J.J. Abrams continues the great thing he started with his 2009 reboot of this beloved franchise. This time out, he gives us some more familiar characters from Trek history, but thanks to that ingeniously created alternate timeline, the people aren’t quite the same. Benedict Cumberbatch is scary as a renegade Starfleet officer looking to kill as many commanders as possible while Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) chase him all over the universe. Peter Weller enters the fray as a power hungry Admiral, with Alice Eve a welcome addition as his daughter and Enterprise stowaway. There are moments when Abrams goes a little overboard with his homage (I hate that tribble!) but it’s not enough to damage what turns out to be another worthy chapter to the franchise, and a solid summer movie.
