The perfect restart of one of the best sci-fi series that is in crisis 14 years later

The perfect restart of one of the best sci fi series
Star Trek achieved the impossible in 2009. Directed by JJ Abrams, the film breathed new life into what was then 43 years of sci-fi franchise captivated with an exciting storyline and developed fresh new perspectives on old heroes. Today it’s on TV. On TV: Sci-Fi restart, the 4th part of which fans have been hoping for for years

In Star Trek, the genesis of Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and Co. is told in a refreshing new way. Inexperienced starwalkers and hotheads, they have to pull themselves together first and are a far cry from the pros fans will encounter on Starship Enterprise. They should in the guise of the Romulan Nero (Eric Bana) already face a tremendous threat.

Abram’s creative reimagining was a box office success and received critical acclaim (via Metacritic). So it’s no wonder that two sequels of the same storyline have appeared with Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek Beyond. But as of 2020, the franchise has been stuck. Even Chris Pine can’t hold back his Star Trek 4 frustration.
