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.
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.
During the reign of the Vikings, Kainan, a man from a far-off world, crash lands on Earth, bringing with him an alien predator known as the Moorwen. Though both man and monster are seeking revenge for violence committed against them, Kainan leads the alliance to kill the Moorwen by fusing his advanced technology with the Viking's Iron Age weaponry.
After the rebels have been brutally overpowered by the Empire on their newly established base, Luke Skywalker takes advanced Jedi training with Master Yoda, while his friends are pursued by Darth Vader as part of his plan to capture Luke.
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

From the writers that brought you Prometheus and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen comes an all new...Nope, wait, it's just bits of old story plus some hackneyed ideas. Incredible lack of imagination on show here, not that I could see much beyond the flares going off (Seriously, no one would be able to work on that bridge without sunnies). Perhaps either Spock could explain the logic of ripping off scenes that fans adore and will be annoyed by, just to show the same things to a bunch of people who couldn't care less? Certain story lines work because they are handled with care and because audiences have invested time in the characters. This crew, as yet, mean nothing to me. I've never had a chance to care for them because they spend most of the time running or jumping long distances. The emotions only work if you think back to the original films and that bridge is too wide. You can't tear up what went before and then expect to trade on the pieces. Aside from the names involved this iteration shares almost none of the DNA or ideals of the original series, and just sticking in a few references to the Prime Directive does not change that. And just how crap was the Peter Weller character? He might as well have started talking slang. P.S. Don't be surprised to find out Chewbacca is a wookiesexual and 3PO turns out to have been infused with the Emporer's DNA in Ep. 7. It's the right style for this guy (as his early Superman treatment confirms)...
