Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The One with... Lens Flare — Lots. And Lots. Of Lens Flare.Star Trek is the eleventh movie in the Star Trek film series, released in 2009.The Film of the Series and partial Continuity Reboot from Lost creator J. J. Abrams featuring the characters from Star Trek: The Original Series played by a new cast and is set in an Alternate Timeline during the time period of The Original Series. Alternatively called J.J. Abrams' Star Trek, Star Trek 2009/'09, Star Trek: The Future Begins (even though that "subtitle" is actually the tagline), and Star Trek XI/11 to keep confusion in check with the other Trek films.In 2233, The Federation starship Kelvin comes across a "black hole"-like spatial phenomenon near a distant sun. Emerging from it is a massive ship called the Narada captained by a Romulan named Nero (Eric Bana). Nero kills the Kelvin's captain, and deploying weaponry vastly superior to that of the Federation ship, the Narada forces the Kelvin crew to abandon ship, with many crewmembers lost. While the survivors flee the devastating battle, a young boy is born amongst them: James Tiberius Kirk, son of the first officer of the Kelvin (Chris Hemsworth), who sacrifices himself and the ship to buy time for his crew's escape. This incident ultimately sets a new series of events in motion; one of them being James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) growing up an angry, rebellious young adult until he is recruited by Captain Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood) to join Starfleet.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })As Kirk makes waves at Starfleet Academy, the Narada and Nero emerge again after years in hiding. The Federation scrambles its fleet to confront the warship, deploying the flagship Enterprise, commanded by Pike, for the first time. All the rest of the fleet is destroyed, with the Enterprise only surviving due to a brief delay in getting to the battlefield. When the Enterprise engages the Narada, Pike is taken hostage. When they learn the Narada is from the distant future and begin to put together the events that lead to that future, it falls on Kirk and Spock (Zachary Quinto) to overcome their initial mistrust of each other and on the ship's green, hastily put-together crew of cadetsnote actually, concerning those with major roles, it's three cadets (one of whom is a lieutenant, and another of whom is already a qualified doctor), an ensign, a lieutenant, a lieutenant commander who was Reassigned to Antarctica, and a commander who was told You Are in Command Now—(the young TOS characters)—to somehow save the day.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The first theatrical Star Trek film to feature any of the original characters in 15 years. Released seven years after 2002's Star Trek: Nemesis (the biggest gap between films to date) from which it takes a major Tone Shift and, believe it or not, to which it is also a loose Stealth Sequel.Star Trek is the first entry in what has been officially dubbed the "Kelvin Timeline" that continues with the 2013 sequel Star Trek Into Darkness and the 2016 sequel Star Trek Beyond.

Off-the-Shelf FX: Among the props used on the Enterprise bridge are supermarket price scanners. (The filmmakers are honoring a fine old Trek tradition: In TOS, Dr. McCoy's surgical lasers were actually "Swedish modern" salt-and-pepper shakers that the show's prop guy found on sale at May Company in LA.)

comment
Overranked Soldier: Although most fans agree that if you are James Tiberius Kirk, you belong into the captain's chair, Kirk's promotion from cadet directly to first officer strains the Suspension of Disbelief for many. In order for it to happen, everyone above him in the chain of command has to die or be captured. Everyone in Starfleet. The Enterprise is staffed entirely with cadets. And Spock, who disqualifies himself after beating the crap out of Kirk (which is precipitated by Kirk himself, so make of that what you will).

Darker and Edgier: Unquestionably so. Even during the Voyager years, the Federation and Starfleet were still mostly set up around peaceful missions. In the reboot, Pike describes Starfleet as a "humanitarian and peacekeeping armada," and the rest of the film is spent fighting. Word of God states that this was due to the Kelvin's encounter with the Narada, which caused Starfleet to take on a much more militaristic turn.

The Worf Effect: Nero's awesome (mining) ship wiped out a fleet of 47 Klingon Warbirds, conveniently off-screen, of course. Apparently getting your ass whooped to demonstrate someone else's badassery is genetic. Countdown, the prequel comic, has the trope namer doing what he does best, getting his ass kicked.

All There in the Manual
 Star Trek (2009) / int_17ce80aa
comment
The Constitution-class of this continuity is bigger than it originally was (partially explained by an In-Universe redesign). Shatner's was around 280 meters long. Pine's was designed to be closer to 360 meters (which was largely a result of a sleeker design and longer nacelles), although it was upscaled in the movie proper, because Abrams wanted an oversized shuttle bay, to be over 700 meters long. For reference, that's around the same length as the Sovereign-class of the TNG movie era! Here◊ is a quick comparison chart, outlining the size descrepencies, and here is the main article.

Alternate Timeline
 Star Trek (2009) / int_19b6f396
comment
Alternate Timeline: The explanation behind the franchise's Continuity Reboot. Thanks to time-travel, the alternate universe in the film is now fundamentally changed. Word of God confirms that, because of this, the "prime" timeline encompassing the prior Trek canon still "exists". This has led to the Fan Nickname for the new films' timeline as "The JJ-verse". In 2016, shortly before the release of Star Trek Beyond, the timeline got officially dubbed the "Kelvin Timeline".

Never Trust a Trailer
 Star Trek (2009) / int_19ebe383
comment
Never Trust a Trailer: The trailers seem to have been specifically edited to imply or outright lie about events. For example, Nero's line "Your father... was a great man. But that was another life." is from two lines. One about Kirk's father, and the second half about Kirk himself, from Nero's original timeline. They also imply a romance between Kirk and Uhura. In the actual movie, Kirk does show interest in Uhura, but she doesn't give him the time of day. Or her first name. The trailer also seems to imply that when Kirk assumes the captain's chair (when McCoy says "We have no captain and no first officer to replace him"), it is done in a dramatic fashion. It's actually more Played for Laughs, as McCoy and the crew are astonished that the trouble-making Kirk is now in charge, since they were unaware that Pike promoted him when they left the ship for their task.

Downplayed, but still present. The traditional Kirk-Spock-McCoy dynamic, typically seen as the codifying power trio, is seen in its infancy. Kirk, here a brash hothead, actually ends up playing The McCoy more than the Trope Namer, who is more Kirk-like in response.

Heterosexual Life-Partners: Kirk and Spock. Spock Prime goes to incredibly risky lengths in order to preserve the natural development of the galaxy's greatest bromance. Kirk and McCoy become inseparable friends from the moment they meet, and are united in their dislike of Spock long before he befriends either of them.

Faceless Goons: A deleted scene has the Klingon guards at Rura Penthe wearing face-concealing helmets. Word of God says this was because they weren't sure whether or not to give the Klingons their more popular TNG ridged foreheads, or go with TOS's dark skinned humanoid look. In the end they just decided to cover the front of their heads and not worry about it.

comment
Unnecessarily Large Vessel: The new Enterprise is roughly the size of the Galaxy-class from the original timeline. Much of it consists of extremely cavernous open spaces. Jefferies Tubes have been replaced by catwalks. This partly due to the use of real world locations such as the National Ignition Facility as sets for filming the reboot movies as opposed to a soundstage or green screen CGI background.

Chekhov's Gun
 Star Trek (2009) / int_22cf536c
comment
Chekhov's Gun: A deleted scene shows Nero about to be interrogated by a Klingon on Rura Penthe using Centaurian slugs, who gloats about what the slugs will do to Nero. Nero escapes before this can happen. He later uses the same slugs to torture Pike. The Klingon transmission that Uhura tells Gaila about, while Kirk is hiding under Gaila's bed, plays a small but vital part in Kirk's attempts to make Pike take him seriously. One that is loaded and fired in a single scene: when Kirk lands on the drilling platform, he presses a button and his parachute is reeled in to his backpack. Shortly afterward, Sulu is left dangling over the side of the platform, held only by his parachute; he presses the corresponding button, and as the parachute is reeled in he is lifted up until he can get onto the platform. An early scene establishes that Spock as a kid is rather touchy about people disparaging his human mother. Later on, as soon as Kirk tries that route in trying to expose that Spock is "emotionally compromised", he flips out and beats the crap out of Kirk just like he did to his school bullies years earlier.

Laser Cutter: The Narada has an enormous laser drill, intended for mining, that Nero uses to make holes for launching Red Matter into to cause Planet-Shattering Kabooms.

Ironic Echo: When Kirk and McCoy first meet, McCoy tells Kirk, "I might throw up on you," since they're about to fly into space, triggering his phobia. Three years later, McCoy has gotten used to the idea, and stares in wonder at the shiny new Enterprise while Kirk, sick as a dog from the vaccine McCoy gave him, warns him about imminent vomit in turn.

We also have the Vulcan bullies picking on Young Spock. It was clear from their reaction to Spock delivering a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown to one of them that none of them considered the possibility of their trying to "elicit an emotional response" in Spock might result in violence.

Mythology Gag
 Star Trek (2009) / int_26ac510e
comment
Mythology Gag: It's subtle, but when Spock stands up during the hearing after the Kobayashi Maru, he performs the Picard Maneuver. When Nero fires his drill at San Francisco Bay, he ends up drilling in the same spot the HMS Bounty crashes in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Nero destroys 47 Klingon ships offscreen: the number 47 was a Running Gag in Star Trek: The Next Generation era of shows. The short-sleeved skirt uniforms worn by female Starfleet personnel are somewhat reminiscent of the skant uniform seen in the early seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation. A giant planet-killing spaceship that drove a man mad when he was Forced to Watch it destroy one, and is in turn vanquished by having a smaller ship laden up with an explosive payload and launched down its gullet by a pilot who beams out at the last moment? Sounds a lot like "The Doomsday Machine". At the end, the dress tunics everyone wears are clearly meant to be the similar ones from 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture. And it's probably no coincidence that Pike winds up in a wheelchair... "The Menagerie", anyone? In the opening scene, Kirk Sr.'s uniform seems to be about halfway between the ones used in Star Trek: Enterprise and the ones in the original series. Someone from the Romulan Empire, who has a ship (with a distinct green tinge) capable of destroying a planet/all life on a planet, with a vendetta against a member of the Enterprise crew? Sounds familiar. Of the seven main characters in The Original Series, Uhura is the only one who never had a canon first name; hence the Running Gag of her refusing to tell it to anyone. ("Nyota" was first recommended by Uhura's actress, Nichelle Nichols, and its arrival on screen is arguably the punch line to a four-decade Brick Joke.)

Kill Sat: The Narada's drill has the look of one, being dropped into a planet's atmosphere in order to fire a beam that bores its way to the planet's core, where pressure can ignite the Red Matter into a planet-destroying singularity. Nero could probably use the drill to annihilate whatever surface target he pleases, but since he's planning to destroy the whole planet anyway, he doesn't bother to aim it.

When Kirk is on the bridge, trying to elicit an emotional response from Spock at Spock Prime's orders, Spock tells him "I will not allow you to lecture me on the merits of emotion", then gets violent when Kirk implies that Spock never loved his mother. This despite the fact that he lectured Kirk about the merits of fear, and brought up Kirk's father in the same speech, barely hours before. Of course, the circumstances were slightly different, but still...

Everyone Went to School Together
 Star Trek (2009) / int_292d1ccd
comment
Everyone Went to School Together: Starfleet Academy in San Francisco. Justified though, as A) everyone in Starfleet has to go there, B) technically, only three of the characters were seen on-screen attending said school, and C) Spock was actually an instructor. Regarding some of the age discrepancies among the students, it's also safe to assume that McCoy is a mature student (since he was already a medical doctor when he started at the academy) and that Chekov has skipped a few years of school (justifying why such a young academy ensign is in such a responsible position would seem to be the point of Pike's "whiz-kid" comment in his first scene). These might both be a result of the alternate time line, of course.

Hurricane of Puns
 Star Trek (2009) / int_2937826d
comment
Hurricane of Puns: Michael Giacchino certainly had fun naming the songs in the soundtrack. A few self-explanatory examples: "Nailin' the Kelvin" "Enterprising Young Men" "Nero Death Experience" arguably takes the cake as "Worst Pun". Unless it's "Nice to Meld You". "Nero Sighted". "Nero Fiddles, Narada Burns". Those Nero puns just don't get old, do they? "Labour of Love" as Kirk is being born. "Does It Still McFly" as something to do with time travel happens. Ouch. This is practically Michael Giacchino's calling card. Hella Bar Talk = Bela Bartok (Hungarian composer). "I've Fallen and I Can't Beam Up!"

Bilingual Bonus: When Chekov (played by Russian-born Anton Yelchin) successfully transports falling Kirk and Sulu to safety, he exclaims a little something in Russian, "Ё-моё!" or "Yo-moyo!", the closest English equivalent being "holey-moley!" (both in meaning and outdatedness). On the commentary track, J. J. Abrams claims to have been at a screening in Russia where the audience went nuts at this part.

Easter Egg
 Star Trek (2009) / int_29a39f6
comment
Easter Egg: In the scene where the Enterprise first appears at Vulcan, after they come out of their slow barrel roll to avoid the debris, you can see R2-D2 in the bottom left corner of the screen. A menu in the bar Kirk and Uhura meet in has the "Slusho" drink from Cloverfield in it. The logo of the makers of the drink appears on a building in an establishing shot of San Francisco. The big red ball Abrams tries to get in most of his projects is the Red Matter. Speaking of Abrams' overall work, the name of the USS Kelvin is this film's use of the "Kelvin" mark he puts in most of his films and TV series. Speaking of Cloverfield, the giant red monster that attacked Kirk when he landed on the snow planet is reminiscent of the Cloverfield monster due to the shared bent-arm walking style and six limbed form. It appears Cloverfield has now unofficially become the earliest point in the Star Trek film timeline. Interesting... When Kirk and Spock first enter the bridge of the Jellyfish, the control chair and viewport◊ form the triangle-and-circle-within-a-circle symbol of IDIC◊, the Vulcan philosophy of "infinite diversity in infinite combinations". This is not surprising considering the ship was built by the Vulcan Science Academy.

comment
Plot Armor: The Enterprise is the beneficiary here when it arrives at Vulcan and gets spared from destruction only by Nero's orders. This is, however, justified by Nero's desire to keep Spock alive to be on the receiving end of Nero's revenge. Later deconstructed and indirectly discussed when the crew realizes that Nero's incursion has created an alternate reality. Basically, whatever their lives and destinies might have been beforehand, they are undoubtedly different now. However, it seems that fate wants them all on the Enterprise regardless ...

Many of the Vulcans who insult Spock for acting emotional fail to realise that they are guilty of the same thing, showing clear irritation and even mild anger when he fails to respond to their vicious barbs about his mother! Likewise, when the bullies finally goad the young Spock into losing his temper, you can see they are utterly terrified when he proceeds to beat the crap out of one of them!

Ramming Always Works: In some deleted scenes, the Narada got severely crippled after the Kelvin rammed into it, the ship and its crew were captured by the Klingons. They were taken to Rura Penthe (the prison planet from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country) and it took them twenty five years to escape. Needless to say once they got their ship back the Narada's crew proceeded to pay back the Klingons in full. The resulting battle is where the transmission Uhura picked up came from. The Narada gets a round two from the Jellyfish, which this time has the Red Matter to do most of the damage.

Brilliant, but Lazy: Jim Kirk, despite having an "off-the-charts aptitude," initially never thought much about of a life outside of repeatedly getting into trouble with the law.

A much subtler version is Spock's "Live Long and Prosper" to the Vulcan Science Academy. The novelization subtlely describes it as an equivalent to Flipping the Bird.

Batman Gambit: Kirk provoking Spock on the bridge. It was already shown that Spock wasn't in his right mind due to the fact that he effectively marooned Kirk on Delta Vega, but Kirk, at Spock-Prime's suggestion, pushes him further to reveal that the destruction of Vulcan and the death of his mother hurt him far worse that he's showing.

Actor Allusion: As Spock Prime, Leonard Nimoy introduces himself saying "I am Spock", which was the title of his second autobiography (so titled to rebut the notion that invokedI Am Not Spock created that he supposedly hated both Star Trek and the Spock character). Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock, pins down Kirk by the neck, eerily Sylar-like. Zoë Saldana played a Trekkie in The Terminal.

Looking at the movie again, it would appear Nero is one of these as well. Even when his plans get foiled, or his mooks get punked, he never hauls off and declares You Have Failed Me. When Kirk and Sulu damage the drill the first time, all he did was just retract it and order the red matter deployed.note Then again, they did succeed in reaching the core, so they hadn't actually screwed up his plans.

Jerk with a Heart of Gold
 Star Trek (2009) / int_4781adbb
comment
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Kirk, Captain James T. At first, it's almost as if he wakes up in the morning and thinks of new ways to piss off any and every body he encounters. Wrecks his stepdad's car and stands up to the cop who tried to pull him over. Participates in a bar fight that some cadets start (they punched him first) because he kept hitting on Uhura (who's completely uninterested in him). Reprograms an unwinnable test, which is cheating, to prove that he can win it (by thinking outside the box). Shows no remorse when caught because he doesn't feel he's in the wrong. Indeed, Kirk demonstrates the same wheeling, dealing, and conniving traits of a Magnificent Bastard. The differences are—first, Kirk was never out to hurt anyone just for his own ends. Second, it is made clear he's only acting up because he lacks a challenge worthy of his smarts—once the adventure kicks off, Kirk repeatedly throws himself into danger to save people, despite inevitably ending up getting his ass kicked. Most importantly, he uses his cunning to save the universe. This movie states overtly what the series were more subtle about: Kirk's Jerk tendencies are also the qualities that make him The Captain we all know and love.

Butt-Monkey: Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise. Many of the film's action sequences, and much of its humor, involve him getting owned in one way or another. He also gets stranded on planets and has freaky and potentially embarrassing reactions to vaccines. He gets choked by Spock at one point and by a Romulan at another. Both times with some pretty good acting by Pine. It hurts as you try to catch your breath afterwards. Pine actually mentioned in an interview that he admires Harrison Ford for his ability to take a beating like it really hurts, and that he considers that an underrated skill.

The Hero's Journey: Near-perfect example, in double for both Spock and Kirk, including the Miraculous Birth: James Tiberius Kirk, born on the day of the destruction of the Kelvin, son of the hero George Kirk of the same battle; Spock, born the Half-Human son of the Vulcan Ambassador Sarek. In fact, in the novelisation we learn that during Spock's birth, a star was going supernova elsewhere in the galaxy. The novelisation actually states that the birth of Spock and the death of an entire inhabited solar system are equal in magnitude according to the universe itself!

Zeerust Canon: Subverted. Word of God is that reverse-engineered technology based on the Kelvin's scans of the Narada is why everything appears more advanced than in the Prime Universe. Played with the USS Kelvin. The ship seems to have marginally superior assets and technology to what originally would've been the forthcoming TOS Enterprise had Nero not shown up. However the creators had to keep certain design aspects of it in check since the Kelvin existed over 30 years before the events of Star Trek: The Original Series (TOS) and thus it has some subtle '60s TOS elements, while still keeping it appealing to a 2009 audience.

 Star Trek (2009) / int_50b05d30
comment
Disproportionate Retribution: Nero decides to wait 25 years for Spock to come through the same black hole that pulled him into the past, makes Spock watch Vulcan get destroyed, and then moves on to systematically destroy the other planets of the Federation. All of this is because Spock turned up mere minutes too late to save Romulus from a super nova. (Countdown's backstory doesn't count as the film's writers have established it as non-canon material.)

Broad Strokes: Time travel does not quite explain all the stylistic differences in this movie, as it is technically in an Alternate Continuity and is not a complete Continuity Reboot. (Warp drive leaving a ship blind, for example.) It's implied that the Narada's attack (the one that killed Kirk's father) initiated a sort of "Cold War" for the Federation, leading to their design philosophies changing.

Ripple Effect-Proof Memory
 Star Trek (2009) / int_54d6f53f
comment
Ripple Effect-Proof Memory: Ultimately averted. One may think Spock Prime would have new memories of what his younger self just experienced. Then again, he's the Prime Reality version of Spock◊ (hence his nickname), separate from the New Alternate One◊ who exists in a new spacetime continuum branching off the original universe. Despite being a younger incarnation, whatever happens to New Spock would most likely not, in any way, physically affect Spock Prime whose only affected by the original timestream◊ (anything in the Star Trek franchise before the 2009 reboot along with Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard). The same principle applies to anyone and anything that exists past the timeline diverging event on stardate 2233.04 (or January 4, 2233). Star Trek has always had extremely variant versions of what happens due to time travel: the past being altered, the past never altering (because by time traveling you did what you were supposed to do to begin with); the past being altered but not in any real, significant way; or even the creation of alternate continuities (such as in this case, or what happened in the TNG episode "Yesterday's Enterprise").

Cosmetically Advanced Prequel: Subverted yet played with as we see the young TOS crew at the beginning of their Starfleet careers, albeit in a technologically advanced new timeline in which the events of The Original Series could never possibly occur. The opening is set 32 years before TOS; however, the starship Kelvin still looks like a major upgrade to the original Enterprise despite being its forerunner.

Let's Get Dangerous!: Sulu admits his "advanced combat training" is actually fencing, which earns a seemingly-justified Oh, Crap! face from Kirk and a laugh from the audience. In the fight on the drill that immediately follows, Sulu defeats his opponent (while Kirk gets his ass kicked, no less, resulting in Sulu killing Kirk's opponent as well).

Fantastic Racism: Deconstructed.

Here, the Vulcan kids, as well as the High Council (in a snootier fashion) really pile it on Spock, and it's treated in the same light real-world racism generally is.

Recycled IN SPACE!
 Star Trek (2009) / int_59aa1d0b
comment
Recycled IN SPACE!: While it's based on the '60s TV series, where the show dealt with themes of exploration and asking universal questions, the film more-or-less becomes Top Gun... in space. Kirk is a maverick whose father died in an act of aerial heroism. He has an older, more tightly-wound buddy (McCoy), and a gruff superior officer (Pike) who appears to disapprove of him, but secretly thinks he has a certain untapped potential. There's also an "icy" rival (Spock), though he gets the hot/smart chick (Uhura) instead of our maverick. Spock kicks him off the Enterprise not because of his flying, but because of his attitude, but after he meets Spock's older self, he makes it back to the ship and proves he's the best of the best and by the end, he and Spock can be each others' wingman anytime—or rather, are and always shall be friends.

Flying Cutlery Spaceship: The Narada, of course, arguably one of the biggest and most physically complicated examples. It used to be a simple mining vessel but getting Borg tech upgrades, an insane captain and a little while getting poked around by the Klingons all resulted in it looking like some kind of mix between a Lovecraftian squid and a whole warehouse's worth of knives.

The Mountains of Illinois: Young Kirk's excursion with his stepfather's car starts in an environment that generally resembles Iowa, but ends at a high cliffside that certainly doesn't exist anywhere in Iowa (yet), overlooking an distinctly American southwestern landscape. There may be no mountains, but there are plenty of limestone and other dimensional stone quarries, and the long shot we see of the car approaching the edge does show the kind of regular, smooth faces that would be seen in a quarry.

Heroic Sacrifice
 Star Trek (2009) / int_6439de78
comment
Heroic Sacrifice: One of the finest and most moving in the entire Star Trek canon. The movie begins with George Kirk staying behind on the U.S.S. Kelvin to save the escaping crew, including his pregnant wife and her child. Kirk becomes a legendary hero for this action, given that in his extremely short time as Captain, he saved 800 lives. This is made all the more poignant considering that, when you look closely, you can actually see missiles from the Narada being intercepted just before they are about to impact on his wife's shuttle. There was, quite simply, no chance of survival without him. Captain Robau as well. "If I'm not back in 15 minutes, evacuate the crew," basically means Robau sacrifices himself to buy time for the evacuation of the Kelvin. He knows he is going to his death. And Pike too, after a fashion. He pulls a Robau, going off to sacrifice himself to Nero (and let's face it, Robau's fate has to be in his head as he does all of this) while the crew mounts a counterattack. Though, it's also subverted a bit when Kirk shows up later to pull Pike off the Narada before it blows.

However, it's suggested that Uhura has been "upgraded", so to speak, and they're now a Four-Temperament Ensemble, with McCoy as sanguine, Kirk as choleric, Uhura as melancholic, and Spock as phlegmatic. There's good discussion of this here.

Dying Moment of Awesome: "Your father was captain of a starship for twelve minutes. He saved over 800 lives, including your mother's, and yours." For the record, that averages out to ten lives every nine seconds.

Aluminum Christmas Trees: Safely parachuting from a planet's orbit wearing a space suit. It sounds like pure science fiction, but it's actually been done twice on our own planet. At the time of this film's release, the world record for highest parachute jump had been set in 1960 by American Air Force officer Joseph Kittinger, who parachuted from Earth's stratosphere in a manner almost exactly like that depicted in the movie. Then, three years after the movie came out, that record was broken by Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner, who parachuted from the stratosphere about 24 miles from the ground (again, almost exactly like Kirk and Sulu did it).

All Asians Know Martial Arts: Subverted. Sulu has "advanced hand-to-hand combat training"... namely fencing. Which is European, not Asian. Considering it's also a Continuity Nod, it makes sense. (This time, he uses a switchblade katana, though, suggesting he might know kendo in addition to traditional fencing.)

Meaningful Name: When your parents name you Nero, they probably have a specific destiny in mind. The USS Kelvin is named after physicist and engineer Lord Kelvin (of whom the unit of temperature gets its namesake) as well as J. J. Abrams' grandfather Harry Kelvin. The registry number (NCC-0514) is also Harry's birthday. Narada was a figure in Hindu mythology who travelled to distant worlds and realms. Rather appropriate for a time-travelling ship.

comment
A Wizard Did It: Word of God says that Future Spock seeing the planet Vulcan in the sky was actually a psychic vision similar to how Spock can sense large numbers of Vulcans dying over long distances in Star Trek: The Original Series. The Novelization and Comic-Book Adaptation say that Kirk's escape pod landed so conveniently near Spock's cave because the timeline was trying to repair itself by bringing Kirk and Spock together. Abrams says that the reason why technology is more advanced in the alternate timeline is because the shuttles evacuating the Kelvin scanned Nero's ship and then studied the futuristic technology. A tie-in comic about Nero says that a stellar cartographer on Rura Pente and Vejur helped him work out where and when Future Spock would emerge from the black hole.

Token Romance: Spock and Uhura. Actually subverted in the sequel too: the romance allows the writers to remind the audience that Spock does in fact have feelings but just chooses to not show them. Roberto Orci said that they serve as a parallel to Spock's parents, which were also an interracial and interspecies couple, and thus it's quite plausible for Spock to fall for a human the way his father did, and it challenges his character in ways his counterpart never was. The romance also subverts the strong independent black woman who doesn't need no man racist trope for Uhura as well as the the hero always gets the girl trope (as Kirk doesn't get the girl that is in fact the already established girlfriend of The Nerdy Friend of the Hero.

The trailer also seems to imply that when Kirk assumes the captain's chair (when McCoy says "We have no captain and no first officer to replace him"), it is done in a dramatic fashion. It's actually more Played for Laughs, as McCoy and the crew are astonished that the trouble-making Kirk is now in charge, since they were unaware that Pike promoted him when they left the ship for their task.

For Want of a Nail: Why everything is different in the new timeline. See also Butterfly of Doom, above. Additionally, had Sulu, new to the position of helmsman of the Enterprise, not left the inertial dampers engaged (the "parking brake on"), the ship would have probably been destroyed with the rest of the armada. By arriving a minute or so later, Nero had time to see the ship's name and realize the Spock from the current era was probably onboard as well.

 Star Trek (2009) / int_7c7589af
comment
Earth-Shattering Kaboom: Nero's plan being to destroy every single planet in the Federation, just to get back at Spock for not being able to stop Romulus from being destroyed by a star going supernova in time. He actually gets as far as destroying Vulcan, and is in the process of trying to destroy Earth before he is stopped by Kirk and Spock. Technically, it's an implosion, rather than an explosion as the red matter is injected into the planet's core and ignites, setting off a black hole.

Recycled Title: Star Trek is already the original name of the first series and the franchise as a whole. As of today, the 2009 film is currently the only work in the Star Trek franchise to be officially known as Star Trek with no subtitle, as the series was renamed Star Trek: The Original Series, and the first film had the full title of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Fans are calling it "Star Trek 11" or Star Trek: The Future Begins to differentiate it. It has also been labeled Star Trek '09 while TOS is alternatively referred to as Star Trek '66, nodding to their respective releases.

Establishing Character Moment: Kirk choosing to sabotage the Kobayashi Maru test rather than accept defeat. This has been his ECM ever since it was first discussed in The Wrath of Khan, but this was the first time we got to see it happen canonically. Young Kirk trashing his stepdad's antique corvette in Iowa while trying to evade a hoverbike cop in contrast to young Spock on a school day answering every single question given by a computer correctly.

To Star Wars: During the beginning of the battle between the Kelvin and the Narada, one of the bridge staff says "All power to forward batteries." The Enterprise going into warp comes this close to looking like going into hyperspace. When the cadets muster in the hangar for their ship postings, Cadet Vader is assigned to the USS Hood.

Promoted to Love Interest: Spock and Uhura. There were a few scenes between them in early TOS episodes that could be seen as flirting, but it never really went anywhere. The film, on the other hand, has them in an established relationship.

What Happened to the Mouse?
 Star Trek (2009) / int_863fa679
comment
What Happened to the Mouse?: It's unknown whether Gaila was assigned to any of the Federation starships that were destroyed in the battle with Nero at Vulcan. Deleted scenes show she was also assigned to the Enterprise. There was, in fact an also-deleted subplot about how she and Kirk are now awkward around each other once she realizes he only slept with her to get her to reprogram the Kobayashi Maru. However, the deleted scene on board Enterprise, of Kirk apologizing to Gaila, is actually a different Orion (played by Diora Baird, Gaila was played by Rachel Nichols), and Kirk eventually realizes he's apologizing to a woman he's never met. It was cut along with the minor plot of Kirk using Gaila to beat the Kobayashi Maru, and because it made Kirk look to unsympathetic, not recognizing this green-skinned redhead isn't the same green-skinned redhead he'd been involved with. This still leaves Gaila's ultimate fate unknown.

Which is slightly disturbing, as Spock's not at the Academy as a student. The IDW tie-in comics show that Kirk is actually quite supportive of Spock and Uhura's relationship.

Your Size May Vary
 Star Trek (2009) / int_8d25533e
comment
Your Size May Vary: The Constitution-class of this continuity is bigger than it originally was (partially explained by an In-Universe redesign). Shatner's was around 280 meters long. Pine's was designed to be closer to 360 meters (which was largely a result of a sleeker design and longer nacelles), although it was upscaled in the movie proper, because Abrams wanted an oversized shuttle bay, to be over 700 meters long. For reference, that's around the same length as the Sovereign-class of the TNG movie era! Here◊ is a quick comparison chart, outlining the size descrepencies, and here is the main article. In addition, Daddy Kirk "saved 800 lives" on the Kelvin (pre-time change) when the original Enterprise (newer and larger than the Kelvin) had a crew of about 450. Assuming a great deal of casualties in that battle, that puts the Kelvin crew compliment closer to the 1,000 of the Enterprise-D.

Cavalier Consumption: Kirk during the Kobayashi Maru test is shown casually munching on an apple while destroying the simulated Klingon attackers with trivial ease thanks to hacking the sim computers. The gesture was added by Chris Pine because he heard once that eating an apple makes you look more cocky. Whether intentional or not, this is one of the many Continuity Nods, this time to Wrath of Khan, where Shatner!Kirk talks about the test while casually consuming an apple.

Pair the Smart Ones: Spock and Uhura. Uhura is one of the top cadets in her class, was once Spock's teaching assistant, and earned her spot on the Enterprise by knowing more Klingon and Romulan than the sitting communication officer. Spock is one of the Academy's most smartest and esteemed graduates and is first officer of the ship. The fact that she was once his teaching assistant definitely underlines that she's smart enough to keep up with him.

The trailers seem to have been specifically edited to imply or outright lie about events. For example, Nero's line "Your father... was a great man. But that was another life." is from two lines. One about Kirk's father, and the second half about Kirk himself, from Nero's original timeline.

Nothing Is the Same Anymore: For the characters, the events of this film are just another event, but for the fans with the benefit of oversight, it heavily alters Star Trek mythology. The destruction of Vulcan. The devastated look on the older Spock's face cements that until then, the changes could have simply turned this into a Close-Enough Timeline. Now nothing will ever be the same. Word of God was that Vulcan was destroyed for exactly this reason—to show that things are not the same, and that this is deadly serious.

comment
Took a Level in Badass: Jim Kirk seems to have leveled up in between Starfleet courses. Chekov manages to level up, relative to his counterpart in the original continuity, by saving Kirk and Sulu through some very skilled transporter use. Starfleet in response to the attack on the Kelvin. Part of the reason the Enterprise is more advanced than its counterpart from the Prime Universe is Starfleet's rapid realisation that there were things out there that had them severely outgunned. Pike even states that instead of just exploration, Starfleet has become a "Peacekeeping and Humanitarian Armada".

Continuity Nod
 Star Trek (2009) / int_9dab0a6e
comment
Continuity Nod: Every single character gets their famous catch phrase or mannerism in the flick. "Wessels", "Giving her all she's got", "I'm a doctor, not a—", etc. And... There's a reference to an "Admiral Archer"; though the captain of the first Starship Enterprise would be pushing 150 by the time of the film, Word of God says it's meant to be him (and McCoy Prime did live to at least 137). The reference, incidentally, is his dog being eaten by the transporter. Spock quotes Sherlock Holmes's line about improbable truth, which he also did in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Nero has a hilarious nod to Wrath of Khan: "SPOOOOCK!! SPOOOOOOCK!!!" One scene has the bridge crew formulating a plan. As in the old days, Kirk is in the Captain's chair, in one of the classic poses, McCoy is standing behind him, Spock is pacing. And then Spock snaps at Kirk to get out of the chair. Kirk intentionally angers Spock, including mocking his parentage, but he's not doing it to be a Jerkass; he's doing it because he had to. The same thing happens in the TOS episode "This Side of Paradise" when Kirk has to piss off Spock to release him from the effect of the spores. Spock Prime undoubtedly had this incident in mind when he counseled Kirk on how to provoke Spock into an extreme emotional response. Sarek's reply to a young Spock about why he married Spock's human mother: "As Ambassador to Earth it is my duty to observe and understand human behavior. Marrying your mother was... logical," is the same answer Sarek gives an adult Spock to the same question in the TOS episode "Journey to Babel". Nero's mind-control slug bears a resemblance to Khan's Ceti eels, though it's not exactly the same thing. Sulu also knows fencing, which it turned out he was enthusiastic about in the episode "The Naked Time". Here he finds a more practical outlet. Captain Pike was the captain of the Enterprise in the original pilot episode, and also appeared in a later episode involving Spock. Near the end of the film, he is seen in a wheelchair, another continuity nod (or perhaps Mythology Gag?) to that later episode, "The Menagerie" (though he's obviously in better condition). Spock Prime's surprise at hearing his younger self marooned Kirk for mutiny is another nod, since in the episode "The Menagerie" he himself mutinied and literally kidnapped the wheelchair-bound Captain Pike. It was so effective a mutiny that nobody even realized he'd done it until they were well on their way to Talos IV, Spock's intended destination. "I have been, and always shall be, your friend." McCoy calls for Nurse Chapel when Kirk has an allergic reaction to the vaccine he was given to sneak on the Enterprise. Chapel might be seen on-screen when Kirk and Spock beam back to the Enterprise with Pike at the end of the film, but isn't named in the scene, so it's left ambiguous. The overly-cocky British guy who gets himself needlessly killed early on in the Vulcan mission is dressed in red. When the Enterprise drops out of warp, the ship veers left, but everyone on the bridge leans to the right—a nice little nod to the old series' "special effects". Spock accusing Spock Prime of lying to Kirk when letting him "infer universe-ending paradoxes would ensue" if they met, and Spock Prime's answer, "Oh, I... implied" is a callback to Wrath of Khan. Saavik accuses Spock of lying, to which he replies, "No, I... exaggerated." The whole hair-splitting on whether or not something is a lie is also a major plot point in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Spock Prime giving Scotty his own formula for transwarp beaming recalls Scotty in Star Trek IV giving a 20th century scientist the formula for transparent aluminum with the justification, "For all we know, he invented the stuff." At one point, McCoy asks Spock "Are you out of your Vulcan mind?", just as he did in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, before the latter's Heroic Sacrifice. The planet Kirk is stranded on, "Delta Vega," appeared in the first (chronologically speaking) episode of TOS, "Where No Man Has Gone Before", as the planet where Kirk and Spock planned to maroon their god-like friend Gary Mitchell. There's an early nod to the animated series' episode "Yesteryear", in which young Spock experiences an outburst of emotion and proceeds to pummel another Vulcan child mercilessly for insulting Sarek and Amanda. Sarek's description of logic as "a serenity humans seldom experience" also echoes a line Spock tells his younger self in that episode. Spock speaks with his mother about undergoing the rite of Kolinahr, the purging of all emotions, which was what Spock was doing towards the beginning of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The Enterprise escapes a subspace anomaly by ejecting the warp core and detonating it, just like in Star Trek: Insurrection. Abrams has stated that one of the reasons for Starfleet's increased militarism is because of the Narada's attack on the Kelvin. It's not without precedent in Star Trek; the same thing happened after the Battle of Wolf 359 and the destruction of the USS Odyssey in the main continuity. And as an added bonus, Wolf 359 was a battle in which the Federation was nearly destroyed by a Borg ship. The Narada, which nearly succeeds in destroying the Federation, also had Borg technology integrated into it. A human mind-melding with a Vulcan exposes the former to the onslaught of the latter's powerful emotions. Kirk's tearful reaction after receiving Spock Prime's memories of Vulcan's destruction mirrors that of Picard's breakdown after melding with Sarek in the TNG episode "Sarek". In one shot, Captain Pike has a block of light◊ across his eyes, similar to shots such as this◊ on TOS. Spock Prime recites the "Space, the final frontier" monologue before the end credits, just like in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. When Spock turns down his admission to the Vulcan Science Academy, a minister says, "No Vulcan has declined admission." Since they (not-very) subtly insulted his mother, Spock retorts, "Since I am half-human, your reputation remains untarnished." This refers to the climax of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan: As McCoy tries to stop Spock from entering the dangerously-radiated Engineering, saying "No human can tolerate the radiation in there!", Spock retorts, "As you are so fond of pointing out, Doctor, I am not human."

Reimagining the Artifact: On Star Trek: The Original Series, Dr. McCoy's nickname "Bones" comes from the term "Sawbones", which was an old nickname for doctors. Since the term has fallen from the parlance, this film has Kirk call McCoy "Bones" because, in his introduction, he explains he's joining Starfleet because "The ex-wife took the whole damn planet in the divorce. All I've got left is my bones."

Cut Lex Luthor a Check: Although the Narada crew was held prisoner by the Klingon Emprire for 25 years, in deleted scenes, Nero still could have taken his ship to Romulus after escaping, even Spock Prime's ship after capturing him, and used all that future tech to help his race conquer their enemies. No wonder Spock decided Nero was crazy. Pike points this out to Nero during his interrogation. But Nero responds that it's not the Romulus he knows, and his loved ones would still be dead.

Which Me?: Near the end of the movie, Spock sees someone he thinks is his father, but it turns out on closer inspection to be his older self, who tells him, "I am not our father". He seems to be deliberately mixing his pronouns as a way of cluing Spock to his identity, as neither of them have any more pronoun trouble for the rest of the conversation.

Frictionless Reentry: Kirk, Sulu, and Chief Engineer Redshirt do a skydive from low orbit around Vulcan, with no sign of atmospheric burn. Granted, one can assume their spacesuits are specially constructed to allow safe re-entry. As they are dropping through the atmosphere vertically, their tangential speed (which would cause the friction) is basically zero.note See also recent examples of successful stratosphere jumps.

Canon Discontinuity: Subverted. Though this film and any sequels that follow revamp the TOS era of the Trek Verse in a divergent, parallel timeline, they still accept the previous shows and movies as canon as they're a loose continuation of that continuity. Contrary to popular belief, the timeline in the new movies is not the original timeline having been altered, but simply a new, separate timeline altogether that branches off the original one as a weird result of Time Travel. The creators were not going to disrespectfully erase 43 years of iconic sci-fi. The events of the prequel series Star Trek: Enterprise remain as part of the history shared by both timelines—ironically enough, given how divisive the show was to fans.

 Star Trek (2009) / int_a412cd2b
comment
Lens Flare: This film uses a lot of lens flare. This was a style decision by J. J. Abrams, who stated it was to represent a bright future. He later admitted he went overboard with the lens flares. Most of flares in the movie are real, not CGI, as the set was very brightly lit, with the ship shining everywhere, causing the flares.

Fisticuff-Provoking Comment: Kirk tries to prove that Spock doesn't have his emotions in check, and succeeds when he cracks about his mother, who had just perished in the destruction of Vulcan. Even then, he still probably didn't expect what would happen when he did.

Mood Whiplash: After a particularly intense scene in the bridge wherein Kirk manages to enrage Spock by mentioning that he never loved his mother and gets his ass whooped, Scotty breaks the tension by saying "I like this ship. It's exciting!" And previously, after discovering most of the fleet has been destroyed by the Narada, suddenly Nero greets them with a casual, almost bored;

Stealth Sequel: It was billed as an Origin Story prequel, but turned out to be a quasi-prequel, sequel and a reboot all in one. In addition to seeing Kirk and co. as rookies, we get an aging Spock meeting his younger self, and we see how the Federation's conflict with the Romulans finally ends.

Subject to the Rule of Drama. When we're subject to a character POV, we either hear nothing or just the sound of their own breathing if they are in a space suit. If there are no character POVs to be subjected to, we can hear the explosions and jumps to warp just fine.

Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: Played with. Despite Kirk and Spock materializing in the middle of their bridge, Nero's crew is still good enough to miss them by inches and send them scrambling for cover. Our heroes get precious few hits themselves until they can get behind cover and aim properly.

comment
Obfuscating Stupidity: Jim Kirk practically turns this into an art form, frequently acting like a womanizing idiot or playing the fool throughout parts of the film. However, it quickly becomes clear that he's not nearly as stupid as he leads people to believe, effectively beating the supposedly unbeatable Kobayashi Maru through rather ingenious means and then stopping Nero's rampage of revenge against the Federation. Prior to joining Starfleet, it's even stated by Pike that Jim's the only “genius-level repeat offender in the Midwest."

The destruction of Vulcan. The devastated look on the older Spock's face cements that until then, the changes could have simply turned this into a Close-Enough Timeline. Now nothing will ever be the same. Word of God was that Vulcan was destroyed for exactly this reason—to show that things are not the same, and that this is deadly serious.

Intelligible Unintelligible: The other characters have no trouble understanding a word Chekov says, despite him having a "Russian" accent thicker than borscht. This is inverted, however, when the computer can't understand his passcode, because of his mangling of "Vwictor Vwictor". (Incidentally, Anton Yelchin really is Russian-born. The accent is still very, very fake, especially being that the quirks of it are actually Slovakian, and not Russian, as commented on in the DVD behind the scenes extras.)

Super-Powered Robot Meter Maids: Nero's ship, a 24th century civilian mining vessel that is capable of destroying 47 23rd century Klingon warships. Even considering the 150 year tech advance, that's still one hell of a mining vessel. In the comic book accompanying the movie, it's explained that Nero's ship is equipped with reverse-engineered Borg weapons that he took from a research base.note Consider a 1945 cargo ship, with a 3" deck gun and a twin 20mm AA mount, not to mention an all-metal hull and diesel engines, transported back 155 years to 1790. It would be, hands down, the most powerful warship on the planet.

Save the Villain: Played with. When the Narada is crippled by the artificial black hole, Kirk offers assistance and fair accomodations for the crew as refugees. Even Spock gave a kind of inverted What the Hell, Hero? to Kirk. Nero venomously refuses any help and Kirk wastes no time in opening fire to make sure the ship doesn't survive.

Oh, Crap!: This exchange causes Kirk to have this expression: And when Kirk tries to save Sulu from a very long fall, only for his parachute to break away. Scotty tries to beam Kirk and Spock aboard what he assumes is the Romulan ship's cargo bay. Instead, they beam onto the bridge, surrounded by Romulans. Also: "I've got your gun." In case you missed it: FIRE EVERYTHING! The entire bridge crew gets one when they emerge from warp and find that the fleet has been destroyed. More than that, the expression on their faces when the debris from the fleet is directly in their path. Spock gets a low-grade one when it's first reported that Vulcan is in trouble.

Promotion, Not Punishment: At the start, Kirk is actually about to be kicked out for cheating on the Kobayashi Maru test, then tops that by stowing away on the Enterprise, then actually attempts a mutiny against Spock and disobeys the acting Captain's orders. Being that it is his disregard of orders that leads to the defeat of the Big Bad and the saving of (almost) every planet in the Federation, one can begin to see how he actually skips all the way to the Captain's chair at the end.

No OSHA Compliance
 Star Trek (2009) / int_b47d95be
comment
No OSHA Compliance: The Narada has platforms suspended over huge drops, with no railings. Hundreds of them. Of course, this allows the Romulans to get around more quickly, so it may be a deliberate design feature. Yes, they jump off, but remember that like the Vulcans, they have three times the strength and endurance of a human. Also, the Narada is a refitted deep-space mining vessel, so we're seeing the massive cargo bays that would have normally carried mined materials. The platforms and walkways were mostly made from scrap when it was refitted into a warship and aren't part of the normal design. There are also scenes where power cables are seen in puddles of water. Perhaps some credit should be given to the engineering sections in this movie... this Enterprise may just be the nearest thing we'll get to an OSHA-compliant ship in the Trek Verse ("Gentlemen! I call my invention... a seatbelt."), although still far from perfect in that regard, like for example the lack of barriers to prevent entering the transporter pad when it's in operation. The Enterprise view screen is a glass (or transparent aluminium) window that leads directly out into space, but doesn't have any form of blast shield or emergency bulkhead in case it breaks. While you could argue that the ship has shields for that, they frequently go offline and aren't that reliable as a safeguard.

Too Dumb to Live
 Star Trek (2009) / int_b58b4e3c
comment
Too Dumb to Live: The whole race of Romulans. Their whole sun goes supernova thus destroying Romulus in the process? Sorry, but you must be plain dumb in order to let that happen (according to Star Trek Online, they caused it by testing weapons that were banned due to this specific reason). Not only do they possess a whole star empire, which means they have more planets then just the one being threatened by the super nova, they should also have the technological possibilities to detect super novas in time. It's not like they happen as a total surprise. It shouldn't have been a problem at all to evacuate a planet in time. And to let Spock as the only person in the goddamned empire try to prevent it because they were too busy arguing. That's beyond dumb. Maybe more so, since the ship and technology Spock uses were built on Vulcan, which means somebody had sufficient advance notice and time to prepare a response. Due to his wanting to show up the rookies, Olson waits until the absolute last moment before popping his parachute. Kirk and Sulu pull their chutes at a safe distance above the platform, but Olson turns out to have waited too long, and winds up dropping right into the path of the mining laser beam, completely vaporizing him and the explosives he was carrying for destroying the drill. We also have the Vulcan bullies picking on Young Spock. It was clear from their reaction to Spock delivering a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown to one of them that none of them considered the possibility of their trying to "elicit an emotional response" in Spock might result in violence.

comment
Precision F-Strike: Kirk's reaction after meeting Spock Prime. Well, precision BS-strike actually, but close. A much subtler version is Spock's "Live Long and Prosper" to the Vulcan Science Academy. The novelization subtlely describes it as an equivalent to Flipping the Bird. When "Sabotage" is being played while little James Kirk is joyriding in his uncle's car, they happen to leave the F bomb in the song, when in normal cases it's burred out for PG-13 films. Perhaps this may have been the series' first F bomb used in a film. Who could forget this gem from Bones.

Generic Doomsday Villain
 Star Trek (2009) / int_c250346f
comment
Generic Doomsday Villain: Nero. His backstory is that, in the late 24th century, his home planet (with his pregnant wife on it) was destroyed in a supernova, which, for some reason means that he wants to destroy every planet in The Federation. To make matters worse, no one ever points out the fact that he's gone back in time a hundred and fifty years before the supernova took place and therefore has ample opportunity to, oh, I don't know... WARN HIS PEOPLE THAT THEIR PLANET IS GOING TO BE DESTROYED. This is a bad case of All There in the Manual, as reading the prequel comic reveals that Nero witnessed the beginning of the supernova, but the Romulan senate refused to listen to him even with concrete evidence. So once he goes back in time, he figures that if that senate wouldn't listen to him, the one he would now face sure as hell wouldn't. In the comic he also works closely with Spock on the Federation science project to prevent the disaster, hearing promises that everything will end up all right... only for it to go horribly wrong. That in turn makes Nero's desire to destroy Vulcan and the Federation more understandable. Spending a decade inside a Klingon Prison after going back into the past didn't help his sanity either.

This universe's version of Uhura, being a Cunning Linguist, owes a bit to Hoshi Sato, as well as to Nichelle Nichols creating the character as a linguist originally (even if she never really spoke any alien language in the show and actually used a dictionary to speak Klingon in one of the TOS movies).

Insane Troll Logic: Nero actually seems to believe that destroying Vulcan, Earth and the Federation will save Romulus, when it was destroyed due to a sun going supernova, and blames them for letting it happen when they tried to save Romulus and were simply too late. Made all the more ridiculous by the fact that Romulus still exists in the time period he is now in and he is doing nothing to warn them to evacuate or otherwise do something practical and obvious to avert the disaster. It is implied that he doesn't care about Romulus anymore, that he just wants revenge on a Federation that helped cause the destruction of all that he knew and loved... and that he's just insane.

Shout-Out
 Star Trek (2009) / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: The Red Matter ball looks identical to a couple that feature in Alias. The Jellyfish's Red Matter room is very similar to the inside of the Joint European Torus [1]. To Star Wars: During the beginning of the battle between the Kelvin and the Narada, one of the bridge staff says "All power to forward batteries." The Enterprise going into warp comes this close to looking like going into hyperspace. When the cadets muster in the hangar for their ship postings, Cadet Vader is assigned to the USS Hood. When Captain Pike's shuttle is launching for the space jump, the air traffic controller's pre-flight checks are the same as a Viper from Battlestar Galactica (2003). Kirk and McCoy fly to spacedock aboard the Shuttlecraft Gilliam. When young Kirk is joyriding to the tune of the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage", it might have seemed like an odd song choice until one remembers when William Shatner voiced displeasure over being told how to pronounce said word during an audiobook recording. An arctic planet inhabited by red multi-limbed-and-jawed creatures evokes The Thing (1982). Spock quotes Sherlock Holmes from The Sign of the Four: "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth".

Perhaps some credit should be given to the engineering sections in this movie... this Enterprise may just be the nearest thing we'll get to an OSHA-compliant ship in the Trek Verse ("Gentlemen!

Kirk, here a brash hothead, actually ends up playing The McCoy more than the Trope Namer, who is more Kirk-like in response. However, it's suggested that Uhura has been "upgraded", so to speak, and they're now a Four-Temperament Ensemble, with McCoy as sanguine, Kirk as choleric, Uhura as melancholic, and Spock as phlegmatic. There's good discussion of this here.

Sour Supporter: McCoy stands by Kirk through all his crazy shenanigans, even when he can't quite see how Kirk's antics are helping anyone. When Kirk actually manages to gain the captain's chair, McCoy is incredulous.

Space Is Noisy: Subject to the Rule of Drama. When we're subject to a character POV, we either hear nothing or just the sound of their own breathing if they are in a space suit. If there are no character POVs to be subjected to, we can hear the explosions and jumps to warp just fine. Subverted when the Kelvin is being attacked. There's plenty of crashing and screaming before the hull ruptures and the woman is sucked into space, and then it goes completely silent while she is still flailing and trying to scream.

Star Trek has always had extremely variant versions of what happens due to time travel: the past being altered, the past never altering (because by time traveling you did what you were supposed to do to begin with); the past being altered but not in any real, significant way; or even the creation of alternate continuities (such as in this case, or what happened in the TNG episode "Yesterday's Enterprise").

Cassandra Truth: Kirk attempts to warn Pike to stop their flight and not go to Vulcan because it was a trap by the Romulans, recognizing the so-called "natural disaster" as the arrival of the Narada. Pike thinks he's trying to get more attention and Spock is more than happy to want to toss Kirk out of the bridge on his ass, but Uhura agreeing with Kirk's warnings makes them back down enough to at least try to figure out if Kirk is right. When they get to Vulcan, they get their answer.

In Spite of a Nail: James T. Kirk's father dies thanks to Nero's meddling with the timestream, and Kirk grows up an angry, disaffected youth. Yet, against all odds, vastly different circumstances work out in the end to bring the core crew of the Enterprise together, as if willed by Destiny itself, along with Spock Prime's meddling. The IDW comics are running through various Star Trek: The Original Series storylines. There are differences, because the characters are different, but Gary Mitchell still becomes a god when they cross the Galactic Barrier, and the "Galileo Seven" still end up trapped on Taurus II while studying a quasar.

Sci-Fi Writers Have No Sense of Scale
 Star Trek (2009) / int_d525f857
comment
Sci-Fi Writers Have No Sense of Scale: Two main problems with the supernova scenario. First, the idea that a supernova could threaten to destroy the entire galaxy. The blast front would dissipate long before that from spreading out too far. The official novelization of the movie fixes this, saying the supernova had threatened everything in its vicinity. Second, the idea that a supernova could destroy the Romulus System before it could be evacuated. Having the shockwave travel at the required speed violates basic Einsteinian physics (i.e. it would have to travel faster than the speed of light, which is impossible). The only way this would make sense is if it was the sun of Romulus and Remus themselves that blew up. Otherwise the star systems in the vicinity would have, at minimum, years to evacuate, a daunting but hardly impossible task for a major warp-capable polity such as the Romulan Star Empire. Star Trek Online gives a non-canon explanation for this: the supernova was not a natural phenomenon, but rather caused by Romulan experiments with treaty-banned subspace weapons. Because of this the shockwave traveled through subspace at FTL speeds.

Hypocrite: Many of the Vulcans who insult Spock for acting emotional fail to realise that they are guilty of the same thing, showing clear irritation and even mild anger when he fails to respond to their vicious barbs about his mother! Likewise, when the bullies finally goad the young Spock into losing his temper, you can see they are utterly terrified when he proceeds to beat the crap out of one of them! When Kirk is on the bridge, trying to elicit an emotional response from Spock at Spock Prime's orders, Spock tells him "I will not allow you to lecture me on the merits of emotion", then gets violent when Kirk implies that Spock never loved his mother. This despite the fact that he lectured Kirk about the merits of fear, and brought up Kirk's father in the same speech, barely hours before. Of course, the circumstances were slightly different, but still...

Contrived Coincidence
 Star Trek (2009) / int_dc579c91
comment
Contrived Coincidence: Every single officer of higher rank than the main characters is killed or, in Captain Pike's case, incapacitated, resulting in the crew that we know from the original series. Justified in that it's the crew's origin story, but it can stretch Willing Suspension of Disbelief. Except Uhura's superior—she's just a much better linguist than he is. Scotty comes on board after the previous Chief Engineer has already succumbed to stupidity, and he has just invented transwarp beaming. Sort of. Not that Spock Prime has nothing to do with giving Scotty his own completed theory. A deleted line from Spock suggests there was the hand of fate in there. Maybe the biggest one. Spock gets annoyed with Kirk and drops him on the nearest planet after Vulcan is destroyed, which is also where Old Spock is hanging out, because Nero wanted him to bear witness. So far, so good. Then Kirk just happens to land within running distance of Spock's cave, when he could have landed anywhere on the planet. That's... incredibly unlikely. And then Scotty just happens to be stationed in an outpost only a couple of miles away. It's possible that Kirk's pod was deliberately dropped nearby a Federation installation so that he didn't freeze to death, but that doesn't explain what Spock is doing so close by. The film tries to lampshade this coincidence by having Old Spock ask Kirk, "How did you find me?" But, Kirk is too freaked out to answer that question.

Reasonable Authority Figure: Pike; Robau. Looking at the movie again, it would appear Nero is one of these as well. Even when his plans get foiled, or his mooks get punked, he never hauls off and declares You Have Failed Me. When Kirk and Sulu damage the drill the first time, all he did was just retract it and order the red matter deployed.note Then again, they did succeed in reaching the core, so they hadn't actually screwed up his plans.

Plot Allergy: McCoy uses Kirk's (expected) reaction to a vaccine get him aboard the Enterprise on medical grounds. Unfortunately, poor Kirk turns out to be outright allergic to the vaccine and experiences some... rather interesting reactions to it.

comment
Composite Character: This universe's version of Uhura, being a Cunning Linguist, owes a bit to Hoshi Sato, as well as to Nichelle Nichols creating the character as a linguist originally (even if she never really spoke any alien language in the show and actually used a dictionary to speak Klingon in one of the TOS movies). The re-imagined Enterprise is an elemental fusion of the original ship from The Original Series and the heavily-refit version from the first six Star Trek films.

The Chew Toy: While Kirk is still The Ace we all know and love, he's on the receiving end of most of the asskickings in the film, from the heroes and villains alike! Likewise, his tragic backstory, his reaction to the vaccine, and being chased by not one, but two monsters within minutes of landing on Delta Vega, seem to suggest that the universe is actively conspiring to screw with him!

Determinator: James Kirk, who doesn't believe in no-win scenarios and is certainly one stubborn fellow once he sets his mind to accomplishing something, be it graduating from Starfleet Academy early, finding a way to beat the supposedly unbeatable Kobayashi Maru, or stopping Nero. He takes more beat-downs than any other character and is consistently degraded or doubted by those around him, but keeps coming back for more in order to protect his homeworld. He is certainly not too worried about getting himself killed in the process, either.

comment
Mildly Military: Starfleet is semi-militarized in response to the fate of the Kelvin, but has its female personnel in sundresses (admittedly this is a Continuity Nod to Star Trek: The Original Series). However, they act more military in this film than Starfleet often does, for instance convening a quasi-Court Martial in response to Kirk cheating on the Kobayashi Maru test. (How military, exactly, Starfleet is depends on the series and script: Prime Kirk and Benjamin Sisko were both very open about the fact that they were primarily soldiers, not explorers or diplomats; Jean-Luc Picard considered himself the opposite.)

Exact Words: Spock Prime insists that his presence be kept secret from Spock. Kirk infers from this that universe-ending paradoxes will ensue. Spock Prime expected Kirk to do just that... but he never actually said that would be the consequence, so technically he did not lie.

 Star Trek (2009) / int_eb8ec7c8
comment
Kirk intentionally angers Spock, including mocking his parentage, but he's not doing it to be a Jerkass; he's doing it because he had to. The same thing happens in the TOS episode "This Side of Paradise" when Kirk has to piss off Spock to release him from the effect of the spores. Spock Prime undoubtedly had this incident in mind when he counseled Kirk on how to provoke Spock into an extreme emotional response.

You Are in Command Now: Before heading to the Narada, Captain Robau leaves his Number Two in command of the Kelvin. This gets repeated when it's Pike's turn to go to the Narada, so he leaves Spock in command of the Enterprise after promoting Kirk to First Officer. Then, when Spock has to relinquish command for being "emotionally compromised", Kirk becomes the captain.

Traveling at the Speed of Plot
 Star Trek (2009) / int_f314f8c4
comment
Traveling at the Speed of Plot: The distance from Earth to Vulcan takes exactly as long as is required by the plot. The initial journey seems to take only a few minutes but the return trip takes the second half of the movie. 40 Eridani (the triple-star system identified in canon as Vulcan's system) is only about 16.5 light years from Sol. This means that crossing the galaxy would take less than 9 days. There's an instance of "turbolift rides only last as long as the conversation contained within." Duing the buildup to the Enterprise's departure, Spock takes a turbolift from the shuttlebay to the bridge, 80% of the total length of the ship, within seconds. Later Spock is joined by Uhura in the turbolift. Even after stopping and restarting the lift, the lift travels for at least 20 seconds.

You Killed My Father: Nero is responsible for the death of Jim Kirk's father, George Kirk, only minutes after Jim's birth. Ironically, revenge for his father's death is never a main motive in Kirk's defeat of Nero. Played straight with Spock's mother, whose death takes place in the movie's actual present.

Dark and Troubled Past: Heavily alluded to with Kirk, who lost his father just minutes after his birth, was frequently abused by his stepfather while his mother was off-planet—his brother Johnny ran away when Jim was still young because he hated their stepfather so much—nearly killed himself by driving a car off a cliff when he was twelve, possibly survived Tarsus IV (if future movies keep with the original series), and was already a repeat offender long before enlisting in Starfleet.
