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.
When the newly-christened starship Enterprise's shakedown cruise goes poorly, Captain Kirk and crew put her into Spacedock for repairs. But an urgent mission interrupts their Earth-bound shore leave. A renegade Vulcan named Sybok has taken three ambassadors hostage on Nimbus III, the Planet of Galactic Peace. This event also attracts the attention of a Klingon captain who wants to make a name for himself and sets out to pursue the Enterprise. Sybok's ragtag army captures the Enterprise and takes her on a journey to the center of the galaxy in search of the Supreme Being. Written by

According to George Takei, he originally turned down this film because he did not want to be directed by William Shatner with whom he has had a long standing feud. But Shatner convinced Takei to reprise his role. See more »
The film depicts the Enterprise-A traveling to planet Sha Ka Ree in a relatively short period of time. According to numerous Star Trek-canon sources, the speed of Warp 9 (the top speed of the Enterprise) is between 729 to 1000 times the speed of light. The Center of the Milky Way Galaxy (where planet Sha Ka Ree is located) is 25000 light years away. This would mean that it would take the Enterprise a minimum of 25-35 years to travel from Nimbus III (presumably located at most a few hundred light years from Earth) to Sha Ka Ree. For comparative purposes, the titular ship in Star Trek: Voyager was stranded 70,000 light years from Earth, and with a much faster top-speed than the Enterprise-A, it was stated that it would've taken them 75 years at maximum warp to get home.

I thought weapons were forbidden on this planet. Besides, I can't believe you'd kill me for a field of empty holes.
It's all I have.

I recently acquired the laserdisc of this movie on EBay. I haven't watched it since the early 1990's. The first couple of times I saw it I could see no redeeming factors, but now I realize that is better than any Next Generation movie as well as Star Trek TMP and III. I like it as much as IV. Numbers II and VI were the absolute peaks in my opinion however. As for the Next Generation movies, I will suffice it to say that they have no cinematic scope like the originals. TMP and number III are still better than these next gen's. Why should you like this movie? Here are the top ten reasons: 1) True to the series (Just listen to the phaser sound effects at the end if you don't believe me) 2) Classic framing story 3) Human journey (Faith and the challenges we all have) 4) Beautiful Metaphors (El Capitan and Turboshaft) 5) Great scenes such as being behind the ship's wheel during breakthrough of great barrier 6) A little shorter than TMP 7) Everyone of the original cast had a key role (Not so true in some of the others) 8) Spock was back to his "green blooded" self 9) More light was shed on the characters lives (McCoy at father's deathbed) 10) Gets better with more viewings - Challenge yourself to find subtle references to the original series (How many people noticed that the wheel in the lounge and its "Where No Man Has Gone Before" placard was a reference to the first episode with the Enterprise crew of the movie. That episode had a similar plot to this movie! If Nicholas Meyer would have directed this then people wouldn't be dissing it as much as they do. That is not to negate Mr. Shatner's effort. He is a decent director and a good storyteller, to bad that people don't have better taste in movies these days. Live Long and Prosper my friends.
