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.
The brash James T. Kirk tries to live up to his father's legacy with Mr. Spock keeping him in check as a vengeful Romulan from the future creates black holes to destroy the Federation one planet at a time.
It is the 23rd century. Admiral James T. Kirk is an instructor at Starfleet Academy and feeling old; the prospect of attending his ship, the USS Enterprise--now a training ship--on a two-week cadet cruise does not make him feel any younger. But the training cruise becomes a deadly serious mission when his nemesis Khan Noonien Singh--infamous conqueror from late 20th century Earth--appears after years of exile. Khan later revealed that the planet Ceti Alpha VI exploded, and shifted the orbit of the fifth planet as a Mars-like haven. He begins capturing Project Genesis, a top secret device holding the power of creation itself, and schemes the utter destruction of Kirk. Written by

Excellent well produced movie, great effects, directing, acting, One of The Best Sci-Fi's you'll ever see!
The Wrath of Khan was a complete jump in quality, production and standard
from first movie, The Motion Picture. Ricardo Montauban, a classic actor
best known for his romantic films in his early years, 1950's. One of the
best villains you will ever see in a science fiction movie.
The music was good, however not as good as the predecessor movie's music,
but still good. The directing is also very good, great use of focusing
techniques, close up's, action sequences well done, the usual high standard
that comes from a proficient director like Nicholas Meyer.
The lighting, exterior and interior shots, were well done.
Its a pity that they haven't made a remastered tape, as the movie picture
quality has degraded through the years.
William Shatner's acting was extremely real, moving, believable. Among with
the other main cast, and unlike the previous movie, this movie brought
together that atmosphere that existed in the Original Star trek series.
The dramatic plot that happens towards the end of the movie is indeed, one
of the best scenes you will ever see in motion picture history. Proving
that Star Trek still has emotion. I can not be more clearer than this
unless by giving away the story. Watch it yourself, and you'll be moved by
the greatest acting, heart touching scene ever made.
The special effects composed along with George Lucas were excellent, and in
the year 2000, I feel they would come very close to our standard today. The
better warp entering sequences, battle sequences, and the formation of the
new Genesis planet are very good effects. The chase in the nebula, final
explosion of the Genesis device are effects for you to watch for.
If your like me, you will love the script for its Shakespeare context which
Khan uses effectively throughout the film. I highly recommend you to see
this movie if you haven't already, it's one of the best.
