In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth. In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice. 

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.

We see "in defiance of regulations" as well as "bring those to justice" has been added. From previous descriptions by Cumberbatch and J.J. Abrams, John Harrison has been described as not only a terrorist, but one that isn't a cut-and-dry villain.
