Storyline

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 David Thiel <d-thiel@uiuc.edu>

Trivia

William Shatner was inspired to approach Laurence Luckinbill for the role of Sybok after seeing a PBS presentation of Luckinbill's one man stage show about Lyndon Johnson (1987). See more »

Goofs

At two different times in the movie, the Klingon captain says the exact same line of Klingon dialogue, though it is captioned differently each time. The subtitle for one is "Shooting space garbage is no test of a warrior's mettle", the other is "Then the Federation will be sending a rescue ship." The Klingon uttered both times is: vaj toDDujDaj ngeHbej DIvI'. The actor said the wrong words on one of them. Later, Marc Okrand, who invented the Klingon language and did the Klingon dialogue for the film, came up with a backfit to explain how the same set of syllables actually could have these two radically different meanings.

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

This Film is the Worst of the Series!
6 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

What is it with studios like Paramount that have a proven hit film series on their hands, and figure it can screw around with the budget and formula? Paramount spent less on this film than they did on TMP, which doesn't sound bad until you realize that there's a 10 gap between when the films were made. The $40 TMP cost to make would be equivalent to about $75 million in 1989. This film is the reason that Shatner has never been given a fair chance to direct other films, as well. Every time he turned around, the studio was slashing the budget and making demands regarding the storyline. The fact that this was the one storyline that Roddenberry and Shatner could agree upon for the most part made the freshman directorial task tough enough, but after all the machinations were done, all anyone ended up with was an uneven story and a load of badly executed special effects not worthy of the original series, much less a major motion picture. The most glaring examples: - All of the Phaser effects were severely ashed out and fake-looking. - The shot of the Enterprise going into the great barrier was so obviously a still-frame shot being zoomed away from. At least the popsicle stick that held the Enterprise cut out up was successfully matted out. - God "chasing" Kirk up the mountain... Egads, they may as well have just cut in shots of Godzilla climbing the volcano at the end of "Godzilla 1985," and used thumbtacks to scratch the emulsion off of the film to make electric bolts come out of his eyes at the imperiled Captain Kirk.... Yes, friends, I have a real problem with the look of that last scene, especially.

Thank goodness Star Trek VI was such a redeemer of a film...
