So which opening sequence from the two Abramsverse films is your favorite? We have the opening from Star Trek 2009, where Captain Robau and Lieutenant George Kirk sacrifice themselves so the majority of U.S.S. Kelvin crew can escape. Including the infant James T. Kirk. It is a very emotion-packed opening to the Abramsverse. In Star Trek Into Darkness, we have a more traditional teaser set-up on the planet Nibiru. Where Kirk and Spock are trying to save the natives from a super volcano that will cause the species to go extinct. Kirk lures the natives away by stealing a scroll with Spock sets off a giant ice-cube meant to calm the volcano. This one is obviously a wink-nod to the original Star Trek. So which one is the better opening?
