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.
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
Simon Pegg cited Jennifer Lawrence's character Ree Dolly in Winter's Bone (2010) as the inspiration behind Jaylah. In the film, Ree (Lawrence) a 17-year-old girl goes into the harsh Ozark wilderness to find her missing drug dealer father. See more »
During the final assault, Spock states that there are 3 ships (Krall's ship and the attached "drill" ships) entering Yorktown. However, the initial attack on the Enterprise would lead us to believe there are four ships; Krall's and three attached drillers, not two as Spock's statement suggests. The only way this could be true is if one was destroyed, and this is never explicitly shown. See more »
Not really Star Trek. To JJ: Your audience is smarter than action and explosions.
Disappointed with this entry in the series. Star Trek to me isn't about motorcycles and loud music, it's more about exploring science fiction concepts and themes through great storytelling (which this film has very little of). The "twist" at the end is figured out about a 1/3 of the way in. Lazy storytelling where props are laid for action scenes for no apparent reason (why is there a motorcycle aboard a starship?).
On the plus side, the cast is magnificent and the charm they bring to their roles makes this enterprise watchable. It's too bad the script and direction don't give them much to do. Mr. Lin, while a good action director, isn't a good storyteller. While that's good for the Fast & Furious franchise, Star Trek deserves better.
