Gaila. Sweet, green, promiscuous, semi-nekkid Gaila.
4. While newly promoted captain George Kirk is waiting to commit heroic suicide, he and that chick from House debate what to name their infant son. What name does Winona Kirk suggest to her soon to be blown to bits husband?
5. Remember the ubiquitous trailers for Star Trek on every television channel? What crime is tween James T. Kirk (presumably) committing in this sequence, his post-birth introduction in the film?
Driving Without a License

A girl named Uhura.
The choices were "tastes great" and "less filling" and he picked wrong.

Soccer coach. No, really.
Universal Translator Inventor

"At ease, soldier."
"My dad was just like you, only deader."

14. What did Dr. McCoy's ex-wife take in the divorce?
Everything that wasn't nailed down and a few nails just for spite.
His bones. What type of medical procedure is that anyway?
His house, his dog and his mistress. Hot!
The whole damn planet

Gaila, most tempting of all gorgeous green aliens
Hannity, assistant programmer of the Kobayashi Maru
Uhura (women can only resist the Tibby Charm for so long)
Jake Gyllenhaal

An armada of Klingon ships has been destroyed.
A black hole briefly appeared near Vulcan.
An as yet unknown Romulan dialect was picked up near Vulcan.
Vulcan's primary moon is incapable of sustaining human life.
19. How does Kirk beat the unbeatable Kobayashi Maru test?
He cheats like a 1990s baseball slugger, reprogramming the system to disable Klingon shields.
He shuts down the power, ending the simulation before it can win.

Chekov claims he's a security officer on the bridge.
McCoy gives him a vaccine that (literally) sickens him.
Pike temporarily overrules the tribunal's ruling.
Uhuru hides him under her skirt. (Nice pull, brother!)
24. Why is the Enterprise the last starfleet vessel to enter warp?

Spock is late because he's getting berated by Uhura.
Sulu makes a rookie mistake, forgetting to take off the parking brake (or something like that in sci-fi techno babble).
