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.

[Kirk has just spoken very abruptly to Mr. Scott]
He's in a wee bit of a snit, isn't he?
He is a man of deep feelings.
Aye, what else is new?

The film opens with a dedication to the crew of the Space Shuttle Challenger. - European cinema versions contains a short summary of the two previous movies instead of dedication. 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 »
This one is great-I remember laughing my butt off the first time I saw it, and it still works now. Very well done, the time travel angle was better handled here then it has been in other Trek films, shows, etc.-and one thing that makes this work is that they didn't take themselves too seriously. What a romp! The crew come back to save the whales so they can save themselves in the future-and make some commentary on 1986, too.
Personally I donno if this is the best of the run-Undiscovered Country and Khan are its main competition-but I applaud them for doing this; and hope they can lighten up the newer generation too now. It is needed.
*** outta ****, good stuff.
