Any resemblance between “Star Trek Into Darkness” and our post-9/11 world and wars — well, that’s not exactly coincidental.
“I think it’s fairly obvious it’s a commentary,” says TrekMovie editor-in-chief Anthony Pascale.
In the tradition of science fiction and especially “Star Trek,” “Into Darkness” hinges on a plausible-to-our-ears plot about a terror bombing, hatched by the villain whose identity director J.J. Abrams did not want spoiled (hint: Khan is back, and Benedict Cumberbatch is playing him), that a war-mongering, Dick Cheney-channeling Starfleet leader, Peter Weller’s Admiral Marcus, uses to orchestrate an unrelated conflict with the Klingons.
