The brash James T. Kirk tries to live up to his father's legacy with Mr. Spock keeping him in check as a vengeful Romulan from the future creates black holes to destroy the Federation one planet at a time.
After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction.
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.
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 Cochran makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
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
At first, many fans expected this movie would be a prequel to the original Star Trek (1966) series, set several years before the events of Star Trek: The Cage (1986) and Star Trek: Where No Man Has Gone Before (1966). However, due to the time travel plot device, the film and its sequels, are now set in an alternate timeline that is separate from the original timeline (which is depicted in the previous five out of six television series, and ten movies. Star Trek: Enterprise's timeline remains uneffected). This current timeline and cinematic universe was initially nicknamed "Alternate Timeline", "Abramsverse" (after J.J. Abrams), and "Alternate Original Series", but it was officially named "Kelvin Timeline" in 2016 by Michael Okuda and Denise Okuda, long-time collaborators on the series. "Kelvin" is a clear reference to the destruction of the U.S.S. Kelvin in the beginning of the movie, which is the point in time where the two universes diverged. See more »
During the countdown at the beginning of the movie when Captain Kirk is on the collision course, as it counts down from 18 seconds, it actually takes longer for it to impact than 18 seconds. See more »
U.S.S. Kelvin, go for Starfleet Base.
Kelvin Crew Member:
Starfleet Base, we've sent you a transmission. Did you receive?
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.
What you've sent us doesn't seem possible.
Kelvin Crew Member:
Yes ma'am. I understand. That's why we sent it.

There are no opening credits in the film except for the title card, making this the second consecutive Star Trek film that does not list its cast at the beginning. See more »
Hollywood Hack JJ Abrams Boldly Goes Where The Studio Accountants Want him To Go
This film is so stupid, so tacky, so cheesy and so non-Star Trek that one has to ask: 'Does JJ Abrams even know what Star Trek is?' or 'Does JJ Abrams have any familiarity with Star Trek?'
What does this guy have on Hollywood bosses that they let him rip and tear films like this?
The cheap effects just compound the problem.
