The brash James T. Kirk tries to live up to his father's legacy with Mr. Spock keeping him in check as a vengeful Romulan from the future 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.
On the eve of retirement, Kirk and McCoy are charged with assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor and imprisoned. The Enterprise crew must help them escape to thwart a conspiracy aimed at sabotaging the last best hope for peace.
The Borg travel back in time intent on preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochrane makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
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
Make-up Artist Barney Burman supervised the make-up for the aliens in the film. His team had to rush the creation of many of the aliens, because originally, the majority of them were to feature in one major scene (to express the variety of life in the universe). However, towards the end of filming, J.J. Abrams deemed the scene too similar to the Star Wars: Episode IV cantina sequence, and decided to dot the designs around the film. See more »
If one drop of red matter created a black hole in a super nova, the whole container of it would have created much bigger in Nero's shift. 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.

The first part of the closing credits is styled after the opening credits of Star Trek (1966), where the starship Enterprise blasts off into space as a monologue describes its mission, and then the cast names appear as the famous "Star Trek" theme music plays. See more »
I'm not a trekkie by any means. I have only seen two Star Trek movies in my life. When I was young, I watched the one where they go to San Francisco (back in time) to save the whales. I watched this a few times. I also watched Star Trek First Contact a few times. I liked both of those movies because the struggles of the characters felt authentic. It felt like space combined with the dramas we face in real life, but put into a science fiction, almost super natural light.
This Star Trek merely wants you to go weeeee, uppppp, downnnnn. It's like a ride. Don't we have enough of this? Honestly, are people really impressed by twenty minute action/explosion scenes?
There were some tense and good moments, especially with Spock, but overall, really not that interesting, and I'm sorry to say I don't have very high hopes for Star Wars because J.J. Abrams seems more concerned with gloss and sheen than true style and spirit
