SPACE: THE FINAL FRONTIER. THESE ARE THE VOYAGES OF THE STAR SHIP ENTERPRISE. ITS FIVE-YEAR MISSION: TO EXPLORE STRANGE NEW WORLDS; TO SEEK OUT NEW LIFE AND NEW CIVILIZATIONS; TO BOLDLY GO WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE.
After 5 television series – The Original Series (1966 – 1969), The next Generation (1987 – 1994), Deep Space Nine (1993 – 1999), Voyager (1995 – 2001) and Enterprise (2001 – 2005), and no less then 10 feature films – The Motion Picture, The Wrath of Khan, The Search for Spock, The Voyage Home, The Final Frontier, The Undiscovered Country, Generations, First Contact, Insurrection and Nemesis, we will finally be able to return to the fantastic science fiction world of Star Trek this spring, with the release of the 11th motion picture, simply named Star Trek. When you think you have seen it all, Star Trek will, all in tradition of many other sequel films at this moment, bring us back all the way before the beginning.
In the 23rd Century, Earth is a member of the United Federation of Planets, a peaceful alliance of democratic worlds that runs a Starfleet of space vessels to patrol the final frontier of space. Young cadet James T. Kirk enrolls at Starfleet Academy, unknowingly starting a dangerous and exciting career that will bring him in deep space, and eventually will lead to meeting that person from a complete unknown civilization that will become his soul mate: Spock. Together they will embark in a battle against the Romulans from the future who are interfering with history and time.
Star Trek is in no way a remake of any of the previously released films. Star Trek: The Motion Picture starts where the series left off. And Captain James T. Kirk is promoted to Admiral and Chief of Starfleet Operations. The 2009 movie Star Trek goes way back in history. It even goes further back than the first aired television episode The Man Trap. How ever, this doesn’t mean we won’t see original characters back in this 11th episode of the Star Trek movie series. Thanks to the ingenious time paradox story, we will be encountering the original Spock, played by Leonard Nimoy who was responsible for giving life to the very first Spock back in 1966, and Captain Pike, played by Bruce Greenwood, who was the very first commander of the Star Ship Enterprise.
Full synopsis of this latest Star Trek adventure is still an unexplored area, but if we can believe the history of the legendary series and films, and the released trailer, it promises to be a new fantastic adventure for the real ‘Trekkie’, a new vision of the greatest space adventure of all time. Star Trek introduces the original characters of James Kirk, Spock, Doctor McCoy, Scotty, Uhura and Hikaru Sulu. Directed by J. J. Abrams, and starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Eric Bana and Leonard Nimoy, will open in theaters in May 2009.
