conspiracy unravels onto climax :
- incoming Science Officer Carol is found to be Admiral Marcus’ daughter
(and we see here : Alice Eve in bikini !)
- reverable Admiral Marcus is traitor
- 72 photon torpedoes each actually carry Kahn’s crew in suspended cryo sleep
several Easter Eggs including :
- OMG ! Chief Engineer Scotty infiltrates into the massive USS Vengeance !
- young Spock crys in tears ?!
- the /older/ Spock played by Leonard Nimoy makes /another/ cameo appearance
to illogically reveal secret to counter the mighty Kahn

Alas ! there is a second plot-twist :
- Captain Kirk die from radiation to save his ship USS Enterprise
- Super-Human Kahn survives after all
still again, there is a third ~ ofcourse to rationalize the original 1964 classic TV series
