with Earth under terrorist attack from Benedict Cumberbatch’s ex-Starfleet employee John Harrison, Kirk is this time forced into a rash decision that breaks a critical Starfleet command, puts his crew in danger & costs him his captain’s chair. Now out of uniform and dressed down in space civvies of black leather jackets and boots, our three heroes have separated from the Enterprise and headed off on a mission to try and rectify his mistake…
