Star Trek

Synopsis: On the day of James Kirk's birth, his father dies on his damaged starship in a last stand against a Romulan mining vessel looking for Ambassador Spock, who in this time, has grown on Vulcan disdained by his neighbors for his half-human heritage. 25 years later, James T. Kirk has grown into a young rebellious troublemaker. Challenged by Captain Christopher Pike to realize his potential in Starfleet, he comes to annoy academy instructors like Commander Spock. Suddenly, there is an emergency on 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 the legend begins.

- USS Kelvin, go for Starfleet base.

- Starfleet Base.

We sent you a transmission.

Did you receive it?

Kelvin, can you double-check those readings?

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.

Yes mam, I understand.

That's why we sent it.

- Report.

- Still out of visual range. 20 seconds.

Alert captain Robau that Starfleet advised to

proceed with caution ...

Polarize the view screen.

- Whatever this is... Klingon origin?

- Captain, we have visual.

- Repeat. Could this be Klingon?

- Negative, lieutenant.

You're 75 000 kilometers

from the Klingon border.

Captain, are you seeing this?

My God.

I have a reading.

They've locked weapons on us!

Red alert!

Torpedo locked on us at 320- 2!

Arm weapons!

Evasive pattern delta 5!

We're being cut like grass.

Fire all phasers!

Damage report.

Warp drive's been knocked out.

Never seen anything like this.

Weapons offline.

Main power at 38%.

- They're firing another!

- All power to forward shields!

Help me ...

... maneuver has been lost.

Are shields even on?

... decks 17 and 13, we have

confirmed casualties.

Shields at 9%.

All remaining power to forward shields.

Prepare shuttles for evacuation.


My commander requests the presence of

your captain

in order to negotiate a ceasefire.

You will come aboard our ship via shuttlecraft.

Your refusal would be unwise.

Walk with me.

If I don't report in 15 minutes

evacuate the crew.

- Sir, we could ...

- There is no outpost out here.

Use autopilot and get off this ship.

Aye captain.

You're captain now, Mr. Kirk.

His heart rate is elevated.

Look at the ship.

- Are you familiar with this craft?

- Who is your commander?

- Is that him?

- I will speak for captain Nero.

Then ask captain Nero:

What gives him the right to attack a Federation vessel.

Do you know the location of

ambassador Spock?

I'm unfamiliar with

ambassador Spock.

- What is the current star date?

- Star date?

Where are you from?


- Sir, they have a lock on our signal.

- They're launching again.

Bravo 6 maneuver fire, full spread!

I'm initiating general order 13, we're evacuating!


All decks, this is the captain speaking,

evacuate the ship immediately.

Get your ... to the shuttlecraft.

Begin evacuating ...

- That's George's voice. What's happening?

- We'll deliver it in the shuttle. Go!

- George.

- You're OK, thank God.

I have medical shuttle 37 standing by.

Get to it now. Can you do that?

- Yes.

- Everything's gonna be OK.

- Do exactly as I say, shuttle 37.

- George, it's coming.

- Our baby. It's coming now.

- I'm on my way.

Autopilot function has been destroyed.

Manual operation only.

Clear those decks now! Get to the shuttles!

Move! Move! Move!

- That was a big one!

- Just keep breathing. You'll be fine.

- And the baby too, right?

- And the baby too.

Right here.

Captain to shuttle 37.

Is my wife on board?

- Yes sir, she is.

- I need you to go now. Do you hear me?

- We're waiting on you sir.

- No, just go, take off immediately.

- That's an order.

- Yes sir.

Wait. We're not going yet.

Please stop.

George, the shuttle's leaving. Where are you?

Sweetheart, listen to me.

I'm not gonna be there.

- No.

- This is the only way you'll survive.

Please don't stay on the ship. Come to me here.

The shuttles will never make it if I don't

fight them off.

George, I can't do this without you.

OK, I need you to push now!




- What is it?

- It's a boy.

A boy?

- Tell me about him.

- He's beautiful.

George, you should be here.

Impact alert.

- What are we gonna call him?

- We can name him after your father.

Tiberius, you kiddin' me?

No, that's the worst.

Let's name him after your dad.

Let's call him Jim.

Jim. OK. Jim it is.

- Sweetheart can you hear me?

- I can hear...

I love you so much.

I love you!


Hey, are you out of your mind?

That car is an antique.

You think you can get away with this

just because your mother's off planet.

You get your ass back home now! You live in my

house buddy. You live in my house and that's my car.

You get one scratch on that car

and I'm gonna whip your ass ...

Hey Johnny!

Citizen, pull over.


Is there a problem officer?

Citizen, what is your name?

My name is James Tiberius Kirk.

- What is the formula for the volume of a sphere?

- 4/3 PI times the radius cubed ...

- What is the dimensionality ...

- Dimensionality equals the logarithm of n divided by ...

... non-excludability and non-rivalry ...

... 4/3 PI times the radius ...

... is morally praiseworthy

but not morally obligatory.


I presume you've prepared new insults for today?


This is your 35th attempt to illicit an emotional

response from me.

You're neither Human nor Vulcan and

therefore have no place in this universe.

Look, his Human eyes.

They look sad. Don't they.

Perhaps an emotional response

requires physical stimulae.

He's a traitor you know? Your father.

For marrying her. That Human whore.

They called you a traitor.

Emotions run deep within our race.

In many ways more deeply than in humans.

Logic offers a serenity humans

seldom experience.

The control of feelings ...

so that they do not control you.

You suggest that I should be completely Vulcan?
