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

In early 1982, Paramount toyed with the idea of having the film be 3-D. Instead, the studio decided that 3-D was better suited for Friday the 13th Part III (1982). 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.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times
When I was a kid and saw "Star Trek 3" in the theatre, I thought it was great. But watching it again as an adult I can see the flaws in it. It's an enjoyable film, but there's some things that don't make sense.
1. When Kirk goes to the federation, and explains the situation about Spock, why wouldn't they order the casket to be retrieved, and transported back to starfleet?
2. The Klingons want a weapon that doesn't exist anymore. They want the genesis device so they can have a quasi nucleur weapon, but the device blew up in #2. Why didn't anybody point that out to them?
Beyond logical problems so to speak, there's the filmmaking. Nimoy did the best he could with the slim budget Paramount gave him, but crummy sets are crummy sets. Location shooting would have been so much better.
A lot of people will say that Robin Curtis did a bad job compared to Kirstie. I thought she did OK, but probably would have done better if she was directed by Nicolas Meyer like Kirstie was.
