The most acclaimed Star Trek adventure of all time with an important message. It is the 23rd century, and a mysterious alien probe is threatening Earth by evaporating the oceans and destroying the atmosphere. In their frantic attempt to save mankind, Admiral Kirk and his crew must time travel back to 1986 San Francisco where they find a world of punk, pizza and exact-change buses that are as alien to them as anything they have ever encountered in the far-off reaches of the galaxy. William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy return as Kirk and Spock, along with the entire Star Trek crew.Written by

There's a real threat to the planet as a super race (maybe it's the Q continuum) that has sent a probe to the earth that is causing all kinds of climate change. And
they are sending out all kinds of sgnals causing massive flooding around the planet. They are sending out a signal to the humpbacked whales, the theory
being that if the whales respond the planet is being taken care of.
But in our time the whales were hunted to extinction or at least this species of.
So William Shatner and the gang go back to get some whales and save the
This is one wild and far out story, but it's compelling and draws you in. Best
scenes are Leonard Nimoy trying to fit into 20th century earth.
This film got 4 Oscar nominations in the technical categories. It's still enjoyable after over 30 years.
