Cumberbatch's quote from the trailer ... "Enjoy these final moments of peace, for I have returned to have my vengeance."

I've figured it out. The villain in Star Trek Into Darkness is Rick Berman.

/Totally makes sense.

Movie cold open: Deep space with a tinge of nebula in the background. Something drifts unpowered in the distance. It approaches the camera slowly, like the Narcissus in the opening credits of Aliens. We eventually see that it's a DY-100 transport. It passes by the camera which tracks it, and we can clearly read "S.S. Botany Bay" on its side.

The camera finishes its 180 degrees pan and a Federation starship can be seen approaching in the distance. It's a Constitution-class ship.

Cut to close up of the starship. At first we think it's the Enterprise, but we see the U.S.S. Constellation NCC-1017. Without any warning, photon torpedos streak to the Botany Bay. Three successive hits completely obliterate the sleeper ship. There is a spectacular series of explosion.

As the blast dissipates, we cut to a woman at the weapons station on the Constellation's bridge. She turns to report, "Target destroyed, Ambassador Spock. No survivors confirmed."

Camera quick-pans to Spock Prime standing by the captain's seat. He says, "Thank you, Ensign... McGivers. Captain, you may resume your mission." He leaves the bridge.

Then, we move on to the actual movie with Kirk and company on the Enterprise.

Ed Grubermann: 1: Who?
2: Why the fark does anyone care?

1a. Benedict Cumberbatch is a British actor most famous for playing Sherlock in the BBCs fantastic modernizing of the original Doyle classics. He's kind of becoming a big name nowadays, as he will also be voicing Smaug in The Hobbit as well as playing the Necromancer.

1a. John Harrison is... Well nobody knows. It's theorized that he is based off a reoccurring background character from the original series, or is using an alias to hide his identity as Kahn or possibly Mitchell.

2. Because he's playing/is the primary antagonist of Star Trek and its STAR TREK.

Welcome to the thread.

rwhamann: Khan vs Kirk can't be some decades long blood feud either, not without, ummm, decades.

Assuming that my memory is correct and that the universes diverge at the point where the Romulan ship arrives at the beginning of the previous movie, I'm going to go out on a limb & posit that Khan is found by another Star Fleet vessel commanded by a milquetoast captain who he defeated and assumed the identity of before going back to Earth to enact his revenge for being exiled during the eugenics wars 20 years ago our time.

simplicimus: Kirk 2.0 hasn't been around long enough to piss anybody off. Nor has Spock 2.0. Unless Scotty's gremlin assumed human form, I don't see anyone seeking vengeance.

why should it be someone who hates kirk. he could easily be seeking vengance against the federation as a total, and kirk just has to deal with him because he's the captain of a ship and whatnot.

Paleorific: Why reboot the series if you are just goig to visit the same old characters.

That strategy has kept the comic book industry in business for the past hundred years or so.

fusillade762: some_beer_drinker: bullshiat. it's gary mitchell.

From the sidebar of TFA:

Why Gary Mitchell Is Almost Certainly Not The Villain Of STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS

that is by no means proof of anything. im going with mitchell until proven otherwise. i am an old fan, and this smells like gary has come back. im excited by this, and i love this cumberbatch guy. he is one of the most brilliant new actors i have ever seen.
