Trivia

Chekov spends much of the film in engineering rather than the bridge, so that he doesn't interact with Khan. This is in keeping with Star Trek: Space Seed (1967), which aired before Chekov was added to the cast. Ironically, Chekov is the only crew member Khan interacted with directly in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982). Khan's face-to-face interaction with the rest of the crew on board the Enterprise is a first since "Space Seed". See more »

J.J. Doesn't Get It
7 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know I'll sound like an old guy, but J.J. Abrams just doesn't get Star Trek. Maybe that's just fine because he is searching for a new and younger audience that probably doesn't get Star Trek either.

Star Trek was never about the special effects or action. Most of the best Trek stories from all of the television shows (TOS through Enterprise) didn't rely on either. Action and special effects were always there, but they were used to tell a story instead of becoming the story.

To be fair, there is one thing to like about the new Star Trek reboot. The cast is great, and it is easy to see the original actors through them. After that, I'm over this thing. It is just an action movie series using Star Trek's name to sell tickets.

If you think this is great science fiction in the Star Trek universe, then enjoy it. If you are looking for something more and want to really understand what Star Trek is about then queue up "Measure of a Man" from TNG, just one of many classic Star Trek episodes that expose this new "reboot" for the sham that it is. Gene Roddenberry would be ashamed.
