Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 01/09/1992
"...Relevant, funny and touching....A stirring adventure..."
New York Times - 11/26/1986
"...There's something rather touching about the sight of that same old Enterprise crew on the streets of San Francisco....[Nimoy's] sincerity is unmistakable, and it counts for a lot..."
Variety -
"...[This] excursion is warmer, wittier, more socially relevant and truer to its tv origins than prior odysseys....[The] technical credits are terrific..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/26/1986
"...It has an irresistibly sure touch, an easy command of its audience. It hits the right buttons, strikes the right chords, plays with our expectations with the right blend of savvy, guile and imagination..."
Total Film - 07/01/2003
"...THE VOYAGE HOME eschews the previous films' heavy themes and puts light laughs centre stage..."

Product Description:

While back on Earth, standing trial for their hijacking of the starship Enterprise (see STAR TREK III), Kirk and his crew are thrust into a new adventure. A space probe threatens to destroy the planet if it is not allowed to continue its longstanding communications with a certain species of Earth mammal -- humpback whales. Unfortunately, there is an obstacle to their simple demand; the whales are extinct in the 23rd Century. So Kirk, Spock and the gang travel back in time to San Fransisco, circa 1986, where they battle culture shock, as well as the clock, while trying to corral a few friendly whales to bring back to the future. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Cinematography, Best Original Score.

Plot Synopsis:

A contemporary Marine biologist becomes involved with Kirk and crew as they undertake a vital mission into Earth's past to save a species whose extinction poses a threat to the very existence of the planet. The Directors' Series version includes outtakes and commentary by director Leonard Nimoy.
