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.
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 movie's climax was cut almost entirely out due to the writers strike going on at the time, and a result of that was the budget for the special effects being cut drastically. Otherwise, the film's ending would have been entirely different. See more »
At two different times in the movie, the Klingon captain says the exact same line of Klingon dialogue, though it is captioned differently each time. The subtitle for one is "Shooting space garbage is no test of a warrior's mettle", the other is "Then the Federation will be sending a rescue ship." The Klingon uttered both times is: vaj toDDujDaj ngeHbej DIvI'. The actor said the wrong words on one of them. Later, Marc Okrand, who invented the Klingon language and did the Klingon dialogue for the film, came up with a backfit to explain how the same set of syllables actually could have these two radically different meanings.

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.

Trying to convey some message in a film needs to be done with care. The results can be a disaster if in the wrong hands. For one thing, it needs to not be one-sided. It also shouldn't be pretentious. The fourth 'Star Trek' film gives an environmental message and it worked well. For the next chapter, the quest would be to find an answer to an age old question: Is there a God? Part V is one of the most critically hated in the series. After more than 20 years, is it really so bad?
Pros: Cast does fine. Beautifully scored. Great cinematography. Humorous at times. Nice production design. Many of the effects are solid. Moves at a good pace. Some interesting ideas.
Cons: Lacking in plot. Cheesy at times. Some of the effects, especially near the end, are cheap. Direction is sometimes heavy-handed. Some plot holes.
Final thoughts: The series was on a real winning streak from II to IV. With this installment, it takes a bit of a dive. Word has it there were many problems during production. It shows, but the film is far from being a total failure. It still delivers in a lot of ways and isn't lacking in fun.
My rating: 3/5
