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.
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.
In 2074, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent into the past, where a hired gun awaits - someone like Joe - who one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by sending back Joe's future self for assassination.
As the Clone Wars near an end, the Sith Lord Darth Sidious steps out of the shadows, at which time Anakin succumbs to his emotions, becoming Darth Vader and putting his relationships with Obi-Wan and Padme at risk.
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

voice-over of James' stepfather. Grunberg was considered for the role of pimping con man Harry Mudd, who was in an early draft of the script but was eventually written out. Then Grunberg was considered to play Olson, but due to a scheduling conflict had to drop out of the film. See more »
In the fight on the drill's platform, which is at an extremely high altitude, Kirk and Sulu remove their helmets. On Earth, humans would find it very difficult to breathe at that height without supplemental oxygen; in Trek mythology, Vulcan's atmosphere is thinner than Earth's. It was an acceptable practice, when visiting or residing on Vulcan, to receive an injection of a Tri-ox compound to assist in breathing (Star Trek: Amok Time). Knowing that they would be fighting on Vulcan at a high altitude, it seems logical that the away team would be given a similar injection (considering McCoy's penchant for injecting Kirk on the fly), though it was not shown on screen.

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.

Before analyzing Star Trek, a few words: In the theater, skeptically, I waited for it to begin. Within minutes, I felt time-warped! A little kid, mesmerized by Forbidden Planet; a teen-ager, totally awed by 2001; a young adult, blown away by Star Wars! If you don't like this Star Trek, do yourself a favor: forget about the Sci-Fi/Action genre for life!
O.K Where to begin? On almost every imaginable level, Star Trek really works! Solid character development, well, at least for this genre. Stunning, imaginative, cleverly original and, at times, even dazzlingly artistic special effects. An intensely engaging story-line, that manages to pay homage to all that has gone before, but, at the same time presents multi-faceted character and plot elements few of us could have imagined beforehand.
Let's just say there is something in this for everyone! So, without any spoilers, (Well, maybe an extremely MINOR SPOILER.....!)
Glimpses of Kirk & Spock in their youth, both rebellious in different ways. Hints of romance between major characters, previously unsuspected. Kirk & Spock starting out as rivals, but becoming friends as a result of an ingenious plot twist! Extremely well-conceived & orchestrated action sequences will make you feel as if you'd been catapulted into hyper-drive! Whether or not you liked Star Trek in the past, you MUST treat yourself to this experience! 10 Intergalactic STARS......ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!
