The most acclaimed Star Trek adventure of all time with an important message. It is the 23rd century, and a mysterious alien probe is threatening Earth by evaporating the oceans and destroying the atmosphere. In their frantic attempt to save mankind, Admiral Kirk and his crew must time travel back to 1986 San Francisco where they find a world of punk, pizza and exact-change buses that are as alien to them as anything they have ever encountered in the far-off reaches of the galaxy. William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy return as Kirk and Spock, along with the entire Star Trek crew.Written by

Leonard Nimoy provided the low "wub-wub-wub-wub" sound that the cigar-shaped alien probe makes while flying through space. Sound effects editor Mark A. Mangini had come up with several possible sound effects for the probe, none of which Nimoy liked. Finally, Mangini asked, "Well, what do *you* think the alien probe should sound like?" Nimoy thought for a moment, then did a vocal impression of the sound he thought the alien probe should make. Mangini said, "Okay, let's use that." Nimoy stepped into the recording booth, and did a two-minute voice recording of the "wub-wub-wub-wub" sound. Mangini took this recording of Nimoy's voice and mixed it with electronic feedback and whale songs to make the alien probe sound. See more »
Admiral Kirk tells Uhura to put the warning message from the Federation President "on-screen" but the sound effect had begun already, meaning that Uhura started to do so before Kirk ordered it. See more »

At the begining of the Australian Home video version (before the dedication to the Challenger crew), a prologue narrated by Kirk and containing scenes for the last two movies brings the viewer up to speed on what's happened. This wasn't included in the cinema release, instead the opening titles were slightly altered. See more »
The Voyage Home is the Star Trek film that had the highest box office gross. It captured the imagination of the public who were eager to see Kirk and the crew in present day (1986) San Francisco. Luckily, the film was solid in all aspects and was enjoyed by long-time fans of the series as well. Although the outcome of the film is never in doubt, it never loses the attention of the viewer and entertains throughout. It actually felt fresh and original despite the fact that time travel had been done before (in the TV series) and it was the fourth film in the franchise. Recommended, 8/10.
