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

When Dr. Gillian Taylor meets Spock and Kirk, they never reveal their names to her, as amplified by the fact that she keeps asking them both, "who are you?" The only thing that she overhears from Spock is "Admiral," as well as "Admiral" from Scotty on his communicator when they are having dinner in the pizza restaurant. Yet when Dr. Gillian Taylor discovers the whales have been taken from the institute, she drives back to the park where the spaceship is, shouting "Admiral Kirk!" How does she know his name if he never told her? We might be able to assume that he revealed it to her at some point that was not seen on screen when they were together, but the last time Kirk and Dr. Gillian Taylor see each other before she comes back shouting his name, she still asks him, "who are you?" To which he says, "Think about it," and still does not reveal his name. *** When Scotty and Kirk speak over their communicator Kirk signs off with "Kirk out," so Gillian does hear his name.

10/10 This is very much a personal rating and not a critical rating. I love this film! It's fun and silly, and it's my favorite Star Trek film. The whole premise of going back in time to save the world by saving the whales, ridiculously fun!! :) It may not be the most serious Star Trek or be the one that makes you look into yourself and challenges you, but not all movies have to do that. I grew up watching this film with my family and I guess my dads love for the film rubbed off on me.
