Storyline

After stopping off at Starbase Yorktown, a remote outpost on the fringes of Federation space, the USS Enterprise, halfway into their five-year mission, is destroyed by an unstoppable wave of unknown aliens. With the crew stranded on an unknown planet and with no apparent means of rescue, they find themselves fighting against a ruthless enemy with a well-earned hatred of the Federation and everything it stands for. Only a rebellious alien warrior can help them reunite and leave the planet to stop this deadly menace from beginning a possible galactic war. Written by Paramount Pictures

Trivia

Simon Pegg revealed in a press conference that the character Jaylah was inspired by Jennifer Lawrence in the film Winter's Bone (2010). "We were trying to create this very independent character, but we didn't have a name for it," Pegg said. "So we just called it 'Jennifer-Lawrence-In-Winter's-Bone.'" "That's a long name," the writer and actor joked. "So it started getting tiring always saying, well Jennifer-Lawrence-In-Winter's-Bone is fighting here. So then we started calling her J-Law, and then she became Jaylah." See more »

Goofs

During the final assault, Spock states that there are 3 ships (Krall's ship and the attached "drill" ships) entering Yorktown. However, the initial attack on the Enterprise would lead us to believe there are four ships; Krall's and three attached drillers, not two as Spock's statement suggests. The only way this could be true is if one was destroyed, and this is never explicitly shown. See more »

Not the Sort of Star Trek That Made Star Trek Great
24 July 2016 | by Dan_LSee all my reviews

This ain't your daddy's Star Trek (and the 3D is so unnecessary that it is NOT worth the extra cost):

(1) The plot is close to incomprehensible (2) The directing is mediocre (okay, that is a characteristic in common with the original series) (3) The audience manipulation is palpable (4) The action is overblown (5) And did I mention the plot is close to incomprehensible?

Don't get me wrong. The film is generally fun. But it lacked the heart and soul present in all five television series (ain't counting no cartoons). The "Spock Prime" character is about as confusing as it gets. And while the homages to Leonard Nimoy were touching, they were a bit heavy handed.

But worst of all was the loss of any subtlety and heart. This reboot increasing seems to be solely about the money.

And the negative reaction to Zulu being gay -- which was handled with taste and, unlike the rest of the film, subtlety -- was just plain crazy. I would think that fans would have been a lot more upset about the Uhura-Spock romantic relationship given the nature of Vulcans, even half-human, half-Vulcan ones -- now that's moving away from the Roddenberry playbook far more than making Zulu gay.

All in all, Star Trek Beyond is a pleasant, but not very satisfying addition to the Star Trek compendium.
