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 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.
The most acclaimed Star Trek adventure of all time with an important message. It is the 23rd century, and a mysterious alien probe is threatening Earth by evaporating the oceans and destroying the atmosphere. In their frantic attempt to save mankind, Admiral Kirk and his crew must time travel back to 1986 San Francisco where they find a world of punk, pizza and exact-change buses that are as alien to them as anything they have ever encountered in the far-off reaches of the galaxy. William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy return as Kirk and Spock, along with the entire Star Trek crew. Written by

Since the movie was released in 1986 no one could anticipate the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. This is reflected early in the movie when the probe arrives at Earth causing a world-wide power drain and one of the cities mentioned is "Leningrad", which had its name changed to its original name of "St. Petersburg" soon after 1991.

Just before Spock checks the bus map at a stop, you can see several crew members are visible through a large glass window of a restaurant - one of them even clearly wears a "Star Trek IV" security badge, and all are wearing walkie-talkies. See more »

Tearing of the middle meningeal artery...
What's your degree in, dentistry?
How do YOU explain slowing pulse, low respiratory rate and coma?
Fundascopic examination is unrevealing in these cases!
A simple evacuation of the epidural hematoma will relieve the pressure!
My God man, drilling holes in his head is not the answer! The artery must be repaired! Now, put away your butcher's knives and let me save this patient before it's too late!

This one is great-I remember laughing my butt off the first time I saw it, and it still works now. Very well done, the time travel angle was better handled here then it has been in other Trek films, shows, etc.-and one thing that makes this work is that they didn't take themselves too seriously. What a romp! The crew come back to save the whales so they can save themselves in the future-and make some commentary on 1986, too.
Personally I donno if this is the best of the run-Undiscovered Country and Khan are its main competition-but I applaud them for doing this; and hope they can lighten up the newer generation too now. It is needed.
*** outta ****, good stuff.
