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.
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.
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 »

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.

A lot of Trekkie's don't like this movie but for me, it's one of the best. But I don't know why exactly.
As the guests said on the commentary, this one is really about the trio (Kirk, Spock, McCoy) all the time. They really rejoice together, even if there are tensions between them. But as in true friendships, they can overcome their difference and unite about the essential.
I like also the minimalist action and spiritual quest. But, as Kirk notices, it's very unlikely to meet "God" in person. As our creator, he can't definitely live on a planet like us and sits all the day!
I really appreciate the outdoors sequence with the majestic Yosemite Park and the desert other planets. It changes from the claustrophobic space travels.
The art direction was great: the costumes and the Enterprise have a 70's look that is unusual. The music was wonderful with really beautiful cues! Goldsmith delivered the same achievement of STTMP.
It's full of little humorous moments, witty acting.
The movie flows peacefully, offers greats shots (Enterprise on the moon, reverberations in the shuttles, galactic background on the ship, ).
Finally, I wonder if all of this isn't the touch of Shatner as a director. As it's his unique directing, we will never know but for a first time, it was a great one!
