After stopping off at Starbase Yorktown, a remote outpost on the fringes of Federation space, the USS Enterprise, halfway into their five-year mission, is destroyed by an unstoppable wave of unknown aliens. With the crew stranded on an unknown planet and with no apparent means of rescue, they find themselves fighting against a ruthless enemy with a well-earned hatred of the Federation and everything it stands for. Only a rebellious alien warrior can help them reunite and leave the planet to stop this deadly menace from beginning a possible galactic war. Written by
In this film, James T. Kirk applies for promotion to vice admiral which he turns down because which he wishes to remain a Captain. This is a reference to the earlier Star Trek films. In Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979), Kirk has been promoted to Admiral following the five-year mission. In Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), Kirk remained an Admiral and was having a midlife crisis, McCoy believed that Kirk missed being a Captain and exploring the universe and advised Kirk to get back command of the Enterprise. In Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986), Kirk lost the rank of Admiral and became a Captain again for his actions in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984), which Kirk disobeyed a direct order from Admiral Morrow to go to the Genesis planet and recover Spock's body, which he hijacked and blew up the Enterprise. In Star Trek: Generations (1994), Kirk gave Captain Jean-Luc Picard advise on promotion and tells him not to let Starfleet promote him and not let anything take him away from the Captain's chair because while he is seated in the Captain's chair, he can make a difference.

The movie takes place inside a nebula, and we are indeed shown a nebula: a huge gas cloud. The characters even refer to the density of gas as they move through it. It also has some rocks and debris in it, but Star Trek nebulae often have rocks and debris in them. (Of course in real life, nebulae and asteroid fields would be indistinguishable from vacuum as far as a tiny starship is concerned.) See more »
The Gene Roddenberry's legacy is nowhere to find in this film. This Star Trek movie feels more as a Marvel Comics flick than a Star Trek movie. One- dimensional characters, a whirlwind of imagery, a meager story and over the top villains and hero's.
A true Star Trek movie for me is one with a nice story, sound science, a spec of humor, real characters, and last but not least; always in search of the human condition. Star trek is more than the sum of episodes and movies, its a way of thinking, and inspired millions of people -personal and professional- to make the world a better place. The brightest people off all humanity, like Stephen Hawking, NASA scientists, all love Star Trek.
If Director Justin Lin had seen all of the Star Trek series and movies, he would never made such a terrible -for me- horrible movie.
