I do enjoy sci-fi movies but I never watched the original TV show when it was on and I’m catching up now with the new movies, so if I miss out on crucial points that relates to the TV show, please feel free to let me know in the comments okay?
Star Trek Into Darkness is the 12th instalment in the Star Trek film franchise and it is the sequel to 2009’s Star Trek. The movie is directed by J.J. Abrams and the screenplay was written by Damon Lindelof, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Star Trek Into Darkness incorporates all the action scenes, special effects and humor necessary for a huge blockbuster, but the focus always stays squarely on the beloved characters: Captain / Commander James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), Commander Spock (Zachary Quinto), Dr Leonard “Bones” McCoy (Karl Urban), Commander Montgomery “Scotty” Scott (Simon Pegg), Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu (Johan Cho), Ensign Pavel Chekov (Anton Yelchin) and Lieutenant Nyota Uhura (Zoe Saldanha)."
