Captain Picard and his crew pursue the Borg back in time to stop them from preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. They also make sure that Zefram Cochrane makes his famous maiden flight at warp speed.
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.
Following Kirk's encounter with Khan that left the Enterprise severely damaged and Spock dead, they return to Starfleet so that Enterprise could be repaired. Kirk's hoping to go back to the newly-created Genesis planet where he laid Spock to rest. But upon arriving, he is told that the Enterprise will not be repaired and that Genesis has become a delicate matter and until it is resolved, no one is allowed to go there or talk about it. McCoy is also acting strangely and is later detained when he starts talking about Genesis. Kirk is visited by Spock's father Sarek, who tells him that he betrayed Spock because being placed on Genesis was not what he would have wanted. He tells Kirk he is supposed to bring Spock's body along with his soul or katra as the Vulcans call it which he passes onto someone, and bring it to Vulcan for the final rites. Sarek assumes Kirk would have it but he does not. Kirk then thinks that Spock may have passed it someone else and realizes McCoy is the one who has... Written by
They totally redid the set for the inside of the turbolifts between this movie and the last one, so the turbolifts look completely different inside, meaning Scotty while attempting to repair the battle damage from the last movie apparently thought it necessary to make drastic changes to the inside of the turbolifts on the way back to space dock.

[Spock's dying words, repeated from the previous film]
Don't grieve, Admiral. It is logical. The needs of the many outweigh...
...the needs of the few.
Or the one. I have been and always shall be your friend. Live long and prosper.

This movie picks up where the last movie left off...well sort of anyway. That movie was full of action, had a great villain, and had a very good and interesting plot. This one has very little action, takes a bit to long to get going, and the villain in this one is Christopher Lloyd who sounds like Christopher Lloyd trying to be a Klingon. It just does not work, and for the most part neither did the movie for me. It is better than the first Star Trek movie, but it shares some of its problems. Also, it really is a bummer they could not get Kristie Alley back for this one as she is missed here too. You also do not get Lenard Nimoy for almost all the movie, granted if he was in it a lot the movie would have to have an entirely different title now wouldn't it? I am not the biggest Star Trek fan though so it is surprising how much I did enjoy the previous one. After that one, watching this one is a bit of a bore and a let down. Still, there are some good things, the finale is rather good, and it is nice to see a movie's sequel progress from one storyline to another with the previous movie not being ignored. It was also nice to see the Genesis planet up close. Still, give me a few more aerial battles.
