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.
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
During Chekov's emergency beam-out, the transporter room symbol graphic is the same scheme design used from the Enterprise set of the 1980s films. See more »
When Kirk and Spock beam aboard the Romulan vessel Spock leans down to perform a mind meld on one of the fallen Romulans. You can clearly see Spock's right hand with a deep scratch revealing RED blood as opposed to green. 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.

Abrams has boldly done what no man has done before
And that is reinventing the Star Trek franchise, and giving it new life.
Supposedly, according to some people's opinions, this tells of the early days of Kirk and Spock as if it is an origins story of Kirk and Spock. It could be taken this way. I, however, prefer to look at it actually as a continuation of the old franchise for reasons I will talk about later.
Let me just say that everyone that was a part of this film deserves a round of applause. The acting and the behind the scenes work (all of it) was spot on, and I couldn't find any reason to not give this film a 10/10.
Let me talk about the acting, because, while I could go on and on about the action scenes and the special effects, it's really the acting that stood out in this. Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto: I can imagine what it's like for you guys to take on enormous roles as Kirk and Spock. Great job, you guys; you have made new fans of the series, and the old fans are proud of you guys.
There are actually quite a lot of well-known actors and actresses here, but that doesn't deter the film, as it does in other films. We have John Cho playing helmsman Hikaru Sulu; Ben Cross as Spock's father, Sarek; Bruce Greenwood as USS Commanding Officer Pike; Simon Pegg as Chief Engineer Montgomery "Scotty" Scot; Winona Ryder as Spock's mother Amanda Greyson; Zoe Saldana as Chief Communications Officer Uhura; Karl Urban as Chief Medical Officer McCoy; Anton Yelchin as USS Navigator and security/tactical officer Chekov; Eric Bana as Captain Nero; And... get ready, because a bomb is coming... Leonard Nimoy as Spock Prime! That's right! Leonard Nimoy! Quinto must have been shaking in his boots at the thought of portraying Spock in front of Spock (literally!)! I know I would have. A great job to everyone here; you all did your job well.
There is a lot of action, but before that happens, we see a little bit of back story to the Spock and Kirk characters, and because we get to know them, we start to care about them.
Overall, it's a great film that gives more life to a classic series with humour, action, a great story, great acting, and some very pleasing special effects. This will please the usual Trekkie fan, and perhaps gain new ones. A solid 10/10 for me.
