What it is: The end of an era
Kirk and McCoy get framed for the murder of a Klingon High Chancellor, Spock and the rest of the Enterprise crew must solve the mystery and rescue their friends from a Klingon prison colony.
This movie more or less marked the end of the original “Star Trek” from the sixties and begins setting things up for the follow-up *Star Trek: The Next Generation”. It’s not as good as the second and fourth movies of the series, but a definite improvement over the fifth of the series. There are a few touches that don’t quite work, but overall, it’s a good story with strong direction and a decent script. The Shakespeare references get a bit tiresome after a while, but I do like the Peter Pan reference that ends the movie. And I wish there was more of David Warner in the movie, but you can’t always get what you want.
