On the eve of retirement, Kirk and McCoy are charged with assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor and imprisoned. The Enterprise crew must help them escape to thwart a conspiracy aimed at sabotaging the last best hope for peace.
The Borg travel back in time intent on preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochrane makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
A massive alien spacecraft of enormous power destroys three powerful Klingon cruisers, entering Federation space. Admiral James T. Kirk is ordered to take command of the USS Enterprise for the first time since her historic five-year mission. The Epsilon IX space station alerts the Federation, but they are also destroyed by the alien spacecraft. The only starship in range is the Enterprise--after undergoing a major overhaul at Spacedock on Earth. Kirk rounds up the rest of his crew, and acquires some new members, and sets off to intercept the alien spacecraft. However, it has been there years since Kirk last commanded the Enterprise... is he up to the task of saving Earth? Written by

The producers and the cast were very worried about their appearances after being away from Star Trek (1966) for ten years. Special lighting and camera tricks were used to hide the cast's aging, and William Shatner went on a near-starvation diet prior to filming. However, in all subsequent Star Trek movies, it was decided to make the aging of the crew part of the story. See more »

Watched this one after few years, didn't remember what it was all
about. Oh yes, it was the one with "V'ger"...aka amazingly beautiful
Persis Khambatta...with her head shaved. Most beautiful bald woman I
can think of right now...
The film is about huge unbeatable "cloud" approaching and threatening
Earth, only thing standing in between is Enterprise with its legendary
crew. It appears I enjoy the film more and more each decade I see it
I thought there was slightly too much time used on introduction and
drafting of old crew, but once the "action" began it kept me on edge of
my seat all the way through. Don't think that "action" I mention was
fighting and shooting, it wasn't. Perhaps lack of silly fighting makes
(all too) many people to say that this film was too long and slow
paced. Well, I disagree - this is exactly the kind of science fiction I
love, you are given chance to use your own imagination. Some say pacing
and the film is similar to Kubrik's 2001...I won't argue against it.
The film had amazing special effects for its time. No, not amazing,
incredible. But don't watch it for special effects only, the real
interest of this film lies in the nature of the alien "cloud" and
Enterprise crew trying to figure it out and trying to cope with it.
Special effects were used as a tool to launch YOUR imagination, as they
This film is probably closest to spirit of original series, without
much campiness though. A thinking man's Star Trek film. What a
wonderful treat. They don't make films like this any more.
