Back in November, Pine, who stars as Capt. Kirk in the new Trek flick, said he not only shares some steamy lip-locking with Rachel Nicholsbut he also predicted a scene in which Zoe Saldana takes off her shirt will "become famous. Adams -directed movie follows the early years of Kirk and Co.
Wrath of Khan turned it around. So why was The Wrath so damn good? And that was all encapsulated in a memorably tender father-and-son final scene.

Stranded on the planet that's ruled by sinister reptilian aliens, they join a freedom fighter Sofia Boutella to save her species and return to Earth. Directed by Justin Lin.

The original TV show was not known for its erotica, although there was that unsteamy snog between captain Kirk and lieutenant Uhura, one of the first on US TV between a white man and a black woman. So it was something of a shock back in November when Chris Pine, who is stepping into William Shatner's loafers as the Enterprise's new head honcho, announced that JJ Abrams' new version would be "sexed up for a new generation". The idea that Kirk and co were planning to set the controls for planet nookie was given credence by a trailer in which Pine appeared in nothing but his underwear, and the new Uhura, Battlestar Galactica's Zoe Saldana, was shown tossing off her shirt.

When the show returns in January — spoilers for the mid-season finale follow — the crew of the Discovery will literally be in a new universe. We also got what I believe is Star Trek's first proper, full-on gay kiss, as well as its first ever sex scene. Unfortunately, the latter turned out to be a PTSD-inducing Klingon-on-human rape, one that shockingly subverted all our expectations about one character.
Star Trek is a franchise that fans and scholars have been dissecting for 50 years — and likely will continue doing so for 50 more. The opportunities for analysis run deeply through the various TV shows and movies, and practically any theme can be identified in one episode or another. This is what makes Star Trek so great.
