The first big screen mission for the crew of the USS Enterprise sees Admiral Kirk (William Shatner) retake the bridge to intercept a deadly forcefield that is heading towards Earth. Gone are the wonky sets of the long-running TV series and in come impressive special effects (courtesy of 2001's Douglas Trumbull) and sure-footed direction from two-time Oscar-winner Robert Wise (although having more in common with his work on The Day The Earth Stood Still than The Sound Of Music). Coming a decade after the end of the TV series, it's great to see the old guard back in action.
