A first screening of 'Star Trek' footage has been held in U.K. and the written descriptions of the clips have been offered.
During a press event in London, J.J. Abrams has screened his four finished "Star Trek" clips and now the details of the clips have been shared. Providing major spoilers to the forthcoming sci-fi movie, Empire Online jotted down the detailed story seen in each of the clips shown at the Vue West End in Leicester Square on Tuesday, November 11.
Starting with the first clip, Empire described that the first snippet displays the scene where young and drunk Kirk is involved in a bar fight with a group of cadets while he is having a conversation with Uhura. The fight is stopped when Captain Pike comes into the bar. Sitting down with the young lad, he then tells Kirk not to waste his life and suggests him to join the Starfleet Academy.
The second clip shows that Kirk doesn't get assigned to ships, but he works together with Bones to get himself into the Enterprise by injecting a non-lethal virus, but things turn ugly when he gets an allergic reaction to the injection. But, that is not his only problem as he soon finds out that the Enterprise is flying into a trap.
The third clip serves as the scene where Kirk meets Leonard Nimoy's Spock who has traveled back in time to change the course of history. In the particular scene, Kirk also meets Simon Pegg's Mr. Scott, who has been sent into exile like what happens to Kirk. Meanwhile, the last clip reveals the time the young crew are sent to a rescue mission to stop the Romulan drill on Vulcan. The complete descriptions of each clips can be read at Empire Online.
From the producer of hit monster movie "Cloverfield", J.J. Abrams, comes a new "Star Trek" movie chronicling the early days of James T. Kirk and his fellow USS Enterprise crew members during their time at Starfleet Academy. It teams up young and old actors, like Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Eric Bana, Zoe Saldana and Leonard Nimoy. Paramount Pictures will distribute the film in the U.S. on May 8, 2009.
