Before Jean-Luc Picard has ever set foot upon the decks of the Enterprise-D and while a young Benjamin Sisko was chief engineer aboard the USS Okinawa, a crew of ragtag First Fleet officers must learn how to live up to the expectations the name of their starship holds: USS Polaris.
1, The keel of the Polaris was laid in 2355, in the Malmö Orbital Yards, as the fifth Avante class starship.
2, She was built in a time when the Federation was centralized, thus bears no other insignia apart from the basic Starfleet pennant.
3, The ship was built for the defence of the Solar System and was considered a big ship for such a small task.
4, She was present in the Federation-Tzenkethi War, the aftermath of the Wolf 359 crisis and was destroyed during the Borg Supercube crisis of 2380.
5, Like all First Fleet ships, her crew consists of only humans, a notion considered obsolete and chauvinistic in her time.
6: Her senior officers are the following:

They were a helpless little army, some tense, others quivering with tears glistening on their pale faces. They were the pallbearers on a funeral, a funeral of a friend. They were old friends, comrades in arms, survivors of many battles. They were veterans. Now they had to face the final descent of a mutual friend.Polaris: The Rebirth6 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This
The Polaris looked dead in the drydock floating in space. Her pearl-grey hull was marred with a phaser blast too many to evade notice. She also looked old, even with her angular nacelles. Altogether, she was an old war horse without another ride left within her. Or so Starfleet had said. Who cared what her crew said? They were, after all, nothing but a bunch of xenophobic First Fleet people, men and women who would never in a lifetime get proper Starfleet status.
Charlotte Ainsworth was crying openly. She was the youngest member of the motley crew, but she was part of the Polaris fam

Trelane tells the Polaris crew that they are part of a grand game between Leah and himself, although the "game" has serious conclusions: the survival or extinction of Humankind. After telling this, Trelane disappears. Captain Noah accuses Leah of using him and his crew as pawns and of why she did not choose a more powerful ship for this role, such as the Enterprise. Leah tells him that the Polaris is not a pawn but the king and that no other ship could fulfil this mission. Before she departs, she tells Noah that she cannot guarantee that the Polaris survives the final confrontation.
02: A mission, a life
Captain Noah calls for his crew on Leah and Trelane and the role of the Polaris in their agenda. He gives all his crewmembers a choice: they can transfer to other ships or stay on the Polaris, the latter meaning that they must face death in the foreseeable future.

The Polaris is greeted by a Cardassian patrol craft commanded by Gul Kalan. The crew seeks asylum in Cardassian territory now that they are hunted fugitives.

On the journey, the Polaris crew must come to terms with their choice on detonating the sunbomb over Kzinhome.

Captain James Tiberius Kirk was having a bad day. He was used to hard decisions of life and death, of war and peace. He knew the immense responsibility that laid upon his shoulders and he knew how great price he had to pay at times and again. Bot now, everything seemed dark, black as the very space his Starship Enterprise was flying through.
Kirk was a starship Captain, some considered him a talented one, some even a hero. For Kirk, now everything mattered not. He was angry, so much that he envied his first officer Spock for his Vulcan nerves. Yes, the Vulcan could always get a grip on himself, but not Kirk. Not after he has heard Admiral Yamamotos message which arrived two hours ago on a top priority subspace channel. According to the message, the Federation could not risk a war with the Klingon Empire under the present conditions. In order to avoid the war, the Federation had to give away the newly discovered border planet Taa-3 to the Klingons, a planet o

With the outbreak of the Tzenkethi War, Earth sends the Fist Fleet starship Polaris to investigate what has lead to the war. The crew of the Polaris, continuing the decades-long tradition, try to support the Tzenkethi, even if it means that they betray the Federation.
02: The Emperor
The Polaris arrives at Tzenketh, where her crew meets the Emperor Jossano. Jossano, a rabid supporter of Tzenkethi expansion, recalls that even his predecessor, the emperor Straha has vowed for the expansionist wars to continue, even though he waged no war due to him honouring his human friends, the crew of an older starship named Polaris.
03: Nightmares of the past
The Polaris travels to Kzinhome, a planet reduced to an almost pre-industrial level after a devastating bombardment from a long-gone war. The Kzinti are now planning a rebellion, hoping to overthrow their Tzenkethi rulers with the aid of the Federation. The Polaris crew must choose who to support.

01: My enemy, my ally
The Polaris is sent to the Wolf system to rendez-vous with a flock of Starfleet vessels en route to Earth. She is intercepted by the USS Mason, captained by the Andorian Kharlin Ruhn. Ruhn beams over the Polaris and asks Ashdown on the proceedings on Earth. Ashdown tells him the proposed secession which Ruhn finds an impossible feat. Ashdown tells him how Earth is slowly succumbing to poverty and hunger, things unheard for centuries, only because of the impossible quotas she must fulfil as a core world. Ruhn, facing a similar situation back on Andoria, understands Ashdown and the Terrans and offers his services between Earth and Starfleet.
02: Chain reaction
While Ruhn is busy negotiating with his superiors on calling back the fleet, the Caitian Space Navy sends two cruisers to meet with the Polaris, asking advice on the proposed Caitian secession. Ashdown, who a few months ago convinced Cait to stay within the Federation, is now astonished. M'

No, this is not about the new movie. When I am writing this, I haven't seen it. This is about You, all you people. You must bloody well know who I am referring to.
When I started to watch Star Trek, all it meant was that the Voyager was on her way home. There was no fucking Enterprise, Federation and all the shit. It was just a cool spaceship with a cool crew. Then I met the other series and I became a Star Trek fan. No, not a Trekkie. Just a guy who enjoys watching Star Trek. Because I DO have a life. I don't like when people call me a Trekkie, the same way I don't like whrn they call me an intellectual. No, I'm a bloody prole who likes to watch Star Trek.
When I started 3D rendering, I chose Trek because I had a .3ds mesh of the Enterprise-E on my HDD. It was not because I was head over heels with Trek. In the meantime, I became engulfed in the artistic value of all the ships. To put it simply, I found them beautiful. Even those old, crappy, campy 60's de

WARNING, CONTAINS SPOILERS
Okay, folks, I watched the movie. I'd like to thank the guys who made the cam version so I could get to get the general picture of the movie before watching it in the cinema.
First of all, this is not a complete, full-blown review. I must watch the movie a few times to understand all the little bits and pieces. This writing is about the general picture of the movie.
Allright then, let's get down to business. It is a fast-paced movie, something that it's not what I expected from a Star Trek movie. I heard that many scenes from cut from the pre-release version, a full edition would probably make the movie a bit slower paced.
Really, everything is happening fast and before you realise it, the movie is over. The whole thing just zooms by with Warp speed. This makes the things a bit confusing at the beginning: I never got how much time did Kirk actually spend at Starfleet Academy. It could be days, it could be years, I don't know.
