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.
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.
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 Klingon race. Peace talks don't quite go to plan, and eventually Kirk and McCoy are tried and convicted of assassination, and sent to Rura Penthe, a snowy hard-labor prison camp. Will they manage to escape? And will there ever be peace with the Klingons? Written by

Christopher Plummer's character, General Chang, was originally to have had hair, but as his makeup was being applied for the first time, Plummer liked the bald look and had the makeup technician omit the hair. See more »
During the battle between Chang's cloaked bird-of-prey and the Enterprise, Excelsior flies in to provide an alternate target for the Klingons. From Chang's weapons console perspective the bird-of-prey is spatially located slightly above both ships when he locks target on Excelsior and gestures to his gunner to fire another torpedo. Following the shot of the torpedo leaving the Klingon ship's torpedo tube the torpedo is shown striking the Excelsior directly from below as if that was where the cloaked Klingons were in relation to Excelsior. The weapons console shows the location of the two ships in an overhead view relative to their overall positions in space. The console is not showing a direct point of view of the two ships.

Captain Hikaru Sulu:

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.

I think that STVI is the greatest Trek film ever. The reason I think it is better then ST:FC is because First Contact was on such a large scale; save all of humanity from oblivion. Well, that's nice and all, but STVI was a part of Trek history. Peace with the Klingons, who would have guessed it. Peace with the Russians, who would have guessed it. Which brings me to my next point, it parallaled current world situations (which is why I bring up the USSR). It's a brilliant movie that will last the test of time.
