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 Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
The Borg travel back in time intent on preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochran makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
The brash James T. Kirk tries to live up to his father's legacy with Mr. Spock keeping him in check as a vengeful Romulan from the future creates black holes to destroy the Federation one planet at a time.
A massive alien spacecraft of enormous power destroys three powerful Klingon cruisers, entering Federation space. Admiral James T. Kirk is ordered to take command of the USS Enterprise for the first time since her historic five-year mission. The Epsilon IX space station alerts the Federation, but they are also destroyed by the alien spacecraft. The only starship in range is the Enterprise, after undergoing a major overhaul at Spacedock on Earth. Kirk rounds up the rest of his crew, and acquires some new members, and sets off to intercept the alien spacecraft. However, it has been three years since Kirk last commanded the Enterprise - is he up to the task of saving Earth?Written by

Although the 'pajama' style uniforms were never worn by the main actors, they were reused for the subsequent films for background characters, with subtle changes. The engineering suits were used in all of the films, up to Star Trek VI. Some of the different costumes were also reused during the filming of The Next Generation television series. A majority of the set pieces were used for decades after this film. The Klingon bridge set was turned into the transporter room of the Regula 1 space station, and a majority of the set became the photon torpedo bay area for Star Trek II, and III. That particular set would have sections used in most of the remaining films and television series. See more »
When the Enterprise is departing from Earth the Sun is seen to rise above the Earth. However sunrise is normally due to the rotation of the Earth, or in the case of the International Space Station the vehicle moving in a posigrade orbit round the Earth. In this case, the Enterprise is moving in the opposite direction, so if we were following it then the Sun would be seen to set if the Enterprise was in orbit. On the other hand, if the Enterprise was moving in an almost straight line, the Sun could come into view as the apparent size of the Earth diminished due to the Enterprise moving away from it. As the size of the Earth does not appear to change, the Sun can only appear to rise if the position of our viewpoint is moving in that same direction, but if that were so, we would be moving upwards, away from the Enterprise. This isn't happening either, so the scene might look nice but it is incorrect. See more »
Of all the Star Trek films, this is the most impersonal and epic - which necessarily isn't a bad thing. This film really isn't about the Star Trek crew, but about the vast visual effects laden V'Ger and how the Enterprise spends 2+ hours exploring it. The score by Jerry Goldsmith only accentuates this epic-ness - this is one of his best scores and brings a majestic quality to the Star Trek crew. Never really is this film funny (unlike 4) or action-packed (unlike II) but regardless will always have a place in my heart because it tries to be as epic as Star Trek can possibly be. Overall, a 7 out of 10 (mostly because of the state-of-the-art effects of its time in 1979 and a superb score by Jerry Goldsmith RIP).
