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.
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

On June 23, 1984, U.S. President Ronald Reagan viewed the film in Camp David, but it failed to impress him. He wrote in his diary, "After dinner, we ran 'Star Trek III'. It wasn't too good." Nevertheless, he watched Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) on December 20, 1986, and visited the set of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) during the filming of season four, episode twenty-six, "Redemption", in April 1991.

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.

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.
