Samuel L. Jackson,
On the day of James Kirk's birth, his father dies on his damaged starship in a last stand against a Romulan mining vessel looking for Ambassador Spock, who in this time, has grown on Vulcan disdained by his neighbors for his half-human heritage. 25 years later, James T. Kirk has grown into a young rebellious troublemaker. Challenged by Captain Christopher Pike to realize his potential in Starfleet, he comes to annoy academy instructors like Commander Spock. Suddenly, there is an emergency on 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 the legend begins. Written by

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 »
The problem with this movie are the characters. Nimoy and Shatner in the original play were shining young, but mature enough to manage such a legendary trip to deep space. Here we see a bunch of teenagers; trying to look mature for the same role. And they failed. You cannot send a ship with teenager captain, it looks ridiculous. At any moment it felt like they want to jump on the bridge, catch a few guitars and sing rock songs, or have a tattoo party in deep space...No disrespect, but Chris Pine and Zachary cannot compare to Shatner and Nimoy in any way. Perhaps if the director brought some exact look-alike it may have succeeded. watching Zachary playing a teenage Vulcan and painting that serous look on his face is totally ironic.....I wasted 15 minutes and did not bother to watch further.
This is another example of declining quality in Hollywood.
