Storyline

After stopping off at Starbase Yorktown, a remote outpost on the fringes of Federation space, the USS Enterprise, halfway into their five-year mission, is destroyed by an unstoppable wave of unknown aliens. With the crew stranded on an unknown planet and with no apparent means of rescue, they find themselves fighting against a ruthless enemy with a well-earned hatred of the Federation and everything it stands for. Only a rebellious alien warrior can help them reunite and leave the planet to stop this deadly menace from beginning a possible galactic war. Written by Paramount Pictures

Beyond Bad
25 June 2020 | by k-86242See all my reviews

It is JJ Abrams therefore originality or amusement is nowhere to be found.

I was also shocked how bad the effects were. They looked as if they were rendered on a 386 Intel processor.
