- “舰长日志，星历2263.2。今天是我们在太空中的第966天，五年任务已经过去了三年，我们在太空中待的时间越长，就越难以搞清楚今天和明天之间的区别，这种缺乏脚踏实的生活相当具有挑战性——毕竟船上的重力都是人造的。不过话又说回来，就算长期滞留外太空生活再艰难，船员们依旧会牺牲小我，以积极的态度来应对他们的工作。我们不断地探寻着新生命，好为将来建立坚实的外交关系打下基础。随着在未知领域飘荡的时间持续增长，飞船的耐用性也在不断地经受着考验，幸运的是，工程部在斯考特先生的带领下正倍加努力地工作。飞船内部拥挤的生活环境无疑对船员们的人际关系产生深切影响，有些变得更好，而有些……就变得糟糕。至于我本人？事情就变得有些迷茫了，我们走得越远，我就越发疑惑自己未来目标究竟在何方？假如宇宙真的是无穷无尽的，那么我们岂不是一只在追逐着一个遥不可及的梦想？企业号准备在约克城星际基地进行补给，那是星际联邦最新、最先进的基地，没准从繁忙的工作中稍微解脱下可以给我的疑惑找到些许答案。（Captain's Log, Stardate 2263.2. Today is our 966th day in deep space - A little under three years into our five year mission. The more time we spend out here, the harder it is to tell where one day ends and the next one begins. It can be a challenge to feel grounded, when even the gravity is artificial. But while we do what we can to make it feel like home, the crew, as always, continues to act admirably despite the rigors of our extended stay here in outer space, the personal sacrifices they made. We continue to search for new lifeforms in order to establish firm diplomatic ties. Our extended time in uncharted territory has stretched the ship's mechanical capacities but fortunately our engineering department, led by Mr. Scott, is more than up to the job. The ship aside, prolonged cohabitation has definitely had effects on the interpersonal dynamics. Some experiences for the better and some for the worse. As for me, things have started to feel a little episodic. The farther out we go, the more I find myself wondering what it is we are trying to accomplish. But if the universe is truly endless, then are we not striving for something forever out of reach? The Enterprise is scheduled for re-provisioning stop at Yorktown, the Federation's newest, most advanced starbase. Perhaps a break from routine will offer up some respite from the mysteries of the unknown.）”
The stardate is 2263.2. It has been nine hundred and sixty-five days since the Enterprise began its five-year mission. The USS Enterprise arrives at Starbase Yorktown, an extensive deep space colony containing a large city, to replenish dwindling supplies while the crew takes shore leave. Struggling to find continued meaning in his duties as captain, and becoming increasingly affected by thoughts of the death of his father, George Kirk, Kirk applies for a promotion to vice admiral. Meanwhile, Spock and Nyota Uhura deal with a time-out in their relationship; Hikaru Sulu reunites with his husband and their young daughter; and Montgomery Scottstruggles to keep the ship operational. Spock is also distraught to find that his alternate reality counterpart has recently passed away.
An escape pod is found drifting out of a nearby nebula and its occupant, Kalara, claims her ship is stranded on the planet Altamid, which is located past the dangerous, unexplored nebula that will block communications withStarfleet. Kirk volunteers the Enterprise for the rescue mission, and they get through the nebula with some difficulty, and eventually arrive at Altamid, which Spock finds to be a sparsely-populated class M world. Not long after arrival, the Enterprise comes under attack from a swarm of thousands of small, heavily-armed alien ships. Kirk orders a counterattack, but the Enterprise is overwhelmed by the enemy's sheer volume and strength; the ship's navigational deflector and warp nacelles being destroyed within minutes.
With the Enterprise crippled and helpless, several of the attacking ships latch on, and a boarding party commanded by the swarm's leader, Krall, boards the ship. They make their way to the ship's vault, and on the way there Krall captures and drains the life force from several Enterprise crewmen, leaving them as withered husks. Scott attempts to restore power to the ship's impulse drive by feeding it from the warp core, but Krall orders the swarm to resume its attack. They destroy the neck section of the Enterprise, separating the saucer and engineering hulls, and leaving the saucer powerless due to Scotty's jerry rigging, leaving no way of switching over to the saucer's reserve power without a separation. Spock and Dr. McCoy are in a turbolift car that is ejected into space and subsequently captured by a swarm craft, but they managed to get into the craft and overpower its occupants.
Krall arrives at the ship's vault. However, Kirk gets to the artifact first and gives it to Ensign Syl before ordering the crew to abandon ship. As the separated engineering hull begins to disintegrate, most of the crew escape inescape pods, only for the swarm ships to capture them and drag them back to the planet. Seeing this, Scott fires himself out of the ship in a photon torpedo casing.
Kirk goes to separate the saucer from the neck but Krall comes up to him and they fight before Kirk can initiate the separation. Uhura goes on to separate saucer and gets left behind with Krall in the neck section while Kirk is on the other saucer side.
Kirk reaches the bridge, which by now is occupied only by Sulu, Chekov, Kalara and a few other crewmen. However, Chekov reports that the saucer is too badly damaged to keep in orbit, and will crash within minutes. Kirk orders the remaining crew to abandon the ship by Kelvin pods once it enters the atmosphere (though everyone except for himself, Chekov, and Kalara are also captured), and is the last person to leave theEnterprise. Moments later, the saucer crashes into a mountain range, and what remains of it crash-lands in a field, embedding itself some way into the earth.
Scott, who has landed elsewhere, is saved from some of the planet's unruly inhabitants by a scavenger namedJaylah and taken to her makeshift home, which he discovers to be the wreckage of USS Franklin, which went missing almost one hundred years ago. Meanwhile, the swarm craft hijacked by Spock and McCoy crash-lands on the planet, badly injuring Spock and forcing McCoy to perform some very hasty surgery in order to save his life.
Meanwhile, Kirk and Chekov force Kalara to admit she lured the Enterprise into a trap, claiming that Krall promised to return her crew to her in exchange for the Enterprise and her own crew. With their tricordershaving insufficient range to locate the rest of the crew, the trio board the crashed saucer in order to use its sensors, and Kirk pretends to go to retrieve the artifact, only for Kalara to turn on him and reveal that her "crew" never existed; she's been in league with Krall from the very start. Fortunately, Kirk had seen through her, and Chekov rescues him as more of Krall's troopers arrive. Outnumbered and trapped, Kirk ignites the fuel tank for the saucer's maneuvering thrusters, which allows them to escape, but also causes the saucer to flip over, killing Kalara and the troopers, and causing the fuel tanks to explode, leaving the mostly-destroyed saucer as all that remains of the USS Enterprise.
Krall demands the artifact, threatening to kill Sulu if he does not get it. Syl relents and gives Krall the artifact, which he reveals to be the final component of a weapon that attacks organic tissue called the Abronath that he intends to unleash on Starbase Yorktown. Krall then tests the weapon on Syl, dissolving her completely in the process.
After discovering that the alien artifact originated from this planet, Spock reveals to McCoy that he is reconsidering his place in Starfleet after Spock Prime's death. The two are then attacked by the Swarm only to be saved by Scott, who has repaired Franklin's transporter system.
When Kirk, Chekov, and Jaylah arrive, the group formulates a plan to infiltrate Krall's base. Jaylah is initially fearful of this, remembering the death of her family at the hands of Krall and his people, but Scott and Kirk are able to persuade her to help out.
As Krall departs for Starbase Yorktown, the quintet rescues the crew before repairing the Franklin and setting a course for Starbase Yorktown. Spock and McCoy beam aboard an attacking drone ship and discover a way to disrupt the drones' cohesion, allowing the Franklin and the Starbase to destroy much of the drone fleet using discordant noise on a very-high frequency (VHF), provided courtesy of Jaylah's collection of "classical" late 20th century music.
After a brief battle between the swarm and Yorktown's defenses, Krall still manages to board Starbase Yorktown despite the Battle of Yorktown. He prepares to deploy the bioweapon, leading to a chase through the base, which eventually culminates in the Franklin and the few remaining swarm ships crashing near the starbase's central control complex.
As they look for him, Uhura learns from the ship's video logs that Krall's original name is Balthazar Edison and that he was born human. Before his sudden disappearance, Krall had been captain of the Franklin. He had been declared "missing in action" by Starfleet, and had ended up living on Altamid, which was a former mining colony of an alien species known as the Ancient Ones, who had left drone equipment and other technology behind. Krall, and at least three of his crewmates, had used the remains of this technology to prolong their lives, and to build new military vessels. However, the use of the life-extension technology had also rendered the former members of the Franklin unrecognizable as humans, because they are partly combined with the physical attributes of other species which have been lured to Altamid by them.
Krall/Edison, steals a command division Starfleet uniform and has reverted to a mostly-Human appearance after draining the life force from several more Enterprise crewmembers to heal the injuries he suffered when his ship was intercepted/crushed by the Franklin in a Sulu smackdown manoeuvre. Kirk confronts Krall in the life support hub, and they fight in anti-gravity and weightless conditions in life support sections of the Starbase. Krall/Edison expounds his theory that humanity needs a state of conflict in which to progress, and that the Federation has stifled this process by bringing about peace in large areas of the galaxy. The fight ends with both Krall/Edison and the Abronath bioweapon being ejected into space, where the Abronath devours him.
Kirk is rescued from suffering the same fate by Spock and McCoy in their hijacked drone.
Commodore Paris closes the unsolved cases of the fate of Captain Edison and the crew of the USS Franklin. She commends Kirk for his actions and informs him that his promotion to the admiralty is assured. However, Kirk respectfully declines the offer - his experience having rejuvenated his spirit to be a Starfleet officer, stating that "admirals don't fly." Remaining a starship captain, Dr. McCoy leads Kirk to a gathering where he has planned a surprise birthday party for his friend. At a loss for words, Kirk instead raises a toast to the late starship Enterprise and to their fallen comrades. Spock allows himself a look at some of Ambassador Spock's personal effects and finds a photograph of him and his prime reality comrades on the bridge of their Enterprise. Reminding himself of his earlier discussion with Dr. McCoy, Spock elects to live as his alternate self did and remains in Starfleet. Kirk offers his condolences on Ambassador Spock's passing to his friend, which Spock accepts and begins to renew his relationship with Uhura. A despondent Jaylah, also present at the gathering, has consumed a large number of alcoholic beverages, which she had been told would "take her edge off", but is clearly not having much of an effect. Hoping to boost her spirits, Scotty presents Jaylah with an acceptance letter into Starfleet Academy, courtesy of a few strings pulled by Kirk, who also warns her that Starfleet has many rules but not to follow all of them.
As Kirk and Spock look out of a massive window, they view the construction of a new starship. Considering the perils that had befallen the Enterprise and her crew since they were first assembled five years earlier, McCoy questions whether or not they really should go back out into space. As the starship finishes construction, its primary hull proudly displays her name and registry: USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-A. Kirk, Spock, Scotty, Bones, Sulu, Chekov, and Uhura can be heard taking turns paraphrasing Zefram Cochrane.
- "Space: The final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: To explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no one has gone before."
