TrekMovie has confirmed with multiple sources that "Star Trek Into Darkness" has been selected as the title for the 2013 sequel to JJ Abrams’ Star Trek movie. This is a title that comes out of a long process of discussion amongst the creative team. As reported earlier, Paramount tested a number of titles for the film over the summer, including at least one title that did not include "Star Trek." Also noted in our earlier article, the title (by design) does not include a colon, like were used for the Next Generation films such as "Star Trek: First Contact" or "Star Trek: Nemesis."
While Paramount will not officially confirm the news, multiple sources have told TrekMovie this is the title they are going with as of now. It has also been reported by ComingSoonthat Paramount has secured the domain names to both www.startrekintodarkness.comand www.startrekintodarknessmovie.com, neither of which has any content.
As for the title itself, "Into Darkness" does not reveal anything specific about the plot. So for those who were hoping for "Star Trek Khan" or "The Revenge of Gary Mitchell" you are out of luck. However, "Into Darkness" certainly gives us a hint that this film could have a serious tone and perhaps darker theme than the 2009 Star Trek film. On the other hand the title is also evocative of Star Trek’s core mission of going into the “darkness” of space, to seek out new life and new civilizations. Of course the current Trek team often point to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy as inspiration, with the second film in that series being titled "The Dark Knight" which itself had some very dark themes. Is this Trek sequel Star Trek’s "Dark Knight"? As that film grossed $1B world wide, I imagine Paramount is certainly hoping it is.
According to sources, the creative team are still working on how they will officially roll out this new title. The first acknowledgement will likely be made with some kind of visual treatment, either a type treatment for the title or possibly even a teaser poster or image. Indications are that this official roll out should be coming soon.
What do you think?
Sound off below and in our new poll on the title.

If that's true, then I guessed right back in October 2010. It'd make for a very interesting movie.
At a promotional junket for Dredd, Karl Urban may just have let slip who Benedict Cumberbatch is playing in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek sequel. When asked by SFX what it was like having the Sherlock actor on set, Urban replied:Spoiler
Yes, but only because history isn't the same. I'm not saying it's impossible for the Borg to appear in the TOS era but I think it's highly unlikely. As Dot Matrix said, they're still in the delta quadrant in Kirk's time. Unless time travel (or an omnipotent godlike entity) is involved, I don't see how the Borg could show up. Also, I think we've seen enough of the Borg. I'd like to see something new.
What I mean is, the alternative reality thing has allowed them to explain any new and strange story shift with "it's an alternate reality" and "the butterfly effect" (or whatever they'd call it in Star Trek, "temporal divergence ripples"?)
If it's too weird and off point, it'll be a lame justification, but they could do it if they wanted to

In the Star Trek books there was a next gen story where a lot of TOS episodes were linked to problems caused by Q, before they ever met Q. This included the barrier and the force that gave Mitchell his powers. It was actually from an evil being on the other side of the barrier that Q had battled and foiled and the Q continuum "lamed" and kept outside of our galaxy.
