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

Robin Curtis was instructed that when she got home every night after shooting that she was to put antibiotics on her ears so that the chemicals used to keep her pointed ears glued on wouldn't cause skin problems. See more »
At about 26:45 Sarek tells Kirk "I had assumed he mind-melded with you. It is the Vulcan way. When the end is near." Sarek claims that Vulcan's do this as it is their way. However, near the end at 1:30:40 the Vulcan High Priestess contradicts this statement, "What you seek has not been done since ages past. And then only in legend." Also, if it is the Vulcan way, why hadn't lieutenant Saavik let Kirk know this in Star Trek II, before jettisoning Spock's body onto Genesis? She would have advised him of the Vulcan way/ritual and at the very least admonish Kirk not to abandon Spock's body there. It cannot be argued that maybe she did off camera because Kirk is confused and defensive of Sarek's accusations and questioning. See more »
[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.

Leonard Nimoy is credited as director in the opening credits, but is not included in the cast list. There is a long gap between the names of William Shatner and DeForest Kelley, which lasts for the length of time Nimoy's name would have been displayed. See more »
The German version has overdubbed most of the Klingon spoken scenes with normal German. Therefore, subtitles are not necessary. The Klingon language with subtitles was restored for the German DVD Special Edition. 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.
