On the eve of retirement, Kirk and McCoy are charged with assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor and imprisoned. The Enterprise crew must help them escape to thwart a conspiracy aimed at sabotaging the last best hope for peace.
The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
The Borg travel back in time intent on preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochran makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
When the newly-christened starship Enterprise's shakedown cruise goes poorly, Captain Kirk and crew put her into Spacedock for repairs. But an urgent mission interrupts their Earth-bound shore leave. A renegade Vulcan named Sybok has taken three ambassadors hostage on Nimbus III, the Planet of Galactic Peace. This event also attracts the attention of a Klingon captain who wants to make a name for himself and sets out to pursue the Enterprise. Sybok's ragtag army captures the Enterprise and takes her on a journey to the center of the galaxy in search of the Supreme Being.Written by

William Shatner asked Paramount for money to complete the film the way he originally intended, for release on DVD. Paramount refused. To this day, we might never see it the way Shatner originally intended. See more »
The level of whiskey in McCoy's bottle changes during the camping scene (and not because he and Kirk are drinking it). For example, the bottle is mostly empty in the "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" shots, but nearly full when we cut to McCoy saying, "It's a song, you green-blooded Vulcan . . .," then empty again (and in his other hand) when we cut back to him for "God, I liked him better before he died."

I thought weapons were forbidden on this planet. Besides, I can't believe you'd kill me for a field of empty holes.
It's all I have.

The CBS broadcast premiere removed a number of scenes from the movie. 1) All scenes featuring the triple breasted dancing cat woman were removed. 2) The campfire scene was trimmed, ending with Spock producing the 'marshmellon'- effectively removing the infamous 'Row Row Row your Boat' sing along between Kirk Spock and McCoy. 3)The scene between Uhura and Scotty on the bridge as they receive the new orders from Starfleet Command. 4) The Kirk/Spock "I could use a shower" scene in the turbo-lift.

V has some of the best moments in the entire series. The camping scene is both funny, and insightful. I also love the scene in the brig. ("I oughtta knock you on your Goddam ass!"......."Want me to hold him, Jim?")
The only mistake was hiring an effects crew who had never done motion control blue screen model effects before. And that was NOT William Shatner's fault. That was Ralph Winter's and Harve Bennet's fault. Quit blaming William Shatner. The producers hold the purse strings, and hired idiots. Watch the new DVD and you will see model test shots that were not for action blocking, but were the effects team actually trying to figure out how to do the effects. Lame
Watch this movie, focus on the characters, and ignore the space shots, and it's pretty good. I think since they reworked ST:TMP with new effects based on the original story boards, they should have done the same for ST:V for the new DVD. That would have fixed the whole movie.
Besides all of the exterior ship shots, the scenes I would have fixed are as follows:
The turboshaft - Change the deck numbers to make sense and erase the shadow made by the boom holding them up.
All viewscreens - Insert remastered footage digitally to replace the poor rear-projection versions. The new Enterprise would have an even clearer screen, not a grainy, dim one. The only one that worked was the observation windows as they approached the great barrier.
The fall scene at the beginning. Inserting the closeup of Kirk and Spock ruined the entire scene.(Exactly like the parasailing scene in Die Another Day) Seeing a real stuntman is always better than seeing a fake shot of the actor.
