When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find that an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving the world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction.

Opinion

From Library Staff

At first I was totally against this reboot, but after watching it, I'm happy!!! Thank you Mr. Abrams!

I almost didn't add this one. At first I was upset about the complete rehash of another Trek movie, but upon multiple viewings I believe I DO like it. It's also the last time we'll see Spock Prime :(

The story line was not bad and it was a fairly good movie but to quote what Ben_Solo said "there are some inappropriate scenes" wrong. there are a LOT of inappropriate scenes i am giving a 1 1/2 star only because of the good story line I don't like how kirk was practically searching to have sex it was not good in the beginning not highly recommended

Star Trek (2009) is pretty good. There were a few inappropriate scenes, but not many, and we just skipped them. I love stories that have time paradoxes, like this one.
*Spoiler Alert*
A sun exploded, and was going to destroy a planet. Spock promises to save the planet, by creating a black hole that will suck the super nova in. He is too late, and the only survivors attack him in search of revenge. Both Spock and the attackers get pulled into the black hole, and come out in the past. The Romulans come out first. They attack the first ship they meet, thinking Spock is on it. He isn't, but Jim Kirk's dad is, as is his pregnant mom. The mom gets away on an escape pod, and gives birth to Jim as his dad sacrifices the ship and himself to buy the escapees time to get away. Jim grows up without his dad, but ends up joining Starfleet anyways. He joins the Enterprise, and they leave to help the planet Vulcan, which has gone into radio silence, with an electrical storm in space nearby. About this time, Spock finally comes out of the black hole, only to be captured by the Romulans, whose captain is Nero. The fact about the storm warns Jim, who warns the captain of the Enterprise that it's an attack by Nero and his Romulans. They are the only ship out of the seven that comes out of warp speed prepared for attack, and therefore the only ones to escape. They watch in horror, as the Roans turn Vulcan into a black hole. They lose their captain, and young Spock becomes captain. Jim thinks they should chase the Roans, but Spock says no. When Jim protests, Spock puts him on a planet, where he meets future Spock, and then Scotty. Future Spock gives Scotty the equation that Scotty supposedly came up with for beaming onto a ship moving at warp speed. They beam onto the Enterprise, where Jim shows that young Spock is "mentally unstable", and therefore unfit for being captain. Young Spock resigns as captain, and Jim takes over. They go after Nero, and young Spock and Jim beam onto Nero's ship, as he prepares to turn Earth into a black hole as well. There is an epic fight scene, they rescue the Enterprise's old captain, and young Spock finds future Spock's ship, which has the "red matter" which makes the black holes. Young Spock takes the ship, and lures Nero away from Earth, and then sets the ship on a collision course with Nero's ship. At the last second, Scotty beams Spock, Jim, and the old captain onto the Enterprise, as Nero's ship gets turned into a black hole. The Enterprise barely escapes the black hole, and then goes home to Earth, where they are celebrated as heroes. Young Spock meets future Spock. All ends happily ever after. Or does it?

What a great comment Twiggzette wrote for Star Trek (2009). I completely agree with this review (and all the others that gave valid reasons for why it's not just a bad movie, but also a bad Star Trek movie). The plot is bare-bones and there is no theme. This movie merely uses the names of the original characters of Star Trek and the star ship called the Enterprise, and therefore it is Star Trek. Wrong! It's not Star Trek at all. It makes a mockery of Star Trek. (So does Star Trek V, unfortunately, but that is another story...). Kirk becomes captain of the Enterprise almost as soon as he becomes part of the crew. Idiotic! Bad guy from the future destroys the planet Vulcan and the Enterprise does NOT try to go back in time to prevent its destruction? And Spock and Uhura have some kind of crush on each other?!? This is not Star Trek. If you have never seen this Star Trek movie, I congratulate you on your decision to avoid this travesty. If you want a nostalgic look back on Star Trek, or you want to see Star Trek at its best, just watch episodes of the original series, or the other Star Trek TV series, or some the original movies (e.g. Start Trek II: The Wrath of Khan or Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country).

I gave this disgusting horror 1/2 star. I'd give it negative 5 stars if I could. No plot. Horrible music with zero inspiration. Horrible acting. Horrible writing. But the worst part was that the idiots who produced, wrote, and directed this monstrosity relied totally upon cheap, confusing computerized special effects and the actors were hung out to dry in "useless land". A movie is only a movie if the actors are given decent scripts, and in this case, the special effects department was given full reign with a totally indecent script.

I love this movie! I saw it 10 times in the theater and loved every moment. This reboot breathed new life into the fandom (even if some of it was people hating the movie from the moment it was announced because the actors weren't the TOS crew), and it really nailed the important points. Yes, it is flashy and full of action, more like Star Wars than the "submarine warfare" that Trek had previously been described as, but it also cut to the heart of Star Trek - the friendship between Kirk and Spock, for one; Spock's loving relationship with his mother and his conflicted feelings about never being enough as a human/Vulcan hybrid for either planet; the grumpiness and steadfastness of Dr. McCoy, and it shines with the heart and humor that have always served as a trademark for Star Trek.

Time travel and alternate universes are nothing new to sci-fi or to Trek, but this is both done very well - Leonard Nimoy's cameo as the aged Ambassador Spock is an excellent bonus. There are a ton of winks to TOS, from Scotty's pet Tribble to the dramatic lighting in some scenes that throw back to the 60s lighting style. "Star Trek Into Darkness" brings us a wholly different Khan and a wallop of emotional moments.

I really wish they would get to work on Star Trek 4, but I don't know if they'll ever get it done - with this nuTrek crew, at least.

2009. This is the first REBOOT of S.T. with a new cast. Khan is NOT in this. The story of the beginning of James T. Kirk. Good action. A good ST movie. It SORT OF follows the ST type canon history and timeline. JJ did a good job rebooting the franchise and adding new story-plot line, equipment features.

Nope. I ain't no "Trekker" - But regardless, I still feel that I have the right to say that this film completely disgraced and degraded the Star Trek TV Show, the characters in that show, and the actors who played those characters. It really did.
I honestly can't imagine how anyone who happens to be a true fan of the Star Trek TV Show could possibly tolerate this truly pathetic offering and readily accept these talentless actors for the obvious damage that they did to these beloved Star Trek characters. It's almost like Sci-Fi desecration, in my opinion.

Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: Permission to speak freely, sir?

Spock: I welcome it.

Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: Do you? OK, then. Are you out of your Vulcan mind? Are you making a logical choice, sending Kirk away? Probably. But, the right one? You know, back home we have a saying: "If you're gonna ride in the Kentucky Derby, you don't leave your prize stallion in the stable."

Spock: A curious metaphor, doctor, as a stallion must first be broken before it can reach its potential.

Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: My God, man, you could at least ACT like it was a hard decision.

Spock: I intend to assist in the effort to reestablish communication with Starfleet. However, if crew morale is better served by my roaming the halls weeping, I will gladly defer to your medical expertise. Excuse me.

Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: [as Spock leaves] Green-blooded hobgoblin.

Spock: "...Dr. McCoy, you inadvertently activated a torpedo; could you replicate the process?" Bones: "Why the hell would I wanna do that?" Spock: "Can you or can you not?" Bones: "Dammit, man, I'm a doctor, not a torpedo technician!"
