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.
A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains Earth ship Enterprise NX-01 during the early years of Starfleet leading up to the formation of the Federation and the Earth-Romulan War.
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

As Kirk is falling from the mountain, with Spock trying to chase after him, it is clear the footage was shot against a green screen. Reflections from the studio lights can be seen in Spock's hair, which despite racing to the bottom of the mountain to save Kirk at high speed, never moves, nor shows any effect of wind. See more »
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.

Star Trek V has taken a lot of heat. Sure, it may be the weakest entry in the series, but when watched with an open mind and in the widescreen version, it isn't too bad. I think William Shatner did a good job in his direction. I enjoyed watching the characters and the story wasn't too bad until the ending came, which I will get to later.
The main problems I had were with the comedy and the characters actions. The comedy seemed forced instead of natural. Take the scene where Sulu and Chekov were lost and Chekov blows into the communicator to simulate a blizzard. That wasn't funny! It was a scene put in the movie to make you think it was funny. It should have been natural, like Kirk saying he needed a shower and Spock saying "Yes." Also, why was poor Scotty fixing the ship in the whole movie. That is all he did!
The ending was terrible. I agree with the line that said "Look for God within yourself," but a cocktail party with the Klingons? And then in the next movie, they said they have "never been this close" to a Klingon ship!
All in all, it is watchable and contains good direction, but "dumbs" itself down in the end. I give Star Trek V a C-.
