After a seven-year hiatus, the Star Trek franchise was launched back into the public consciousness in with J.J. Abrams’ 2009 film, Star Trek. The motion picture was a huge success, winning both critical and commercial success, and proving a hit with both the uninitiated and die-hard Trekkies Star Trek Science Fiction & Science Fact Navigraphic by musicMagpie.
The follow up to the production is Into Darkness, the twelfth incarnation of Star Trek on the big screen. Shot entirely in California, the film follows Captain Kirk on his mission to both recapture his status as commanding officer aboard the Enterprise and ensnare the dangerous rogue starfleet agent John Harrison. From the start, the action is non stop, with explosions, chases scenes and incredible special effects, carried out with great adeptness by Industrial Light & Magic. As well as breathless excitement, Abrams’s film also incorporates an interesting moral narrative. The picture has already brought in huge numbers at cinemas and has received almost unanimously positive reviews.
