THIS AIN'T STAR TREK
The plot is based on the original Star Trek episode "The Space Seed" . The Enterprise finds a drifting ship and Spock and Bones beam onto the ship to investigate. They find three living life forms and one dead life form. Bones takes one life form and leaves. Spock is left with the other life forms, one of which awakens and it happens to be Jenna Haze, a love/sex slave with only one purpose in life - to please men.
Kahn (Nick Manning) awakens back on the Enterprise and enlists the help of Aurora Snow in his plans to take over the Enterprise. Meanwhile, the third body from the drifting ship is beamed up and it is a Vulcan played by Sasha Grey, who has Ponn Farr (a Vulcan condition that induces the desire to mate). When Kirk (Evan Stone) points out that Ponn Farr only effects males, Sasha claims there is a strain that can effect females as well.
Kahn gets Aurora to help him unleash a virus in the sick bay to get Bones out of the way. The only cure for the virus is a great orgasm. Kahn wants Kirk to turn the ship over, telling him he has released this virus throughout the Enterprise. Thankfully, Uhura is on the deck and helps Kirk defeat the virus.
Kahn tries to leave the ship, but Scotty tricks him and he winds back up on the Enterprise and we get the classic Kirk yell "Kahn" and Kahn yells "Kirk". They leave it hanging here, my guess is for a sequel.
What I liked about the movie:
The deck of the Enterprise looked great and so did the Transporter set.
There was some attention to detail given to the costumes. For example, on each person's sleeves you can see the different number of rings denoting their rank.
The writing was really good, with a lot of humor.
Evan Stone made a great Kirk. His acting was spot on “Shatner Acting” and he even cut his hair for the role.
Jenna Haze did a great sex performance and stayed in character during her performance.
Sasha Grey as a Vulcan....of course...since she doesn't show much emotion anyway, this was a perfect role for her.
What I didn't like about the movie:
Except for the Jenna Haze sex scene, the rest of the sex scenes had no fire to them and just seemed to drone on and on (in other words, your standard sex scene, that I've seen time and time again). I understand that on the bonus disc, you can just watch the movie, which is 23 minutes long. So that means sex scenes take up about one and half hours.
Nick Manning made a great looking Kahn, but his acting is a little weak, especially since he had one of the major roles.
Scottie and Bones were hard to recognize, they didn't seem to have anything that let me know who they were, unless of course, Scottie spoke.
While Spock was ok, I think that someone like Tommy Gunn, could have been better in this role. Tony De Sergio was just sort of blah! His biggest thing seemed to be to hold his hand in the classic Star Trek "vee" during his sex scenes.
And a couple of odd things about the movie:
The male actors all received top billing for their parts instead of the normal female billing, with the males as “accessories”.
There was a WTF moment in one scene when all of a sudden Kahn fixes Aurora Snow’s hair.
I would grade This Ain’t Star Trek a solid B.
This Ain't Star Trek starring Jenna Haze, Aurora Snow, Sasha Grey, Jada Fire, Codi Carmichael, Anthony Rosano, Tony de Sergio, Jaymez Doohan, Ero Sennin, Evan Stone, Nick Manning, Cheyne Collins and directed by Axel Braun
