A military officer is brought into an alien war against an extraterrestrial enemy who can reset the day and know the future. When this officer is enabled with the same power, he teams up with a Special Forces warrior to try and end the war.
On the day of James Kirk's birth, his father dies on his ship in a last stand against a mysterious alien time-traveling vessel looking for Ambassador Spock, who, in this time, is also a child on Vulcan disdained by his neighbors for his half-human heritage. Twenty-five years later, Kirk has grown into a young troublemaker. Challenged by Captain Christopher Pike to realize his potential in Starfleet, he comes to annoy instructors like young Commander Spock. Suddenly, there is an emergency at Vulcan and the newly commissioned USS Enterprise is crewed with promising cadets like Nyota Uhura, Hikaru Sulu, Pavel Chekov and even Kirk himself, thanks to Leonard McCoy's medical trickery. Together, this crew will have an adventure in the final frontier where the old legend is altered forever as a new version of it begins. Written by

Karl Urban was cast at his first audition, which was two months after his initial meeting with J.J. Abrams. He said he was happy to play a role with lots of comedy, something he had not done since The Price of Milk (2000), because he was fed-up of action-oriented roles. See more »
Mr. Scott says he had a transporter mishap with "Admiral Archer's prized beagle". The series Star Trek: Enterprise with Archer was set around 100 years before the events of the movie. The Scotty scene takes place in 2258. Enterprise was set in 2151-2155 meaning Archer would be around 140-150 years old. Star Trek writer Roberto Orci went on record to clear up the issue: "Admiral Archer is a reference to the Archer we all know and love, from the TV series and yes he would be over 100, which is a likely life expectancy in a futuristic space faring race of humans" (as depicted by McCoy in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Encounter at Farpoint.)

U.S.S. Kelvin, go for Starfleet Base.
Kelvin Crew Member:
Starfleet Base, we've sent you a transmission. Did you receive?
Kelvin, have you double-checked those readings?
Kelvin Crew Member:
Our gravitational sensors are going crazy here. You should see this. It looks like a lightning storm.
What you've sent us doesn't seem possible.
Kelvin Crew Member:
Yes ma'am. I understand. That's why we sent it.

Please, show of hands, fan boys? How many have even watched TOS? Even one episode maybe between cartoons? None of the characterizations were even remotely close. See, there is an empirical differential between impassivity, look it up, and very bad acting. Quinto is not insouciant; Quinto sucks as an actor. Believe it or not, Spock would not have an open sexual relationship with Uhura known to everyone on board. Please, you are embarrassing yourself. Why not have him disco dancing with a leisure suit on? Bones does not repeat metaphors or similes every five minutes. See, that is not clever, that is retarded. Chekhov's accent was very slight; here it is parodied to the point of Monty Python; which, by the way, is the best delineation of Lobotomy Boy's movie. Now, why does Scotty, inexplicably with a pet troll, beam someone light years away at high warp? Look, if it sounds absurd to an existentialist philosopher, how about to anyone with more science? It gets worse, Spock, in the biggest plot contrivance ever written, ejects Kirk onto an ice moon, where, coincidentally, both Spock: The Fossil Years and Scotty with troll are residing. That wasn't enough for Brain Dead boy, no, Kirk, in a miracle of synchronicity, is rescued from Jurassic boy by Spock, who just happened to be in that very spot, at this moment, on the whole moon. Do you know what Starfleet would have done to Pointy?
Does JJ take strong sedating medicines? Was the screenwriter his grandson, four years old? Does the person who wrote this use coloring books? I dare anyone to explain Nero's time-line with a trace of coherence? Could the time-line not require Stephen Hawking to explain it to us? Same thing in the new crappy Terminator, idiots strive for obscurity to cloak their idiocy. Pine's Kirk, you know High Forehead Neanderthal boy, is such an insult. He was was neither a juvenile delinquent nor a feckless, impulsive, castrated retard. Humanism, Abrams, put down your comic books, the bong and look the word up? Roddenberry said he created Star Trek to teach humanism. True, no skull crushing or knee stomping here; that is what makes it infinitesimally better than Star Crap: Into Moral Darkness. Yet, the movie is devoid of the cheesy, self pleasuring flattery that was Gene Roddenberry. Look, I am a misanthropist, but the man is dead: leave his freaking work alone!
I love with the fan boys acting like Darkness was an anomaly and this is the sacred treasure: no, it is minutely less awful. It is as life affirming and humanistic as a James Bond movie. The writing, acting, and non stop treasures that say JJ Abrams: Screaming, Kung Fu, shootings, eternal space battles, brainless 4th grade dialog, incoherent plot: Yes, how like Stanley Kubrick this idiot is. If I were related to Roddenberry, I would be getting a litigator. I concur with the others: THIS IS NOT STAR TREK.
