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 Romulan from the future creates black holes to destroy the Federation one planet at a time.
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.
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.
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.
When the USS Enterprise crew 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 space 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.

In the movie theatre I heard a complaint from an old school Trekkie
that the second installment of the Star Trek reboot had too many
"Little Archie and Veronica" moments.
This is true and it would be OK if that were just the icing on the
cake. The real problem with the movie is that it runs like a typical
SciFi action plot inserted under a Star Trek banner.
This movie is missing the hallmark epiphany moments Star Trek is famous
for. Mainly, it is missing the philosophical "WOW" factors that don't
just blow your mind but rather expands it, making you realise that
everything you thought you knew is wrong and that everything you
thought the Federation had figured out is also wrong. These expansions
used to pave the way for the audience to mentally and emotionally take
that next step to, "Boldly go where no man has gone before..."
This movie has no epiphany. Where is the deepness that Star Trek is
synonymous with? This movie gives us what? A federation struggling with
internal corruption and terrorism, a la the typical disgruntled ex
employee, who in this case was cryogenics frozen for 300 years, as is
the plot. Big deal. These are familiar themes we've all seen in movies
before. Just trade the Federation for any corrupt financial, medical,
educational, government and or religious institution. Trade the "John
Harrison" character for any Bond villain and you have a movie that
sounds like a bunch of other movies or what the news broadcasts.
To me the Federation meant a time in the future when Humanity had
finally gotten its act together and to a certain extent had rooted out
all this corruption and terrorism. Unless a Klingon or Romulan shows
up, things are supposed to be refreshingly illuminating. Not something
that degrades into ordinary, mainstream, average caveman fist fight
How can we boldly go where no man has gone before in the future unless
we have thrown off the shackles of the past? What a sad/shamey day it
is when a Star Trek movie presents a not so optimistic future just as
dark as today's headlines. I can read/watch the news/The Matrix if I
want that. IS THERE NO ESCAPE?!!! IS THERE NO HOPE?!!!
Obviously, Gene Roddenberry's spirit could not find a way to keep the
franchise on track. Will, (Vulcan fingers crossed) Trekkies and
non-Trekkies alike know the difference between the wealth of deepness
and the poverty of darkness?
