Storyline

After an explosion on their moon, the Klingons have an estimated 50 years before their ozone layer is completely depleted, and they all die. They have only one choice - to make peace with the Federation, which will mean an end to 70 years of conflict. Captain James T. Kirk and crew are called upon to help in the negotiations because of their experience with the Klingons. Peace talks don't quite proceed, and Kirk and McCoy are convicted of assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor, and imprisoned on Rura Penthe, a snowy hard-labor prison camp. Will they manage to escape? And will there ever be peace with the Klingons? Written by Colin Tinto <cst@imdb.com>

Trivia

DIRECTOR_TRADEMARK(Nicholas Meyer): [Sherlock Holmes]: Spock tells the crew, "An ancestor of mine maintained that if you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the solution." The "ancestor" Spock quotes is Sherlock Holmes, another fictional character well-versed in logic. Holmes, created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is often used as a role model for characters in the Star Trek Universe, e.g. Data in Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987). Leonard Nimoy and Christopher Plummer have both played Holmes on stage and screen. Nicholas Meyer wrote several Sherlock Holmes "pastiche" novels, including "The Seven-Per-Cent Solution", considered by many to be the best non-Doyle story of Sherlock Holmes. See more »

Goofs

When Uhura is conversing with the Klingon listening post. The computer screen beside Uhura's head is displaying the real-time translation of the Klingon's dialogue. The scene was changed at the last minute to add comic relief. The special effects team had already made the computer screen animations, and there wasn't time to change them. See more »

Excellent. Utterly compelling.
8 December 1998 | by SocialDSee all my reviews

This is a taut political thriller that rivals Dune for impact, if not for complexity. The issues explored here are both timely and universal. Somehow, this mixes the Star Trek mythos with commentary on the Cold War, race relations and military down-sizing. It is indescribable how cool this movie is.
