-Star Trek (PG-13)

by Dr. D ~

Theater release: May 07, 2009 by Paramount Pictures; Directed by: J.J. Abrams; Runtime: 2 hours 7 minutes; Cast: Chris Pine (James T.

The film features an innovative way of using time travel to wipe out the familiar ‘time line’ that trekkie’s like myself have watched for over 40 years. A change right at the beginning of the film—the destruction of Kirk’s father and his ship as James T.was being born sends the franchise into a new alternate time loop and makes it possible to do it all over again—differently.

James T.Kirk grows up without a father to guide him along and becomes a regular small town trouble maker before meeting up with Capt. Pike, a former friend of his fathers, who challenges him to seek his destiny with Star Fleet. We also get a glimpse of a young Spock—a half human picked on by other Vulcans and joins Star Fleet as a reaction to the lack of respect he receives from his Vulcan elders.

One by one we are introduced to all of the familiar Enterprise characters—played by a new bunch of young actors—Uhura, McCoy, Scotty, Sulu, and Chekov—way younger than they ever were even in the original series. But that is the point—an all new Trek for an all new ‘younger’ generation.

Just when the whole story seems rather confusing, the ‘old Spock’ (Leonard Nimoy) comes to the rescue and explains it all. Usually there is some kind of moral theme or commentary on current culture inherent in a Trek story line. This time the whole story is merely a vehicle to introduce the new crew and get them all together for the next adventure.

The special effects and the sound track are fantastic—far beyond where Trek has gone before. The film is fun and enjoyable on a number of different levels. It is a stand alone story that can be enjoyed by those who have never ‘Trekked’ before.

For me, it was great to see my grandson enthusiastically enjoy the film —he didn’t really care for the past Treks–and now looks forward to the next—and I look forward to seeing it with him-–to boldly go and do it all over again.
