Review

Our Score
The Star Trek movie series goes supernova with this outstanding episode directed by Nicholas Meyer, who also gave the first sequel, The Wrath of Khan, massive hit-and-myth credibility. Mirroring world news events of the time (the Soviet Union's dissolution), Meyer crafts a near perfect blend of humanistic messages, affectionate lampooning, epic visuals and fairy-tale imagination as the classic Enterprise crew encounters treachery during prospective peace negotiations with the Klingons. Clever Shakespearean touches also heighten the drama.

Summary

Captain Kirk is framed for the assassination of the Klingon head of state just as the Federation is about to make peace with their old enemies. As Kirk and Dr McCoy are banished to an icy prison planet, Spock tries to uncover the identity of the real killers. Sci-fi adventure sequel, with William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, Christopher Plummer, with appearances by Christian Slater and Michael Dorn from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
