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 travel back in time intended 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 name "Sha-Ka-Ree" is a play on words from the original actor asked to play the role of Sybok: Sir Sean Connery. See more »
When Kirk, Bones and spock are flying up the turbolift shaft, the deck number gets higher as they go upwards. However Star Trek ships are numbered the opposite way round with the higher decks having lower numbers. For instance, the bridge (at the top of the ship) is on deck 1. 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.

Star Trek V is perhaps the greatest science fiction film to ever grace the silver screen, indeed, to ever grace the earth. It is a film of unparalleled stature in its unceasing nature to ask the toughest questions of our time: can brother betray brother? does friendship ever outweigh the bonds of family? is there a god? if so, why does he need a starship(LOL!!!!!11)? This movie made me take a step back and reflect on my own search for God and for meaning in this sometimes difficult life. I admit with no shame that Kirk's closing lines on man's search for God brings a tear to my eye, each time I see it. On another level though, this movie not only delves into 'the final frontier' (LOL) but delves into the true echoes of exestentialism in our modern society and seems to ponder if 'echoes' are truly enough for our hustle and bustle society. I think Spock clearly answers this question in his flawless line: "no." Anyways, Star Trek V does what any good Star Trek film should do, and indeed what any film should do, helps us to understand what it means to be human and boldly goes where no man has gone before.
I give this film a 10, but wish I could give it a 12.
