TCP: Star Trek (2009)

Tuesday, August 16, 2011
The theme for this week's Tuesday Couch Potatoes is Spaced Out.

I'm gonna deviate a little from the plot and not talk about astronauts. Well, they could be classified as astronauts but more like adventurers of a different kind.

I'm talking about the people of the Federation from the movie STAR TREK. Yes, there have been many remakes and versions and one has only to google Star Trek and all these little mushrooms of star trekkies pop up.

My choice would be the latest version of this film, which was done in 2009, starring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, in the lead. I was really quite impressed as to how they've made the film fresh and relevant to the current generation. The film follows the story of Captain James T Kirk (Pine) and his path to greatness aboard the starship Enterprise. Here he meets the alien Spock (Quinto) and their friendship, or rather mutual respect for each other, began.

It was the highest grossing film in the Star Trek series. It was also credited as a reboot of the series. (All this according to Wikipedia).

Can't wait for the next instalment which is rumoured to be due out in 2012.

    I have no idea what's Star Trek's story is about. I am aware of it's existence and general idea but never had the time to watch it. Maybe soon, I'll get a chance to finally watch it and will be able to get all those Star Trek geek talk. :D
