What order should I watch the Star Trek movies with Chris Pine?

Answered by Robert Flynn

To watch the Star Trek movies featuring Chris Pine in the correct order, you should follow the chronological release order. Here is the recommended viewing order:

1. Star Trek (2009): This film serves as a reboot of the original Star Trek series and introduces a new cast, including Chris Pine as Captain James T. Kirk. It explores the early years of the crew of the USS Enterprise and their first mission together.

2. Star Trek Into Darkness (2013): The sequel to the 2009 film, it continues the adventures of the crew as they face a new threat. Chris Pine returns as Captain Kirk, and the film delves deeper into the relationships and dynamics among the characters.

3. Star Trek Beyond (2016): The third installment in the rebooted series, this film follows the crew as they embark on a mission to rescue their stranded comrades and uncover a dangerous plot. Chris Pine once again portrays Captain Kirk in this action-packed adventure.

By following this order, you will experience the story arc of the new Star Trek films and witness the development of Chris Pine’s portrayal of Captain Kirk. These movies provide a fresh take on the Star Trek universe and are a great starting point for newcomers to the franchise.

It’s worth noting that these films exist in a separate timeline known as the Kelvin Timeline, which diverges from the original Star Trek timeline depicted in the earlier films and TV series. If you’re interested in exploring the original Star Trek movies, they can be watched separately and in a different order.
