All great moments, my friend.

And the antics of getting Kirk aboard. I PMSL at those moments.....the whole "buddy flick" element of the movie right there.


PSST!
"Gaaahhhh.....STOP IT!"

McCoy: You've got numbtongue!
Kirk: (exasperated) Nudtug?! I hab nudtug?!!

It has been said in this thread before but the Enterprise dropping out of warp in the atmoshphere of Titan was a master stroke. The whole sequence was only a few seconds but the powerful parts of it were -
  • The powerful sounds that E was making when first settling down in the atmosphere after coming out of warp - this was a scene where the noise drew me in and made me feel I was there
  • Cut to the seasoned and well-oiled team of Sulu and Chekov - "Give me half impulse for five seconds and I will do the rest on thrusters". They execute as though they have done this 1000 times. Another mark of the crew coming together into their roles in the way only they can
  • The Enterprise pulling itself up from the atmoshpere and into position. My heart leaps and my mouth opens whenever I see this scene. The message coming across is a ship and crew that is powerful and in command - and ready to strike the master blow in the conflict. The visual aspect of this scene is just stunning.
Now, my second favorite scene is when Spock is engaging the Narada and staring down "all weapons" heading for him. "Captain, there is another ship" and the E drops from warp with all guns blazing on the torpedos. Perfect "Cavalry coming over the hill" scene that just grabs your heart.

Shortly, thereafter, as you see Spock steering the Red Matter ship into the Narada, right as they cut away you get about 1/5 of a second of transporter blur around Spock's head and you just know that everything will be all right.

I needed a cold shower and a cigarette after these final scenes....

Really the best Trek I have EVER seen on the screen....

My jaw dropped in the IMAX version when the Enterprise rises over the dust clouds near Titan. She was larger than life.

Fan called it for sure. I think Jim Kirk being set up for a life of loss and greatness by his dad was it. Brought a tear to me eye

how about when they were in Ambassador's Spocks ship and Kirk said Spock It'll work. I have a lot of favourite moments in the film.

That sequence is probably one of my favorites in the movie.

The Enterprise just zipping to all stop in an instant, with the warp engines powering down.

Then as she rose from the clouds, with the music building to the hero shot framed by Saturn.

The sound mix was fantastic, the visuals stunning, the music as mighty and beautiful as the imagery.

Perfect.

It was a great shot - but I never got to see it IMAX myself. Only regular screens!

When Kirk said it would be my honour commander
I have so many favourite moments
