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.
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

When the Enterprise and Excelsior have engaged Chang's ship, both Federation ships have their shields intact, although the Enterprise's have been weakened somewhat, but not disabled. When Chang fires on both ships it's as if neither ship has shields at all. The torpedoes hit both ships' hulls directly. Chang's torpedoes should have been absorbed by both ships' shielding.

Captain Hikaru Sulu:
Stardate 9521.6. Captain's Log, USS Excelsior. Hikaru Sulu commanding. After three years, I have concluded my first assignment as master of this vessel, cataloguing gaseous planetary anomalies in Beta Quadrant. We're heading home under full impulse power. I'm pleased to report that ship and crew have functioned well.

The opening titles shift color - pink, purple, blue, green, and around again. See more »
For all widescreen home video releases (up until the Blu-ray release), the image was opened up, resulting in an aspect ratio of 2.00:1 instead of 2.39:1 (its theatrical ratio). The difference is evident when the home video releases are compared against the Blu-ray, or the deleted scenes that feature on the 2004 DVD. See more »
Now this was a movie. The best case scenario for the orginial crew to leave the movie scene, making peace with the Klingons and Sulu finally becoming a Captain. Everything was great in this movie. It had humor, adventure, mystery and just about anything else you could possibly want. The best behind #2.
