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.
After an explosion on their moon, the Klingons have an estimated 50 years before their ozone layer is completely depleted, and they all die. They have only one choice - to make peace with the Federation, which will mean an end to 70 years of conflict. Captain James T. Kirk and crew are called upon to help in the negotiations because of their experience with the Klingons. Peace talks don't quite proceed, and Kirk and McCoy are convicted of assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor, and imprisoned on Rura Penthe, a snowy hard-labor prison camp. Will they manage to escape? And will there ever be peace with the Klingons? Written by

Gene Roddenberry expressed his displeasure with this film's storyline after viewing a rough cut, complaining that the Klingons were simply used as generic villains and their society and cultural viewpoints never really explored. After the release of the film and Roddenberry's death, Executive Producer Leonard Nimoy admitted that Roddenberry had been right. Subsequent episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) explored Klingon society and culture extensively. See more »
On board Excelsior at the beginning of the movie, the energy wave is coming in at "240 degrees mark six port." According to the Star Trek Technical Manual, this places the wave at 240 degrees clockwise from the front of the ship, and six degrees above that point. When Excelsior takes the hit from the energy wave, it strikes the Forward Starboard side, at about 20 degrees. (The shockwave itself originated from a point on a bearing of 323 degrees mark 75) See more »
Captain Hikaru Sulu:
Stardate 9521.6. Captain's Log, USS Excelsior. Hikaru Sulu commanding. After three years, I have concluded my first assignment as master of this vessel, cataloguing gaseous planetary anomalies in Beta Quadrant. We're heading home under full impulse power. I'm pleased to report that ship and crew have functioned well.

Now this was a movie. The best case scenario for the orginial crew to leave the movie scene, making peace with the Klingons and Sulu finally becoming a Captain. Everything was great in this movie. It had humor, adventure, mystery and just about anything else you could possibly want. The best behind #2.
