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

In a deleted scene, Nero is interrogated by a Klingon on the prison planet Rura Penthe and escapes. This is the planet that played a huge role in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991). In that movie Chekov called Rura Penthe "the alien's graveyard" as aliens from across the galaxy, that had been convicted by the Kligons, were sent there to work in the dillithium mines, and life expectancy for a prisoner there was at most one year.

Mr. Scott says he had a transporter mishap with "Admiral Archer's prized beagle". The series Star Trek: Enterprise with Archer was set around 100 years before the events of the movie. The Scotty scene takes place in 2258. Enterprise was set in 2151-2155 meaning Archer would be around 140-150 years old. Star Trek writer Roberto Orci went on record to clear up the issue: "Admiral Archer is a reference to the Archer we all know and love, from the TV series and yes he would be over 100, which is a likely life expectancy in a futuristic space faring race of humans" (as depicted by McCoy in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Encounter at Farpoint.)

U.S.S. Kelvin, go for Starfleet Base.
Kelvin Crew Member:
Starfleet Base, we've sent you a transmission. Did you receive?
Kelvin, have you double-checked those readings?
Kelvin Crew Member:
Our gravitational sensors are going crazy here. You should see this. It looks like a lightning storm.
What you've sent us doesn't seem possible.
Kelvin Crew Member:
Yes ma'am. I understand. That's why we sent it.

The first part of the closing credits is styled after the opening credits of Star Trek (1966), where the starship Enterprise blasts off into space as a monologue describes its mission, and then the cast names appear as the famous "Star Trek" theme music plays. See more »
let's do it fast as everything has already been said... this movie made me so sad. Just after the end, I only could think: "Oh my God, they killed Star Trek". Another abramisation... I expected so much, but I only got eyecandy.
There is nothing about Star Trek in this movie but the overall ships design and the names. I'd give the same movie à 6 if it wasn't related to Star Trek (an easy job: just change uniforms, names, and the enterprise design).
I can understand why so much people like this movie, and I don't blame them in any way. If Abram made them happy, it's good.
But not for me.
