New DVDs: 'Star Trek' is a thrilling ride

"Star Trek" Grade A: A look at how the crew of the Enterprise came together. Chris Pine and Leonard Nimoy star.

The movie plays off the early days of the characters from the original television series against an evil plot that will rip the fabric of the universe apart.

Director J.J. Abrams accomplished what many thought was impossible: He created a tribute to the past while bringing the franchise into the future.

The film boldly goes where so many fans have gone before while still giving them a film that explores great performances and seeks out head-spinning special effects.

The story is so strong even those who don't know the difference between a Romulan and Klingon will enjoy this hyperdrive of a ride.
