This film's plot is almost similar to a rejected outline for Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991), which was written by Walter Koenig, which Spock and the new Enterprise crew are captured by a race of worm-like aliens and Captain Kirk and the old crew are forced out of retirement to rescue them.

When Kirk takes a seat in the USS Franklin, he buckles up with old fashioned hip seat belts. In the next shot, he suddenly has the newer shoulder chain-like seat belts The shoulder belts were there the whole time, he simply hadn't put them on yet; they cut away to other characters as Kirk put the shoulder belts on.

Like the original series (fun, funny, serious, touching, exciting, imaginative, awesome)
Spoiler free review: I was lucky to go to the premiere in San Diego at comic con... the night was amazing but it ended with a super fun movie. That's the best word to describe it... fun.
The difference with the past 2 Trek movies was that unlike the original films we didn't bond with this cast over 100 or 200 episodes of slower paced TV. These guys were just tossed into it. This movie gives us an idea what a show with them would be like. It's impossible of course to do. But it was such a nice break form the overreaching drama from Into Darkness.
This is still serious and has tearful moments and sincere motivations from characters... but it's also fun. Some people forget the original trek as Justin Lin told the crowd at the premiere that the original series was fun. It was funny. It was a pure comedy at times. and he's right. This movie takes all the elements the series was... (serious, funny, action, fantasy) and mixes it into one giant movie. Including the Shatner like fist fight.
Dialogue from Simon Pegg and Doug Jung was absolutely natural to the characters and everyone had their moments. The scenes of different characters sharing moments with each other was great.
New characters Jayla is terrific. Sofia was great in the part.
It's sort of a typical Justin Lin movie too as in the set pieces, action scenes fx were simply amazing... breathless... the character moments fantastic, warm, sweet... the story was very good but some holes and confusion at times but it's so worth having that for the pure fun this is.
