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.
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

If Spock hadn't died in the previous film, this film would had been called "Star Trek III: Return to Genesis" and would had seen Captain Spock accompanied by Admiral James T. Kirk, as they are ordered to go to Genesis to rescue Lt. Savvik and David Marcus whom are being held hostage by Kruge, whom demands Kirk hands over the Genesis device or he will kill them, unaware Genesis is slowly disintegrating and Kirk and Spock race against time to save Savvik and Marcus before Genesis is destroyed.

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 »
STAR TREK III: THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK picks up where THE WRATH OF KHAN left off with a bittersweet situation. The Starship crew have defeated Khan, but in the process, Spock died, McCoy (Kelley) is beginning to go insane, and Admiral Kirk (Shatner) and the rest of the team have lost control of the Starship Enterprise, but when Spock's father visits unexpectedly, they steal the ship back and thus beginning the search for Mr. Spock, with the evil Klingons right behind them. A decent, but rather weak entry in the Star Trek movies that manages to push past average status with the help of some great special effects and Nimoy's fine direction.
