    This sounds like its giving credit to that story about Benedict Cumberlatch being that psychic character from the original series that knew Kirk? I’m betting now on that being true…

    I don’t know if the comic book based on the new movie shares the same continuum or not, but if it does, they already told that story in the comic…. if the psychic character is the same one I’m thinking of.

    ” for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.” Does this imply that Kirk’s mother and brother are killed off in this movie?

    This is seriously the official statement from Paramount? Sounds like it was written by a teenager. How does one “detonate a fleet”? I wasn’t aware fleets were explosive devices.
