First plot details for Star Trek Into Darkness

Paramount has released the first synopsis for the next Star Trek film, Star Trek Into Darkness. It goes like this:
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.
Sounds interesting! "Detonated the fleet" sounds ominous! I wonder if this terror from inside (the Federation? Starfleet?) has anything to do with the conspiracy hinted at in the Return of the Archons comic in the ongoing series. I also wonder what happened to Kirk's family; we don't know was has become of his mother, and his brother and his family are alive and well as of Operation: Annihilate!, also in the ongoing series.

Most likely, this organization is the one and only Section 31 from Deep Space 9 (which was also hinted at that Sulu works for in the comic book.)

I have no idea what to make of the synopsis, but then again I am assuming that is the whole point. Until I see the 9 minute clip with The Hobbit and the trailer, I really don't care about the synopsis or to speculate on it because it meaningless until we get some hard info in the form of a trailer or footage. JJ...he's trixy!
