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 intent 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.
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 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.
After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction.
It is the 23rd century. Admiral James T. Kirk is an instructor at Starfleet Academy and feeling old; the prospect of attending his ship, the USS Enterprise--now a training ship--on a two-week cadet cruise does not make him feel any younger. But the training cruise becomes a deadly serious mission when his nemesis Khan Noonien Singh--infamous conqueror from late 20th century Earth--appears after years of exile. Khan later revealed that the planet Ceti Alpha VI exploded, and shifted the orbit of the fifth planet as a Mars-like haven. He begins capturing Project Genesis, a top secret device holding the power of creation itself, and schemes the utter destruction of Kirk.Written by

Beyond the darkness...beyond the human evolution...is Khan. A genetically superior tyrant. Exiled to a barren planet; banished by a Starship Commander he is destined to destroy. Left for dead, Khan has survived. See more »
The scene where Saavik cries was improvised by the Kirstie Alley, and somewhat controversial among the crew. William Shatner protested that the unemotional Vulcans "can't cry", but Nicholas Meyer liked the idea of having a first in the film. Although not stated in the movie, Saavik is said to be a Vulcan-Romulan hybrid, and therefore may have the same issues as Spock (a Vulcan-human hybrid) in controlling her emotions. See more »
In engineering, Kirk asks Midshipman Preston if he realizes how much ribbing Kirk has taken in the officer's mess. Starfleet uses naval terminology, and naval officers do not eat in a mess, they eat in a wardroom. See more »

Okay, let me start out by saying that this is the only Star Trek movie I have ever seen and that I am not a Trekkie at all. In fact, the only reason I decided to see this was because my dad went on about how good it was. And do ya know it, he's right??!! Even if you're not a fan of Star Trek or Sci-fi in general, I still think you'll like this movie, thanks to an excellent performance by Ricardo Montalban as Khan Noonian Singh. He is such a great villain, and my favorite of all movie villains ever! Forget Darth Vader, Khan rules, man! I also enjoyed this movie a lot more than any of the Star Wars movies. This film is really 80's, but, hey, every decade has its own style. I've heard that "The Wrath of Khan" is MUCH better than any of the other Star Trek movies, so I guess I won't be seeing them, or maybe I will, to see how bad they really are......anyway, if you like sci-fi, space, comedy, and a little bit of tragedy (actually, the saddest part was when Khan died--where is the Star Trek gang gonna get all their good villains now??) then you should definitely see this movie. Don't expect "Casablanca" or "Citizen Kane," but this is a good movie that practically anyone can love.
4 out of 4 stars for "Khan."
