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.
5 years after Pitch Black, the wanted criminal Riddick arrives on a planet called Helion Prime, and finds himself up against an invading empire called the Necromongers, an army that plans to convert or kill all humans in the universe.
When the newly-christened starship Enterprise's shakedown cruise goes poorly, Captain Kirk and crew put it into Spacedock for repairs. But an urgent mission interrupts their Earth-bound shore leave. A renegade Vulcan named Sybok has taken three consuls hostage on the planet Nimbus III, an event which also attracts the attention of a Klingon captain who wants to make a name for himself. Sybok's ragtag army captures the Enterprise and takes it on a journey to the center of the galaxy in search of the Supreme Being. Written by

Enterprise-D corridor sets from Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) were used as Enterprise-A corridors in this film. Very few cosmetic alterations were made so as not to interfere with filming of the television series, which was under way at the same time. See more »
When Kirk is attacked by the "Cat Lady" in the bar, one of the sounds she makes, is clearly a sample from a James Brown recording. 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!
