On the day of James Kirk's birth, his father dies on his ship in a last stand against a mysterious alien time-traveling vessel looking for Ambassador Spock, who, in this time, is also a child on Vulcan disdained by his neighbors for his half-human heritage. Twenty-five years later, Kirk has grown into a young troublemaker. Challenged by Captain Christopher Pike to realize his potential in Starfleet, he comes to annoy instructors like young Commander Spock. Suddenly, there is an emergency at Vulcan and the newly commissioned USS Enterprise is crewed with promising cadets like Nyota Uhura, Hikaru Sulu, Pavel Chekov and even Kirk himself, thanks to Leonard McCoy's medical trickery. Together, this crew will have an adventure in the final frontier where the old legend is altered forever as a new version of it begins. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (email@example.com)

Disclaimer: I am not a trekkie. But if it had to do with the original cast, I loved it.
I just happened to catch this on AMC the other night. They said it had been nominated for 4 academy awards. I wondered how I had missed this one. When I did some research, I found it was up against Avatar, The Hurt Locker, and Inglorious Bastards. Some heavy competition.
What I like about the movie is that it stayed true to the television cast. They were recognizable immediately. It added a lot of depth to the characters. Pure entertainment. The special effects were incredible. Grab it on Netflix or the $5 bin at Walley world.!
