Explaining this film’s plot involves giving away the ending of Part II, so if you don’t want me to spoil it for you then just take my word that it’s a wonderful movie and go rent it. If you don’t mind the spoiler, however, I’ll tell you the basics of the tale: after Spock’s sacrificial demise at the conclusion of The Wrath Of Khan, the planet his coffin was left on suffers the rebirthing process of the Genesis project, and Spock’s body is recreated right along with it. Having learned this, Captain Kirk decides to hijack the Enterprise against Starfleet’s orders and head out to get his friend back, but not without some serious interference from very determined Klingons. The process of saving Spock and taking him to his home planet in time for important Vulcan rituals, plus saving the crew of the ship from the bad guys, is probably one of the most enjoyable adventures that Kirk ever took us on, and this marvelous film is one you’ll want to watch more than once. Followed by an equally superb sequel, The Voyage Home.
