The USS Enterprise has been sent to a planet in the Nibiru system to observe a primitive civilization. Captain James T. Kirk violates the Prime Directive when First Officer Spock’s life is jeopardized, exposing the Enterprise to the planet’s civilization during the rescue. Called back to Earth, Kirk is demoted to first officer of the Enterprise, with his predecessor, Admiral Christopher Pike, reassuming command. The two attend an emergency meeting at Starfleet Command to discuss the bombing of a secret Section 31 installation in London, perpetrated by former Starfleet agent John Harrison. The meeting is attacked by a small gunship piloted by Harrison, who kills Pike. Kirk destroys the gunship, but Harrison escapes. With Pike dead, Kirk is reinstated as the Enterprise’s captain. After discovering that Harrison has fled to the Klingon homeworld of Kronos, Kirk receives special permission from Admiral Alexander Marcus to hunt down Harrison. The Enterprise is supplied with 72 long-range prototype photon torpedoes and ordered to fire them at Harrison’s location once he is found. However, Scotty, Spock, Bones and Uhura convince Kirk to capture rather than kill Harrison.

Arriving on Kronos, Kirk, Spock and Uhura set out to capture Harrison but are surrounded by Klingons. Harrison helps kill the Klingons and surrenders after learning that 72 torpedoes are aimed at him. Returning to the Enterprise, Harrison reveals his true identity as Khan, a genetically engineered superhuman who was awakened from his nearly 300-year suspended animation by Admiral Marcus to develop advanced weapons for war against the Klingon Empire. The torpedoes are found to contain cryogenic pods with Khan’s colleagues inside, who had previously been held hostage by Marcus.

The Enterprise is soon intercepted by an unmarked Federation warship, the USS Vengeance, designed by Khan and commanded by Admiral Marcus. Marcus demands that Kirk hand over Khan, but Kirk refuses. The Enterprise starts to warp to Earth to have Khan stand trial, but is attacked by the Vengeance mid-warp, exiting 237,000 km from Earth. With the Enterprise severely damaged, Kirk offers to hand over Khan and the 72 pods in exchange for the lives of his crew. Marcus refuses, revealing that it was his intention all along to destroy the Enterprise in his plan to dispose of the 73 superhumans and start a war with the Klingons. The Vengeance prepares to open fire, but suffers a power outage caused by Scotty, who had infiltrated the ship after following coordinates given by Khan to Kirk. Kirk and Scotty ally themselves with Khan and board the Vengeance, where they take control of the bridge. Feeling Khan to be untrustworthy, Kirk and Scott attempt to incapacitate him but are overpowered. Khan then kills Admiral Marcus and takes control of the Vengeance.

Khan negotiates with Spock, beaming Kirk and his boarding party back to the Enterprise in exchange for the 72 torpedoes, planning to destroy the Enterprise. Spock instead beams armed torpedoes to the Vengeance, keeping the cryo-pods on the Enterprise, having learned from Spock Prime (the older version of Spock) of his experience with Khan in his parallel time-frame beforehand. Spock Prime reveals that Khan was tyrannical and could not be trusted in his timeline. The torpedoes incapacitate the Vengeance, and both damaged ships start descending towards Earth. Kirk re-aligns the Enterprise’s warp core, enabling the crew to regain control of the ship, but suffers fatal radiation poisoning in the process and dies. Khan intentionally crashes the Vengeance in downtown San Francisco, where Spock pursues Khan on foot. Bones’s experiment on a Tribble reveals that Khan’s blood contains regenerative properties that may reanimate Kirk. Bones thus orders for Kirk to be immediately cryogenically frozen in order to preserve his brain function. Meanwhile, Uhura aids an enraged Spock in subduing Khan.

In the aftermath, Kirk is revived and returns to duty as captain of the Enterprise. Khan is sealed into his cryogenic pod and stored away with his colleagues. As the film ends, a restored Enterprise departs for a five-year mission of exploration.
