This prequel to the popular Star Trek TV series follows the iconic character of James T. Kirk from the day of his birth to 20 years later when Kirk is a student at Starfleet Academy. The movie brings together the classic personalities from the 1960s, including Kirk, Spock, Uhura, and Sulu, among others as the crew of the newly commissioned USSE Enterprise. Entertainment Weekly calls the movie a “clever and infectious reboot of the amazingly enduring sci-fi classic.”
This Paramount film, directed by J.J. Abrams and starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, John Cho, and Simon Regg, is rated PG-13. For more information on the film visit www.startrek.com or the Office of Student Activities Web site, www.iwu.edu/activities/.
