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

The Enterprise-A has a different bridge layout in this film from others in the series. This is due to the fact that the original bridge set, redressed for use as the "battle bridge" of the Enterprise NCC-1701-D in the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation and the U.S.S. Stargazer bridge in Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Battle, was left in storage outdoors and essentially destroyed by the elements. Subsequent non-canon Star Trek publications have attempted to explain the very different appearance of the new bridge by suggesting that Starfleet ships have bridge modules which can be easily swapped out and replaced with new ones, but this is unconvincing. In practical terms it seems unlikely because the turbolift doors are farther apart (2 stations between them) in the new bridge than the old (1 station between them), which would require ripping out and replacing the entire vertical shaft below the bridge deck.

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-.
