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.
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

A Bandai Nintendo Entertainment System action game was slated to be released in 1989 along with the movie. The game was canceled following the failure of the film at the box office. A prototype has surfaced and is circling the net as a ROM. This is notable for its many basic spelling errors (example: at one point Scotty is named "Scotto") and lack of an ending (the game may have been incomplete at the time this was scrapped). 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.

So what if this is William Shatner's directorial debut? No reason to malign this movie, which is by far the only Star Trek movie that holds true to the Star Trek(any series) episode staple of going where no-one has gone before, with presenting an "action-oriented" episode AND one that "makes you think", two categories you can divide all Trek episodes into. All in all, I'd say Shatner(who directed a few episodes of T.J. Hooker) did a great job.
Star Trek: The Motion Picture also did that staple, but I just couldn't STAND those gray pajamas they had passed off for uniforms.
The special effects could have been better, but I read Shatner's director's diary, called "Captain's Log: The Making of Star Trek V". He said the movie had gone drastically over budget, and they had to use a less expensive effects company.
Jerry Goldsmith's soundtrack is my hands-down favorite(I like his Total Recall score next), and I absolutely LOVE Hiroshima's rendition of the song Uhura sang on the hill, called "The Moon's A Window To Heaven".
