STAR TREK A PRIVATE LITTLE WAR

Star Trek may be the only show on TV at the time to address Vietnam. They do it pretty indirectly but clearly via a reference to “the 20th century brush wars on the asian continent.” This is Star Trek doing politics right.

Star Trek Into Darkness is a Horrible Movie A Comprehensive Review

JJ Abrams horrible ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ was something he felt strongly about only one aspect of – he wasn’t going to call it what it was – Star Trek 12.

Mad Captains of Star Trek Matt Decker in The Doomsday Machine

The Planet Killer is like the shark from jaws, and the episode is like Jaws in some ways. For one thing, they need a bigger boat, the Enterprise is presumably identical to the Constellation, which couldn’t have fared worse against the Planet Killer.
