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 go 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.
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.

In the opening sequence when the Enterprise fires Spock's casket at the Genesis Planet, several stars from the background can be seen through the translucent Genesis Planet image. The planet moves slowly to the right as the shot progresses, and yet the stars bleeding through the image from the background remain stationary. See more »
[Spock's dying words, repeated from the previous film]

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 »
A found this to be a disappointing trek film, and expectations were not sky high given the previous trek films (which I was watching in chronological order): The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek the motion picture were good films but not great, this one was pretty weak by comparison. The plot is pretty simple, straightforward and there is nothing really interesting going on: the fact is that Spock was supposed to be dead from the last movie and the fact is that Star Trek should have ended its film series featuring the old cast in the last movie, the movies that followed were increasingly terrible. This one is not among the worst trek films but it is not among the best either. Overall, I give 5/10, for a mediocre sci fi film.
