Number of Times Seen – at least 5 times (Theater on night before it came out, cable, video, DVD and 23 Mar 2014)
Brief Synopsis – The crew of The Enterprise is sent on a diplomatic mission to make peace with the Klingons despite there misgivings after years of war between the two sides.
My Take on it – This was the final Star Trek movie to feature the entire original crew of the Enterprise.
I was able to get advanced tickets to see this and saw it with a friend the night before it premiered. That was an amazing experience!
This movie came out in 1991 during the time of the fall of Communism in Russia and the quest for peace between Starfleet and the Klingon Empire parallels the real life peace attempts between the US and Russia.
One of the interesting things about this movie’s story is the fact that it has so many different kinds of drama throughout. There is a mystery where Spock plays detective, there is a prison escape, there is a conspiracy, an assassination and above all there is lots of Shakespeare quotes and references.
The writers chose a great way to end the adventures of the original crew.
This being an even numbered Star Trek movie, it was one of the better ones and is entertaining throughout.
Look for Christian Slater and Michael Dorn (Worf) in small roles and Kim Cattrall as a new Vulcan female aboard The Enterprise.
Bottom Line – Fitting end to the voyages of the original Enterprise crew. Great all around script that includes numerous different captivating elements. Recommended!
Rating – Globe Worthy
