Did You Know?


Chekov spends much of this film in engineering rather than the bridge, so that he does not interact with Khan. This is in keeping with Star Trek: The Original Series: Space Seed (1967), which aired before Chekov was added to the main cast. Ironically, Chekov is the only Enterprise crew member Khan interacted with directly in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) (every other contact was through a view-screen). Khan's face-to-face interaction with the rest of the crew on board the Enterprise is a first since "Space Seed". This is not to say that in the TV episode Khan did not interact with Chekov offscreen. When he first sees Chekov in The Wrath of Khan he recognizes him and calls him by name, saying, "I never forget a face." See more »


After the Enterprise's flight from Admiral Marcus is halted, Hikaru Sulu states the Enterprise is 237,000 Km from Earth; however, the Earth's moon can be seen adjacent to the Enterprise at this time. The moon's distance from Earth is on average 238,000 Miles, which is approximately 384,000 Km. See more »

"star trek for people who hate Star Trek"
31 August 2013 | by Rob-O-CopSee all my reviews

If you love the star trek franchise because it consistently delivers thought provoking interesting stories without the brutality and violence that Hollywood seems hooked on, you're going to be as disappointed as I was with this movie.

It looked big, the acting was really good, but JJ Abrams for some unknown reason decided it was necessary to remove the essence of what makes Star Trek different and replace it with some Michael Bay antics. At times it was like watching someone play a video game.

It was a really well made waste of time. No insight into the human condition, no thinking necessary, just eye candy and forgettable events.

And that's a shame, cos there was some great acting going on here. all the cast delivered well especially Cumberbatch and Quinto, some great looking effects, but why bother? When interviewed on the daily show Abrams actually said he wanted to make this movie for all the people who didn't like Star Trek. Isn't that just the stupidest thing you've ever heard?
