It is the 23rd century, and a mysterious alien probe is threatening Earth by evaporating the oceans and destroying the atmosphere.

William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy return as Kirk and Spock, along with the entire Star Trek crew.

They have only one choice - to attempt to time travel back into the 20th century, locate two whales, and bring them back to 23rd century Earth to respond to the probe.
