"Space, the final frontier...."; and so the story begins of how one James Tiberius Kirk became the captain of NCC-1701. While I was never a big fan of the old Star Trek series, I did watch some of the episodes and remember the chemistry and comraderie of the cast. This movie was a great salute to the old series, with a lot of the old jokes. The actor who played the young Spock was scarily similar to Leonard Nimoy (who has a great role in the movie as well) and Simon Pegg was hilarious as Scotty. It would have been nice to see that William Shatner fellow have at least a cameo. But it wasn't meant to be.
