The brash James T. Kirk tries to live up to his father's legacy with Mr. Spock keeping him in check as a vengeful, time-traveling Romulan creates black holes to destroy the Federation one planet at a time.
After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction.
Clark Kent, one of the last of an extinguished race disguised as an unremarkable human, is forced to reveal his identity when Earth is invaded by an army of survivors who threaten to bring the planet to the brink of destruction.
As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.
Following clues to the origin of mankind a team journey across the universe and find a structure on a distant planet containing a monolithic statue of a humanoid head and stone cylinders of alien blood but they soon find they are not alone.
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

Russell Bobbitt tracked down a model of the original tricorder from Star Trek (1966) and brought it to the set, but the actors found it too large to carry for filming action scenes, so technical advisor Doug Brady redesigned it to be smaller. See more »
After the Narada comes through the black hole the next shot shows the bridge of the Kelvin and the red alert klaxon is playing. Next, the helmsman says "I have a reading, they've locked weapons on us." The captain then announces red alert even though the klaxon is already playing. See more »
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.

There are no opening credits in the film except for the title card, making this the second consecutive Star Trek film that does not list its cast at the beginning. See more »
that thing was .. really, really, really, really, .... good
Shortest 2+ hour movie I've seen in a long while. On the one hand you could criticize the director for creating identical clones of the original characters, on the other hand, you could praise the director for creating clones of the original characters, who were near perfect to begin with. To be a genuine Trekkie it seems you are obligated to dislike this film, but having seen all the episodes, I think this movie stayed true to the original. If the original moved at warp speed, this movie moved at warp 50. Sure there was some cheese, but who amongst us would deny the cheese factor of the original series. They even threw a green babe in there for good measure. That's what I call an homage.
