After an attack on a Starfleet subdivision in London, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise track fugitive John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) into enemy territory.  Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and his crew must determine who to trust and what the truth might actually be while trying to save themselves and their world.

The film is an action-packed ride from start to finish.  The dialogue is witty and fast-moving and the actors have settled into the characters in this second film.  Benedict Cumberbatch is outstanding as Harrison and Chris Pine proves a worthy adversary as Kirk and Karl Urban and Simon Pegg provide fantastic comic relief as Bones and Scotty respectively.
