Contains three references to Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991). Uhura uses her fluency in Klingon, quite contrary to her fumbling through a dictionary in the previous film. During Kirk and Spock's absence, Sulu is given command of the Enterprise. In the earlier film, he commands his own ship. Dr. McCoy complains that he is a doctor, "not a torpedo technician". In the earlier film, he and Spock together modify a torpedo. See more »
Blood transfusions occur more than once in this film. A dead "tribble' receives the 'super-blood' of one of the film's antagonists, and it revives. Since it's blood is no longer flowing,I can't figure out how a dead entity would benefit from a transfusion. How would the introduction of any fluid benefit something already dead. Even if we ignore this event, a super-human to human transfusion occurs on at least two other occasions (I can think of). First is the treasonous and loving father "Thomas Harewood", uses "Khan's" super-blood to cure his dying daughter, then "Captain Kirk" is resurrected after receiving the same blood. Are we to assume that all parties have blood that matches "Khan's" blood. See more »
Given the large vast and rich world of the Star Trek universe I am appalled at the inconsistent and bad writing of Star Trek into the darkness. I wonder if the writers actually read the whole script from front to end before submitting it.
It's like scenes were written just for the visuals and then loosely written and linked together. When the viewer watches the movie it's visually stunning, it's when the viewer stops and thinks that the movie falls apart.
The only thing that makes this movie bearable is the great soundtrack.
As a viewer if you liked the first reboot movie and could wrap your head around the convenient bad writing of that plot you'll probably like this one. But if you're looking for a movie with more substance I recommend watching Star Trek: the wrath of khan.
