Storyline

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 David Thiel <d-thiel@uiuc.edu>

Trivia

Shots of Spock talking to Kirk while he is climbing El Capitan in Yosemite were actually filmed on a set in a parking lot at a vista point overlooking the valley. The actual face of El Capitan is just visible in the background behind Kirk. See more »

Another Weak Odd Number Movie
31 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

Renegade Vulcan named Sybok has led his Galactic Army of Light to take over a desolate 'peace' planet Nimbus III where the three powers (Federation, Klingon, and Romulan) have joined together. He has taken the three ambassadors from each power hostage. Kirk and the still under renovation Enterprise ride out to the rescue. Only Sybok has other plans, and a young Klingon commander is looking to make a name for himself.

It starts with the guys trying too hard to be funny. Never has 'Row Row Row Your Boat' sound so pathetically old. They prove that they are geezers with too much time on their hands. There is way too much cheese in this movie. The campfire singalong is just the start. The special effects are cheesy. The whole concept of the movie is cheesy. The Klingon commander is an impotent youngster. Even the final reveal is a giant disappointment. The only good comes from a little monologue from Kirk about pain.
