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 Cochrane 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

The name "Sha-Ka-Ree" is a play on words from the original actor asked to play the role of Sybok: Sir Sean Connery. See more »
When Spock is talking to Kirk up the face of El Capitan, Kirk reaches up for a new hold and his hand, in closeup, slips. Then Kirk's foot slips, again in closeup, from a lower toehold and Kirk falls. The two holds are the same piece of studio "rock face", which looks very fake - the granite El Capitan consists of does not look as glossy. See more »
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 dancing triple-breasted catwoman 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 new orders from Starfleet Command. 4) The "I could use a shower" scene between Kirk and Spock in the turbolift.

Pearls before trekkies -- The only truly great movie in the series.
Naturally it is not loved in America, where any attempt to provide something other than a dumbed-down FX blockbuster is scorned. Yes, the premise is absurd, but, geeze, all the ST premises are absurd. What, you think warp drive, transporters and planets where *aliens* speak *English* are believable? C'mon -- what would ST be without absurd premises?
I love the message, too, that our maniacal quest for god is corruption -- and that when we think we're staring god in the face what we're really looking at is the worst in US. Our gods reflect back at us our arrogance and lust for power. Great point. Too bad the studio felt the need to reign in Shatner's story to make it more politically correct, but the outline of his radical idea remains.
This movie gave me a new respect for a series that I had thought of previously as being merely a lot of entertaining fluff. Thanks go to paramount for giving it the green light. Sad to say that, only a decade later, nothing like this could make it past the Hollywood studio PC censors.
