Item Details

On the day of James Kirk's birth, his father dies on his ship in a last stand against a mysterious alien vessel. He was searching for Ambassador Spock, who is a child on Vulcan, disdained by his neighbors for his half-human nature. Twenty years later, Kirk has grown into a young troublemaker. He is inspired by Capt. Christopher Pike to fulfill his potential in Starfleet, even though he annoys his instructors. Suddenly, there is an emergency on Vulcan when the Romulan Nero comes from the future to take revenge on the Federation. The newly commissioned USS Enterprise is crewed with promising cadets like Uhura, Sulu, Chekov and even Kirk himself thanks to Leonard McCoy's medical trickery. Together, this crew will travel to the final frontier where the old legend is altered forever.

This particular copy, 1 out of 14 copies, of this item that I had borrowed from the library does have glitches with and without commentary. Therefore, I did could not see the film in its entirety. The special effects were excellent and the cast did a very good job in the film. It was really nice seeing Leonard Nimoy in the role that he had originated in the original Star Trek TV series.

This is one of two prequels. The other is even worse.
I shouldn't say worse: if you like standard american hammy swaggering/saving-the-day, plus cg rocket ships and ray guns, this is a fine example.
Lots of people love hot dogs.

A fantastic introduction to the "new" characters with enough trekkie history to satisfy the "crazy" crowd (get a life people!?).

There's just one thing I don't get. Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, nurse Christine Chapel, in TOS was the love interest for Spock, so why did they choose Nyota Uhura as the love interest? OMG that's too trekkie - who cares!

Conclusion: watch it. It's entertaining.

So, sure the plot had some lazy implausibilities, and even a layman knows black holes don’t work like that, but damn if this isn’t pretty sweet anyway. It is a basically just a big budget action movie full of fan service to the original, but it is well made, has a great cast and is pretty much just a whole lot of fun.

It is logical to conclude that the quality of this cinematic prequel will ensure that the Star Trek franchise will continue to live long and prosper.

I saw this in the theater when I was 12 and found it a bit of a bore. I wanted there to be more action sequences and excitement.

This movie is a great reboot to the old ones! the cast they have picket out really get in to their characters. Really love captain kirk

Wow, awesome! I must admit, I have seen the first Star Trek movie and was somewhat impressed, but wished it could go faster. I may be more of a Star Wars fan, but this movie is awesome! Definetly recommend watching, Love Chekov!

Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: "I may throw up on ya." James T. Kirk: "I think these things are pretty safe." Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: "Don't pander to me, kid. One tiny crack in the hull and our blood boils in thirteen seconds. Solar flare might crop up, cook us in our seats. And wait'll you're sitting pretty with a case of Andorian shingles, see if you're still so relaxed when your eyeballs are bleeding. Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence." James T. Kirk: "Well, I hate to break this to you, but Starfleet operates in space." Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: "Yeah. Well, I got nowhere else to go. The ex-wife took the whole damn planet in the divorce. All I got left is my 'bones'." (sips out of his flask, hands it to Kirk)

Flight Officer: "...You need a doctor." Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: "I told you people I don't need a doctor, dammit -- I AM a doctor!" Flight Officer: "You need to get back to your seat." Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: "I had one. In the bathroom with no windows." Flight Officer: "You need to get back in your seat, NOW." Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: "I suffer from aviophobia -- it means fear of dying in something that flies!" Flight Officer: "Sir, for your own safety, sit down or else I'll make you sit down!"

James T. Kirk (after getting reamed by Spock): "Who was that pointy-eared bastard?" Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: "I don't know, but I like him."

Spock: "...Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Her ongoing mission: to explore strange new worlds... To seek out new life-forms and new civilizations... To boldly go where no one has gone before."
