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.
A prequel series, set 100 years before the original Star Trek series, which focuses on the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the formation of the Federation and the Earth-Romulan Wars. The series is set aboard the Earth ship Enterprise NX-01, captained by Jonathan Archer.
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 space probe that was destroyed by the Klingon Bird-of-Prey was the Pioneer 10 space probe, which was launched in March 1972 and became the first space probe to pass by and photograph the planet Jupiter. It is currently heading towards the star of Aldebaran, which it should reach in about 2 million years. 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.

So two hours in to this film and I have absolutely no idea what is going on.
Directed by Shatner, this is a colossal vanity project where Shatner gets to be the key person in every scene.
Plot holes and effects are beyond awful, starting with Spock hovering hundreds of feet up a mountain that Kirk is 'free climbing' - with Shatner's physique I find that highly dubious, and then Spock racing to the ground when Kirk falls and saving Kirk by a few inches. Then the reverse later in the film as Spock dons the hover boots again to go up an elevator shaft with Kirk and McCoy apparently holding on but when hovering at the top Spock doesn't seem to be carrying their weight at all.
Ulhura doing a fan dance - bleargh!!!
The 'acting', 'singing', 'jokes', all horrible. It kinda feels like a Bond movie from a similar time where the 'writers' felt the need to take what was a successful formula and then make it all things to all men. Well hey, it was the late 80's, everyone was making money and having fun so why not try and make this movie fun too.
Oh wait, as I write this Spock is now 'witnessing his birth' - what did I miss? how did we get to this scene? and why?
I'm off for a lie down......
