Uber-nerd JJ Abrams (producer of Cloverfield, Lost, Alias) brings us back to the early days of Star Trek, when the Starship Enterprise had that new-car smell and Captain James T Kirk still had acne problems. With a fresh cast, including NZ’s Karl Urban and Simon Pegg as Scotty, this action-packed sci-fi epic reboots the franchise to the glory days of yore. More
Story follows the maiden voyage of the USS Enterprise, and the new recruits' mission to stop an evil being whose mission of vengeance threatens all of mankind. But aboard the ship is a bitter rivalry: James T Kirk (Chris Pine), is a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm boy, whereas Spock (Zachary Quinto), was raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion. As fiery instinct clashes with calm reason, their unlikely partnership is the only thing capable of leading their crew through unimaginable danger.
