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.
Captain Picard and his crew pursue the Borg back in time to stop them from preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. They also make sure that Zefram Cochrane makes his famous maiden flight at 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.

[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 »
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.
