OUR REVIEW & RATING ★★★½
Star Trek into Darkness quotes are a mash-up of past storylines that will more likely be appreciated by non-Trekkie fans. This sequel picks up several months after the events of the first movie, after being called back home, the crew of the Enterprise find a seemingly unstoppable force which has attacked Starfleet and left the planet in chaos.
Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise are tasked with leading the manhunt to a war zone world to capture the party responsible, known only as ‘John Harrison’, and settle an old score, testing the crews friendships when sacrifices must be made.
The film starts out explosively and is fast paced making the dialogue suffer slightly as a consequence undercutting one or two key moments that needed a bit more time to unfold. However, the major strength of this movie is the management of the large ensemble cast and giving the minor characters their moments to shine.
Verdict: This technically slick follow-up managed to successfully expand and explore further into the iconic characters but the controversial choice of storyline may annoy the diehard Trekkie fans!
[first lines; in Class M planet Nibiru, we see a robed figure running through a red forest from the planet’s inhabitants, he encounters a beast and stuns it]
Bones: Dammit, man! That was our ride! You just stunned our ride!
[the robed figure reveals his face and we see it’s Kirk]
Kirk: Oh, great!
[Kirk hears the planet’s inhabitants getting close to them]
[Kirk and Bones make a run for it as the inhabitants chase after them]
Bones: What the hell did you take?
Kirk: I have no idea, but they were bowing to it!
[as Kirk and Bones continue to run, Kirk calls their shuttle]
Kirk: Kirk to Shuttle One, the locals are out of the kill zone! You’re clear, I repeat, get in there and neutralize the volcano, let’s get out of here!
[we see the shuttle fly into the ash and smoke above a volcano that’s beginning to erupt]
Sulu: We have to do this now! I told the Captain the shuttle wasn’t built for this kind of heat.
[Sulu and Uhura are busy helping Spock get suited up in a heat resistant suit]
Spock: Captain, did the indigenous life form see you?
[Kirk and Bones are continuing to run away from the local inhabitants of Class M planet Nibiru]
Kirk: No, Mr. Spock, they did not!
Spock: The Prime Directive clearly states there can be no interference with the internal development of alien civilization.
Kirk: I know what it says, which is why I’m running through the jungle wearing a disguise! Now, drop out your super ice cube and let’s go! Kirk out!
[back on the shuttle Uhura and Sulu finish suiting up Spock]
Uhura: You’re good.
Sulu: If we’re gonna do this, we gotta do it now! This ash is killing our coils.
Uhura: Are you sure you don’t want me to go instead?
Spock: That would be highly illogical as I’m already outfitted in the heat resistant…
Uhura: Spock, I was kidding.
[she kisses the glass helmet which is covering Spock’s face]
Uhura: You got this.
Sulu: Guys, we have to go! Now!
[we see the local inhabitant’s closing in on Kirk and Bones and throwing spears at them; back on the shuttle]
Uhura: I’ll see you in ninety seconds.
[the bottom of the shuttle opens and Spock falls through into the volcano]
[as Spock is lowered into the volcano, the turbulence in the shuttle gets worse and Sulu sees the overheating warning signal]
Sulu: I can’t hold this position. Spock I gotta pull you back up!
Spock: Negative, this is our only chance to save this species. If this volcano erupts, the planet dies.
Sulu: Pull him back up. Now!
[Uhura pulls the lever to pull Spock’s line back up, but his line burns off and he falls onto a rock inside the volcano]
Uhura: Spock, are you okay?
[Spock rises and looks at the hot magma erupting inside the volcano]
Spock: I am, surprisingly, alive. Standby.
Uhura: We have to get him back! I’ll suit up and we’ll go down.
Sulu: We have to abandon the shuttle.
Uhura: We can’t just leave him, Sulu!
Sulu: We don’t have a choice! Uhura, I’m sorry.
Uhura: Spock, we’re going back to the Enterprise. We’ll get you out of there.
Sulu: Captain, I’m ditching the shuttle. You gotta make it to the Enterprise on your own.
Sulu: Uhura, are you ready to swim?
Uhura: I’m ready.
[back on the planet, Kirk and Bones continue to run through the forest]
Bones: Kirk, the beach is that way!
Kirk: We’re not going to the beach!
Bones: Oh, no, no, no!
[Kirk places the item he’d stolen from the locals on a tree and suddenly the locals stop chasing them and start bowing, Kirk and Bones continue to run on]
Bones: I hate this!
Kirk: I know you do!
[Kirk and Bones reach a cliff which they jump off of into the ocean and swim underwater where the Enterprise is hidden and enter the ship]
[as Kirk and Bones enter the Enterprise, they are met by Scotty]
Scotty: Do you have any idea how ridiculous it is to hide a starship on the bottom of the ocean? We’ve been down here since last night. The salt water’s going to ruin the…
Kirk: Scotty, where’s Spock?
Scotty: Still in the volcano, sir.
[inside the volcano, Spock manages to set his device up to begin neutralizing the volcano; back in the Enterprise, Kirk and Bones run to the bridge]
Chekov: Captain on the bridge!
Kirk: Lieutenant, do you have an open channel to Mr. Spock?
Uhura: The heat’s frying his comms but we still have contact.
Spock: I have activated the device, Captain. When the countdown is complete the reaction should render the volcano inert.
Bones: Yeah, and that’s gonna render him inert.
Kirk: Can we at least use the transporters?
Sulu: Negative, sir.
Chekov: Not with these magnetic fields.
Kirk: I need to beam Spock back to the ship, give me one way to do it.
Chekov: Uh…maybe if we had a direct line of sight, if we…
Scotty: No way, man! You’re talking about an active volcano, Sir, if that thing erupts I cannot guarantee we can withstand the heat.
Sulu: I don’t know that we could maintain that kind of altitude.
Spock: Captain. Our shuttle was concealed by the ash cloud but the Enterprise is too large. If you utilize a rescue effort, it will be revealed to the indigenous species.
Kirk: Spock, nobody knows the rules better than you, but there has got to be an exception.
Spock: None. Such action violates the Prime Directive.
Bones: Shut up, Spock! We’re trying to save you, dammit!
Spock: Doctor, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.
Kirk: Spock, we’re talking about your life!
Spock: The rule cannot be broken under any circumsta…
[his line starts breaking up]
[turning to Uhura]
Kirk: Try to get him back online.
Chekov: Ninety seconds to detonation.
Kirk: If Spock were here and I were there, what would he do?
Bones: He’d let you die.
[as Spock is preparing to die in the volcano, Kirk breaks the Prime Directive and has the ship rise from the ocean, exposing them to the inhabitants but successfully beaming Spock out, just as the device finishes crystallizing the volcano’s magma]
[after Spock has been beamed up into the Enterprise from the volcano, Kirk and Bones run toward Spock]
Kirk: Spock! Are you alright?
Spock: Captain, you let them see our ship.
Bones: He’s fine.
Uhura: Bridge to Captain Kirk.
Kirk: Yes, Lieutenant?
Uhura: Is Commander Spock on board, sir?
Kirk: Safely and sound.
[Uhura breathes a sigh of relief]
Uhura: Please notify him that his device has successfully detonated.
Kirk: Did you hear that? Congratulations, Spock. You just saved the world.
Spock: You violated the Prime Directive.
Kirk: Oh Come on, Spock. They saw us, big deal.
[back on the alien planet we see the locals all gathered in the red forest and drawing the outline of the Enterprise on the ground]
[London 2259,55 – we see a couple, the Harewoods, drive to the hospital to visit their sick daughter; the mother gives the unconscious child a teddy bear and the father, Thomas, stands by the bed with tears in his eyes, Thomas then steps outside for some air when he’s approached by a stranger]
Khan: I can save her.
Thomas Harewood: What did you say?
Khan: Your daughter, I can save her.
Thomas Harewood: Who are you?
[at his home, Kirk is interrupted in the middle of the night by his phone ringing, we see him come out from under the sheet with two women next to him]
Girl #1: Come on, Jim. Come on, let it go. Jim!
[Kirk lunges for his phone on the ground]
Girl #2: You’re not actually gonna answer that, are you?
[we see Kirk and Spock walking up to the Starfleet Headquarters in San Francisco]
Kirk: Spock, I’m telling you, this why he called, I can feel it.
Spock: Your feelings aside, I consider it highly unlikely that we will be selected for the new program.
Kirk: Why else would Pike want to see us? Forget about seniority, they gave us the newest ship in the fleet. Who else are they gonna send out?
Spock: I can think of numerous the possibilities.
Kirk: A five-year mission, Spock! That’s deep space, that’s uncharted territories! Think how incredible that’s gonna be.
[to the two women walking past them]
Kirk: Hello, ladies. Jim Kirk.
[in Pike’s office, Kirk and Spock stand as Pike reads their report on their last mission]
Pike: That’s the way you describe the survey in Nibiru in your Captain’s Log.
Kirk: Ah, yes, sir. I didn’t wanna waste your time going over the details.
Pike: Yeah. Tell me more about this volcano. Data says it was highly volatile, if it were to erupt, it would wipe out the planet.
Kirk: Well, let’s hope it doesn’t, sir.
Pike: Something tells me it won’t.
Kirk: Uh…well, sir, volatile is all relative. Maybe our…data was off.
Pike: Or maybe it didn’t erupted, because Mr. Spock detonated a cold fusion device inside it, right after a civilization that’s barely invented the wheel, happen to see a Starship rising out of their ocean!
Pike: That is pretty much how you describe it, is it not?
[Kirk looks at Spock accusingly]
Kirk: You filed the report? Why didn’t you tell me?
Spock: I incorrectly assumed that you would be truthful in your Captain’s Log.
Kirk: Yeah, I would have been if I didn’t have to save your life.
Spock: A fact for which I am immeasurably grateful and the very reason I felt it necessary to take responsibility for the actions taken by….
Kirk: Responsibility? Yeah. That’d be so noble, Pointy, if you weren’t also throwing me under the bus.
Spock: Pointy? Is that a derogative reference?
Pike: Gentlemen, Starfleet’s mandate is to explore and observe, not to interfere.
Spock: Had the mission according to plan, Admiral, the indigenous species would never have been aware of our interference.
Pike: That’s a technicality.
Spock: I am Vulcan, sir. We embrace technicality.
Pike: You givin’ me attitude, Spock?
Spock: I’m expressing multiple attitudes simultaneously, sir. To Which are you referring?
Pike: Out. You’re dismissed, Commander.
[Spock looks at Kirk before walking out of the office]
Pike: Do you have any idea what a pain in the ass you are?
Kirk: I think so, sir.
Pike: So, tell me what you did wrong? What’s the lesson to be learned here?
Never trust a Vulcan.
Pike: Oh, see. You can’t even answer the question. You lied! On an official report, you lied. You think the rules don’t apply to you cause you disagree with them.
Kirk: That’s why you talked me into signing up in the first place, that’s why you gave me your ship.
Pike: I gave you my ship because I saw greatness in you. And now I see you haven’t got an ounce of humility.
Kirk: What was I suppose to do? Let Spock die?
Pike: You’re missing the point.
Kirk: I don’t think I am, sir! What would you have done?
Pike: I wouldn’t have risked my first officer’s life in the first place. You were supposed to survey a planet, not alter its destiny! You violated a dozen Starfleet regulations and almost got everyone under your command killed.
Kirk: Except I didn’t! You know how many crew I’ve lost since I took captainship?
Pike: That’s your problem!
Kirk: Not one!
Pike: You think you’re infallible!
Kirk: Not one.
Pike: You think you can’t make a mistake, it’s a pattern with you! The rules are for other people.
Kirk: Some should be.
Pike: And what’s worse is you’re using blind luck to justify you’re playing God!
Pike: Given the circumstances, this has been brought to Admiral Marcus’ attention. He convened a special tribunal to which I was not invited. You Understand what Starfleet regulations mandate be done at this point?
[there’s a pause as Kirk takes this in]
Pike: They’ve taken the Enterprise away from you. They’re sending you back to the academy.
Kirk: Admiral, listen…
Pike: No, I’m not listening. Why should I listen?
Kirk: I can justify it. I…I…
Pike: You don’t listen to anybody but yourself!
Kirk: I understand the regulation, but every decision I’ve made…
Pike: I can’t listen. you don’t comply with the rules, you don’t take responsibility for anything, and you don’t respect the chair. You know why? Because you’re not ready for it.
[in London, we see Khan producing a vile of his blood which Harewood transfuses into his daughter’s blood, saving her life, later we see Harewood, in a Starfleet uniform, walking into the London headquarters, he sends a transmission to Marcus and drops a ring into a cup of water which dissolves and causes an explosion, blowing up the building; back in San Francisco, we see Kirk drinking at a bar, when Pike shows up]
Kirk: How did you find me?
Pike: I know you better than you think I do. The first time I found you, it was in a dive like this. Remember that? You got your ass handed to you.
Kirk: No, I didn’t.
Pike: You don’t?
Kirk: No, that’s not what happened.
Pike: That was an epic beating.
Kirk: No, it wasn’t.
Pike: You had napkins hanging out of your nose. Did you not?
Kirk: Yeah, that was a good fight.
Pike: A good fight? I think that’s your problem right there.
[Kirk looks at Pike]
Pike: They gave her back to me. The Enterprise.
[there’s a moment’s pause as Kirk looks away, taking in the news]
Kirk: Congratulations. Watch your back with that first officer, though.
Pike: Spock’s not gonna be working with me, he’s been transferred. USS Bradbury. You’re gonna be my first officer.
[Kirk looks at Pike again]
Pike: Yeah, Marcus took some convincing. But every now and then, I can make a good case.
Kirk: What…what did you tell him?
Pike: The truth. That I believe in you. and if anybody deserves a second chance, it’s Jim Kirk.
[there’s a moment’s pause]
Kirk: I don’t know what to say.
Pike: That is a first. It’s gonna be okay, son.
[they get interrupted as Pike receives a message]
Pike: An emergency session at Daystrom. That’s us.
Pike: Suit up.
[on his way to the emergency session, Kirk runs into Spock]
Kirk: Not any more, Spock, first officer. I was demoted and you were reassigned.
[they get into the elevator together]
Spock: It is fortunate that the consequences were not more severe.
[Kirk sighs to himself]
Kirk: You gotta be kidding me.
Spock: Captain, it was never my intention to…
Kirk: I’m not Captain. I saved your life, Spock. You wrote a report, I lost my ship.
[the elevator doors open and Kirk starts walking off with Spock following him]
Spock: Commander, I see now I should have alerted you to the fact that I submitted the report.
Kirk: Well, I’m familiar with your compulsion to follow the rules, but you see, I can’t do that. Where I come from, if someone saves your life you don’t stab him in the back.
Spock: Vulcan’s cannot not lie.
Kirk: Then I’m talking to the half-human part of you, alright? Do you Understand why I went back for you?
[they are interrupted by Captain Abbot]
Captain Abbot: Commander, Spock? Frank Abbott, USS Bradbury. Guess you’re with me.
Spock: Yes, Captain.
[Abbot walks off and Kirk looks at Spock]
Kirk: The truth is, I’m gonna miss you.
[Kirk waits for Spock to say something, but Spock says nothing, Kirk sighs and walk away]
[Marcus addresses the Captains and first officers gathered at the emergency meeting]
Marcus: Thank you for meeting on such short notice. Be seated.
[everyone in the room takes their seat]
Marcus: By now some of you have heard what happened in London. The target was a Starfleet data archive, now it’s a damn hole in the ground. Forty-two men and women are dead. One hour ago, I received a message from a Starfleet officer who confessed to carrying out this attack, that he was being forced to do it by this man.
[a photo of Khan is shown on everyone computer monitor]
Marcus: Commander John Harrison. He’s one of our own and he is the man responsible for this act of savagery. For reasons unknown, John Harrison has just declared a one man war against Starfleet and under no circumstances are we to allow this man to escape Federation space. You here tonight represent the senior command of all the vessels in the region. And in the name of those we lost, you will run this bastard down. This is a manhunt, pure and simple, so let’s get to work.
there’s a moment’s pause
Marcus: Earth’s Perimeter sensors have not detected any warp signatures leaving the system, so we know he can’t be far.
[as Marcus talks Kirk looks at his monitor and the data gathered on Khan and his attack in London]
Marcus: You will park your ships in a blockade formation and deploy search vehicles and landing parties to run down every lead. This man has shown willingness to kill innocent people, so the rules of engagement are simple. If you come across this man, and fear for your life and the lives of those nearby, you are authorized to use deadly force on the subject.
[as Marcus is talking Kirk looks at the reconstructed images of Khan at the London attack, Kirk notices Khan carrying a bag, Kirks whispers to Pike]
Kirk: What’s in the bag?
Pike: James, not now.
Kirk: It doesn’t seem odd to you that he targeted an archive? It’s like bombing a public library.
Marcus: Chris, everything okay there?
Pike: Yes, sir. Mr. Kirk is just acquainting to his new position as first officer.
Marcus: You got something to say, Kirk, say it. Tomorrow is too late.
Kirk: I’m fine, sir, My apologies.
Marcus: Spit it out, son. Don’t be shy.
Kirk: I ju… Why the archive? All that information is…is public record. If he really wanted to damage Starfleet, this could just be the beginning.
Marcus: The beginning of what, Mr. Kirk?
Kirk: Sir, in event of an attack, protocol mandates that senior commands gather, Captains and first Officers, at Starfleet HQ, right here…in this room.
Spock: It is curious Harrison would commandeer a jump ship without warp capability…
[at that moment, a red light flashes behind them, they look out the window and see a ship coming towards them]
[Kirk turns to the other and shouts]
Kirk: Clear the room!
[the ship opens fire]
Pike: We need air defense team, Daystrom conference room!
[Kirk manages to grab a gun and starts shooting at the ship, during the shooting Kirk notices the ship’s turbines, so he ties his gun to a hose and tosses it at the turbine, which sucks up the hose and pulls it off the wall and into the turbines which takes down the ship, but Kirk notices Khan beaming out before the ship is destroyed; during the attack Pike gets shot and Spock pulls him out of line of fire, he sits by Pike as he dies after which Kirk finds them and starts crying and embracing Pike’s body]
[in the morning after Khan’s attack at Starfleet, we see Kirk sat alone in his office when he gets a call]
Spock: Commander, Mr. Scott has found something in the wreckage of Harrison’s ship. He has asked to see us right away.
[Kirk and Spock meet up with Scotty]
Scotty: Captain, I found this in the crashed jump ship, sir. This is how the bastard got away.
Kirk: What do you mean?
Scotty: It’s a portable transwarp beaming device.
Kirk: Well, can you figure out where he went?
Scotty: I already did, sir, and you’re not gonna like it. He gone to the one place we…we just can’t go.
[Kirk and Spock take their news about Khan’s whereabouts to Marcus]
Kirk: Admiral, sir, he’s not on Earth. He’s on Kronos, sir. I request my command be reinstated and your permission to go after him.
[to the officers in the room]
Marcus: Give us a minute.
[the other officers leave the room]
Kirk: Yes, sir.
Marcus: So Harrison has gone to the Klingon homeworld? Is he defecting?
Kirk: Uh…we’re not sure, sir.
Spock: He is taking refuge in the Ketha Province, a region uninhabited for decades.
Kirk: He’s gotta be hiding there, sir. He knows if we even go near Klingon space, it’ll be all out war. Starfleet can’t go after him, but I can. Please, sir.
Marcus: All out war with the Klingons is inevitable, Mr. Kirk. If you ask me, it’s already begun. Since we first learned of their existence, the Klingon Empire has conquered and occupied two planets that we know of, fired on our ships half a dozen times. They are coming our way. London was not an archive, it was a top secret branch of Starfleet designated to Section 31. They were developing defense technologies and training our officers to gather intelligence on the Klingons, and any other potential enemy that means to do us harm. Harrison was one of our top agents.
Kirk: Well, now he’s a fugitive and I wanna take him out.
Marcus: Pike always said you were one of our best and brightest. You should have heard him defend you. He’s the one who talked you into joining Starfleet, wasn’t he?
Kirk: Yes, sir.
Marcus: Did he ever tell you who talked him into joining?
[Kirk looks at Marcus, realizing that Marcus was the one]
Marcus: His death is on me, and yours can’t be.
Kirk: Sir, please! All I…
Marcus: Mr. Spock, you said that the Province where Harrison is hiding uninhabited?
Spock: Affirmative, sir.
Marcus: As part of our defensive strategy, 31 developed a new photon torpedo.
[he shows them a 3D image of the torpedo]
Marcus: Long range and untraceable, it would be invisible to Klingon sensors. I don’t want you hurt, but I want to take him out. You park on the edge of the Neutral Zone, your lock on to Harrison’s position, you fire, you kill him and hall ass.
Kirk: Permission to reinstate Mr. Spock as my first officer.
[Spock looks at Kirk in surprise]
[Bones meets up with Kirk as he makes his way to the shuttle for the Enterprise]
Bones: Jim, where were you?
Kirk: For what?
Bones: Your medical exam. Ten hours ago, you were in a damn fire-fight. Now, it’s my duty to ex…
Kirk: I’m fine, Bones.
Bones: The hell you are.
Kirk: I’m fine.
[Kirk turns and boards the shuttle]
Kirk: A status report, Mr. Spock.
[Kirk takes his seat, which is one seat away from Spock]
Spock: The Enterprise should be ready for launch by the time we arrive.
Kirk: Good, good.
[we see Bones taking the seat behind Kirk and using a device to examine Kirk]
Spock: Captain, thank you requesting my reinstatement.
Kirk: You’re welcome.
Spock: As I’m again your first officer, it is now my duty to strongly object to our mission perimeters.
Kirk: of course it is.
Spock: There is no Starfleet regulation that condemns a man to die without a trial, something you and Admiral Marcus are forgetting. Also, preemptively firing torpedoes at the Klingon homeworld goes against…
Kirk: You yourself said the area is uninhabited. There’s only going to be one casualty, and in case you weren’t listening, our orders have nothing do with Starfleet regulation.
Bones: Wait a minute, we’re firing torpedoes at the Klingons?
Spock: Regulations aside, this action is morally wrong.
Kirk: Regulations aside, pulling your ass out of a volcano was morally right! I didn’t win any points for that.
Bones: Woh, Jim, calm down.
Kirk: I’m not gonna take ethics lessons from a robot.
Spock: Reverting to name calling suggests that you are defensive, and therefore, find my opinion valid.
[at that moment Bones places a device on Kirk’s face as he continues to examine him]
Kirk: I wasn’t asking for your opinion. Bones, get that thing off my face.
Spock: Captain, our mission could start a war with the Klingons. And it is, by its very definition, immoral. Perhaps, you should take a requisite time to arrive at this conclusion for yourself.
Carol: Captain Kirk, Science officer Wallace. I’ve been assigned to Enterprise by Admiral Marcus. These are my transfer orders.
[she holds out the order to Kirk]
Spock: You requested an additional science officer, Captain?
Kirk: I wish I had.
[Kirk reads Carol’s credentials]
Kirk: Lieutenant Carol Wallace. Doctorate in Applied Physics, specializing in advanced weaponry.
Spock: Impressive credentials.
Carol: Thank you.
Spock: But redundant now that I’m back aboard the Enterprise.
Kirk: Yes, and yet, the more the merrier.
Kirk: Have a seat, doctor.
[Carol takes the seat between Kirk and Spock]
Shuttle Pilot: Shuttle crew, standby for lift off.
[we see the shuttle flying off to the Enterprise]
[as the torpedoes are being boarded onto the Enterprise]
Scotty: No, I’m not signing anything! Now, get these bloody things off of my ship!
[Scotty notices Kirk and the others boarding the Enterprise]
Kirk: Is there a problem, Mr. Scott?
Scotty: Aye, sir. I was just explaining to this gentlemen, that I cannot authorize any weapons on board this ship without knowing what’s inside them.
Spock: Mr. Scott raises yet another point, that…
Kirk: Report to the bridge.
[Kirk gives Spock the document in his hand]
[Spock turns and walks off]
Kirk: Mr. Scott, I understand your concerns, but we need these torpedoes on board.
Scotty: Due respect, sir, but photon torpedoes run on fuel. Now I cannot detect the type of fuel that’s in the compartments on these torpedoes, because it’s shielded. Now I asked for the specifications, but he said…
[he points to the torpedo security guard behind him]
Torpedo Security: It’s classified
Scotty: It’s Classified. So I said, no specs, no signature!
[they all look up to see Sulu standing on the bridge above them]
Sulu: Flight checks complete. We’re good to go, sir.
Kirk: Thank you, Mr. Sulu.
Sulu: Yes, sir.
Scotty: Now, if you’ll excuse me, sir, I have a warp core to prime.
[Scotty turns to walk away and notices Keenser sitting on one of the torpedoes]
Scotty: Get down!
Bones: Jim, your vitals are way off.
Kirk: Report to med bay.
[running after Scotty]
