In 2233, the Federation starship USS Kelvin is investigating a “lightning storm” in space. A Romulan ship, the Narada, emerges from the storm and attacks the Kelvin. Narada ’s first officer, Ayel, demands that the Kelvin ’s Captain Robau come aboard to negotiate a truce. Once aboard, Robau is questioned about the current stardate and an “Ambassador Spock”, whom he professes not to know. Narada ’s commander, Nero, kills him, and continues his attack on the Kelvin. George Kirk, the Kelvin ’s first officer, orders the ship’s personnel, including his pregnant wife Winona, to evacuate the ship while he pilots the Kelvin on a collision course with the Narada, as the auto-pilot function has been damaged. At the cost of his life, Kirk ensures Winona’s survival as she gives birth to James T. Kirk.
I love star trek movies but this movie was the best. It was not star trek in the traditional sense of the word. It was actually fun and accessible. It could be watched by an extremely wide variety of audiences. It had legs. You could rewatch it and still find it enjoyable. Best star trek movie out there…
