In the latest film Kirk and the starship Enterprise go on a galaxy jumping manhunt for the leader of a terrorist attack on StarFleet. Kirk’s skill as a captain are tested as the pursuit leads time into a world at war.
“I think a lot of maturing happens in this film for Kirk, for a man who thinks he knows everything and leads with his gut and leads with his heart, and is all kind of passion and heart,” Pine said during a recent interview. “He’s a man that has to learn to censor himself.”
