Kirk's father encounters a Romulan ship coming out of a black hole and dies throwing his own ship at the enemy to protect the crew's escape, among who is his wife and newborn son, thus changing history. Kirk's youth is tumultuous, but finally joins the Starfleet Academy and cheats at the final exam (a computer simulation where one cannot win, programmed by Spock, a Starfleet officer half Vulcan, half Human, who has always had a hard time controlling his emotions). But during the hearing for cheating, all the officers are ordered to leave to Vulca without delay to help with a natural catastrophe. Kirk manages to sneak into the Enterprise thanks to his friend, the Dr. McCoy, and manages to convice the captain that they are throwing themselves at warp speed into a trap laid by the same Romulan ship his father faced in the past. The Romulan captain, Nero, coerces the captain of the Enterprise into joining him, while Kirk (promoted first officer), Sulu and ensign Expendable are sent to deactivate the device that jams communications and transporter (a giant drill, drilling a hole into Vulca). Their mission is a success, but Nero nonetheless manages to send Red Matter into the hole, which turns into a black hole and absorbs the whole planet. Spock's mother dies despite Spock's attempt to save her. Disagreements between him (acting captain) and Kirk about the course to take (regroup with the Federation ships or chase Nero heading to Earth) prompt him to strand Kirk on an ice planet near a Federation outpost. On the planet, Kirk meets Spock from 129 years in the future, who tells him that he tried to save Romulus from a supernova, using Red Matter in order to absorb the star, but failed. Both the Romulan ship and Spock's go back in time through the ensuing black/wormhole, but arrives 25 years earlier than Spock. Nero picks Spock up when he appears on the other end of the wormhole and holds him responsible for the destruction of Romulus and condemns him to watch his own planet being destroyed. Spock and Kirk reach the outpost where they find an “exiled” Scott trying to build a long-distance transporter. Thanks to Spock's knowledge, Scott and Kirk transport aboard Enterprise. Kirk forces Spock to punch him, forcing him to resign his his comission. Kirk, acting captain, chases Nero, and with the help of Spock manage to prevent Nero from destroying Earth. Young Spock finally meets Old Spock, who tells him that they need each other, because this his how it had been in the original reality.
