My 4,0 star rating is, and I cannot stress this enough, based on this movie seen as a totally stand-alone movie. It is entertaining and the ffects are well made. The acting and scripts are so-so at times. Seen however as relating to Star Trek and canon-wise I'd rate this between 0,5 to 1,0. The names are there but there are so many changes to everything from weapons to systems to characters that it cannot be seen as a Star Trek original without causing serious headache. Nevertheless a good movie for the younger generations or anyone else who never saw any previous Star Trek series.
