Why watch this film?

A direct sequel to 'Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan', it does not quite have the same shine. Directed by Leonard Nimoy himself, the movie deals with the search for Spock's "Katra" and body, delving into Vulcan culture and questions about life, death, and soul. Although in the background, Klingons, who were the main antagonists of the classic series, are the villains in this story for the first time. It is not the most beloved film among Trekkies, but it certainly keeps the flame of the franchise alive.



Our suggestions

Admiral Kirk's defeat of Khan and the creation of the Genesis planet are empty victories. Spock is dead and McCoy is inexplicably being driven insane. Then a surprise visit from Sarek, Spock's father, provides a startling revelation: McCoy is harboring Spock's living essence. With one friend alive and one not, but both in pain, Kirk attempts to help his friends by stealing the U.S.S. Enterprise and defying Starfleet's Genesis planet quarantine. But the Klingons have also learned of Genesis and race to meet Kirk in a deadly rendezvous.
