but since some countries began a good THREE Weeks earlier than Korea, many fine-quality CAM versions circulate on the .Net, which began with beginning ancient civilization portion cut and sound out-of-sync .

conspiracy unravels onto climax :

  • incoming Science Officer Carol is found to be Admiral Marcus’ daughter
    (and we see here : Alice Eve in bikini !)
  • reverable Admiral Marcus is traitor
  • 72 photon torpedoes each actually carry Kahn’s crew in suspended cryo sleep


several Easter Eggs including :

  • OMG ! Chief Engineer Scotty infiltrates into the massive USS Vengeance !
  • young Spock crys in tears ?!
  • the /older/ Spock played by Leonard Nimoy makes /another/ cameo appearance
    to illogically reveal secret to counter the mighty Kahn



Alas ! there is a second plot-twist :

  • Captain Kirk die from radiation to save his ship USS Enterprise
  • Super-Human Kahn survives after all


still again, there is a third ~ ofcourse to rationalize the original 1964 classic TV series
