Star Trek Triple Treat (Sci-fi, Action, Adventure)

Before we warp into Strange New Worlds, here’s a quick primer to the Trekkie universe – a triple bill beginning with director J.J. Abram’s reimagining of Star Trek that took the world by storm.

Star Trek (2009) chronicles the early years in the life of James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and his fellow USS Enterprise crew members, including Kirk’s enrolment at Starfleet Academy, his first meeting with Spock (Zachary Quinto) and their battles with time-travelling Romulans from the future.

Eric Bana and Simon Pegg co-star, along with Leonard Nimoy, who reprises his role as the older Spock.

In Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise are called back to Earth after a devastating force from within their organisation leaves the planet in chaos and Starfleet in pieces.

Determined to settle the score, Kirk embarks on a manhunt with the rest of his crew including Spock, Scotty (Pegg) and Chekov (Anton Yelchin) to find the party responsible before their whole world is laid to waste.

Finally, in Star Trek Beyond (2016), after overcoming doubts about his continued role in Starfleet, Kirk leads the crew of the Enterprise as they continue to explore the darkest reaches of space as part of their five-year mission.

Upon arriving for a routine stop at a remote Federation planet, the Enterprise is subjected to a devastating surprise attack by swarms of mysterious alien vessels.

Overrun and with all systems failing, the crew have no option but to abandon ship, leaving them stranded on the surface with limited supplies and no way of sending for help.

After coming across alien warrior Jaylah (Sofia Boutella), Kirk soon discovers that the merciless Krall (Idris Elba) is behind the attack and is readying an army to destroy Starfleet once and for all.

August 28 – 6.30pm.

Paramount Network is available on Astro Channel 713 and unifi Channel 408.
