Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) are back aboard the Enterprise. There is a threat facing all civilization. An army of superior beings has been cryogenic-ally stored upon the Enterprise with their knowledge, but the leader of this army has been awakened for the evil purposes of one man. This leader of the superior army is none other than Khan. But Kirk and Spock don’t know whether to trust him or not, until they confer with the future Spock who warns them that Khan is the most evil being in the universe. Khan will use all his tricks to try to destroy the Enterprise and everyone on it to get his army back. This is a sequel to the 2009 Star Trek and continues the story of the early days of the crew.

This is a high energy, high adventure story. From start to finish there is tension and non-stop action. Khan is one of the greatest of all villains ever, and he lives up to his early potential here. The photography is stunning, especially the battles in outer space, and it’s fun to see the crew as young people, but with the traits that we will know and love later. One advantage to a prequel/sequel is that we get to build off what happened in the first one, but still enjoy the knowledge of what will be coming in the future. This is a very well made story, and every fan of Star Trek ought to make sure to see this one. It wasn’t as huge in the theater as the first one was, but it’s very good, and if you happened to miss it, be sure to watch it now on DVD, now that it’s available. Great movie!
