FORGET the ageing and portly crew of the previous films aboard the USS Enterprise, the all-new STAR TREK (12A) goes back to where it all began.
A young crew makes its maiden voyage on board the most advanced starship ever created.
But they soon find they are up against an evil being whose mission of vengeance threatens all mankind.
The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of James Kirk (Chris Pine), a delinquent, thrill-seeking farm boy, and Spock (Zachary Quinto, of TV series Heroes), a man raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion.

Director/producer JJ Abrams says: "I was a fan of the original series, although I was never a Trekker.
"Yet I always felt there was something that had not been done with Star Trek. There have been 10 movies, but this is the first time that a movie has dealt with the fundamental, primary story Gene Roddenberry originally created in 1966.
"What I hope with this movie is that you never have to have seen anything about Star Trek before to really enjoy a comical, romantic, suspenseful adventure, but that it also does proud the lasting, brilliant world that Gene Roddenberry created.
