Mission: Impossible III director and Alias creator J.J. Abrams resurrects the classic science fiction franchise created by Gene Roddenberry with this feature film that embraces the rich history of the influential television and film series while also exploring some uncharted territory. Heroes star Zachary Quinto assumes the role of the Federation Starfleet lieutenant and Vulcan made famous in the original series by Leonard Nimoy (who also appears in an older incarnation of his original role), Spock, with Anton Yelchin stepping into the role of USS Enterprise navigator Pavel Chekov, Zoe Saldana assuming the role of communications officer Uhura, Simon Pegg keeping the ship in top shape as chief engineer Montgomery Scott (aka "Scotty"), and Eric Bana tormenting the benevolent space explorers as the villainous Nero. Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle co-star John Cho also boards the Enterprise as Hikaru Sulu, with Chris Pine and Karl Urban assuming the legendary roles of Captain Kirk and Leonard "Bones" McCoy, respectively. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Certainly Not Canon by Wedge9 March 18, 2013 - 10:26 PM PDT
I have to admit this was a lot of fun. But I also have a lot of issues with milking and twisting the Star Trek universe.

Most of the film's early scenes ride on your familiarity with the characters. It could have been a successful film without leeching off the series like that -- but of course, it wouldn't have been as easy a hit for the studio.

Grudgingly, I'll admit I had fun. But in the afterlife, I'll spend extra decades in Klingon Hell for that.

It's a good movie if you like Sci-Fi violence and conflict and action - but it's not Star Trek.

Gene Roddenberry's vision for Star Trek was a future world where war, disease, poverty and conflict were all left in the past. ST TOS and ST TNG were true to this vision. Then Gene died, and DS9 turned violent.

The original Star Trek got along just fine without revenge-driven world-destroying one-dimensional villains.

This film depicts Kirk as a rebellious thrill-seeking authority-rejecting hothead with no sense of restraint, judgement or balance. Maybe he was (will be?), but I would never allow this Kirk to command a starship - especially when he has yet to graduate from the academy!

If they had changed the names of the characters and not called it Star Trek I would have liked it much better.
