Star Trek. Channel 4: 9.00pm
The plot, surprisingly, links from the old Trek universe, as it opens with the heroic demise of James T Kirk's father, as he sacrifices his own life to save that of hundreds of others - including his wife and newborn son. Years later, and Kirk Jr. has grown up to a bit of a charismatic rogue, with a liking of the broads - regardless of their planet of origin. Spock meanwhile, is a man torn between two worlds. Very much a two-hander, with the origins of Kirk and Spock nicely explored, the action kicks in when Eric Bana's Romulan wrong sort carries a grudge through a worm hole. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Eric Bana, Zoe Saldana and Leonard Nimoy star.
