"You think you are safe. You are not." Kahn
Star Trekkies are in for a fun-filled summer movie experience. Star Trek first appeared on television in September 1966 and since then has traveled through time and space with several television spinoffs and a vast array of movies on the large screen. Star Trek Into Darkness, takes a fresh spin by focusing on Chris Pine, James T. Kirk, earlier career and entire officer team on the U.S.S. Enterprise with Kirk at the helm. The story begins with a primitive planet where First Officer, Zachary Quinto, Spock, is trapped over a boiling ocean of lava. Spock, calm, cool and collected is ready to die to save his crew. Kirk, of course, does not allow this to happen, breaking Federation protocol and saving Spock. Facing consequences for a brash decision, Kirk, is stripped of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and at the same time finds an unstoppable evil force within their own organization sending shock waves and crisis amongst the land. The mass destruction evil player, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kahn, escapes to space after creating deadly havoc. Kirk bent on a mission of vengeance after the destruction is given back the Enterprise and blasts into space to a war-zone world to capture the evil doer. As our favorite heroes speed via warp drive into outer space to conquer evil, friendships are formed and torn, love examined along with a splattering of Romulan's, and even a tribble.
Star Trek into the Darkness is fantastic from start to finish. The cast is fresh, storyline believable with the familiar and much loved witty batter amongst the cast of characters. Audiences will eagerly look forward to more adventures of the starship Enterprise with the new cast as it speeds forward on a 5 year mission where no man has gone before.
