Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
The key to saving the future can only be found in the past.
Fugitives of the Federation for their daring rescue of Spock from the doomed Genesis Planet, Admiral Kirk (William Shatner) and his crew begin their journey home to face justice for their actions. But as they near Earth, they find it at the mercy of a mysterious alien presence whose signals are slowly destroying the planet. In a desperate attempt to answer the call of the probe, Kirk and his crew race back to the late twentieth century. However they soon find the world they once knew to be more alien than anything they've encountered in the far reaches of the galaxy!
You're proposing that we go backwards in time, find humpback whales, then bring them forward in time, drop 'em off, and hope to Hell they tell this probe what to do with itself?!
With 24 seasons over 5 television series and 12 feature films, The Voyage Home has to have the most ridiculous plot in Star Trek's over 45 year history and yet it ends up being one of it's greatest films. Not only does the film feature no real villain, but it's a lighthearted comedy featuring the Enterprise crew time traveling back to 1986 San Francisco to try and locate a couple of Humpback Whales to bring back to the 23rd century to save Earth. The concept is…
A Written Tribute to Leonard Nimoy.
We all have figures in entertainment who touch us in some way. Move us. Inspire us. They may not always be the most virtuous of people. They may not always make the greatest art. We as individuals however have found a reason to respond to them, the person we see behind the camera, or hear behind the microphone, or whose words we digest. And when those people pass on, we feel it more than you would other such strangers. To us they're nothing such - we own that piece of them we have admired, grown up feeling connected to. When that piece is no longer there, we mourn. This happened to me last year…
can you imagine a fourth entry in a lucrative franchise taking a hard swerve into comedy like this these days? although it's certainly choppy since it's still got a goofy, expository and "relevant" sci-fi adventure to deal with, you put a few beers in me and i'll start arguing for it as a Hawksian hangout movie born inadvertently out of nostalgic familiarity and outright fan service.
Quite possibly the silliest piece of media ever conceived.
The very best Star Trek movie as it exists more as a hangout and reaches towards Roddenberry's preoccupation with environmentalism than it does engaging in battle or explosions. They go back to the old trope of being from a different time period and this does register plenty of laughs, Spock, McCoy and Kirk are given the most significant amount of the material, as it should be, and all the actors deliver. I don't think I'll ever tire of hearing Nimoy curse.
I adore this movie mostly for the existence of marine biologist Gillian though, and her adoration for these whales is almost motherly. Her wide eyed belief in a future and space is also commendable. She's ready to jump at…
Some people favor The Wrath of Khan's compelling revenge tale. Others love the Cold War-fueled The Undiscovered Country. And to the .001% that believe the greatest Trek film is that awful turd known as The Final Frontier, go. Just leave. You're making Leonard Nimoy roll around in his grave right now! Anyway, as for me, when it comes to the ultimate Trek film, one that truly surprised me when first experiencing these films, is The Voyage Home.
Closing a story arc that started with "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN", the plot of The Voyage Home sounds ridiculously stupid on paper. Our heroes have to travel back in time to the 1980's San Francisco to retrieve some humpback whales to save the earth from annihilation…
It's a bit slow at first but once they get to the 80's it gets really fun.
I think this might be the most unique film in the series for several reasons, the biggest being it takes place in the past and its about saving the Humpback Whales. It was really funny to see them struggle with all the big differences from the 20th Century and their century such as money, technology, and medicine.
1 thing that I thought was really cool was that the exhibit where they kept the whales is actually the Monetary Bay Aquarium which is close to whet I used to live. I remember there many times and on a school field trip once.
Plus it's actually 3 hours away from San Francisco, just saying.
Shamelessly entertaining camp-fest doesn't even try to keep a straight face most of the time and is probably all the more enjoyable because of that. Where do you suppose they keep the nuclear wessels?

"Star Trek IV" ist immer noch einer der beliebtesten Filme der Reihe, wahrscheinlich auch deshalb, weil er einer der am leichtesten zugänglichen ist. "Star Trek – Der Film" hatte mehr ein "2001"-Publikum im Blick als den durchschnittlichen Sci-fi-Fan, "Star Trek II" war eine direkte Fortsetzung einer TV-Episode und "Star Trek III" baute stark auf seinem Vorgänger auf. "Zurück in die Gegenwart" war nun der erste Trek-Film, der auch von Nicht-Kennern der Serie gesehen UND gemocht werden konnte. Für das Verständnis und die Freude am Film benötigt man im Grunde nicht einmal die anderen Filme gesehen zu haben, es reicht das Wissen, dass es eine Crew eines Raumschiffs namens Enterprise gibt und das sie Abenteuer im 23. Jahrhundert erleben.

This movie was so weird. I went into this expecting Star Trek, and yet I got an 80s buddie movie with time-travel and whales! But however strange it was, I totally loved it!
Some minor issues but overall this is a blast.
A whale of a time.
Tiene un principio algo lento, pero lo compensa con la magia humorística que viene después. Mejores escenas que Checkov y Scotty tendrán JAMÁS.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
