- Following Spock and Scott's advice, Kirk decides to arrest Harrison and bring him to a tribunal instead of killing him. (Star Trek Into Darkness)
- The USS Enterprise's warp core breaks down just before it arrives at Qo'noS. Kirk leads an away team with Spock and Uhura to find Harrison. They are intercepted by Klingons patrolling the region, who respond to negotiations by trying to murder Uhura. Harrison intervenes, killing the Klingons, and then allows himself to be taken in by Kirk. (Star Trek Into Darkness)
- On a nearby planetoid, following Harrison's suggestion, McCoy and Marcus disarm one of the long-range missiles, and discover a cryotube, containing a fully-preserved human, is inside. Meanwhile, in Sector 001, Scott, having been relayed coordinates by Kirk, discover the secret base where the USS Vengeance is under construction. (Star Trek Into Darkness)
- Harrison reveals he is Khan Noonien Singh, and explains he tried to smuggle his fellow Augments from the SS Botany Bay in the torpedoes but was forced to flee when he was discovered. (Star Trek Into Darkness)
- The Enterprise is intercepted by the Vengeance, captained by Admiral Marcus, who demands Khan be handed over immediately. The Enterprise attempts to escape at warp, but the Vengeance pursues them, and fires it out of the warp stream at Luna. (Star Trek Into Darkness)
- Marcus beams up his daughter and orders the Enterprise's destruction, but Scott deactivates the Vengeance's weapons. Kirk and Khan skydive onboard the Vengeance, where they are received by Scott.
- Spock contacts the old Spock on New Vulcan, and after listening to his recollection of his confrontations with Khan Noonien Singh, orders McCoy to remove the cryotubes from the torpedoes.
- On the Vengeance's bridge, Khan overpowers Scott and Kirk, and kills Admiral Marcus. Khan, now in control of the Vengeance, requests his crew in exchange for Kirk, Scott and Carol, or he will use the ship's remaining power to destroy the Enterprise, causing it to fall towards Earth. Spock oblidges, and Khan beams back the three Enterprise crew members, but resumes firing anyway.
- Spock has the torpedoes detonated, crippling the Vengeance. Both damaged ships begin falling to Earth. Kirk enters the radiation-flooded warp core, and is able to repair it, narrowly saving the Enterprise, but at the cost of his life. (Star Trek Into Darkness)
- Khan deliberately pilots the Vengeance towards San Francisco, crashing it in the city center. Khan survives, and flees through San Francisco. However, he is apprehended by Spock and Uhura. (Star Trek Into Darkness)
