This was a fun romp through a new part of the rebooted Star Trek universe. This was the first of the three in the rebooted series to actually go "where no man has gone before." I liked the world and the new aliens. The main villain is adequate and the hoard that rips through the ship is crazy.
The characters are partnered well and the Kirk-Spock due is broken up a bit which gives us a great duo in Spock and Bones. I found the pacing and cinematography to be well matched. The score was decent closing with a Guardians of the Galaxy like scene with a throw back to the first reboot with Sabotage by the Beastie Boys.
I really enjoy space and sci-fi, so I recommend this movie. The movie does have a decent script so many non-fans may like it, but I really think this is one for us geeks out there.
