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 intended 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.
In the wake of Spock's ultimate deed of sacrifice, Admiral Kirk and the Enterprise crew return to Earth for some essential repairs to their ship. When they arrive at Spacedock, they are shocked to discover that the Enterprise is to be decommissioned. Even worse, Dr. McCoy begins acting strangely and Scotty has been reassigned to another ship. Kirk is forced to steal back the Enterprise and head across space to the Genesis Planet to save Spock and bring him to Vulcan. Unknown to them, the Klingons are planning to steal the secrets of the Genesis Device for their own deadly purpose. Written by

The self-destruct codes for the USS Enterprise apparently have not been changed in decades, as they are identical to those in the original series episode "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield". See more »
The USS Enterprise had more damage markings on the hull at the start of this film then it did at the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
Considering that this film was set immediately after the events of The Wrath of Khan, there is no explanation as to why these mysterious markings appear on the Enterprise. There were three markings on the hull at the end of the previous film, one to the star drive section, one to the neck section, and one to the underside of the saucer section. In this film the star drive section and warp engines are most notable for the mysterious damage. See more »
[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.

Leonard Nimoy is credited as director in the opening credits, but is not included in the cast list. There is a long gap between the names of William Shatner and DeForest Kelley, which lasts for the length of time Nimoy's name would have been displayed. See more »
I don't think this one suffers from the curse of odd-numbered Trek movies. It's not as action-packed as "Wrath of Khan", but it's not meant to be. There's something really cool in the idea that Kirk and friends are willing to sacrifice their careers, maybe even their lives, for the life of a friend who could still be dead. The theft of the Enterprise is more exciting than the starship battles in "Khan", and its destruction was sad (a final look at the bridge from Kirk just before he left would've been nice, though). Spock's reunion with his fellow crewmates is well done. Christopher Lloyd makes an okay Trek villain, although he's no Kang. And it's nice seeing Mark Lenard reprise his role as Sarek.
