Solid entry in the adventure series is thrilling entertainment for diehard fans and passable stuff for everyone else. The Enterprise is once again the key player in alien negotiations when the Klingon planet suffers a terrible explosion to one of their key mining plants that undermines their economy and threatens their environment. Having only fifty years left before their ozone layer is completely depleted, the Klingons have no choice but to join the worldwide Federation, and Captain Kirk () and McCoy () are sent to personally oversee the political maneuver. Unfortunately, things don’t go as originally planned and the two of them end up getting accused of assassination and sent to a prison colony planet. Lots of great special effects and hearty good fun make this among the better in the series.
