The amazing thing is that each of these wonderful young actors did not fall into parody, which could be easy to do when trying to fill the shoes of their predecessors. They each made the roll their own. Even the pretty red head on the bridge who stated a concern when the drill was causing interference with communications and transporter links, was convincing. Casting was perfect, and the stars of the film nailed their performances with subtle little nuances that fleshed out the rolls (Mr. Quinto's tilt of the head on the turbolift to the bridge, the quick dart of Miss Zoe's eyes when she tried to comfort Spock before he beamed to Vulcan; Mr. Chris' simmering anger when Spock said, "You of all people should understand the reasons for this test." Everyone--the actors portraying Sulu, Chekov, and Scotty--as well as Kirk, Spock, Uhura, and the amazing Karl Urban's portrayal of "Bones"--outstanding performances by this ensemble. Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! As amazing as the special effects were, the acting by this crew is what sold the story to me. Big Ups!
