Well, according to TrekMovie.com, who admittedly has a pretty good track record with Trek movie rumors. The title matches the volume-number-less installment of Star Trek Into Darkness, but seems to confirms the new Enterprise crew will finally be going on its five-year mission to explore strange new worlds, etc.

This fits with what Simon Pegg, who’s co-writing the screenplay with Doug Jung, said about the movie back in March:

[W]e just want to take it forward with the spirit of the TV show. And it‚Äôs a story about frontierism and adventure and optimism and fun, and that‚Äôs where we want to take it, you know. Where no man has gone before ‚Äď where no one has gone before, sensibly corrected for a slighter more enlightened generation. But yeah, that‚Äôs the mood at the moment.

I really like the idea of nu-Trek actually exploring space, but man, Into Darkness left such a bad taste in my mouth. On the plus side, I guess that just leaves more room for improvement, right?
