Storyline

On the day of James T. Kirk's birth, his father dies on his damaged starship in a last stand against a Romulan mining vessel looking for Ambassador Spock, who in this time, has grown on Vulcan disdained by his neighbors for his half-human heritage. 25 years later, James T. Kirk has grown into a young rebellious troublemaker. Challenged by Captain Christopher Pike to realize his potential in Starfleet, he comes to annoy academy instructors like Commander Spock. Suddenly, there is an emergency on Vulcan and the newly-commissioned USS Enterprise is crewed with promising cadets like Nyota Uhura, Hikaru Sulu, Pavel Chekov and even Kirk himself, thanks to Leonard McCoy's medical trickery. Together, this crew will have an adventure in the final frontier where the old legend is altered forever as a new version of the legend begins. Written by Paramount Pictures

Goofs

When Kirk convinces Pike and Spock that they are heading into a trap as they warp towards Vulcan, Kirk refers to '47 Klingon Warbirds destroyed by Romulans.' Though "Warbirds" are usually Romulan vessels within the Star Trek: The Original Series canon, the same name has been used for Klingon vessels even in the original timeline, e.g. in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Kelvin Crew Member: Starfleet Base, we've sent you a transmission. Did you receive?
Starfleet Base: Kelvin, have you double-checked those readings?
Kelvin Crew Member: Our gravitational sensors are going crazy here. You should see this. It looks like a lightning storm.
Starfleet Base: What you've sent us doesn't seem possible.
Kelvin Crew Member: Yes ma'am. I understand. That's why we sent it.

Crazy Credits

The first part of the closing credits is styled after the opening credits of Star Trek: The Original Series (1966), where the starship Enterprise blasts off into space as a monologue describes its mission, and then the cast names appear as the famous "Star Trek" theme music plays. See more »

What Does JJ Abrams Have On The Hollywood Brass?
2 July 2018 | by m-48664See all my reviews

I know he is the Hollywood brass now, but what does this supreme hack have on the Hollywood brass that makes them give him all these assignments? Does he have compromising photos? Is his new wife (now that he is divorced) one of them? Does he have a gun he points at people? JJ Abrams is such an unoriginal, uncreative tool yet he gets to rip off Spielberg, gets Star Trek, gets Star Wars and more and yet he is so devoid of any integrity, any clue about the projects and brings no merit to his work. Star Trek is here turned to Star Wars (but a bad one), Star Wars was destroyed by our buddy JJ here and everything else he touches is a script from the treasury department. How does Mr Rip Off operate?
