Trivia

Like the previous movie, this one also contains a reference to Nurse Chapel of the original series (played by Majel Barrett) - interestingly, this callback breaks continuity with Star Trek as in that movie McCoy is heard addressing a "Nurse Chapel" (who replies from off-screen), whereas in this one we get the impression that Christine Chapel became a nurse following an encounter with Kirk in the interim between the two movies (since Kirk and Uhura did not know each other before Star Trek (2009), the reference to a common acquaintance is unlikely to refer to someone from before that point in time).

Goofs

When the Enterprise's trash exhaust port is first shown, it's about half-way up the secondary hull and has sliding panels on either side of it. Almost two minutes later, the panels are missing and the exhaust port appears to be farther down and forward. See more »

Boldly Going Where It shouldn't
20 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film has lots of special effects; lens flares (again?!), odd camera angles, new props, and lots of loud noise. What the film lacks is a script that makes any sense and scenes that are offensive, useless, and contradict previous scenes minutes earlier. It is obvious that JJ Abrams and the writers don't care about the franchise as anything other than a way to make money. I won't give away any of the plot, because there really isn't one in this film. It rips off two other Star Trek films from the 1980s and is very badly written throughout the entire time the film is running. I won't be seeing any more films by this director, as he appears to believe and has stated that he wants this Star Trek to be remembered over the others. Believe me, this is one person who will remember the 2009 and 2013 films as being the worst ever made in the history of Star Trek. Save your money, don't see this film and don't buy the DVD.
