* AwesomeMusic: The main theme, especially in the opening credits. Something about that crystalline, somber, yet uplifting horn solo sends chills down your spine every time.

** In an episode of ''Series/{{Spaced}}'', Simon Pegg's character, referencing the StarTrekMovieCurse, says it's a well-known fact that every odd-numbered ''Star Trek'' film has sucked. This episode aired in 1999, between ''[[Film/StarTrekInsurrection Insurrection]]'' (number 9 in the series) and ''[[Film/StarTrekNemesis Nemesis]]'' (number 10), neither of which is considered particularly good. Now look at a list of the films in the series and see which number the movie Pegg was in has...

* OlderThanTheyThink: In one article in preparation for the film's release, ''Entertainment Weekly'' addressed [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks hardcore fan outcry]] about the redesign of the ''Enterprise'''s bridge with a "Through the Years" photo comparison of previous bridge sets, pointing out that it's actually been redesigned significantly for previous movies too--it just got more attention in this one, considering the movie's already controversial {{Reboot}} status.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Spock becoming the Captain of the ''Enterprise''. This film seems to go out of its way to treat Kirk's promotion to Captain as a ForegoneConclusion, despite the fact that Spock outranks him for most of the movie, Kirk never graduated from the Academy, and the movie takes place in an AlternateTimeline where [[NothingIsTheSameAnymore nothing is guaranteed to happen exactly like it did in]] ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries The Original Series]]''. Though it might have earned the ire of some fans, it arguably would have made for a much more interesting story if Spock had ''stayed'' Captain after Pike's departure, and Kirk had become his First Officer instead. Not only would it have shaken up the classic dynamic from the TV show, it would have provided an interesting opportunity to see how the stoic Spock would handle being a leader, and to see how the hotheaded Kirk would handle taking orders from someone else.

** In ''The Finest Hours'', Chris Pine plays a complete stickler for the rules who has to learn when it's okay to bend them.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: As SFDebris points out, the villain described in the novelization/comic version[[note]]a working stiff who risks charges of treason to help save his world, working with Spock toward the solution only to have the Vulcans slam the door in his face, dooming his race... and then having nothing to live for but revenge[[/note]] is more complex than what Nero was, even sympathetic, and could've actually outdone Khan. He goes on to state that without this, the version of the villain we get is "Some emo with a trident."

%%* StrangledByTheRedString: Spock and Uhura. Neither of them show any indication that they are in a relationship with anyone and none of their interactions with each other have any romantic overtones at all until TheReveal.

* NeverLiveItDown: Due to this movie as far as the internet is concerned this movie and EVERYTHING JJ Abrams will ever make from this movie on will be nothing but one giant LensFlare, even after Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness and all his other works since then have significantly toned them down.
