"You know your father was captain of a starship for twelve minutes. He saved 800 lives, including your mother's and yours. I dare you to do better."
– Christopher Pike to Jim Kirk, 2255 (Star Trek)
The destruction of the USS Kelvin was the opening sequence for 2009’s Star Trek, introducing a new generation of fans to Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future. The destruction of this ship split the original Star Trek timeline and created a new alternate timeline with a fatherless Kirk and an emotional Spock.
