In the wake of Spock's ultimate deed of sacrifice, Admiral Kirk and the Enterprise crew return to Earth for some essential repairs to their ship. When they arrive at Spacedock, they are shocked to discover that the Enterprise is to be decommissioned. Even worse, Dr. McCoy begins acting strangely and Scotty has been reassigned to another ship. Kirk is forced to steal back the Enterprise and head across space to the Genesis Planet to save Spock and bring him to Vulcan. Unbeknownst to them, the Klingons are planning to steal the secrets of the Genesis Device for their own deadly purpose.Written by

Leonard Nimoy did the turbolift voice in the scene when Scotty says "Up your shaft", while exiting the U.S.S. Excelsior. The ending credits lists the voice under the alias Frank Force. See more »
The captain of the ship that Valkris is on, Captain Esteban (of the Grissom) and even Admiral Kirk are caught off guard when the Klingon bird of prey decloaks even though cloaking technology has been known by the Federation at least as far back as Star Trek: The Original Series: The Enterprise Incident.

[Spock's dying words, repeated from the previous film]
Don't grieve, Admiral. It is logical. The needs of the many outweigh...
...the needs of the few.
Or the one. I have been and always shall be your friend. Live long and prosper.

In some UK daytime network television showings, Kirk's line "You Klingon bastard, you killed my son, you Klingon bastard you killed my son" has been slightly edited so now he says "you......you killed my son, you killed my son". See more »
I believe Star Trek III is an underappreciated film in part because it is not accessible to a general audience. It is a pure science fiction film. In my opinion it is the one odd numbered film in the series that isn't victimized by 'the curse' of uneven numeration. I enjoyed the film because of the exciting action and fight sequences, the nostalgia, and the developed characterization of characters I am already so familiar with. I also found the film to be surprisingly spiritual and revelatory, a rarity for a sequel in a commercial film franchise. Anyone with close friends will be touched by Kirk's loyalty and sacrifice for Spock. Highly recommended, 8/10.
