It’s a simple rule that you don’t fix something if it isn’t broken, and voice-overs that add drama work very nicely for Star Trek Into Darkness, as Kirk’s mentor warns of a lethal fall in his future.

When we got our first look at Star Trek back in 2008, we were led into the rebooted universe by Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood) daring a young, brash James Kirk to become the man Pike believes he can be.

Star Trek Into Darkness once again brings us wisdom from Pike as he warns, “There’s greatness in you, but there’s not an ounce of humility. You think you can’t make mistakes. But there will come a moment when you realize you’re wrong about that.”

Of course, a captain of a starship can’t make mistakes without people dying, and Pike’s insightful speech also spells that out for Kirk. »
