Media Services at the Movies: Star Trek Into Darkness

The summer blockbuster season is here! “Media Services at the Movies” will look at what big movie is coming out this week, then offer a few movies like it from our collection.

Get out of your Jeffries tube and adjust your Heisenberg compensators: it’s Star Trek season again! Four years after J. J. Abrams gave new life to the storied but creaky space adventure franchise, the director-producer has returned with a new chapter that promises to be darker, more exciting, and possibly featuring even more fan service (Does Benedict Cumberbatch play the evil Khan? Does it matter?). But don’t boldly go just yet: early reviews indicate that the movie’s slam-bang action might’ve taken some of the heart out of the venerable series.

A number of us in Media Services are self-professed Trekkies, so we’re understandably a little excited. We have a big chunk of Star Trek‘s 47 year history in our collection. If you’ve never watched any before, make it so.
