Storyline

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 Paramount Pictures

At the end, Spock is looking through Spock Prime's personal effects and finds a picture of the crew from Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. How did Spock Prime come by this picture? He traveled through a wormhole on a ship that was designed to destroy a supernova with Red Matter. Did Spock Prime live on the ship? Was this his home? Or did he carry this picture in his pocket? Once he went through the wormhole, he lost everything personal that he owned, he could not go back for anything. See more »

Star Trek has officially jumped the shark as a franchise.
30 April 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The new, alternate-universe film saga's characters are pale reflections of their bona fide counterparts in the various Star Trek series and some of the previous films from the good old days. They are those characters in name only, aside from that they're just nods to the originals with none of the depth.

Star Trek has had a more sophisticated audience, in general, than your average sci-fi action schlock. As fans, we've come to expect more from Trek in the form of rich character development, important social issues, myriad complex and plots and subplots.

This movie shatters those expectations.

We catch James T. Kirk et al in the middle of their erstwhile 5-year mission as they encounter an alien armada which rapidly decimates the Enterprise. So many unremarkable tropes variously reused, rehashed, reintroduced. So many unremarkable characters presented, showcased, finalized.

The motion-sickness-inducing action inspires nothing but nausea. The shallow interplay between all characters, protagonists and antagonists alike, is bland and uninspired. This is action schlock.

The action is decent. Following the captain and crew's moronic, illogical thought process, the destruction of the Enterprise is unsurprising and fantastically action-packed. The various combat and grunt-laden melee is visceral and satisfying. Beyond (hah) that, there's nothing.

This new Scotty still has his oddly petite alien bromance. Uhura and Spock show they still care for one another. Kirk shows a desire to keep galloping around the galaxy in a starship rather than becoming a stodgy Vice Admiral stationed on Earth. Anton Yelchin gives his final performance before Daimler-Chrysler's poor engineering and quality control seal the actor's doom.

This is NOT Star Trek. This is as much Star Trek as a human reincarnated in the holodeck is truly human. I honestly hope the upcoming series will redeem it, but that hope fades like the Enterprise in this lame duck effort.
