What does a low-budget film released in 1982 have to do with "competing commercially in today's entertainment industry"? That was 27 years ago and yeah, everything has changed.

You make a movie like TWOK today, and you can go one of two ways with it: straight to DVD or suffer the fate of "Serenity.".
Oh horse-frakking-hockey, Dennis. WoK was not "a low budget movie". Paramount switched production over to people from the TV division to make the most effective use of an ECONOMICAL budget. The resulting film looked as good as any other feature of it's type from that day, and arguably better than some umpteen-million dollar CG-fests out there.

Then there's the fact that WoK was NEVER an "effects film" to begin with. It was, and IS, a very character-driven film with good FX thrown in on top.

Any chance of someone posting some actual spoilers again?

Such as - Is Cadet Kirk merely an older undergradute held back from graduation due to the kobiashi maru or did he graduate the 4 year program, serve a few years on the Republic or Farrugut and now goes back for the "5th" command year when the events of the movie unfold.....
I don't believe they are at the point of graduation yet, and the events in the movie immediately follow the Kobayashi Maru incident, so there's no time lapse.

Edit: Those events are in their 3rd year at the academy btw... well... at least Kirk's 3rd year, maybe 4th for everyone else.

So what happens to Kirk's mom?

Any indication of what happens to Kirk between the time we see him drive the car over the cliff as a kid, and when we see him in the bar where he meets Uhura and Pike?

Do we see Spock's pet sehlat in the movie?
She lives. They don't show her after the birth scene, but you know she's alive because of the phone call he gets from his stepdad during hte car scene.

No indication of his life after that scene and between the bar scene.

Well, kinda, he is captain, but he's more "acting" captain during the movie and at the end since he's relief for Pike.

So what does the ending say will ultimately happen to Kirk? Will he have to give up the Enterprise and go back to the Academy? (As it should be?) Where does the "Buckle up!" scene - in which Kirk is wearing a Captain's uniform complete with rank - come in?

And I don't suppose they say what happened to Pike's original XO, do they? If they do, is it Number One?

Alright guys... here it is, the one you've been waiting for. Years from now I will tell my grandchildren the story of seeing Leonard Nimoy and the new Star Trek movie and all I will have to show for it is my blue jeans, arm, grey shirt, popcorn, and drink. They will look at me and say... "that could have been anyone!". I should've kept that hamburger receipt...

They don't. Final scene: He has on his captain's uniform. They show him on the bridge, he does a fantastic kirk-like performance there btw. Then they go to Prime Spock's "Space the final..." speech, then the ending credits.

They didn't really have much Pike backstory.

To those of you who have seen the film. Could the writers have found a creative way to get William Shatner into the film as Kirk?
He could have played Romulus.
