An untraditional Vulcan has kidnapped emissaries of both the Klingon and Romulus people and the Starship Enterprise and its crew have been summoned to the planet Nimbus III to attempt to negotiate their release. Captain Kirk (played by William Shatner) and others find out the Vulcan is a relative of Enterprise’s Spock (played by Leonard Nimoy). They soon find out that this Vulcan has a secret.

That secret compels him to hijack the Enterprise and soon Kirk and his crew are heading out to the center of the galaxy. He is convinced that God is out there and is determined to find him.

Originally released in 1989, this fifth film was directed by Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner. It is largely thought of as the worst of the original six Star Trek films. That might be a little harsh. It is just really different in that besides sci-fi and entertainment this film tries for some depth. We can applaud this try but it is not successful at accomplishing what it attempts. Tries to be all philosophical about the existence of God. What does not help out this flaw is the fact that the action portions of the film are not great either.

The best part of the film involves Spock, Kirk and McCoy (played by DeForest Kelley) around a fire. It involves plenty of humour along with the bond the three men have forged over their time on the Enterprise. More of this would have rescued the film.
